Guest posted a topic in Boards of CanadaThe copy which surfaced in Rough Trade East is up for sale (and before anyone asks - no, I'm not the seller) "Boards of Canada 2013 RSD secret giveaway promo 12" (1 of 6? only 2 known to have surfaced) After our recent move from London to Bristol we decided it was a good time to list this, We're selling this now as we have enjoyed owning it this past year but would like to use the sale to purchase some more records and expand our collection, my girlfriend picked this up from Rough Trade East in London when passing...she went to grab a coffee, flicked through the racks and picked this up. She knew of Boards of Canada but not of this releases significance, It was only once purchased that the staff let her know what it was and had been happening! the staff played this over their system (it's only play!) and took her picture. It was only once she showed me this at home and goggling that we got to learn of the whole intrigue / buzz that this had started to create. It was great to be apart of but we'd now like to pass on this legacy to the next custodian! This is a no reserve auction for what I would now consider to be one of WARP's rarest releases to date and possibly "Electronica's" rarest release in recent memory. I guess this is only the 2nd known copy to be listed for sale with 1 sold on ebay last year. This physical pressing is only less than minutes (spans side a) worth of music / sound / coding / passkey what ever you want to call it but it has it's place in setting BOC's fans and music fans worldwide into a frenzy...a true one off."
