Notes from Jamie Stewart about this box set …
When I was a kid, a friend of my parents who lived with us sometimes left a Marvin Gaye box set on my record player. It was unclear if he meant it as a gift for me or if he was listening to it himself and forgot to collect it. I had never seen this format before and was confused and fascinated by how much time and work it must have taken. By design, I began to understand that it was not even possible to have a box set unless a band or an artist had made a lot of records. Well, between 2002 and 2022, Xiu Xiu made a lot of records.
Stoned to Death Records, insanely, has honored us with presenting our first cassette box set. It is a collection of all our LPs from 5RC/Kill Rock Stars, Polyvinyl and Graveface as well as a bonus selection of tracks from 7 inches, EPs and digital only releases.
It is thoughtfully constructed using the highest quality tapes, materials, duplication and printing. Included with each numbered and signed box set is a cassette-sized complete lyrics book and liner notes for each release. It will be in an extremely limited edition of 300 copies and will not be reprinted.
We would like to thank YOU so deeply for making this possible, for sticking with us over two decades (Holy Cats! that went by fast) and for, without a doubt, being the absolute best fellow earthlings one could ever dream of.
