Why bother writing songs like Stairway To Heaven or Bohemian Rhapsody when you can press a $2500 0:40 hiccup !!! :-)
  • Xanzay
Always remember, there are really great liars out there in this world ---------- / ----------- / 'Have' it... not.
  • breakingthesystem
Talk about underwhelming .... Save yourself 2K, have a listen to the video link then move on with your life...
  • Vivaral
This is what i believe to be a proper crock of shite of a record. A 12" only released to stir up the vinyl heads and have money been thrown around.
  • Shakar
Sounds like you just proved him right. Another Canadian embarrassment.
  • Error parents
That wasn't really the intention at all. It was to generate hype for the (widely available) Tomorrow's Harvest LP. Of course there will be collectors who want to own this but there's no actual music on here
  • Quellik
So that means all 4 are discogs, with 1 having been sold.
  • Butius
Funny that it's owned by 18 people considering only 6 was made ^^
  • Marr
Yeah it seems a little sketchy to me too. hmmm
  • generation of new
$2500 for a forty second track. WTF is wrong with you.
  • Dibei
haahhaa crazy that this record is sold for 2215 euro - damnnnn
  • Tinavio
Oh my gosh, got my own copy in posession at last! The forth one known to exist
  • Qusserel
I want more info on that, my man. Where'd you find it? How much was it?
  • doesnt Do You
where did you find your copy? There have to be more out there somewhere
  • Tojahn
Please post better pics of the record for Discogs! Closeups of the runout groove etc would be great!
  • Chi
I wonder what pressing plant allowed them to press only 3 (or even the claimed 6) copies when the minimum on most plants are at least 100-150 units (unless they were pressed as "test pressings" or something?)
  • Dalallador
It's possible these were cut as vinyl dubplates (different from lathes). Meaning that each copy would actually be slightly different, though the differences would be so minute as to not to be noticeable
  • you secret
I think it is likely that they were lathed rather than pressed. Takes longer per record but if you're only making 6 and it's only 40 seconds in length it isn't much of a hassle. That way you can skip a plant and their mandatory minimums.
  • Thordira
its boards of canada. they do whatever the fuck they want.
  • Hunaya
yeah, there are several places you can press your own single vinyl for ~20-30$, not to mention vinyl cutters that are available on ebay for those who have $$ and want it at home
  • Vikus
A pressing plant which gets the contract to press one of the most popular vinyl albums of 2013 of course!
  • Purestone
+ seeing the picture of the label, this is actual pressing for sure, not cutting.
  • Cel
Or ask the plant to press only 3 and pay for 100.
  • Opimath
lol... you can cut even one vinyl with cutting lathe
  • Doukree
Never. This was a vinyl pressed as part of a cryptic marketing campaing for the Tommorow's Harvest album. Only 5 copies exist and I believe only 3 have been found.
  • Malogamand
The is only a few of these in the entire world and if you are a huge Boards Of Canada fan and have the money to own it for 5K good on you. I have seen squiggles on paper selling for 5 times that and people don't batter an eye lid to that in the art world.If I had the money I'd buy it and frame it because the value isn't in the 40 secs of noise.
  • Malodred
All true except Picasso wouldn't have sold a substandard artwork for a lot of money while he was alive. Now, yes. But not while he was breathing. And let's be honest... what's on this record that can be considered the kind of art that this particular artist usually creates?It's the music equivalent of Maurizio Cattelan's "Banana Taped To A Wall", if you know the story behind that one. And just like the original banana and its replacements (the ones that actually sold, after the first one rot away), these are copies, the original master disc has probably been chucked away. But wouldn't THAT be the one that people should be after, at this point? I don't know.I still think that the market decides the price, but to release a record in 6 copies when you know you have a few million fans is a bit of a dick move, and an attempt to have a "super rare, super sought-after" release in their catalogue. And it worked perfectly.I'm not even a fan of the band and I know about it, I just got here reading up on the hype surrounding this particular release, and my conclusion is that the prices that people are willing to pay for a plastic disc with some noise on it only because those two guys from Scotland put it out there are just a sign of borderline insanity.This is just from my own psychological perspective and is not aimed at convincing anyone that this release should be worth less. Like I said, the market decides. I think that the artists are seeing this and having a chuckle.It's a very interesting world we live in, at times.
