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...
The PIAPTK family will be be on a West Coast roadtrip from July 19 until Mid August. Feel free to buy during the break, but no orders will ship until mid-late August. You WILL be able to enjoy your instant downloads in the meantime, however!
The debut release from Owen Ashworth of Casiotone For The Painfully Alone's new project, Advance Base is finally here, and it's a split with Owen's buddy from Vermont, Hello Shark. Ltd ed of 400 copies in hand-screened Arigato paks.
A last minute release to coincide with their European tour, I am ecstatic to work with Viking Moses again on this split picnic plate lathe cut. This is a split with his tourmate, Joey DeMarco, with whom I've fallen in songwriter-love.
These should ship by July 18th, hopefully. If for some reason the Advance Base records don't arrive by then, (which we are assured they will) they won't ship until mid-August, due to the PIAPTK Family summer road-trip.
