The 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."

So they found three, right? I'll take my chances looking for one the other three. One of these days. Maybe. Nah, prolly not.

 

(seriously though, are there some still out there?)

"This pairs well with the Caustic Window LP, or for those on budget, Analogue Bubblebath 5"

 

 

"(1 of 6? only 2 known to have surfaced)"

Whoa, hang on, guys! I got an idea! How about we all pitch in and buy the record together, and then distribute high-quality MP3 copies to those of us who help pay for it? What do you say?

Sadly, being the dementia-addled completionist that I am, I would contribute :unsure:

No to be over-ly anal about this, but the seller is a lying shit.

 

Condition:
Vinyl: Played once
And here's an actual audio clip recorded in Rough Trade at time of only play:

 

Yeah mate, that and when you played it and posted it on YouTube!

you are buying one genuine piece of hype, that's why

 

 

TH still hasn't grown on you then oscillik? :happy:

 

I'd agree with you that the price people want for this is beyond the realms of reality. Even if I was a billionaire I'd pay about 40 quid for it, top wack.

doesn't matter what my opinion is of the final album - the fact remains that this item is a part the ridiculously overblown and grandiose marketing promotion that led up to it's release.

It seems for me, that with this whole thing Boards of Canada try to tell us, that the vinyl is still relevant and unique in some way.

You would assume, that as there are 3 copies of this still to find (out of the supposed 6 issued) that as its been a while, the shop owners are keeping it for themselves!

Is there any credible source that talks about 6 of these being released? I still think it was all part of the speculation of how those 6 different number sequences would be let out to the public, and people assumed it was all on different records. Instead, they used different ways of broadcasting those sequences. So, I still think there are only 2. But I could be totally wrong here.

bocpages have the most detail about this. "Apparently" 6 vinyl issues, all with the same code though. This could easily be mis-interprepted as 6 vinyl discs because there where 6 codes. We know 2 discs exist, both with the same code...

I guess the whole thing rides on the credibility of this post, and the person that made it (Aesthetics)

EDIT - 3 discs where found, the third in Edinburgh. I reckon the other 3 have been well hidden away by shop owners now, in their own personal collection. After all, they have passed serving their purpose!

      FSOL's contribution to Record Storey Day 2017 is a triple-LP set called Archived : Environmental : Views
      One can guess that the first LP will be tracks from the archives, the second LP will be pieces recorded as part of the Environments series, and third will be 'Viewed from' tracks.
       
      I've been given the tracklist for the third so far:
       
      A1. Viewed from Pushkinova 7
      A2. A Place in the Wilderness A3. Viewed from Below the Surface (2017 Version) A4. Viewed from Little Boats A5. Late October A6. The Oldest Lady B1. Viewed Through Apertures B2. Viewed from an Obscure Angle B3. Viewed from Fer Hills B4. Viewed from Across the Room B5. Viewed from Rosey's Perspective B6. Viewed from Under Leaves B7. Source of Uncertainty (Original Long Mix) B8. The House in the Woods B9. Viewed from Above   (The 'Rosey' in B5 is named after my dog, which is pretty exciting).

      Michael Fakesch's 1999 album 'Marion 'was recently reissued by Bit-Phalanx in a deluxe double cassette/digital edition! It includes unreleased tracks as well as the 3 Demon EPs which have never been officially digitally available until now! BoC fans take note as their remix has only been available as a low quality vinyl rip previously:
       

       
      Purchase it here: https://bitphalanx.bandcamp.com/album/marion-20th-anniversary-edition
