[quote]-- The long-running indie Shrimper will celebrate its own 20th anniversary with the April 10 release of Smooth Sounds: Various Artists Play the Future Hits of Wckr Spgt. On this double-CD tribute album, artists like [b]the Mountain Goats[/b], Sentridoh, Jad Fair, and Amps for Christ will cover brand new songs from the lo-fi punk band Wckr Spgt.

News to me, so I'm going to assume I'm not the only one...

Dennis mentioned the anniversary a while ago on the Dial Square Tapes site, before the last Bugskull LP came out. Really looking forward to this, but can't believe he's going 20 years...

[quote="Dennis Callaci"]
"All of them sparkling clean digital hand-jobs (of late) got me to thinking about the years I spent renting a room above a former farmer's garage, dubbing tapes when my better-minded friends were going to college and/or fucking with crystal meth. Time flies (except when you are constantly typing in 0s and 1s to get someone's laptop to cum) and certainly somewhere, a 16-year-old kid is online awaiting some hilarious critiques of the 20th anniversary Shrimper compilation..."

In the current state of my living arrangements, it's one of the only websites I'm alowed to order something from.

So I don't really care about indie ethos.

I think buying it in general helps out the indie ethos, I'll be purchasing a digital copy on release day.

Depends on how true to the Indie ethos you think Midheaven's postage to the UK is. Set myself up with an account, was about to order, saw the postage & removed it from my basket. I'll go elsewhere & get it for 2/3rds of the price.

wtf is up with that? i just mailed some CDs to the UK and it wasn't too bad, why are y'all being screwed?*

*could it be revenge for decades of high-priced but oh-so-desireable "import-only" artifacts on our side? ;)

Matt, just because you don't use Amazon doesn't mean it's not legit. It's certainly better than iTunes and it offers a lot of good free songs of the day and samplers and stuff. Snobbypants. :|

Please explain? I'm far less snobby than the average #tMGer, I believe.

After Midheaven ignored multiple emails, I gave up on them and ordered it through Amazon. I got it last night and my cover was remarked with some hand drawn artwork. Anyone else get a remarked cover?

Funny, they emailed me back superquick when I wanted to check whether 'MC' was gonna be a tape. There's a few pictures [url=http://www.mountain-goats.com/forums/read.php?4,100154,101939#msg-101939]here[/url]. Mine's got a small cock on it. I like therainechild's best.
