Is the figure of 500 for the ZM LP accurate (Cali?)

There were 1000 Zopilotes pressed on vinyl by 3BOS.

That's what I originally thought, but the web is surprisingly vague on that detail. I found the info on a LPTJ page from '05. The lack of a 3BOS archive is a pity, so thanks for the clarification.

yea 1000, thats why i say HGS is rarer.

well, i'm not sure that link worked, but if you go to archive.org, you can find the cached version of the page from march 2005, where TA says ZM is 1000 copies (though TA confirmed that himself).

The Mountain Goats' 2005 tour is expanding -- new dates announced!

January 29, 2005

Both Zopilote Machine and Nothing for Juice reissues by the Mountain Goats are now available for preordering. We anticipate having finished copies to ship out sometime in March, with an official release date in late March or sometime in April. There is a preorder special for both of these CDs for $20 postage paid (U.S. customers only), too, which will be good through the release dates of both. See the respective release pages for Zopilote Machine and Nothing for Juice for those ever-important Paypal shopping cart buttons. The vinyl of Zopilote Machine will not be as insanely limited as we previously thought due to demand; we're pressing 1000 copies on vinyl, so we should have these for sale for at least a few months after release. Also, some of you have inquired about bonus tracks on these releases, and we regret to say that neither release will contain any bonus tracks, unreleased songs, etc., despite what we have said before about the possibility of this. Sorry! These will be straight reissues of the Ajax versions, with some minor typographical tweaks.

We've also put up 3 MP3 downloads from each release for your listening pleasure. Enjoy.

January 10, 2005

The Mountain Goats will be making a short West Coast trip in February, with two dates announced in Los Angeles and Seattle so far.

January 6, 2005

Happy New Year from 3 Beads of Sweat. We hope your 2004 was peaceful, sane, and chock full of good music, good TV, etc. I can't complain too much about how the year turned out, I guess (except for the obvious political debacle in this country in early November). The Red Sox won the World Series, so that leaves my White Sox and those pathetic "Cubbies" standing high and dry as the 2 most tragically inept franchises in all of baseball -- good times, good times. But anyway, that Yankees/Red Sox ALCS will rank up there as one of my favorite postseason series evvvar, not necessarily because I'm a huge Red Sox fan but more of a Yankee hater who loves good beisbol.

MOUNTAIN GOATS EARLY RECORDINGS TO BE REISSUED

2005 looks to be a good year to return to releasing records, and we'll be starting off with two long-promised reissues of some early Mountain Goats albums, 1994's Zopilote Machine (their first full-length release not on the cassette format) and 1996's Nothing for Juice, which features collaborations with Graeme Jefferies from the Cakekitchen/This Kind of Punishment and was one of the last MG albums featuring the primary lineup of John Darnielle and Rachel Ware. Zopilote will be released on limited-edition vinyl for the first time, while NFJ will be CD-only since it was released on vinyl by our old label Ajax way back when. We'll have some MP3s for your listening pleasure and preordering information in a few weeks.

We also have another release planned for 2005 by a band whose name should ring a bell among the Ajax faithful -- stay tuned.



MOOPS MUSIC -- WHAT THE HECK IS THAT?

We have finally launched our new sister site Moops Music. Moops will serve as the distribution arm for 3 Beads of Sweat's label releases as well as Ajax Records' remaining backstock, and will also act as a distributor for other labels that we hope to bring into the fold over the next several months. Check out the nifty little logo drawn up by Chicago's own Ivan Brunetti...pretty sweet, eh?

If you are looking for the mailorder stuff previously displayed here at 3bos.com, the Moops site will have everything up for sale shortly if not already. You, of course, can still purchase 3BOS label stuff here -- Moops will have all this stuff, too. But from now on, anything not on 3 Beads of Sweat will no longer be offered here, and that includes releases by the Mountain Goats, Art of Fighting, etc.

T-SHIRTS!

We finally got off our duff and made up a batch of 3 Beads of Sweat t-shirts featuring the Daniel Clowes-drawn "sweaty guy" logo. Check out our Merchandise page for the full array (well, 3 different colors, in any case) -- we got yer white, yer light blue, and yer ice gray colors to choose from, in sizes M, L and XL. Woof.

These are also available at moopsmusic.com, along with 5 different varieties of Moops Music shirts. Yes, we went nuts on t-shirts.

My collection got a little better tonight. I won three out-of-print tMG CDs on eBay. NFJ, PSOTFN, and ZM. The 3BOS versions. I've now purchased all of these albums twice (iTunes store), and I hope to someday purchase NFJ and ZM on vinyl.

I was keeping an eye on that. I put in a lowball bid a few days ago, but I got outbid and the reserve still hasn't been met at $130. CCTTST has been way out of my price range every time it's shown up on ebay. One sold last week for over $300.
May 02, 2011 02:59PM | Re: What say we help each other out?
Got my clear AED in today. Thank you, lshibley. It arrived in two business days all the way from Oregon to DC. You are aces all around and my AED LP collection is now complete. I also got the wedding record and tropical depression in the mail today. Gonna (finally) order the Japanese AED in a few. It's a good day.

Local record shop, believe it or not. Bought a total of 18 copies.

Eivind: Just called them,and they no longer have it. I feel like I come across it fairly regularly at pretty normal prices (~10 USD), though. I'll try to grab it if I see it in the near future.

Great, thank! Guessing I could be able to afford it up until about 15 USD (though I generally don't think EPs should cost much more than 5 USD, but ah well). Must be new and (near) mint though! Very important. If not, the universe will implode. Thanks again!



Why's everyone in this thread a f***ing Mountain Goats fan?!

Hm, if I were to send a copy of Mountain Goat to someone who frequents tMG shows, could that someone be able to get it signed by JD?
