  • 2022 Gold Donors

Hey all, I've been away for a while (a lot of stuff going on in life) and am going to try and get back on here more.

 

I've been watching FNA records lately and they are releasing a lot of stuff that looks good. I wanted to know if anyone has picked anything up by them recently. I got some stuff from them last summer through ebay and the packaging and inserts were really good but some the disc's ended up being blueish/greenish tinted disc. Others were silver pressed. I stopped buying their releases after that. Their averaging about $15 a disc on their website and I don't want to buy any more until I know whether they are silver cd's or not. I've asked on their facebook site when they announced a release but didn't get an answer.

 

Appreciate any info on this.

This is a popular topic. I'm actually in the process of buying a few titles myself. I wasn't looking to buy anything right now, but the limited availability of Freight Train Jane has forced my hand a bit. I've also wanted to get the St. Warren releases for a long time. They won't be around forever so I should probably try to get them now.

 

I recently got Fatal Attraction. I was really disappointed by it. The sound quality was terrible.

Stefan,

 

Thanks for the links. Wow, I've been away for so long. I missed all the info about this label. Most of their early stuff was silver pressed and I've had no issues with. Lately their stuff has been CD-R's and I'm not paying $15 for one. The need to list which ones are which on their website.

 

Demon Doll Records now list which of their release are silver and which are CD-R.

 

I'd still like to pick some of them up if I find out they are silver pressed.

 

Thanks again for the input.

 

Mullethead, sorry to read about the BS you've had to go through with these guys.

I'd "try" make sure the Freight Train Jane is not a cd-r first (if the guy will even respond) unless you're ok with that. Seems that's all the guy is burning now.

I can't really comment on the physical status of the discs as I think they were designed unaffordable for Australians in the first place, but I have heard a few of these albums. It's annoying because I see the band photos and read the bio and get really excited. But the sound quality for pretty much every release I've heard from this label has been absolutely dreadful, and inconsistent.

 

Most the stuff is just terrible demos with no attempt to rescue the sound quality at all. Just stuff that should be given away for free to those who are interested, but not worth any money.

My package arrived with no problems. I believe my copy of Freight Train Jane is #65. I must admit I can't tell if it's silver pressed or not. The fact that the St. Warren releases were digipaks surprised me a bit. I wonder why they went that direction?

Can't tell if it's silver? That concerns me...I'm sure it's a cd-r then. Hold it next to a silver disc & compare.

Ordered 3 times, with one on the way at the moment, from their website and never had any problems at all.

The Freight Train Jane cd is a cdr. Not mentioned as well....I expected nothing less.

 

If it's a "reissue" on a CD-R then it's not a REAL issue, re- or otherwise ... it's a demo.

Well it's not the demo, just a burned copy of the original version with different artwork. st. James signed up for this crap apparently.

Let me rephrase this ... if it's on a CD-R it's not a proper release, period.

I think most would agree.

    • Ridiculous. Wait until you see the kids one I'm talking about. Appallingly untruthful.
    • Carpenter Brut - Leather Terror (Synthwave) Disturbed - Divisive (Metal) Matthew Ward - Armed and Dangerous (AOR) Atomic Swing - A Car Crash in the Blue (Power Pop) Red - End of Silence (Symphonic Metal) Todd Rundgren's Utopia - S/T (Prog Rock) Black Stone Cherry - The Human Condition (Southern Rock)
    • Only caught the highlights, but man, that second goal the Aussies conceded was pure pain to watch. Still cringing just thinking about it. Shame, because otherwise they had a brilliant tournament. It would have been close to a miracle for them to get past Argentina, so I look at the team and their efforts with pride. Oh, and that last minute shot the Aussie dude had... what could have been. But yeah, they gave it a really good crack. As for my Plan B, sorry 'Mericans, but I was very happy to see the mighty Dutch get through and, as per every other world cup, lol, my interest now turns to seeing what they can do. Would actually really love to see them win the thing.  Oh, and speaking of stuff, how awesome were some of the goals from Switzerland in their match vs Serbia. Very impressive. 
    • Simple sound quality / production, but sounds nice. 
    • Nice. Yeah, I don't know mate. Of the songs I posted above, the two from the second album actually seem to be better sound quality than the first. Hard to say if that's across the board, though, or if the sound varies from demo to demo. 
    • I was trying to find the ad running here too, but also couldn't find it on the web. Some moronic thing about there being a new wave or strain or something so we should all wear masks indoors and crowded spaces. We even got a note from our school the other day that in order to go and watch a Christmas assembly the kids are doing, parents will be required to wear a mask now, because of an alleged surge of cases in the local area.  What's become blatantly obvious to me in the last few years is that we are communicated to as if we're all absolute morons. Whether it's via our government or the media, we are spoken to like braindead pieces of shit. Sadly, in many cases they're spot on, hitting their target audience. But as someone with some semblance of a brain (and not even much of it, to be fair), I just simply don't get it. 
    • Yeah, price of tickets. I just saw half priced tickets on Tuesdays for a limited time here too. I don't know what full prices are, but maybe they're only a couple of hundred dollars on Tuesdays.
    • I like it. To bad it’s just a digital and cassette release.
    • Doing you meaning Kent is the vocalist version of ADV.
