PostSubject: SoS information   Tue Apr 19, 2011 5:38 pm

Hi there,

Recently got a SoS vinyl that I'm framing. Want to include a bit of information with it. All I have is release date at the minute, but can ayone suggest more? Things like if it went platinum when, short (1-2 line) reviews etc., or anything you could suggest

Thanks

well maybe you might want to include some info about the particular pressing of the record.

I have a framed copy also, when I get home I will try to remember to post a picture of it...

for me I kept it pretty simple, I have the album cover on one side and the record on the other... I used red and black matting and a silver frame that has black and red speckled in it. It looks amazing.

When I got it framed I had to have them redo it 3 times! Framing is surprisingly expensive so do not accept any defects in it.

Might be cool to just keep it simple and just do a short meaningful lyric like

"Atlantis is My Only Dream Tonight"
"Dance In My Moonlight, My Old Friend The Twilight"
"We Are The Last of The Jukebox Romeos"
"I Don't Drive Nowhere Without The Radio On"
"We Swore The World Couldn't Break Us, Even When The World Took Us Down"
and of course the classic
"It's Alright, Man. I'm Only Bleeding, Man. Stay Hungry, Stay Free, and Do The Best You Can."

but then again lyric preference is subjective so you might be more keen on selecting a different one

As for reviews maybe an excerpt from the punknews article such as...


"the type of record that most young bands wish they could create to launch their musical career."

"This is one of those incredible albums that leaves you wanting more"

"With constant touring, fueled by one of the best live shows I've witnessed in some time, it's safe to say that you will be hearing a lot more about this band in the future"

though that last one could be broken up perhaps...anyway here's the review link

I've got the yellow vinyl. Still arguing with myself about the colour. What do you reckon about the frame and backing colour?

Yellow is a tough one since it does not blend well with the SOS art work...

Haha, should have chosen a better one, but was all I could get on a reasonable budget

Thinking postbox red backing with a black frame...

Obviously I kept mine real simple, I think if you add anything to it you are just going to clutter the space... save the money on getting something engraved and spend the extra money on getting the best frame you can...

I spent hours picking out the right mats, you can't tell from the low quality picture but the red and black mats really match the the red and black of the record, then I used a silver-ish frame that up close has flecks of red and black in it too. The glass I got is also top of the line, UV protection, and exceptionally clear.

Also, framing is much more expensive then I thought... 300+ for this one. I can't wait to see how your record comes out!

e7c - looks awesome! May have to wait a while for mine in that case. Start my new job in August so will save up the pennies. Need to be totally impulsive and blow my cash on something flashy as well (eyes on a new laptop and a guitar) as well as framing 2* El Jefe prints that I have
