This seems like a suitable thread to resurrect.
Since starting to listen to Escape Pod and almost simultaneously-but-coincidentally begun to listen to Surf/Instro music, Daikaiju
is my newest, favouritest, band! (pushing "Ghosts and Vodka" into 2nd or 3rd place).
At wikipedia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Escape_Pod_%28podcast%29
- it says:
Escape Pod's music is provided by surf rock band Daikaiju with the band's permission. The opening theme is the instrumental song "The Final Phase," and the closing theme is "Choujikuu Mitsukai" ("Super-Dimensional Angels"). Both are from the album The Phasing Spider Menace, which will be brought back into print as a joint venture between Daikaiju and Escape Pod in late 2006.
Are those indeed the song titles?

Now, I've found a number of places to buy the recent self-titled one, but there appear to be two flavours of it. On eBay f'instance, you get hits both for Daikaiju [Enhanced]
and for Daikaiju
. (Sadly, no hits for The Phasing Spider Menace
CD on eBay, yet.)
On Amazon.ca, - http://www.amazon.ca/exec/obidos/ASIN/B0007GAER6/escapepod-20
- just the "Enhanced" version.http://www.daikaiju.org/daikaiju/merch.html
sez nothing about "Dikaiju [Enhanced]".
getting to the point(s)...
- Are there two versions of the Daikaiju (self-titled) CD... "Enhanced" and vanilla?
- Anybody know what the "Enhanced" content is?
I tend to get paranoid whenever I suspect that there may a choice to be made, and I do not have a clear notion as to what the choices are in getting the biggest bang for my buck. Hence all the quoting, to provide documentation in support of my paranoia.
finally (and I think I just figured this out)
- Daikaiju(S/T) has (apparently) a publication date of 2005.
On their myspace blog it sez.

New Music Coming To You
You Will Pee Your Pants
So, that "Phase 5" has yet to be released? For the past couple of days, I thought that the self-titled CD was Phase 5
, until I did some counting on http://www.daikaiju.org/daikaiju/merch.html
Both are from the album The Phasing Spider Menace, which will be brought back into print as a joint venture between Daikaiju and Escape Pod in late 2006.
Did that scheme fall through?
