A message from Codeine

Almost 22 years ago, Steve walked into our practice room on Avenue A with an armful of newly received Glitterhouse FSLPs and three cigars. About 10 minutes ago I arrived outside our practice space with a sealed Numero Group box which we have just opened. Steve brought the cigars.

Their US tour begins Friday evening in Brooklyn, and as Steve has said before, the likelihood of any kind of victory lap is nil. Dates:

06/29 – Brooklyn, NY @ Bell House
06/30 – Brighton, MA @ Brighton Music Hall
07/01 – Chicago, IL @ Lincoln Hall
07/09 – Seattle, WA @ Triple Door
07/10 – Seattle, WA @ Triple Door
07/11 – Portland, OR @ Doug Fir
07/12 – San Francisco, CA @ Great American Music Hall
07/13 – Los Angeles, CA @ Echoplex
07/15 – New York, NY @ Le Poisson Rouge

Individual Codeine Albums Available Now Via Our Web Store

It’s been a productive day around here at Numero HQ as we moved more and more Codeine box sets out our door, while ruining the suspension of Mark’s (our mail-man and one-time Chicago House DJ) mail truck. Packing the van to the brim, we’ve been keeping up with our on-going effort toward reducing the agency’s unsustainable deficit by continuing to churn out ridiculously large box-set’s for your loyal eyes and ears.

In addition to that, we also received a shipment today of the individual deluxe edition’s of the group’s LPs that are loaded to the brim with bonus unreleased material, 16 page booklet and CD. They are available now via our web-store, here.

Lastly, the young-guns over here at the office have been busy purging themselves of their own personal trading card collections of yesteryear. While Zach’s basketball commons have been slowly funneling world-wide for the past few months, intern Danny “Mario” Ross came through today with two three-ring binders full of DC and Marvel Comics trading cards. Watch your current orders because you may find yourself a Dr. Doom or Night-Crawler hologram intertwined between some Numero goodness.

This morning a tractor trailer full of Codeine arrived at our office. It ‘s all hands on deck as we get out over 700 pre-ordered copies to folks across the globe.

Gandalf watches the mountain of individual pre-orders grow. This is about 1/7th of the total.

Custom Numero boxes… where have you been all our life?

Just arrived at the Numero office: the pre-order bonus. It could go down in history as the rarest Numero pressing, as we only pressed enough to cover those pre-orders sold… but we miscalculated and didn’t make enough for the Numero employees (or even co-owners). Even producers on the project will be vying for copies on eBay against the unwashed masses! We hope to stave off office mutiny long enough to ship all the products by the end of next week. Stay tuned…

Codeine boxsets still not here…

But we did get the packaging. When you get them through mailorder, they will be packaged in our extremely attractive (and recyclable) N>U>M E>R>O kraft tape. Anything to make their arrival a little more thrilling.

“No weak new songs, no holographic Doug Scharin on drums, no guest vocals by Scarlett Johansson, no synched films: just the three of us playing these shows. And, I promise, what’s on our schedule now will be the only Codeine shows until the next century.”— Stephen Immerwahr
