It's startling how vinyl has taken an even bigger hit after the digital revolution. I figured if turntable owning folk wanted to purchase a physical product they would go for vinyl. Apparently less and less people own turntables. Not only that, but a lot of people who own turntables are opting to spin MP3s. So they're not going for 12"s the way they used to. 12"s were a huge part of hiphop right up until a few years ago. It's now at a point where we have to limit our vinyl output by a LOT.

I know there's been talk about how it has "helped" vinyl sales but I call hogwash on that. For indie artists it's absolutely not true. Yes, big chains started selling classic (non-hiphop) albums on vinyl. We'll see how long that lasts.

Anyway...dems my thoughts. And this is why we're holding a vinyl sale. We're trying to kick start some sales on items that sell reasonably well in all other formats.

That is so so so odd. Because the Frenchkiss vinyl came out in the UK and it was an import. An extremely limited release. However, it was released at a time when vinyl had a bit more demand and there were more indie outlets.

it was sad to see that b dolan and prolyphic/ reanimator didn't have their full lengths on vinyl, but at least there were singles for both.

Almost every full song from The Failure appears on the Live Evel EP. So I don't think that's too sad.

However, there isn't a single label in the world that can press vinyl when it's clear that the indie stores that would typically hold this vinyl are shutting down left and right. And the reason why is "indie" fans are not going to stores to purchase this product. They ARE purchasing items online when they can find it, but we've also lost online outlets who are willing to sell vinyl. The SFRstore sells pretty well but our store is only one outlet. Pressing up vinyl is not an easy or cheap process, neither is mailing it out, so we're kind of stuck between a rock and a hard place here.

I'd love to release every item we have on vinyl, but we'd find ourselves in an early grave if we did everything we wanted to based on hopes.

Vinyl sales have dropped everywhere over the past few years. Not just with us. And there are many reasons as to why. But we're going to keep making certain items available on vinyl out of love for the format.

The cost of pressing a quality-packaged vinyl these days is truly out of control.

That said, I still don't own an mp3 player...I'm disillusioned that the "cavepeople" among us can't save this format.

The physicality of owning an object with large pictures emblazoned on it is far more enticing than spending my shit-job wages on a file which can be culled out of the ether and will disappear once the Zombie Apocalypse rears up.

It sucks when you have to move, but exercise is a good thing.
