I.e. more money than exists in the world.
Macroeconomics isn’t a FACT specialism, but we reckon this Discogs seller has inflated the worth of his new purchase by just a smidge. Someone called Tyler00o is offering Loefah’s ‘Midnight/Woman’ 12″, the great lost dub that finally went on sale this morning, housed by the Because Heroique label and limited to a measly 300 copies, on the online marketplace for the tidy sum of £340,282,000,000,000,014,192,072,600,900,000,000,000.00. Plus shipping, of course.
Good luck with that! Copies went on sale in just two shops this morning – London’s Honest Jon’s and Bristol’s Idle Hands, who warned customers not to turn up outside the shop this morning.
Please, please, please do not wait outside the shop tomorrow morning – I am not execting the delivery – seriously people, please.

As I have stated before we are not expecting that record to be delivered today. We have many other records for sale.

Update: The record is no longer for sale.
Maybe someone bought it? Maybe it broke Discogs view counter? More copies are already appearing on the marketplace though, with one priced at £200, another priced at £500 and the other at $666. The record sold out in 15 minutes.
Had it been released in time, this 12″ would surely have made our rundown of the year’s 10 most collectable records, which you can see here.
