The etching says to me that the 4th side is recording free - ie that the album itself only takes up three sides.

Interesting too that the vinyl label shown here seems to to imitate the look of a concrete block in terms of colour and texture. As others have mentioned it seems pretty obvious there could be a gold coloured vinyl release involved somehow and this just adds to that likelihood (gold vinyl plus concrete label).

As for the etching the store mentions it but doesn't make any huge deal out of it. If it was super special or meaningful I would have thought they would have made a bigger deal out of it maybe. My guess is Merchbar are just being a bit smart and while mentioning it they add that they cant specifically say what it is - which is obvious because that would ruin it. It's most likely a band image - in which case my guess would be its highly likely one of them in the aged makeup.

Only other possibility I was thinking is that they could have gone mad and made the fourth side gold in some way with the etching.

I'm pretty certain at the moment that (almost) all the UK stock IS the US stock reshipped through to the UK. They may even wait for enough orders to to actually then make it and ship it (hard to say).

I think if you see the same item on the US store then the UK store is selling the same US item. There are way less UK items too (than there used to be) and almost none unique to the UK store. Not sure if that's permanent.

The Frome posters took friggin ages to go out to - and they definitely should have been in the UK already. I emailed them on those and they said the same thing - still waiting on the stock.

So what you can say for certain is that the UK store will take your money and sell you items, even if it doesn't yet actually have the stock, AND the stock may not even be a presale (ie looks like it should be right there with them the day you buy it - but actually it might not be ).

On the other hand I paid not very much for NZ shipping from the UK store and it was send in a massively bulletproof tube with signed tracked recorded shipping that was probably well more than I paid in postage. And the US store has been very good in answering queries and shipping stuff. So it could just be kinks as they iron things out on the UK side.

I'm just seeing your thinking on why you mentioned the etching being a clue - it made no sense as I posted elsewhere when youd hold the record and it it would be in the liner notes... only if it's NOT in the liner notes then yeah they could still be holding everyone to ransom on who the hell it was even AFTER it's released lol

Foo Fighters were recently interviewed on ET Canada, and Dave Grohl told a hilarious story about Pat Smear never having heard of Adele when Grohl proposed the idea of working with her producer Greg Kurstin.

“Pat has said, ‘What has he done?’”

“‘He did that Adele stuff.’”

“Pat was like, ‘Well what does she sound like?’”

Smear later said during the interview, “Where am I going to hear that?”

Question... those who have used the Foo UK store since it was changed to LN merch.... have you actually received anything from them yet? wondering how long it will take them to dispatch things supposedly in stock.

ok

I have had a bit of a snarky dig at them saying I may as well order from the US store considering how long people are waiting for stuff (including myself), even if there are 'exclusive' things.
