I would definitely love a nice wooden box with the hexagon plaque containing 5+ lps of old tunes...

The one thing that lends to the banner promoting archival material is it being posted on Hell Interface. HI has always represented the pseudonym used when Mike and Marcus work underground, and what's more underground than the countless tapes of music we've never heard before?

The fact that it's Music Has The Right To Children era symbolism also suggests something from their past.

Also, they finally got the license to release XYZ as an archival track. Perhaps they've gotten it for other tracks too?

I re-listened to R35, and both Old Tunes today, and feel like I’m in the minority hoping we would get a new album and not remastered old work. I mean, they are cool, but honestly just sketches, of which we were never supposed to even receive.

I'm really, really on the fence with this one but I think I'd rather have another Geogaddi or MHTRTC than the BoC Set. But I'd rather have the BoC set over another Tomorrows Harvest for sure... Not saying it was bad, but man I really want some good, fun, melodic BoC. The BoC set would be nice if it included not only pre-twoism stuff but also the outtakes from Geogaddi and such. Old Tunes was just their best pre-twoism tracks compiled to send to labels if im not mistaken. Old Tunes Vol.1 and 2 are amazing and if they have lots more like that then I'm on board, but what if we've heard the best of it... I'd love to hear more Geogaddi era stuff tho, that album is something else. Either way, new BoC is new BoC and I highly doubt we'll be disappointed either way.

Fuck it!, give us both! gimme gimme.
While I don't think we'll get the old shit and I think we already have most of them, or versions of most of them, i'm more than happy to be proven wrong. I am just hungry for new stuff, current ideas.
As far as the banner, it's probably just a hello from BoC via the only YT channel they control, A new one setup would look fake, we all know the HI one is legit. The hexagon means it is BoC that is saying hello not HI.

Would seriously dig a BOC version of this. I just don't know if BOC would take their cues from the grateful dead haha I remember them calling Geogaddi psychedelic but not "hippie shite" :lol:

It would be nice know the details on the WARP contract - but I assume that’s still a private corporate document and not public information.

That said - pure speculation - but I would imagine as with all legally binding documents there would be specific language of the type of agreement, right!?

Something like this sounds most logical and (probably most traditional) ....this contract holds _____ to five (5) records of new material under WARP.

Something less logical: ....this contract holds _____ to (4) records of new material and one (1) box set.

....this contract holds _____ to (4) records of new material and one (1) rerelease.

Who the hell knows - pure speculation but trying to think logically from the WARP perspective on this one.

The best deal for WARP would be - we pay these guys - we deal with their timetable - we only ask for 5 albums of new music.

Thoughts!?

Nah, fuck that lazer engraved bolsa wood vibe. It does not give off the right vibe. It looks too trinket box for a shabby chic ebay shop.

Still would take a bocset in any box as long as it's not covered in shit haha

Either that or a crate so it would look like rations for our own Tomorrow's Harvest style bunkers :wink:

If BoC released anything like that, it would be a stylish, thought out, well made set. Something you could put on your shelf and people will ask you about it because it's that cool kinda thing. They know what the fans want, not some bullshit cigar box.

I understand where you're coming from, but you do phrase it very abrasively.

Personally, I just want a simple cozy engraved box that won't distract me while I listen to music I've wanted to hear for so many years. The music to me is the main thing and it always will be. :D

Yeah for sure, I guess I was a little harsh... Like, in concept, it's the same thing but I think the words "shabby chic" to describe that other LP set were pretty accurate.

Did not mean to sound like an asshole, lol.

Oh no problem at all, my friend. I get where you're coming from. It was literally the first example I thought of when Bungler started talking about a "wooden box set" so I posted it without thinking much into it. It's for a band legendary for both its shabbiness and drug use (hence the cigar box) so it fits a lot better for them than BOC.

I agree fully that if BOC went for the same rural, wooden box approach it would be far classier because their art always matches the music perfectly. But at the end of the day, music will always come first for me.

Also to end it on a good note here is an interesting quote from MDG when the bocset was first mentioned:

The tracks are out there now, nothing can be done about that, they've been circulating for a while and fans have them, so the decision was taken to at least consider tidying them up and repackaging them with decent exclusive artwork & more rarities


Note the mention of exclusive artwork. I'd be so stoked if the BOC version of the plaque was a tease for the art direction they're using. I like that concept. It's very pagan, like Soul Slip said :D
