Electronic Music discussion: shifting vinyl releases.
Written August 16 2011
I've got a 7inch single coming out soon on a label called Metal Postcard Records.
sounds like this:
500 copies have been made, and I've been sent 50 of them.
Just wanted to hear some of your experiences and tips with what to do with your own vinyl.
I was planning on going round a few record shops with them, selling some at gigs etc.
Any knowledge is appreciated.
I Have absolutely no knowledge or experience to offer .... just wanted to say Congrats on the release, I loved fitness fanatic! Great to see it man )
btw. it looks an interesting label. how did you go about it, or did they 'find' you?
its my first vinyl release, so im excited.
i got approached through soundcloud.
theres a good range of music on the label.
hahaha awesome cover eddie. you been to mono with it yet? i'm sure they'll take some off ya - sale or return.
actually they were the first people i phoned this today.
they're up for taking a couple of copies.
im gonna wander round a few places tomorrow... it was pishing down today.
oh my, i want.
please make some available for internet purchase.....at once!
cool. cool. ... but does it come with the pajamas?!
of course i'll buy one off ya!
Hey man, well done! I'll buy a copy too.
I did a load of 12"s a few years back and tried to hawk them round record shops. In my experience it's more trouble than it's worth: generally people won't buy something they've never heard of that's in amongst a rack of other records. I'd say your best bet is at gigs. Maybe on-line too...
yeah i reckon your right re: gigs.
the label are gonna punt copies online, plus they have a bit of distribution.
ill repost the link when its officially out.
em411 peeps deserve the scoop on my shizzy vinyl bizzy.
glasgow people: i stuck a couple in monorail and love music (used to be avalanche up near queen street)
nice one. I should be in town on Saturday (I'm body doubling for Brad Pitt) I'll try and pop in get a copy..... I don't have a fekin record player though
replicalex did u get a job as an extra in that zombie flick?
i went for an audition. no luck.
i had a plan to hand a copy of my zombie themed single to mr pitt.
Damn - that would have been the perfect promo man. You make a great Zombie too, what were they thinking?
I didn't even know about it until last the weekend driving through G Square wondering what the fuck was up with the traffic...
besides, the only way I could body double for Brad is if he went on the booze for 10 years, with no exercise, contracted a wasting disease and got beaten with the ugly stick a few hundred times... and then only maybe.
I saw this and it made me think of you.
