Just finished my first listen - happy to report that mine sounded amazing and played perfectly with no skipping. Sorry that you may have gotten a bad copy, but hopefully it's not widespread.
edit: I should say, the tone arm is definitely more wavy on side B but audibly I could not hear anything weird.
edit 2: Well shit, on my second listen I did hear some weirdness.
Any problem with a pressing with a consistent error is going to vary depending on the equipment used. Hopefully it's not too bad on most setups, but some decks will not play off centered vinyl. It's sounding, from what I hear (no puns intended) that the whole batch is pressed badly for SS. I'll have to wait and see if mines the same - Amazon over here have it and it might be a different pressing? quite often the EU stuff is pressed in Germany and the US stuff is done in the US. I might order a SS from over here and we can do a check. Can someone post a Matrix number from SS?
From Discogs: Matrix / Runout (Side A [Etched]): FKR087-1-A NT[interlocking]
Matrix / Runout (Side B [Etched]): FKR087-1-B NT[interlocking]
Is it legit though? I read what the second LP "would" contain but if this is the only place to pre order,it this bullshit? Or did we luckily catch an early glimpse of what's to come?
Early glimpse. Bull Moose is legit, and commonly posts the first pre-order for new releases as soon as they get (even a whiff of) details for a release. Sometimes this works to their detriment and they have to remove the ability to purchase items until they are officially announced.
I live in Kansas City and 90.9 The Bridge is my favorite local radio station. Craig also did "They Know Where I Live" aka "Dudes From St. Paul" (posted below) and "Maggie I've Been Searching For Our Son" (not posted to YouTube yet) as part of this session.

The official RSD list doesn't have any THS listed either in the large-press runs or the limited runs... Do they ever have a 2nd round of announcements?
EDIT: I now see that they're listed as "FIRST RELEASES". So does that mean that it's not really a limited RSD run?
It appears that is the case, that they will be released first for RSD, but not as RSD exclusives.
I wouldn't be surprised if the RSD versions are on colored vinyl, and then they're released later on black. Usually for the "RSD First" releases there is something unique/exclusive (e.g. colored, numbered, etc.) about the version available on RSD.
Yes, for $5. Just click the Pledge Now button under the video, not any of the exclusives on the right side.
Thanks, but it says I have to choose at least one exclusive.
Try putting in an additional amount (at the bottom of the list of exclusives) of $5 (which should change your total to $10) and then change the additional amount back to $0 (which should change your total back to $5 for just the download). Doing that worked for me yesterday.
