The second in series of short articles highlighting some of the rarer CDs that I have been able to acquire. This will be broken up into two section, at the top a little information about the recording and leading up to the sales of the CD. At the bottom will be a look at the CD and its packaging.
Today we will be looking at the first release by ヤなことそっとミュート (Yanakoto Sotto Mute) entitled 「8CM EP」. It was released in August of 2016 by Crimson Printing.
On July 18th 2016 the group announced via twitter that it would be releasing a single in the month of August. By this time they had already been recording the music for the release.
On the 26th of July Nadeshiko was in the studio recording vocals, by this point there was not an actual release date announced. She finished recording on the 29th. I am assuming the other girls were recording at this time as well, I could not find any tweets about them though.
On August 1st they announced that the CD would be sold at a two lives on the 23rd and 25th of August at 新宿SAMURAI. The jacket designs were released on the 10th, the same tweet also said that there would only be 1000 copies made in three different variations, one for each member.
The 21st to the 23rd of August were spent assembling the CD cases and getting everything ready for sale. Initial sales began on the 23rd and concluded on the 25th. After that time they were sold at all shows the girls did up until the 20th of September 2016 when the last 100 copies were put up for sale at the Shinjuku Tower Records.
