In 2009 Giant Squid hadn't crossed my radar yet. I didn't learn about them until the following year, the summer of 2010, and thus it was too late to order the album for a reasonable price. By the time I wanted a copy of the album on vinyl they were long gone, and now the prices on the two colored versions are through the roof.

On Discogs (the only place I can find where they're listed for sale):

Green/Orange, 103 copies - $135.42
Blue/Flesh, 174 copies - $120.00



Do you remember if the shark tooth was a perk included with the CD only? I'd love to have one of those.
I believe so. Aaron promised to send them to the first fifty folks who placed orders, if I recall correctly.

I funny thing is, Aaron has actually posted on here a few random times (under the screen name RK2THIS), back when the Cenotes EP was due to be released. If you had a dependable way to contact him through a metal forum such as this one, and you sent him a phot of a rare vinyl that you paid big bucks to get, I'd bet he just might send you one if you asked for it. I'm guessing he has hundreds of them lying around. I seem to remember a publicity photo for that album where they had it in its various forms arranged on a table or something with a bunch of the same teeth scattered around it. I should Google that photo and see if I can find it...

EDIT - Here are them there damn photoez (from the band's FB page):


The first photo is the self-funded original pressing that the band themselves released......................................The second photo is the re-release on Translation Loss (I have a copy signed by the entire band ).

Thanks for the link. Reading through that thread brought me a good laugh. It's fun to read back over things that were said that we've since forgotten.

And I completely forgot one of the band members of Giant Squid made an account to post in the thread dedicated to the Cenotes release. Maybe he'll come back when they announce the new album, as I'm sure we'll all be in a tizzy discussing it and hyping it up and bitching about shirt sizes.

But yes, indeed, I'll send him a private message. Even though he doesn't post here anymore, he'll still get an email notification if he gets a private message, and maybe he'll actually read it and respond to my plea for a shark tooth.

I made an offer on the blue/flesh vinyl copy for sale on discogs, but was declined. I just don't want to pay $120 for it.

Ya know, in my fumbling for that photo I found out that they're re-releasing the Monster in the Creek EP on CD...and apparently it will have a DVD in it as well (or at least, some version of it will). This world needs a DVD of Giant Squid. I wonder what the hell the DVD will contain. If we're lucky, it'll be a bunch of live performances. Hell, even if it's a bunch of videos of him recording riffs in front of his and Jackie's daughter Pearl (see the band's FB page...that video actually exists ), I'd still buy the goddamn thing.

Maybe it will contain riveting footage of Aaron scuba diving in the aquarium.

Oooh, I just saw those pictures of the CD. Those teeth are gorgeous.

Here are the vinyl versions (equally as gorgeous):











I hope Aaron responds to my message. I would be forever gracious.

And, uh, about that other photo... did you go hang out with him while he was at work? And photograph him while he was in the tank? I hope this was a public aquarium... or that he consented to this... or that he didn't know a rabid fan was stalking him. Maybe I shouldn't have referenced you in the message...

The photo is from the Cotton Crustacean web site (the t-shirt company run by Aaron and Jackie).

...but I did meet all of them in Chicago in 2009. Lovely people all around.

Second time. I hadn't seen them since the Giant Squid/Cormorant show in 2011
