Rounding up the 45's

My LP and 7" intrays are out of control right now, and whilst I'm to the untrained eye looking at the piles and shaking my head, obviously dear collector friends I'm secretly happy as a pig in the proverbial!! More of those lovely slabs of wax to listen to and write about! Bonza!!!

Anyway, in a bid to at least get rid of a few of the 7"s I grabbed a small pile.

Slant 6 - What Kind Of Monster Are You?

My bro over at Donotconsideryourselffree (link at the side) posted about this one a couple of weeks ago and being a bit of a sucker for girl groups that rock I couldn't resist investigating.

Rise and Fall - Clawing

Love the look of this one, the artwork is great and the blue and pink vinyl looks sweet as hell too. Out of 300.

Magic Mazes - Magic Tommy Jackson

Jonah Matranga could release a LP of him humming 80's pop hits in the shower and I'd probably pick up a copy. Moral Mazes is his new group with J. Robbins from Jawbox. This is the blue vinyl version out of 300.

The Nation Of Ulysses - Birth Of The Ulysses Aesthetic

1991, Dischord Records, awesome!

Shai Hulud - A Profound Hatred Of Man

Usual story, bought it on CD back in the day so was missing from the record collection, found it cheap and corrected my stupidity! Shai Huluds best work?

Madball - Rebellion

Seems to have taken a ridiculous amount of time for me to get a copy of this one. White vinyl.

East Meets West

Sick Of It All, Killing Time, Vision - 1990 was a good year for the East and West to collide. Classic!

Hardcore 1990 - East meets West

Just black vinyl I'm afraid, however I know there's a Clear vinyl version.

Forced Order

Feels like a slightly odd release from Revelation Records this one. Not that the label hasn't made some left of centre choices in the past I guess so maybe I shouldn't be surprised. Two raging tracks on offer with two other tracks of..noise. 

Forced Order - Retribution

There's a yellow vinyl version out of 300 but I've got no idea on this grey vinyl -700???

Start Glowing Today

I think like most of the good folk out there in blogging land, when Revelation Records re-issued this record on glow in the dark vinyl I couldn't resist.

Gorilla Biscuits - Start Today

Embossed cover with printed inner sleeve. Winner!

Through The Turnstile Into 2015

Hi gang! Sorry for the delay in getting a post done in 2015! A brother is busy like a mutha-fucker at the minute. Truth be told in order to keep this blog going for the foreseeable future I'm probably gonna have to take to just posting pictures of the records I buy or something. I just don't have time to sit down and write stuff at the minute. Not great reading but bear with me.

So anyway...

Turnstile - Pressure To Succeed

So we're on to the fourth pressing of this record and I'm completely fine with that 'cos frankly I fucking love these tunes. This is the purple version out of 1000. I like that Reaper have changed the colours of the cover for each pressing.

They've changed the centre labels front and back too which again is a nice touch. This is the white/purple version out of 500. Truth be told neither of these are very purple, I've noticed recently a lot of the Reaper releases don't look how they do at the point of pre-order. I guess that's because they do a 'artists impression' or something before they are pressed.

Green and Black version out of 300. For some reason this one has the 3rd press cover?!? Maybe they ran out I dunno, everyone else get theirs in this cover?

Shocking group shot I know, you'll have to excuse the massive amounts of glare. Still missing a few. Anyone help a brother out??
