Joan Of Arc – Tape Box Set

Leave it to Joan of Arc to put out a box set of 10 cassette tapes.  Spanning their entire career, the box set covers all aspects including the good “Live In Chicago,1999”, the bad “In Rape Fantasy and Terror Sex, We Trust” and the weird “The Gap”.

About the Set: The collection is housed in a custom-built wooden box, elaborately screen-printed, hand-numbered and limited to 100 copies. Each cassette, individually wrapped and featuring the original album art, will also be available for individual purchase and includes high-quality MP3s and lossless audio. This is the first time any JOA albums have been available on Cassette.  (from

Now the Bad News:  The box set sold out two days after it went on sale, but you can still purchase the individual cassette tapes (why the hell would you just want a cassette tape??) here, but you will not get the wooden box.

Albums included in the set:

  • Portable Model Of
  • How Memory Works
  • Live in Chicago, 1999
  • The Gap
  • So Much Staying Alive and Lovelessness
  • In Rape Fantasy and Terror Sex We Trust
  • Joan of Arc, Dick Cheney, Mark Twain
  • Eventually, All at Once
  • Boo! Human
  • Flowers


  • Why the hell would they only do 100 box sets? I think I could sit down and write a list of at least 20 people I KNOW that would have gladly purchased the set (me included), let alone, I’m sure, the loads of fans they have elsewhere in Michigan/Illinois/anywhere else. It just seems silly. I’m not saying make a million, but, no shit they sold out in two days. It’s ridiculous, especially considering the reasonable price. Way more people are into cassettes nowadays than you’d think. Sucks, sucks, sucks. I’m pissed. I’m not buying the individual cassettes…the box would have been neat-o, but they should have made more. Wahhhh.
