Ships late February, 2018
UPDATE: Test pressings are approved and will be among the finest-sounding editions of this release. The sound is full, dynamic, and crisp – in fact, the best test pressings we’ve ever received in 20 years of releasing vinyl! Two fine Flightless warehouse dudes (Nate and Ben) heard it last week and were suitably IMPRESSED.
Two limited edition colour variants – 500 copies each, 150-160 gram vinyl housed in a deluxe gatefold sleeve:
INVERTEBRATE INEVITABILITY + TECTONIC COLLISION
NOTE: this is a PREORDER – shipping late FEBRUARY – due to circumstances beyond our control, we are receiving this release 3 weeks later than originally expected. You will receive notification when ready to be picked up or that Polygondwanaland has shipped.
** Once the preorder ends (when final shipping instructions must be provided to the pressing plant) any remaining stock (and currently almost 2/3 sold!) will be available for Australian residents only and retail in selected Australian stores for approx $40. Interested buyers outside of Australia will have to pay about TWICE the current shipping costs so yeah, Homeless suggests you take advantage of the preorder benefits now **
NOTE: this is not a Homeless release!
Newly-minted STRANGEWORLD RECORDS is utilising the functionality of the Homeless website – shipping for U.S or EURO orders is only AUD $11 for one LP (ships from New York and Paris respectively) or AUD $12-13 for multiple records. Add other limited Homeless releases such as AMYL AND THE SNIFFERS or the Carpenter / Goblin-inspired sounds of THE NIGHT TERRORS and save on shipping.
Ordering issues? These are covered in the Homeless FAQ.
“Visitors to Strangeworld in Fitzroy, Melbourne often comment they’ve heard on the ‘vine that we’re THE place to hit in Melbourne when looking for Gizz rarities or colour variants. With over 20 years vinyl-pressing and label experience (including 28 releases for Homeless the past 5 & 1/2 years) we thought it would be cool to present an Australian pressing of KING GIZZARD’s revolutionary idea of allowing fans and labels to create their own edition of ‘Polygondwanaland’. Strangeworld plans to give back to the King Gizzard guys (see below) whilst also presenting a high-quality, European-pressed edition to Australian fans and cheap shipping for collector or completist types located outside Australia, via our fulfilment partners based in Paris and New York.” – Richie @ Strangeworld
The two pressings offered here – in an edition of 500 copies each, pressed in the Czech Republic for guaranteed quality – represent the Strangeworld logo variations we currently utilise.
An example of a past variant we created, as modelled by Miles Brown (you should check out his freakish talent) of The Night Terrors (two superb releases available here):
Mock ups of the colour variants have been provided, the test pressing (Czech Republic) is the best we’ve heard in 20 years of pressing records and our fulfilment (i.e. shipping) partners in New York and Paris are prepared for a February packing onslaught.
In return, Strangeworld Records – the store – will provide the King Gizzard lads with the following:
– $1500 gift voucher (or separate Gift Vouchers for each member, totalling $1500) to spend in Strangeworld
– Band member copies of each variant
Free PICKUP available from Strangeworld Records, 11 John Street, Fitzroy, Melbourne, Australia.