  • Peles
Totally agree! Some people are envious or are simply clueless as to the nature of supply and demand. Some people would pay tens of thousands of dollars to have Bansky shit in their faces. If you've ever watched the Antiques Roadshow, I've seen things you'd need to PAY me to own even though it might be worth 450000$. Who are you to say what's overrated or not? If Picasso made an edition of three napkins with three lines and an ink spot, would you just give it away? BoC are one of the most well respected and sought after electronic acts of the last quarter century. An edition of three 40 second records, and all the marketing that went into it make this puny release almost as legendary as the early, as yet unseen/unheard BoC tapes.
  • Madis
12 users own 3 known copies of this... mindblowing
  • Kagda
Disregarding the fact that some idiots are paying 5000 euros for it, it is a quite interesting piece of plastic. I think they've sampled a number station, a shortwave radio station characterized by their unusual broadcasts which consist of spoken words, but mostly numbers.They emerged short after world war 2 and its widely assumed they were used to broadcast covert messages to spies.
  • Brariel
Unsure as to whether they will have sampled a number station, I've heard of people getting into trouble for the use of samples from the conet project. Although I wouldn't put it past BOC considering their use of the National Film Board of Canada materials.
  • Zetadda
is this a introdution for an upcoming album? if so then i´m very glad to have them back on the Music production, these two artists know how to make amazing musics.
  • Ionzar
Thanks, where can i purchase or listen to their upcoming Album?
  • Chankane
Been out of the loop or something? They already have a pre-order up for their new album....
  • fabscf
perfect marketing.includes this the bidder on ebay (regarding that 4 days left, 73 bids and actually: almost 5000 $.) ? how can be someone so crazy? actually i can not believe this.
  • Modigas
Worth 5k... not to me that's for sure. I mean I get the novelty of owning an item such as this, but its not like this is a whole album or Geogaddi outtakes.
  • Unde
m8 ill trade you a dragon dagger and 500k for this record just meet me at the grand exchange
  • Tane
"one corner is just a lilllll bent, everything else is near mint" really?
  • Jieylau
I pity the fool who tries to sell this for the ludicrous amount of $5000, and even more anyone crazy enough to buy it at that price.
  • Samuhn
  rharris07You're right too, I mean it is a very very important piece of BoC history.
  • Fenrinos
Why is it wrong for them to sell something so rare and collectible for whatever price they want to set it at? If you don't like it, don't buy it. They found it fair and square - they have the right to sell it at any price they want. If it was meant for everyone to have, BoC would have pressed five thousand plus copies. If you're upset because this person has exclusive music and you don't...just go pre-order the album at Bleep and move on. To condemn someone for selling something out of jealousy seems a bit ridiculous. Is he suppose to sell it for $15 so that the next person can turn around and sell it for $5,000??
  • Unnis
I agree, the only time where this would be acceptable is where someone lost their job and needed to pay rent/mortgage, bills and feed their family.

---- -- ------- --------.
  • Corgustari
there are 6 total, each with the same code, the other codes are being found in other places
  • Buzatus
There is no concrete proof that 6 of these records are in existence. Only 2 have been found so far, there may not have been any more than this for all we know.
  • Nirad
If I had this I would never sell it.
  • Iseared
I cannot imagine the prices this will go for if any of the owners decide to sell their copy.
I get the whole 1 of 6 rarity, but $5,000 for a promotional 20 second music clip is insane. Although I don't doubt this going for less than $1,000 on ebay.
  • Dianantrius
...something along with lines of a 1 with a bunch of zeros after it.
  • Burirus
whats this
  • caster
This is one of six hints regarding BoC's new LP or song.
