Trying to catch up with months worth of post is actually kind of fun. I get to listen to stuff I purchased months back and basically treat them like they’re new all over again. A record that I actually got last Record Store Day is the Damnation A.D. rendition of “Pornography” by The Cure.
I do enjoy listening to The Cure and I find the way Damnation A.D. treated this album was that of respect. They really pulled it off and made it their own.
Well since I had the blue RSD copy, I found that I wanted a copy of the white smoke copy as well.
This one was only available by mail-order from Organized Crime Records. I saw a pre-order was up for this either from Instagram or an email. I figure why not grab one of these as well.
There we only 213 of these made with a special silk screened cover. It looks like this is actually still available from Crime Scene Merch if one needed another copy of this record. Go get it!
One thing I have learned from both Mike (The One thing That Still Holds True Blog) and Marcus (Endless Quest), is if you don’t ask you don’t get. Such is the case with this Vision rip of the Search 7″. I really wanted a copy of this since I first saw pictures of it on Instagram. I let people know about it and made sure that if anyone had an extra copy I wold gladly buy or trade for it.
Lucky for me Veith reached out to me to see if I still needed a copy of this. I was stoked when I got that email. Thankfully, I had something he wanted for this trade to be completed.
This was from the second press of green vinyl where 100 of these Vision rip covers were made for the Dave Franklin benefit.
Now, if someone would be kind enough to drop me a line stating that they have a green copy of Vision “Undiscovered” for me, I would be alright with that.
Whoa, I’m back. Life just took a detour so I had to take a break from this for a while. Hopefully, I’ll be back on a regular posting schedule since I actually have records to post now. So, let’s start off with a banger.
This one was a lucky buy. I got a Discogs alert for the Iron Cross rip off cover for this record but when I finally decided to put it in my cart it actually sold. Thankfully, I decided to look through this seller’s list or else I wouldn’t have found this.
I guess the person who bought the Iron Cross rip already had a copy of this. So losing one record gained me another. I figure that the other versions are gonna be easier to find that this little number. For those that are willing to help I’m still looking for a Fuck Off cover as well as the Iron Cross cover. Let me know.
This is 23 out of 25 for those that care about this stuff.
The first time I heard the Free demo I wanted them to release a 7″ as soon as possible. Then I finally saw them play in DC last year and I was hooked. Anything Pat Flynn touched was pretty much gold in my eyes. So, I pretty much had high expectations for their first record.
The thing is though I think I waited too long for this 7″ to come to fruition. Even after listening to it a few times now I think I hyped myself up too much for this record.
I like what I’m hearing and I know that once I really listen to it I know I’ll probably get hooked. Right now though I’m listening to other things. I think I’ll revisit this in a couple of days during a day off to actually absorb this record.
200 on clear and 500 on grey from Triple-B Records.
Ok, so I’m still pretty psyched about the newest Protester record. I still find myself getting excited when listening to this. In my last post about Protester I asked for help in getting a copy of the record release version of the album.
Thankfully, I was able to get one with relative ease. Someone sold me their copy and only asked for what they paid for it. This doesn’t happen to often.
I really like this cover. What sucks is that every one of these I’ve seen has got a really shitty glue job. I can live with it.
150 made DIY style. The way hardcore was meant to be.
