RARE & OUT OF PRINT TITLES



We've been getting so many requests for restocks in the store...all the vinyl is sold out again. I wasn't sure what to do. On Sunday evening, I got a call from Lani & had to hop on the next flight to Los Angeles from Montreal...It's was one of the rare times I wasn't flying with four or five synthesizers...so I decided to raid my personal vault of Lps in Quebec for the mail order cult. I crossed the border at midnight with 7 suitcases full of records...about 70 pounds each. Customs tore through all of them but didn't end up seizing them in the end. These are very very limited...And the prices are not inflated. Strictly for the family...Below is a list of what I was able to grab. 
Enjoy!

Max said...

This is great! THANK YOU!!
I do want to as about the remastered BEATBOX, is there going to be anything different about it? Besides it being pressed on clear vinyl.
Keep up the fantastic work
Love you all

HEY MAX,
REMASTERED BEATBOX HAS A CHROME STAMPED BACK COVER WITH DIFFERENT ARTWORK...AND THE MASTERING IS LOUDER. THE MIXES ARE THE EXACT SAME...WE DIDN'T WANT TO MESS WITH A CLASSIC...
IT'S JUST THAT THE VOLUMES FROM SONG TO SONG ARE MORE CONSISTENT AND THE RECORD IS A LITTLE MORE "AWAKE" SOUNDING...THE MAIN THING WAS...WE NEEDED TO PRESS THEM AGAIN...ALONG WITH THE FIRST AFTER DARK...AND JOHNNY WANTED TO DO A CHROME SERIES OF VINYL ON CRYSTAL CLEAR. THE CHROME SERIES ALSO INCLUDES THE CHERRY EP, THE POSSESSED 12", THE RUNNING FROM THE SUN LP, THE TICK OF THE CLOCK 12", AND A REPRESS OF THE FIRST SYMMETRY PROMO ONLY LP THAT IS VERY RARE CALLED "THE MESSENGER" FROM FALL 2011.

Ok, I need more space to put all the IDIB's vinyl that you're going to release this year :)
The AD2 is a double or triple LP?

You're the best!

IDIB said...

AD2 IS A TRIPLE LP GATEFOLD...THE NEW VINYLS COMING ARE SOOOOO SICK! THE GROUPS ARE ON FIRE. WE ARE SO PROUD OF OUR CREW.

Dear Italians, I would probably rob someone for a Glass Candy t-shirt, any chances of restocking the Warm in the Winter?

@uxipi said...

are you proud about your crowd too? :P
I've heard that you're working with a european distributor, is that true? it's a good new for all of the europeans that have just seen how USPS has duplicated taxes ):

IDIB said...

OUR AUDIENCE IS OUR CREW TOO. WE ROLL DEEP.
HA HA...WE ARE WORKING ON THE GLASS CANDY T SHIRT REPRESS PLUS SOME NEW DESIGNS FOR THE STORE. WE PROMISE!

Jazmine said...

One question: the Chromatics 'In The City 12" ' comes with the download? I have been notified that the vinyl has been sent, but I haven't received the email from italians do it better yet.

Love y'all guys.

IDIB said...

IN THE CITY 12" EP DOESN'T HAVE THE DOWNLOAD...WE'VE NEVER HAD IT IN THE STORE BEFORE...AND WE ONLY HAD 30 COPIES OR SO...

UndertheSink said...

How long does it take to process the orders thru paypal? I managed to get to a confirmation screen after payment and it notified me that the charge would show up as 'italiansdoit" on my card but I never got a confirmation email from paypal. I'm sure you guys got swamped with orders tho

Daniel Dooley said...

Any idea when the next batch of pressings (BEATBOX, Night Drive, In the City) will become available?

Mark said...

next year is 'KILL FOR LOVE's anniversary, how are you going to celebrate it? AD2? Some mail order special? I bring the cake! :D

Mark said...

A little bit disappointed that the in the city ep was advertised as the black vinyl edition but what came was the Snow White vinyl edition????!!! Oh well!

Timothy said...

Any idea when the represses and new stuff is dropping?
