Sludge Scan For January 2000

 

Happy New Year!

As Of January 5, 2000.

Sebastian Bach "Bring Em Bach Alive" 4,735              
Guns N’ Roses "Live Era – ’87-’93" 278,059           
Methods Of Mayhem 159,438          
Motley Crue "Entertainment Or Death"

70,432

Sebastian Bach sold 493 CDs last week and only 329 CDs this week.  329 CDs in one week for the entire United States!  Local bands have sold more CDs in one week.  That’s a really low number.  I guess those 13 interviews a day just aren’t helping out.  You can see the effects of the Christmas drop.  He went from 493 to 329. 

Guns N’ Roses also took quite a drop going from 71,929 last week to 37,641 this week.  GNR is at number 71 on the Billboard charts.

Motley Crue sold 13,430 last week and dropped to 8,476 this week.

Methods Of Mayhem sold 38,613 last week and 37,562 this week for #72 on the Billboard charts.  For some reason Methods Of Mayhem keeps selling at a steady figure.

Tom Mathers’ Cherry Street CD has sold a whopping 53 copies.  Perris Records, his label, is based out of Austin, Texas, but he’s only sold 1 CD in all of Texas.  But it’s probably gold in Norway or something!  Yeah, right.
