In the early nineties, I was lucky enough to purchase a Chain of Strength “What Holds Us Apart” on clear from Smash in Washington DC. I was really into COS during this time of my life and was pretty stoked that I was able to get one. Around ten or so years later I was really struggling with money so I put it up for sale. As soon as I got the cash for it, I immediately regretted selling it. In fact in the early 2000s I sold pretty much my entire collection just to stay afloat.
Now as I’m trying to rebuild what I once had it’s become more difficult to track things down from my want list. Well I finally got lucky with this one the other day as I was able to scoop up a “What Holds Us Apart” on clear. It’s been a long time, but I’m really stoked to own one of these again. For some reason this was my favorite of all the First Strike pressings.
Now all I need is a white one (and a test if I get lucky) to permanently cross this batch of the list!
