Pink Flower Circus

I think it’s been about two years since I actually started looking for a copy of “Electric Flower Circus” on pink.  There were a hundred of these pressed which was for their record release.  I probably should have gone to that record release show and it would have saved me the hassle of looking for this.  It would have also saved me some money but for some reason this thing is rare and nobody wants to give theirs up.

Beautiful color that actually works well with the cover. I’m glad to finally own this so that I can put this collection to bed. It’s actually not complete though. I’m missing the black versions but I’m not gonna be stressed out over that. A test press would be kind of cool to have as well.

Anyone have any rare Give stuff that they don’t need let me know.  I’m always looking to add to my collection.

Confusion

So, I haven’t purchased a Metallica album since I was in high school   I never really showed any interest since the black album came out.  Now, I do own the first five albums.  I just feel like they didn’t have anything else to offer me after that self-title album.  I don’t know why but I never found them important enough for me to buy.

A week ago though my curiosity got the best of me and I found myself listening to “Hardwired…To Self-Destruct”.  What surprises me about this album is that I was really getting into it and the fact that it was really good.  I had no choice but to get a copy of it on vinyl.

I decided to get the indie record version which came in this nice dark wine colored record.  I probably would have gotten the die hard version if I had access to it but this is good enough for me.

I have to admire these guys though,  They’ve been rockin out for 35 years now and it doesn’t seem like they are going to stop anytime soon.  The question for me now is am I going to explore all those other albums that I neglected.  Maybe if I have extra money to throw around.

Let’s see if I’m still into this album next week.  Maybe someone will convince me to check out all the other stuff that I missed out on.  Hmmmm…

Move thru Record Release

Continuing from my last post I mentioned seeing Turnstile.  It had been at least a year since I saw theme play and I really wanted to see them play their new songs live.  This just happened to be the record release show as well so wouldn’t you know it they had record release covers for their newest record.

This version was limited to 125 with the record release cover. According to Pop Wig though the lavender color had a thousand pressed.  I actually have extras of these as well since the merch guy didn’t have change at the time I just told him to give me some extra records.

Before going to the show I actually already had the pink version of the record which was limited to 200.  While I guess it would be cool to get the more limited white copy and the other colors, I am not going to get caught up in this. History has shown us that there will probably be more copies with other iterations of the cover. I just don’t want to get sucked in.  There are other things I need.

The show itself was pretty awesome.  Turnstile did not disappoint and they get the crowd revved up from the beginning.  The only thing that sucked about the show in general was that when it hit 11 p.m. security showed up and shut it down before the band could finish their set.  Such is life.

Angel Dust Tour Sleeve

Last month I decided to get out of my house and actually go to a show.  It’s been a while since I actually went to a show and I was eager to see both Angel Du$t and Turnstile.  As always A.D. put on a phenomenal show and if you’ve never seen them live I suggest you do one day. They are not to be missed.

As for the record I’m still listening to it at least once a week. It’s just damn good that I can’t seem to stop listening to it.  So when I saw that they were selling the record with a tour sleeve I just had to get a copy.

This came in blue, which according to Pop Wig was a band exclusive and limited to 200.  So I guess they made a mistake when they came to numbering a few of them because mine is out of a hundred.

Well, I actually bought a couple of extras and you can see they all have different messages but the other two are out of 200.  Pretty cool that each one is unique.

Mouthpiece GI Joe

When Mouthpiece played This is Hardcore back in 2011 they came out with this limited version of their discography.  I actually thought that I was never going to own one of these things as they were limited to 50.

The cover itself is of an old GI Joe with a gold Revelation Records logo. In my opinion this is one of the best looking covers out there. To finally own it after all this time goes to shows me that if I’m patient enough I can get what I want.

I don’t know what these were going for but I know that I got this at the bargain bin price of $17. When I posted this on my Instagram someone commented that they sold theirs for ten times that much.

What I need to do now is visit this seller again to see if they have any other hidden gems in their collection that I can get for a steal.
