Seems like he covered it on one of his own releases and now the automatic copyright claim system has pinned it as his. Since there was never an official stream available for Buckie High before it probably just assumes it's his song. I kinda doubt he intended for that to happen, just YouTube's auto claims being shit again
getin busty "Shit Head"

That's what I assumed happened when I saw there was an actual album for sale from this guy.

I figure if he's not part of the collective in some capacity (and I'm going out on a limb here and call it: he isn't) this could be a shitty way to monetize someone else's work.

Intentional or not, mind you - it's still shitty it could happen so easily.
There are a lot of different 'me's, you know. There's the mad me, when I get angry.

The response concerning that WxAxRxP Bleep Store that's been up. I asked if there would be any future goods available on it and what it's purpose was for. I got a cryptic response but definitely one that indicates there will be something coming up in the future.

Aw thanks :D I also asked a follow up question and was informed that the current site is just a placeholder for another site and "there is more to come and will be announced soon."

Once again, this could have to do with BOC or it could not. But regardless, it's official that Warp has something else planned and the 30th anniversary celebration is not over. Let's hope our boys choose to partake in it, and this time, they bring some homemade goodies. Hexagon shaped cookies anyone? :P

Oh man, this is getting juicy.

I'd be interested in buying a few of the things that aired on the Warp30 weekend, so I'm still holding out for a store of some sort.

Even more new content would be great though!

I'm happy I could share this with you guys! Remember they did say to keep our eyes open for the WxAxRxP mark throughout the rest of 2019 so I knew they weren't done yet. This is just more confirmation.

I hope there's a shop selling stuff too. I'll definitely pick up anything Bibio did at Warp 30. I didn't even listen to his unreleased stuff yet, but he's been an addiction lately.

Hey, cool! Pretty sweet that you got a response! :D

When did the Warp site get its current design? I don't remember it looking like this https://warp.net/

And the Tomorrow's Harvest track list is FINALLY fixed: https://warp.net/releases/120548-boards-of-canada-tomorrows-harvest

What was wrong with the TH track list?

I'm going to grasp a few straws and say maybe they're cleaning it up because they know people will be looking around it soon :P

Hehe, let's hope that's the reason! xD

For quite awhile the TH track list had Gemini missing from the beginning and placed at the end instead; and a random song from MHTRTC was stuck in at the end as well - Telephasic Workshop I believe. Twas a bit of a mystery.

The reason that is suspicious is because BoC are one of Warp's biggest cash cows. BoC are one of few in Warp's roster who has a lot of fans outside the genre of electronic/IDM music

You'd think their label would take better care of their page with that much notoriety. But honestly, my theory is that this was an error but Warp left it up because they knew it would fuck with us.

I swear that either Mike and Marcus, or Warp themselves have had a good laugh by creating some kind of suspicious error like this one. I'd totally do it myself if I was in their position.

That said, now the fun and games are over and they have to make their pages look all pretty for what's coming next in the Warp 30 celebration.

Almost definitely this is what happened, and they just rolled with it lol. :lol:

Well the site definitely looks pretty! I'm so ready for new tunes... Bring it on!

The weird thing is, it almost makes sense in a way - like after an apocalypse what would any survivors want to do? re-establish lines of communication, hopefully.

The obvious theme of TH is apocalyptic. 'Telephasic' is not a real word, it's an example of a portmanteau invented by BoC. We can however break down the word into it's two root parts - tele, which comes from latin meaning 'distant' and phase, which has roots in greek 'to show' or 'appearance'. So telephasic could possibly be understood as "to show across a distance" or possibly "to communicate across a medium"

Funny that it's the song that would be involved in a typo or error.

You might be onto something there. And it's definitely not the furthest reach I've seen over the last 6 years. It could very much imply "there is some kind of communication/appearance in the distance."

I just think the biggest thing that lends to that theory is why the hell would Warp be cool with having the page of one of their biggest bands look so unprofessional. Someone who's not particular Boards savy might actually believe Telephasic Workshop is on Harvest if they only saw that. It's such basic marketing/site design.

IIRC, the correct time for Geogaddi is 66:06 and they have it wrong on the website. I found that odd.

I had this strange thought this morning while driving to work- it's probably not worth writing out but I'll do it anyways for the fun of it. I was listening to Societas X (for the 50th or so time lol) and got to the "Thank you for not smoking" track and it sort of reminded me a bit of some post-apocalyptic scene. Then you start to transition into to the next track that we all know and love: "Just an Illusion (Aquarius mix)". The way that song blossoms ever so upbeat is unlike anything I've ever heard. Pretend for a moment that the track before symbolizes a bit of Tomorrow's Harvest. I like to think that the next track is going to be like the next album; something of an upbeat/triumphant mix. Like you've gone through hell, you keep going, and finally get to bliss.

I like the sound of that! What would make me happy is for the album to be like what you described above, but with some darkness and sadness creeping in towards the end. Sort of like the turn taken in the last few tracks of "Campfire."

I would love to hear a new album of super mathematic psychedelic experimental tape tracks much like basefree, or even like some of the more psychedelic techno they played on Societas X Tape, something weird lol
