Title: Last day for priority pre-order
Post by: Neil on April 14, 2004, 12:29:12 pm
To avoid disapointment i would just like to stress that today is the last day for priority pre-order at www.mbdrecords.com

Priority pre-order means that anyone who has ordered the CD before the 15th April guarentees shipment with the first post that leaves MbD.

Ofcourse we will try to send out all order recieved upto the day we get stock, but only upto the 15th can we guarentee it.

Thanks,
Neil

NOOOOO! not mushrooms! I hate mushrooms!

I will sue if I get a mushroom through the post. Especially if the postlady can't get it through the door and has to knock.

I give this thread a big WTF.

I haven't preordered it yet (good english?). But I am planning to do it towards the end of the month, don't know why.
Title: Re:Last day for priority pre-order
Post by: Scythe on April 15, 2004, 10:06:41 am
It's a shame, I couldn't get around to ordering before now, looks like I'll have to wait like the rest of the late-pre-orders....as much sense as that makes...
Title: Re:Last day for priority pre-order
Post by: Gordon on April 15, 2004, 12:44:14 pm
Heeey! Don't use the 15:th as an excuse not to order the best record ever!  ;)

Hmmm, I sense a subliminal message somewhere...

Order now... Order now... Order now... Order now...
Title: Re:Last day for priority pre-order
Post by: robert on April 15, 2004, 12:49:08 pm
Just because your order isn't on the first sendout, it doesn't mean it won't be on the second sendout (which I'm guessing should be pretty close to the first one... )

So no real loss, guys... :)

Remember that there's still a (£1) reason to place an order before May 1st.

Well its the 15th today and I just got my order in so fingers crossed i'll get it with the first despatch.

Do you have ANY idea how long it took me to figure out what all of that translated to in USD? I'm sitting in florida with a great big 'wtf' posted on my forehead trying to order the CD =P

I think i finally got it right though and got mah cd orderd, woohoo! I'm a little late on the 15th thing, but at least I got the preorder in. Can't wait. At least I still have all my old MaSu songs sitting on my hard drive to listen to over and over and over again until then :)

Will the CD be in stores in Canada? Or will I have to order it? I usually tend to buy CDs strait from the store just cause its more convenient to be able to listen to it on the way home :D I'll definately order it though if its not.
Title: Re:Last day for priority pre-order
Post by: SomethingApt on April 18, 2004, 06:12:28 pm
i'm almost certain you have to order it through the site.
Title: Re:Last day for priority pre-order
Post by: Smeagol on April 18, 2004, 08:30:40 pm
what about AFTER it's released? does it go into any stores then??
Title: Re:Last day for priority pre-order
Post by: Neil on April 20, 2004, 11:01:21 pm
There are no magic wands here, getting this CD into the stores requires more than just a click of the fingers.

We are attempting to get the CD into the stores but this does not mean we will succeed... Afterall if it was that easy then everyone would be doing it.

Basically we have to convince distributors, labels, shops that this is the best thing they should do and they'd be mad not to stock the CD. We have to really convince them they cannot afford to miss this. As you can tell this is no easy task, but something we are tackling.

People power is great, bug your store about obtaining the CD in the shop, tell them to contact MbD.

here's an idea......

If anyone manages to get us a lead which results in a shop selling the cd we'll send you every CD we have in stock at MbD.

HMV will sell Machinae CDs, just give them a call (hmv.com?). They sell enough crap, they may as well sell Machinae. They also overprice their CDs but thats alright.
Title: Re:Last day for priority pre-order
Post by: Laser.T on April 20, 2004, 11:58:33 pm
I dunno - HMV's been doing quite well in prices recently. As long as it's not a mainstream band: (E.g. I got blink182 and Rasmus). But if you want NIN then expect to pay at least £17 ($25? or $12? -which ever way the conversion goes))
Title: Re:Last day for priority pre-order
Post by: Poisoned on April 21, 2004, 12:00:34 am
$25, but they do some dumb things, like charge 20$ for a cd, but $10 somewhere else in te store
Title: Re:Last day for priority pre-order
Post by: Smeagol on April 21, 2004, 09:10:45 pm
the rasmus? eh too light for me...need the heavy songs (Dimmu Borgir, In Flames Metallica etc etc)
Title: Re:Last day for priority pre-order
Post by: Laser.T on April 21, 2004, 09:39:54 pm
The Rasmus is really good as background music.

Not like Machinae - there music is right in the face and I like it like that

If anyone manages to get us a lead which results in a shop selling the cd we'll send you every CD we have in stock at MbD.

 I tried asking Ginza (http://www.ginza.se) what it would take to get Machinae Supremacy in stock.

"Vi tar bara in artiklar som vi anser säljbara och/eller har en efterfrågan på och vi måste också kunna köpa in dem genom någon av våra befintliga leverantörer, då vi annars får tusentals inköpsställen."

Translated:

"We only stock articles we feel are sellable and/or feel a demand for and we must be able to buy it from one of our existing suppliers, or we'd get thousands of places of purchase."

I, of course, don't know which suppliers those would be, but I guess demand would be up to the fans. If you're from Sweden (or maybe one of the nordic countries) and would like to be able to order from Ginza, send them an email at kundservice@ginza.se and inquire about Machinae Supremacy. That would show demand.

Just don't do it unless you actually would order from them. I guess the problem here is that the people here reading this is people that's already pre-ordered...

Crap you had my hopes up. I would of went down to my local(not really locl) HMV store and start to bug them about it.

Ejoj:

You've hit the nail on the head there... While people think its just a simple matter of speaking with a shop the reality is totally different. You may get a small chain interested but the larger chains will not deal with individual publishers such as myself. We have to speak with a Distributor and convince them to convince the shops to stock the CD's. It really is very difficult, long and at times annoying.

Thats how it all works... Band -> Label -> Distributor -> Shop. Ofcourse the permitations from the label part goes off in all directions. (believe me it's be so much easier for me if i was a Distributor rather than a label, but hey what the heck ;)

Even if we do convince a distributor to work for us it will still take time for the CD to wangle it's way into the shops.. It really is a long, painful journey.

Thats why i'm offering free CD's if a lead makes this happen

Toronto is a great place to distribute unmainstream bands. Next time i'm up there and not very busy i'll pop into a few of the CD stores and spread the word. If they are anything like Ginza I may not be able to get the word through but there are some places in Toronto that buy everything.

i could try spreading the word round Hemel Hempstead but i'd most likely have been in a couple of fights before i got to the shops what with the townie scum problem round here
