Newbury Comics has a new repress of the test pressing for Third if anyone's interested. Limited to 700 on orange vinyl.

that is actually one of the strangest albums I've ever heard, topping most avant garde stuff for me in terms of being subversive, because of all its subtle weirdness within a power pop construct, just a disorienting experience, like you're listening to 70s bar rock except it's 2am and you're smashed

I think part of the weirdness is that it was never properly 'finished' and put together as an intentional and cohesive album experience - and the label released it anyway. I think at this point, with all the different pressings/releases of it, it's got around 3 different 'official' names and 3 or 4 different 'official' tracklists/track-sequences.

A great album (albums?) for sure.

Edit: "like you're listening to 70s bar rock except it's 2am and you're smashed" - that's a lovely and accurate way to put it, lol. It may be more fragmented than Pavement's 'Wowee Zowee'
