On 23 July 2007, a member of Hexagon Sun confirmed on the Boards of Canada Yahoo Groups that a new major release by the band is coming up. The post was made under the username "hex_official", and stated that an announcement would be made via the official Boards of Canada website closer to the release date.

from wiki....

which i know is wiki....


but still, did anyone post/hear about this? do i just live in a cave? 08 candidate?

and since i already started a boc thread i might as well ask here if anyone has the hell interface recordings. care to share if you do?

i hope a new record and after seeing what kind of response a reclusive act like daft punk got a few years back is enough to get them to break their trend

I'm one of the biggest boc fans out there, but its VERY doubtful that they'll play at Coachella. They haven't performed live since 2001 or something.

Daft Punk hadn't performed in America since 1997. My Bloody Valentine -- well, I'm not sure how long it's been since they've performed live, but it's been longer than 6 years, and nobody would say right now that it's VERY doubtful that they'll play next year. (Not saying it's a definite but with the rumors that even Entertainment Weekly ran with, the time for MBV to play Coachella seems nigh.) So the length of time that's elapsed since the last time Boards of Canada performed can't really be used as an argument for why they're unlikely to play next year because that issue's proven to be moot in the past.

betao
09-29-2007, 06:10 PM
Nah, its not the length of time, its the fact that they've only done about a dozen shows in all the years they've been around. I highly doubt they'll ever play at coachella.

Plaid is good, I like them as remixers, but they also have some questionable material.. well, they are good overall. Their remix of Bjork's All is full of love is excellent.

Plaid's Double Figure is pretty good album too.

the old tunes have been available for a few years, though they've never officially been recognized as being real/confirmed or not by the band. I would love to see an official release of the tracks though, or at least someone who has a copy of these rare tapes (I think one was on ebay once) get a proper transfer and flac em!

orbit
10-20-2007, 09:11 PM
Well, looks like those tapes (or some of them) were confirmed like theirs by Marcus in a recent interview. He said that they should have been more careful about who they handed the tapes, and even that they think they know who leaked them. I know they've been working with past compilations, demos, lots of unheard work from 1980ish, trying to organize them, and probably release them someday. But it's more like an aside project, so it will take time.

superfiction
10-20-2007, 10:48 PM
i dont get why theyre so weird about their old stuff. granted its not as good, but who cares. its different. its old.

orbit
10-21-2007, 02:27 AM
They said somewhere that some of the old work doesn't fit with the BOC thing, so they couldn't release that stuff under the BoC project, but like I said in the other post, they've been working in an aside project organizing some of their old material (hopefully to be released anytime soon). Back in the days, there were rumors about the brothers themselves controlling the leaked old tunes when they just appeared in soulseek, and who knows if it was true. BoC just said that the legit old tunes were leaked by someone they know. So, we know there are in fact 'official' old tunes floating around, but nowadays it's not easy to get them since most of the supposed compilations are joined by lot of fakes.

10-21-2007, 06:34 PM
well actually, the tracklists for 2 of their shows are on wiki. This first one was supposedly recorded by a member of the audience.

1999 - 10 year anniversary for warp records (this may not be the FULL setlist)

1. "Zoetrope" – 5:11
2. "Happy Cycling" – 7:27
3. "The Color of the Fire" – 1:14
4. "Telephasic Workshop + The Smallest Weird Number" – 8:10
5. "Aquarius" – 7:43
6. Unknown – 2:55
7. Unknown – 11:27

The Lighthouse Party (2000) (again, this may not be the full setlist, just some supposed recordings)

1. "Sixtyten (Incomplete)" – 2:17
2. "1969" – 5:48
3. Unknown – 7:07
4. "In a Beautiful Place Out in the Country" – 4:43
5. "Amo Bishop Roden" – 5:57
6. "Everything You Do Is a Balloon" – 5:30
7. "Julie and Candy" – 5:57

this is all according to wiki, so who knows.

are you talking about hell interface?

Who knows, we can get catalog 3 or midas touch, but how we know we are getting legit stuff. Same with Hooper bay, the old tunes, acid memories, etc. I mean, how do you know those are the legit tracks if we don't have anything to compare them with? There're copies with shorted times, even with different titles.. Yeah, we KNOW there are legit copies out there, but how do we know which ones are the real ones and which are fakes? We can tell some sounds more BoC like, but sometimes that's not enough.

Among the hundreds of persons who claim to have the legit ones, I've just believed in two. Sadly, they won't share those tapes.

Campfire Headphase maybe wasn't a MHTRTC, but it wasn't bad at all. I love it, same as every album they've done. They always try to explore new sounds,sometimes seems like they put unnecessary layers, and well they can't please everyone. I like CH because it's very experimental, it looked pretty obvious that they wanted to try new things adding more guitars and lacking of voices, trying to not get stuck in 'what the fans are expecting,' which is kind of cool if you ask me.

no album has messed with mind more than MHTRTC.

Last week, I was laying in bed, half asleep, listening to the album. Eventually, I did fall asleep, and started to dream. But, in my dream, I could hear the music I was listening to. It was playing in my dream. I would even incorporate it into my dream. At one point in my dream, I came up to a stereo. I thought the stereo was where the music was coming from, and tried turning the stereo off. I thought it was broken, because the music did not stop playing (because it was still on in reality). Eventually I woke up, feeling somewhat freaked out.

I love this album.

My sources say Blue Oyster Cult will not be at Coachella. However they may preform at the Rock Yard at Fantasy Springs casino in Indio.
