''Since U Been Gone''


...and then out of the blue, this skeleton image appears on FU's instagram. So it looks like the above picture shows the front of the sleeve and the ones below show the back. Or vice versa. Probably.

Ayo, so does the Since U Been Gone 10" actually exist? I got word that Damian had the acetate and that it was never pressed.

Acetate (master disk) - Text copied from from Misfits Central:
The first step in the record pressing process is the creation of the master disk, or acetate, which is cut directly from the master tape of the recording. An acetate is a piece of aluminum coated with a layer of vinyl, into which grooves are cut, like a record. Unlike records, however, acetates are usually (see below) one sided, and come in pairs, one for each side of the album. They also often have two center holes; one hole is the standard center hole which acts as the axis for rotation, and the other hole is used by the guiding arm to turn the acetate while the writing stylus cuts the grooves. Some plants now use single-holed acetates which are held in place by suction.
One or, at most, two acetate sets are typically made for an album. Due to their composition, acetates begin to lose their sound quality within a matter of days. If an acetate is not used within three days, another set needs to be cut, or the sound quality of the finished product will suffer. For this reason, the acetate pair is sent immediately (via express mail) to the plater.
