Yesterday was Thursday 29.11.2018. The Diceman LP is scheduled to be shipped tomorrow 1st Dec. Yesterday the shipment of 45′s KOTB0011 arrived. I was at work at the time and they dropped the records off with my neighbour. After returning from work after 10 pm I picked up the records and took them home. Everything to this point is running to plan. Today Friday 30 me and some friends would be packing this to ship out. Playing the record to hear how it sounds was a total shock. Its not my music.
Somebody at the plant has made an almighty fuck up and used the wrong stamper. The stamper number engraved is different. I work in manufacturing in auto motive industry we set up machines daily and go through the process that everything is checked before starting. It looks like in this case someone has not done their job and now left me in terrible position. For the first time ever I have broken even before the record is actually released. I spent over a year and half dedicated working on this record. This now going wrong can potentially finish this label. Money was borrowed on this project.
i have since been in touch with the brokers and today they will follow up on what’s gone wrong and will resolve this. With the machines they are using this can be corrected in a days production 1 day vinyl cooling. and express shipping. Labels need to be printed. This has been on my mind all night ive never known the wrong record to be pressed. the boxes are clearly marked up kotb 0011. I can not apologise enough to all those that have supported this project including distributors in Europe and Japan who I’ve dropped in the shit.
I hope this will not cause too much problems and that you the customers can bare with me as I try to sort this out.
