Petition: Release Disco Inferno’s The 5 EPs on Vinyl

Disco Inferno - The 5 EPs

Disco Inferno - The 5 EPs

You may remember that, last October, this here blog enthusiastically trumpeted the official CD release of Disco Inferno’s The 5 EPs compilation. Since that time, a vinyl edition of said compilation has not been forthcoming. In an attempt to redress this monstrous injustice, Bubblegum Cage III has partnered with The UK Post-Rock Group to launch an online petition, which you are strongly urged to sign.

Apparently, the official line is that One Little Indian will only release The 5 EPs on vinyl once a satisfactory number of CDs have been sold. Therefore, you are also strongly urged to fork out for a CD copy of the compilation, if you haven’t already bought one. In fact, buy a bunch of copies and give them to friends. Then tell those friends to go sign the petition.

This is THE MOST IMPORTANT REISSUE IN THE HISTORY OF RECORDED MUSIC and it deserves a full, proper VINYL edition. Please.

Sign the petition today!

    You have succeeded!
    OLI are currently preparing the album´s release on a 3 disc set due to the logistics of fitting the tracks onto 4 sides without loss of volume it looks like it has to be on 3 discs.
    Side A will be the first single; B will be the 2nd single; C will be the first side of The Last Dance; D the second side; E will be the 2nd Language EP and F will be It´s a Kid´s World.
    I haven´t been told if they have OKed the 3 record idea but I was told the cutting engineer made the same track splits as I did so I guess it has been accepted. OLI will know.
    No idea when it is due to be released but at least you don´t need to petition now!
    You shall have your vinyl…..
    And by the way you did me a favour pointing me in the direction of Fennesz – truly remarkable guitarist. Thanks.

    Awesome news!

    However, I would urge caution, at least until there’s an official announcement about this.

    In other words, don’t get complacent – KEEP SIGNING THE PETITION!

    It´s not going to be on 3 LPs but 2 LPs and the test pressing has been made.
    So it will be on 2 LPs in the near future.
