The third in a series of Benoit Pioulard picnic plate lathe cuts. Each one, so far, has been slightly different than the next, and than the other picnic plates that PIAPTK normally releases. This one, has a stark, no-frills letterpress layout (by request of the artist), and includes a unique photographic print by Thomas Meluch, which is signed and stamped. It is also cut at 45 rpm. Limtied to 66 copies, of which PIAPTK only has 30, and the rest will only be available at BP live shows. Includes free downloads.
After a through garage and archives cleansing, I pulled the last few bits of out of print releases and test pressings. Releases from Wooden Wand, Golden Boots, Casper and the Cookies, Jad Fair, Saturday Looks Good To Me, Carcrashlander, Lee "Gull" Baggett, Impossible Shapes, etc.

In a recent Kickstarter update, James "Wooden Wand" Toth, mentioned the upcoming 6xLP Archives Boxset that we, here at PIAPTK are ridiculously excited to be releasing, which ignited a firestorm of email questions, so here are the answers:
Unfortunately, James had a couple details mistaken:
1) Preorders have NOT started yet. They will be announced in early September sometime, with first dibs given to the folks who were generous enough to Wand's Kickstarter, Second dibs given to the PIAPTK Facebook friends (www.facebook.com/piaptk) and Yahoo Groups email list, and whatever is left (if there is anything left), offered up to the public at large through press releases to the blogosphere.
2) There are NOT going to be 300 boxsets... only 200. There will be 100 copies of each individual disc that will be sold after the boxsets have sold out. But, believe me... you NEED the boxset...
