Big box sets

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?
