: : : 1) Any suggestions for finding Vacuum CDs in USA?

: : I think they might be possible to get on the net through some net-record stores.
: : I know there are some Russian bootlegs out there (Vacuum is big in Russia).

: No US net-record stores offered any help, but Amazon-UK did offer up Vacuum's _The Plutonium Cathedral._ I will try AltaVista's translation to check Italian and German record stores.

Amazon-UK cancelled my order; their supplier couldn't get it after all. AltaVista's international music directory turned up three stores that had Vacuum CDs, but one wouldn't ship out of the British Isles. Interestingly, _Plutonium Cathedral_ turned up most often. I'd expected their newer works to appear more frequently.

All of this matters little because the official Vacuum site now offers RealMedia versions of some songs. Try this URL:

Downloading files from their site took quite a while: 524kb in 300-400s for "Big Ideas, Grand Vision." I have a broadband connection, and transferred during late afternoon in eastern Russia and mid-morning in mid-western USA to take advantage of off-peak hours. Exercise patience if you try this at home. Last, quality of the RM playback stank. The songs I heard sounded like they'd passed through a mid-range bandpass filter and a narrow one at that.
