Collapse EP - Japanese retailer preorder madness

Recommended Posts

Japan has quite literally 'collapsed' under the weight of the forthcoming release of that bloke from Cornwall. Rev up your wallets, it's retailer-exclusive preorder bonus time! *gameshow theme music plays*
 
Tower Records get the party started with a Collapse postcard set. Remember that thing where the Aphex logo showed up around the world and IDIOTS postulated things like a new album? Now you'll never forget with these postcards that you'll never send to anyone EVER!

Next up is this fashionable badge from HMV Japan. You could wear it to the next Aphex gig and/or show!

Not to be outdone, Amazon Japan can't help but love magnets, and would just love it if you could put this one on your refrigeration unit.

Disk Union couldn't care less about magnetism. They're more about stickers, so slap this 'LARGE FORMAT' one on the next smart ass who says 'Actually, Steinvord was Mike Paradinas'

Thought that was your lot? Hell no. Japan thirsts for preorder bonuses like a nation possessed, and Aphex Twin is no exception to such rabid consumerism. Coming to participating retailers and while stocks last, you could be the proud owner of one (all?!) of these classic Aphex CD reissues, which will - are you ready for this - all include their very own 'Collapsed' artwork card sleeve slipped in for the lulz! "Watch your Blender templates templates templates!"

I should probably say that there was genuinely no intent to reference recent events in Japan, apologies to anyone if it came across as a bit thoughtless.

Was hoping for "transparant window stickers" of the collapsed logo.... that would be sweet....

Would love to get my hands on a sticker or postcards.

 

Do we expect these to be in-store purchases only?

Free postcard if you pick up the EP in the store where the JP collapsed sign occurred

Some of my friends are in Japan at the moment.. fingers crossed they can bring back some stuff for me!

 

 

edit: also that transparent sticker could be easy to bootleg, you can get consumer grade transparent labels for laser printers pretty easily.. hmm..

Don't eat at least 2 1/2 hours before consuming

 

Begin with three and drink some water

 

You can always eat more after you start to feel the afx:)
