like,,,to the extent of going to HMV at 9am to buy it?
and it was Be Here Now.
August 21st, 1997, 9am at the WH Smith in Maldon high street. Just before I got my GCSE results. I had my priorities straight in those days.
I get excited by records still, but I don't go to HMV to buy them at 9am. I just buy them at the weekend instead.
...though, to be fair, my mum wouldn't take me on that day, so we had to go the next...no queues at all.
i've got every yeah yeah yeahs album and ep the day they came out, and for the master, machine and is is eps that meant getting a train to london on monday morning, because there is about 10 cds in the whole of slough
It really is pretty bloody good. Totally different to their other records (of course) but really great throughout.
was when tools lateralus and weezer green album came out on same morning , i have never been let down so much in my life by music as when i got home that morning :(
but I order them online and it's usualy 12"s not albums, I think I get excited about an album a few times a month. This week I was very excited about new stuff from Joker / 2000F & Jkamata, Guido, Likhan. I'm already excited about Pangaea, Kryptic Minds & Leon Switch next week. Far to much good stuff around in electronic circles at the moment, indie has really fallen off in recent times.
for 'Get Behind Me Satan'. 'X & Y' was out the same day, so it was pretty rammed in there.
buying The Thrills records & vinyls. Last time around I paid for a 7" with coppers as it was a week before payday and i was skint - but wanted it so badly.
I just can't think of a band around at the moment that would make me trek to the record store at 9am on a Monday morning.
i don't know about being stood outside HMV at 9am though.
is it really a barometer of how "excited" you are?
I get genuinely excited about many albums, but I never rush out to buy them. Is searching p2p networks as soon as you hear about an album's release the modern day lazy/poor equivalent?
The last record I was that excited about was Patrick Wolf's The Magic Position
it's not possible to be there when the shop opens ( and in Paris you don't know at what time the records will be there anyway ) so no waiting at 9.
But I'm very excited by the new Barzin ( it's out this week but I'm at 200 km of any decent record shop at the moment ) and the new Marissa Nadler !
I'm pretty excited about their next record.
I will literally not be able to get my hands on them quick enough... that said, this means I'll probably end up downloading leaks first out of sheer impatience, which is kinda the opposite of what you're asking.
for brand new anyway. summer release apparently!
I actually went to HMV at 8 oclock to buy it, thinkning they'd be open at 8 or at least half past. but they opened at 9 so I was waiting outside for an hour. :(
i'd been waiting to hear those gorgeous old out of print ep's on a format other than mp3 for years, so i bought a copy on vinyl. the day it dropped through the letterbox (actually it was left at my next door neighbour because i haven't got an enormous letterbox) my record player blew up. god hates me.
So no. I got Intimacy by Bloc Party on the day they announced the digital download and also purchased the physical copy on pre-order.
I'm really excited about Grammatics LP and am refusing to nab the leak so I've pre-ordered it, the whole gatefold package.
probably would have got it first thing, but I had to go to school. I think that's the only album I've ever anticipated getting that hasn't been out for years.
then the most ive looked forward to an album in recent years was the 2nd wolf parade album, bitterly disappointing too
who thinks it's not a patch on the first?
Its so boring when stood next to the first, kissing the beehive is a massive tune though.
it had the honour of being deleted from my iPod yesterday, stupid 4gb nano, you are too small.
Spot on re. Kissing the Beehive. That and The Grey Estates are the two picks from AMZ.
Skived off uni for the morning to buy it and couldn't get it home quick enough. Seemed like that album was quite a big event at the time. Looking back it was probably quite disappointing...
Both not as good as I wanted. And I got to Victoria station dead early to get them.
I was about 14
well exciting stuff
I've been listening to Metallica since I was about 12 so even with all the doubts about how good it may or may not have been I still rushed straight out to get ti
I'm excited about loads of albums this year but won't que up for any of them. The difference between me hearing track 4 at 9.05 on the Monday morning and actually hearing it when I am ready to hear it is pretty considerable.
..didnt go in at 9am but was at work itching to get into town and buy a copy on the day it came out.
When the bjork album and cinematic orchestra album came out on the same day I was the same.
Worship an Tribute I did get up early for though!
none of the above disappointed me in the least.
and I wasn't disappointed
I'm already excited about the new Muse album, even though it'll be months yet, there's not currently a release date for it.
The Mars Volta one is exciting me aswell.
I was travelling in Oz, in the middle of no where, but had to travel a fair while to get the album on the day of release. I don't think any album will have the effect funeral did on me for some time.
I remember when 'Design for Life' (MSP) and 'Goldfinger' (Ash) were released as singles, I met up with a friend at about 10am (it was half-term) and went to buy both.
i shat a brick when that was announced
Because Napster had folded.
- well I'm excited enough to go to Leeds 7 March to see them live and get the album from their stall (I hope, x)
out in a month or so, extremely excited. i think it helps how secretive he's been about it
Went all the way into the big bad city in the freezing rain strait after school and it didn't disappoint. Now a days i tend to steal what i want and buy it if its good. I pre-ordered MPP in mid december though, i held out for a few days after the leak came out but cracked and got it. Good job too since the mp3 code didn't activate for a week after the record came out.
I held out on downloading because of how bad I just wanted it to be right when I heard it. I had a test that day, so I immediately went after the test with a friend to the record shop, found it, bought it, and played it in the car on the way to the next record store since the first didn't have Noble Beast by Andrew Bird and nearly shit my pants. God damn fo' real.
I remember walking all the way to the shops to buy it, realising I didn't have my card or any cash, so I walked back home got my card and then walked back.
what a let down that was! crushing deflation!
But I wouldn't go to HMV @ 9. Just pre-order on amazon like.
I've got lots of albums the day they came out, but only at lunchtime or after school and stuff. The only time I've ever been in a shop the moment something has been released was for Harry Potter's 4-7, when they started opening Waterstone's at midnight and shit. I remember the day after Order of the Phoenix came out and my mum was like "You went to Waterstone's at midnight and bought the book for £13, but you could have bought it from Asda today for £7" and I was all "That's not the point mum!!!!!"
If HMV did something like that for an album's release, then I'd totally BE THERE. But only if it was Weezer or something - a band that I really love and who could possibly open HMV at midnight.
Its coming soonest, due 10 March, I believe. I'd go to HMV at 9am to get it, but they probably won't have it.
the new Camera Obscura album comes out.
Mogwai - Happy Songs for Happy People - I missed a lecture to go and buy it. That was in the height of my Mogwai obsession. I've not even bought the last one yet.
I'd say Crooked Rain Crooked Rain which came out on my 25th birthday back in 94.
As a very old man I don't get too excited about anything these days but I did buy Biffy's Infinityland on it's release in 04 and Deerhoof's Offend Maggie last year.
I would never sod about queuing up, waiting for a store to open just to be first to hear a record though. Isn't that just for people who are borderline mentally ill?
its cool when you can go to an album launch or something and actually celebrate the event with the creators. ie flying lotus braindance with all the lucky me peeps
I missed a day at uni and bought it on cassette at my local Our Price.. God I am old..
Hope of the States- "The Lost Riots" and Arcade Fire- "Neon Bible"
