Q: Are you Nirvana fans or is this a business with a diverse catalog?
A: Business only, (we have a) catalog of around 50 items at any given time, although over the last few years we've done over 200 different items.
Q: Do you keep track of how many records have been made? If so, how many are there of each?
A: No, in general we press 1000 and then if demand requires more (we make more) in lots of 500.
Q: Are the mispressed copies of the picture discs intentional, how many are
there, and was the problem corrected? (By this I mean misprinted tracklists, like Bleach titles on an Unplugged LP or Nevermind LPs with Rolling Stones songs.)
A: Mispressings are not intentional. They are corrected as soon as they are picked up, but often they have finished the run and were not repressed. (Note from D.J.: By 'finished the run' they mean that the misspressed ones had been done and sold already, and by the time they where ready to re-press with the corrections, the print run on that title was over -- i.e. no longer in demand. I would imagine many misspressed items did not get a correction run, because they only ever recieved one pressing.)
Q: Why isn't there an Incesticide picture disc (to complete the Nirvana series)?
A: No demand. We only have a fairly small capacity and only press what we can sell as straight away.
Q: Was Mexico at any time a source of the picture discs or was that a myth? (I'm referring to the Spanish credits on each item.)
A: The Spanish is because there are a lot of items that come out of Mexico and the U.K. boot police can't tell one from another.
Q: Why were Tupelo releases targeted? Why not make copies of other rare/hard to find items (e.g. the Love Buzz single)?
A: Tupelo were not targeted, it's just that they were good sellers at the time. We are not too interested in faking official rare stuff and we only have capacity to produce LPs...not singles. It could be done, but would cost too much to set up for little reward.
Q: All that's missing are copies of Tupelo's Sliver single -- is that next or planned?
A: We don't do singles.
Q: Are there plans to expand the catalog beyond Tupelo releases?
A: No, Nirvana are about dead now.
