Kimi Kärki really wants to sell you his misprint CDs!

Following on from our previous post, to which Lord Vicar and/or their record label have not replied, here’s a selective history of Kimi Kärki’s attempts to flog you those misprint CDs, you know, the ones where you can’t actually select a track like on 99.9% of other CDs…

We say “selective”, as we’re leaving out certain posts, and all “reviews”. We do have a few issues to pick with some of the reviews, but that’s perhaps a story for another day…

So, here’s the first tidbit, barely a week after the “all CDs are misprints but we’ve already sent them out anyway and there’s absolutely nothing to be done about it” announcement:

wish

“Wish they all got the new album” is a bit of a wishful thinking, Kimi Kärki, especially as you have never sold 7400 copies of ANYTHING you’ve made post-Reverend Bizarre. We doubt your cumulative record sales hit that number.

Also interesting to note that the post about the misprint did not show on Lord Vicar’s fans’ feed. Coincidence, or another cunning trick by a desperate has-been? We know which one our money’s on…

Two more weeks later…

break like the wind

Again, no mention of the eccentricities of “the new album on CD”. Those rags sure look cool, though. We need some to dust our office shelves with.

A month later, sales presumably still lacking in numbers, here’s another reminder of where you can get “Birth of Wine” from. You won’t be able to listen to it as a standalone track, though. A fact that’s somehow omitted from the post. Ho hum.

whine

A look on the Church Within / Doom Dealer website tells us that there’s no mention whatsoever about the CD’s one-track mind there, either, the tracklisting is still divided in individual tracks, as it should have been on the CD, BUT ISN’T, while the now ridiculous “Deliberately shorter than previous albums, the band sought to concentrate their trademark heaviness into shorter, punchier songs” promo blurb has been left anyway, possibly in a vague attempt to disguise facts… Sad, actually.

We saved the best for last:

collector's delight

Nothing to add, really. If anyone finds a missing spine in the general Turku area, please contact the blog and we’ll do our best to reunite it with its former owner.
