DROP #1: *KING OF SNAKE LIMITED DROP*
 
Looks like some signed vinyl & tshirts available next month to celebrate the 25 year anniversary of King of Snake

https://store.underworldlive.com/col...p+Announcement


--------------

DROP #1 "King of Snake": Marks the 21st anniversary of the legendary King of Snake and is the first in a series of limited ‘drops’ celebrating moments in the world of Underworld.

Alongside new and exclusive King of Snake tees, hoodies and print, a very limited quantity of vinyl 12" promos and commercial formats from the original release are available on a first-come-first-serve basis...


Steady as a metronome, like feet gliding over Shibuya Crossing at rush hour the King of Snake moves. But who - or what - was he?

Was the supreme serpent a video gamer, lightning fast fingers on a Nokia keypad, champion over all others? Or was he the undisputed ruler of the underworld, the doyen of illegal late-night animal activity, stood victorious and grabbing fistfuls of cash as another pretender to the throne falls?

The truth is now lost in time and twenty-one years of myth making. All that remains is that metronomic beat, that relentless rippling synth line and the frantically recalled legend of twenty-four hours with the King of Snake. As the story goes: It’s very dangerous… it’s very popular… fighting snake…

All products are super limited and sell out quickly. Products in this collection will be available for 5 days. 24th September - 29th September 2020.

This collection will ship the week of 19th October 2020.

Ha, holy shit, did they seriously just clean out their closet and sell out all their extra promo stock?

Looking at the backgrounds of those photos. I see:

Boxes of:
Jumbo CD1
King of Snake CD1
Cowgirl CD2
TMO CD1
Bruce Lee radio promo CD
1992-2002
Bird 1 cardsleeve promo CD
yellow Rez 12"
Long Slow Slippy 12"

Drawers, shelves, filing boxes full of stuff

A box tantalizingly labeled Electraglide 2005 something something something

In one photo, you can clearly see rows of CD's with version numbers on them, the kind Rick uses to track revisions, like A2074. One row is taped up and says "Jumbo" on it.

I'd be all over some CDs. I picked up a vinyl in that absolute flash sale there. Before I knew what was happening things were selling out, so I grabbed one. Need a turntable now!

I agree @thebang, there's shelves with all sorts on there.

I'd love to have some stuff not on the streaming services, or that is kind of a pain to get via anywhere other than Discogs.

The designs are quite boring though.

No problem! I am not in the UK and hoped I wasn't be blocked from buying things internationally for a moment.

Picked up Promo1. Will be something different in the collection, for sure.

Excited to see what else drops.

Luckily had all that vinyl stuff (not signed), except for a rare promo single, and the italian one. So i'm good.

Now if they start putting up acetates, test pressings, and other things, well then...

The only thing that jumps at me, is a hat, with something labelled GRITS under it.

Sure, but for people like me... I am interested in it all! I have almost nothing in my "collection" and this is brilliant :)

Agh... the email hit my here at 5:00am, I was sound asleep. By the time I woke, all the music was gone. Hoping I'll get a chance on some of the other drops. :(

Anything you might be interested in? ridiculous question, I know, but, am happy to help if I can.

Is that Footwear Repairs on the right shelf (just below the KoS 12"s)? ;)

Yes, nice spot!

I also see a CD labeled Private and I think it says Perou 2 on it.

Thanks. It was the URL auto-parser, not me!

If you look at that Wikipedia article, the author is described as a “Welsh Irvine Welsh,” which I imagine tickles Rick’s fancy.

Where are people seeing the images of the stuff in the dreamers? Got myself a KOS t shirt.

TheBang 09-25-2020 03:42 PM

Re: DROP #1: *KING OF SNAKE LIMITED DROP*
 
What does dreamers mean? Is that an autocorrect? If you’re asking about the inventory stuff in storage we were talking about, if you look at the vinyl products in the drop page, they each have 2 photos. In the 2nd photo of each, you can see lots of items in this storage area in the background periphery.

I wonder why people are having a hard time seeing the photos.
Did they remove something. They look fine to me.

Sorry - didnt read Todd's last post before posting - and if you see that the stuff is sold out already you're less likely to click on it and then see the tiny thumbnail for the 2nd picture.

Arrived this morning.
Can someone recommend a turntable? lol

Re: DROP #1: *KING OF SNAKE LIMITED DROP*
 
awesome! I've recently spun my unsigned copy of that single on a cheapo turntable with an internal speaker...not a recommendation! Sadly, most of my vinyl was purchased 20+ yrs ago when I still lived at home and had access to my father's rocking system. Who would have thought that CDs would be supplanted! :P

Enjoy that bungalow mix so much! Right up there with barking mix.

Nuxx79 10-22-2020 05:32 AM

Re: DROP #1: *KING OF SNAKE LIMITED DROP*
 
Fortunately, I have a pretty good sound system; just need a decent turntable! Looking forward to it :)

Re: DROP #1: *KING OF SNAKE LIMITED DROP*
 
Well, thats SO HUGELY disappointing. Despite ordering my signed vinyl just before the drop was announced (I happened to be browsing the store that morning!), it seems my vinyl AND T-Shirt have just been refunded and I won't be getting them. No explanation either. Now wondering if the Rez order I just placed will ever see the light of day. Rant over.

TheBang 11-24-2020 05:36 AM

Re: DROP #1: *KING OF SNAKE LIMITED DROP*
 
Maybe it was a delivery error? They sent them a month ago, so that's long enough that it might have gone your way, and then been sent back. You could try e-mailing them (news@underworldlive.com) and see if they can track down the order and what went wrong with it.

whatmakesustick 11-24-2020 09:18 AM

Re: DROP #1: *KING OF SNAKE LIMITED DROP*
 
Yeah maybe, I'll try, I also got the lithograph which has not been cancelled. I got an email a few weeks ago saying there was a delay but it did not say which part of the order. I guess the lithograph was delayed which has caused a problem. I should not have been greedy and just ordered the vinyl!

Got my 24hrs KOS shirt and its great quality.
