REISSUE: Hound Chronicles & Hot Garden Stomp

Hello, what's this?

http://www.midheaven.com/item/hound-chronicles-hot-garden-stomp-by-mountain-goats-cd

[quote="The Man Himself"]
The songs you find on this compact disc originally appeared on two cassettes. To elaborate further about that—to say, for example, that the songs originally appeared 'on two cassettes that were released in ____ and ____'—would misrepresent the spirit of their time. These tapes did not have release dates. No one anticipated their coming into the world, and very few noticed or cared. All previous eras cross at some point into the territory of the unimaginable, and so it is with the days of tape-trading. The obscurity in which these songs were incubated and born and brought into their faint light is a state of being which has passed into history.

Somebody tell me we only celebrate April Fool's day at the beginning of the month.

Both will be reissued as a single release on CD or mp3 available June 26th.

Order first. Ask questions later. That's my strategy.

I am shocked this reissuing project is actually happening, truth be told. As much as JD is all about heading forward and being only concerned with what is to come and all that jazz. I think it's great, but I'm completely shocked.

Um...WHAT? I've never heard of this place before - has anyone used it before and know it's legit? It seems to have other tMG stuff listed on there, this just all seems so out of the blue.

Awesome, thanks you guys. I just get nervous sending money info. to places I've never even heard of others interacting with before. Pre-order ahoy!

How have you never heard of Midheaven Mailorder? Strange.

Wow, this was surprising to read, to say the least! There were plans for Shrimper to put these out on CD about 10 years ago (something alluded to in the liner notes to Protein Source or Bitter Melon Farm, IIRC), but it died on the vine.

And, yeah, Midheaven is the mailorder arm for Revolver USA distribution, who manufacturers and distributes Shrimper, so they are beyond legit and one of the finest indie institutions this country has. Revolver helped pay for the manufacturing of Nothing for Juice way back when, in exchange for favorable territorial rights -- helped out one broke indie dude!

:( I waited and refreshed the page in case an icon hadn't loaded or something. Aside RE: June 20-year-old lofi rereleases, funny that this isn't, while Drag City are putting out Silver Jews' Dime Map/Arizona Record on tape when as far as I'm aware they were never tapes in the first place.

Folks ordering who didn't buy the [url=http://www.midheaven.com/item/smooth-sounds-the-future-hits-of-wckr-spgt-by-va-2xcd]Smooth Sounds[/url] compilation, might I recommend adding it in? It's $7.75 tape/$9.25 CD for 30-summin tracks and I have such a lot of fun every time I listen to it.

I'm waiting for the 220g, virgin, dye-blackened vinyl, boxed LP edition.

[quote=StatusFrustratio]while Drag City are putting out Silver Jews' Dime Map/Arizona Record on tape when as far as I'm aware they were never tapes in the first place.[/quote]

7" and LP*/CD respectively.
[size=x-small](*not 10" per DC's recent update)[/size]

QFT. Also can't believe the tape is still in print. Ltd. to a few hundred iirc.

Got it, that makes sense I'd just never been made familiar with this arm of their outfit. Very exciting!

I wasn't around in the heyday of Shrimper and when we've done mail stuff in the past I've ordered through 3BOS or others linked to on here - how would I have?

Hooray. I asked for this sort of thing [url=http://www.mountain-goats.com/forums/read.php?2,105471,105484#msg-105484]a while ago[/url]!

do I have to hit you over the head with it?

Very exciting! Hope [i]Taboo VI[/i] will eventually see a re-release too.

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

I don't think that will ever happen Evil. I'll refer you to paragraph 1 of the protein source of the future... now! liner notes:

"from the outset I'd like to warn any purists among you that neither The Hound Chronicles nor Hot Garden Stomp will be include here, since those two will appear together on a single CD at a later date. The only party still absent once I finish cleaning house will be Taboo V!: The Homecoming, the existence of which I do not deny, but which I am in no hurry to reexpose to the harsh light of the sun." John Darnielle, March 1998

Its amazing to think that that got written a measly 6 years after the releases of HC and HGS and that now, 14 years on (20 from the release of the actual cassettes) they'll finally be rereleased.

I wonder what the exact source is for the reissue? I also wonder (don't laugh at me) how good the sound quality will be.
