Some light digging has uncovered that this new Hi Scores has a new CAT number and artwork!!!
This is the first BoC-related CAT# in a decade! A simple reissue from Warp? Possibly, but something inside me doubts this. For now, it's only available as a digital download. But I suspect an immediate vinyl repressing, prior to any announcement would make too big of a splash, too soon.
A new CAT number at the very least guarantees we'll get an announcement from Warp sometime soon. Whether all that's in that announcement is Hi Scores, I don't know. Even then, that's still huge news, in my opinion. No offense to Skam, but having a singular BoC release on a different label was odd, lol. Warp finally having the last piece of the entire BoCatalogue could quite easily lead to... other older BoC releases coming to Warp.
My assumption (read: hope) is this is the first of a big campaign...
If we're still onboard for a BoCset, what better way to celebrate all their unheard material finally being released than making their entire discography available from the same place
What's odd is that it's a WARP#, not a WAP#... Makes me wonder if Hi Scores isn't the only music under that particular CAT#... Perhaps there's.... other items alongside it... perhaps inside of some... sort of.... box...
Lastly, 367 is pretty far above the rest of the albums coming out this year. Most of them are sitting in the 350s, which also makes me also wonder if there's several other items all in a row that were filled all at once.
You know, I hate to read into this too far...but this is the general speculation thread, but aren't those girls...or at least one of them featured on Old Tunes too. That makes this cover choice equally interesting and nostalgic
