Big box sets

Author: Colin | Published: 12/6/10

Flavorpill’s Earplug is a regular e-newsletter focusing on a variety of music news which link through to their website. One particular article caught my attention recently which I thought would be good to mention here on Hard Format: ‘Smashing Pumpkins’ Teargarden and 10 Other Over-the-Top Special Editions’.

There’s the venerable – Pixies’s Minotaur – and the ludicrous – the special edition of Hole’s Nobody’s Daughter which includes “the CD; a digital download; a bright blue, Miss America-style Nobody’s Daughter sash; signed LP; “cassette USB w/album and unreleased photo collection”; messenger bag; thermal shirt; and makeup.” And then there’s Rammstein’s Liebe Ist Für Alle Da…

Here’s what Flavorpill have to say about this set:

It includes the album itself, five bonus songs the band admits isn’t as good as what did make the final tracklist, a hard metal case, handcuffs, lube, and (get ready for it) six pink dildos modeled after the, uh, band members themselves. How’s that for a pleasurable listening experience?

An amusing detail is the way that Amazon displays the box:

Now that I’ve set eyes on this visual feast, I’m wondering whether there’s any point in continuing with Hard Format?

  1. You ought to mention that “Liebe is fuer alle da” means “Love is here for everybody”

How’s that for a pleasurable listening experience? Kinda NSFW. (hardformat) […]

  4. […] The new Rammstein boxset includes dildos molded after the band members’ penises. […]

  36. First off I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick
    question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.

    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head
    prior to writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing
    my mind in getting my thoughts out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to
    begin. Any recommendations or tips? Appreciate it!
