A few weeks ago I decided to grab some copies of the Forensics’ “Things to do when you should be dead anyways”. Now this was a long overdue purchase as this lp was first released in 2004. I was lucky enough to find three different versions of the l.p. The first version is on clear from Trash Art.
There were 1000 of these pressed: 200 white, 300 clear and 500 black. This one just happens to be clear with hints of black smoke in it. I really like the art work on this album. Lot of detailing involved with just the front cover.
This is the back cover of the album. Again with the amazing art work. The only thing disappointing from this release was the lyric sheet.
I don’t think there was much effort put into this. With the amazing detailing in the dust jacket production I expected more from the lyric sheet production.
These next two were pressed by Magic Bullet in 2010 to commemorate the 5th year anniversary of this release. These were both hand numbered out of 500 and were called the letterpress editions.
My gold copy with gold cover is 302/500 and the black with brown cover is 429/500. Pressing info from Magic Bullet: #1-100: Black vinyl, Gold cover; #101-200: Gold vinyl, Brown cover; #201-350: Gold vinyl, Gold cover; #351-500: Black vinyl, Brown cover for those completists out there.
No jacket with this, instead a foldout cover is used and a cardboard sleeve screened with lyrics to house the record itself.
These are probably the only copies I need. I don’t see myself searching for the other Magic Bullet copies as the differences are negligible to me. If a white Trash Art copy or test press come along then we’ll see what happens, but until then I’m happy with what I’ve got.
