UPDATE 9/26/11 – Fans have reported receiving “pristine colored replacement” copies of Clouds Taste Metallic in the mail.
UPDATE 9/16/11 – Clouds Taste Metallic has been re-pressed and will be sent out to all those that had a problem. In an e-mail today customers were alerted: “Thank you for ordering The Flaming Lips, “Heady Nuggs” boxset. We appreciated how patient you have been with resolving the issues that have arose.
Please be advised that we have pressed a very limited run of replacement vinyl of “Clouds Taste Metallic” for the few of you that have reported pressing defects. Since these are pressed in Europe, delivery time has taken longer than anticipated but we are happy to report they will be at our warehouse any day now.”
UPDATE 9/12/11 – Fans have created Heady Nuggs Petition. Please sign it and send it as directed here.
If you have a defective copy of Clouds Taste Metallic (from the recent Heady Nuggs reissue box) please leave a comment below (or, if you prefer – tweet @FutureHeartDay) noting if it is colored or black. UPDATE: Also, please comment if your copy of Clouds is not defective! We’re trying to figure out how many copies have been effected, and what we can do about this. Spread the word to people you know who may have purchased the box, and follow twitter.com/FutureHeartDay for updates.
