Post M3 on Discogs
This just popped up on Discogs, and for a rather exorbitant price:

EDIT: It's gone!
http://www.discogs.com/buy/CD/Flashbulb ... 2406?ev=wh

However, note that it says it's still sealed...

The seller has other things, too, such as a Drain Mode On 12".

Yeah. I saw it too.

111 Euro!

By the time I clicked on it, it was already gone!

I really want a copy (!) but not for that kind of money!

The cool thing would be for Alphabasic to reissue the cd and stick it to the gougers!

I think I paid $80 for mine, and $120 for my Acidwolf (the limited version). 111 Euros is a bit ridiculous, though if it *is* still sealed...

While we're on the topic of reissues, though, I know a few people are interested in Benn doing a reissue of Réunion. I already got a copy, but I'd love to see the other fans be able to snag one as well.

Yes, Reunion has seemed, over the years, to be the most sought-after. Kirlian Selections not far behind. Of course, us crazy collectors want things like These Open Fields 1st edition, Acidwolf VCA edition, M3 Lime, and so on, but we're in the minority, I think.

Which reminds me. I have a track list for M3 Lime. It turns out that most songs were included in various leaks of unreleased tracks which have been shared on these forums (including the previous incarnation of these forums). I don't feel at liberty to divulge how I got the track list, but trust me - it is certainly official (except the order):

black #8 (this mix) - mixed by this instrument
I'm Always Here (Flashbulb Audiofuck)
kibbles,mad japanese wizard
Nautilis - disLEXIC (Short Gesture By The Flashbulb)
Nautilis - Olaf (Flashbulb Remix)
The Flashbulb - A Walk In Maise
The Flashbulb - Black #13 (Porn Drone Mix by CHR15TPUNCH3R)
The Flashbulb - Breakbeats Saying Sorry
The Flashbulb - Fake Rubber Hotdog
The Flashbulb - God Sheds Snakeskin (Earth-tone Mix)
The Flashbulb - Kibbles And Wizard (Spring Tits Mixby Benn Jordan)
The Flashbulb - Red Vector Stick (sick mod quest mix)
The Flashbulb - Red Vector Stick
The Flashbulb - Ripcord
The Flashbulb - The Exit Track (Gymnopedie Mix)

Is M3 Lime even real? I mean, I'm sure it exists, but to what extent was it ever available? What does the CD even look like? Can anyone on these forums show us a picture? I always forget this one exists, since it's so far off my "I'll find one of these someday" radar (like Fly! and Lawn Funeral EP)

From what I recall, M3 Lime had a physical release, but was extremely limited. Billed as remixes of M3, I would guess that it was in CD-R style. Somehow, I recall seeing a low res picture of its cover a long time ago, but my memory could easily be unreliable here. I definitely remember seeing Lawn Funeral EP's album art when I first discovered The Flashbulb back in 2005. It was a red background with black silhouetted blades of grass in the foreground along the bottom, with the album title in the middle in black. No physical release that I recall. Fly! EP was before my time, I think.

I remember seeing a picture of M3 Lime(and other obscure releases too), was probably Mark who posted. From what I remember it looked like a little robot on a planet's surface? Something like this: Image That might not have been the correct release though and I might be off...
I don't think the Lawn Funeral was EP ever available psychically but Benn put the Dats on a filesharing site some time ago. Fly EP was already long gone when I discovered The Flashbulb in 2002. The old website said it was sold out but I remember a guy on the old forums who said his friend had it. I never saw proof though so I'm not sure I do or want to believe it ;)
Anyway on a sidenote; I'm pretty hyped that the Caustic Window LP has surfaced and is going to be ripped digitally :) I chipped in on the kickstarter that went through but I never thought I would get to hear this album I've been dreaming about the last 15 years.

Nice! Enjoy. Glad to read that some of that money is going to RDJ himself.
I'm guessing it's a matter of time before the album is leaked though.

I wish the The would finally do the same with "Gun Sluts", "The Pornography of Despair" (and "2 Blocks Below Canals").
I've been waiting for the first 2 for over 20 years! :D

HOLY SHIT!
I think I bought M³ for €1.00!!!

Let's see if it goes through.
The guy is not rated/a new seller on Discogs.

Crossing fingers!

Something tells me this was a mistake...
