Limited Edition Vinyl Recordings & Handmade Musical Artifacts from Tucson, AZ

Foxx Bodies - ST Double 2x10" PIAPTK - 216

This item isn't currently available.

These were made as part of the Made-To-Preorder series. We always make an extra ten to have on hand for stragglers, but once they are gone, these are gone for good!

Foxx Bodies are a Tucson Riot Grrl/Boyy band. They rule and are taking Tucson and the West Coast of the US of A by storm. They are coming to a town near you very soon, and if you like angry womyn and dudes with facial hair/facial glasses playing surf influenced garage punk, you would be foolish to miss them. But just as a primer, pick up their ST Debut album on Double 10” in gatefold chipboard sleeves with tip-on style full color foldover.

Tucson Area folks, free pickup is available at Wooden Tooth Records

In the interest of transparency, and so that you don’t think I’m a price gouger, when in reality I’m basically breaking even at best, I want to lay totally bare the actual expenses associated with each double 10” set.

Raw plastic - $2/disc (x2)
CNC Routing $2/disc (x2)
Labels plus printing - $1/set
Chipboard gatefold sleeve $1 (and I got a killer deal on them)
Vintage paper inner sleeves and outer plastic sleeve $.70 a set
11x17” Sticky Paper plus full color print - $2
Cutting Time – Paying James $10/hr to cut them $3.50/set
Total Cost of making each Set that I SELL= $16.20
However, I always give the artist 33% Free copies, so you have to add 33% onto the cost of each one I sell = $21.55.
Then, you have about a 20% reject/fuckup rate, which wastes materials and time and money, and brings the total NET COST of each record that I sell to $25.86. This does not account for the time that I spend going to Office Max to make prints, assembling jackets, packing sets, or the tens of thousands of dollars and hours I’ve spent accumulating gear, learning/teaching people how to cut records using an experimental process out of weird alternative materials.

I don’t write this to guilt trip you into buying it (I don’t actually make any money on them, and you can’t make that up in volume), and I know that these releases aren’t for everyone. But I occasionally get an email from someone accusing me of price gouging and charging too much (amongst other interesting accusations). They are comparing my labor intensive handmade product with a mass produced item, which is something I’ve always tried to educate my buyers about. These are handmade musical art pieces! Not mass produced products.
