Stuff for trade.

Okay, got some spares for trade, let me know if you want anything. First up is the classic Bad Brains 'Rock for light' LP on white vinyl. This is a German pressing on Line records. Not sure how many of these came out but it was put out in the 80's and you don't see it about much.
Next is the 2nd Screeching weasel LP 'Boogada,Boogada,boogada'. This is a UK pressing on Wetspots records. It was released on Lookout in the states with a crap cover. This one is miles better and there were only 1000 pressed. I'll put up more trade items up shortly.

Coalesce-A safe place 7" Limited cover

Got this in a trade years ago and even then I thought it was an odd one. It's the ultra limited version of the excellent 'A safe place' 7" on Edison recordings. It was sold on the Indianapolis-Chicago weekend tour in around '97-98.. The cover is xeroxed cardboard and the labels are plain white. Even though it's not individually numbered there are meant to be 75 of these in existence.

Crossed out discography LP

Despite their 7" on slapaham being one of the most collectable and sought after raraties on that label this discography Lp (also on slapaham) is even rarer. 200 on white and the rest on black and I've seen people fork out a bit just for the black version. It collects all the tracks previously released on wax (7", split 7" w/Man is the bastard, split 5" with Drop dead, comp trx etc) and also adds a couple of live sets. One of those legendary bands from the 90's that were only about a short but their influence is still being felt to this day.
Worth noting that before the slapaham LP, a crossed out discography had already been released on 10" (albiet unofficially). Actually this angered the band so much that's why the official release finally came about. Funny the culprit of this release, Sergio Montoya is on the fuck you list. Actually I got duped by him in a trade so he certainly lived up to his rep. Nice release though as you can see. Even though he put it out he was actually after big rare items to trade for it. The cheek, eh?

Dead Nation-Dead end LP on yellow.

One of the greatest hardcore LP's this decade (in my opinion) came right at the beginning of it back in 2000. (the other being the Last in Line Lp, also that year). Musically and attitude wise this was a throwback to the 80's and it felt as genuine as if it had been recorded then apart from the lyrics being about the modern age (America on line etc). The music was fast and hard (ala DRI, Neos etc) and this album grabbed you by the throat and didn't let go until it had finished. Seriously, try putting on this record without listening to it start to finish. It's that good. 200 were pressed on yellow by Deadalive records and it took me ages to get one off ebay. (I always lost). Members went onto do Tear it up but you know that shit already.

SSS-1st LP Limited show editions

Okay to celebrate the release of the new SSS album I've decided to dig out two special versions of the 1st Lp. It was first released by dead and gone records in 2006 with 300 pressed on clear and the rest pressed on black and then re-released by earache last year with 100 on red and the rest on black. Also Foxy and the boys got a special set of different colours each but good luck getting those unless you can blag them off the band.
There were two special show releases. The Thrashbag (above) was sold at the annual Night of the living dead bash in October 2006 and although it may look fucking ghastly you can't get into the bastard either as it's stitched up without unstitching it so I've left it because I'm lazy. Only 20 of these were made. Next up is the Waltons pack sold at the Muncipal waste gig in August 2007 which SSS and some other bands who still party like it's 1987 played in Liverpool. Apparently singer Foxy has a love for old TV show 'The waltons' (really) so as a special tribute he did this. pretty cool eh? He's sprayed the covers too. This is on red vinyl and comes with poster and other titbits. Just 30 of these buggers were made. A very nice little novelty item.

Hello!! Not posted anything for a while I know but I've been busy with work, house stuff and general laziness/slackness just kicked in. Anyways I've been wondering which direction to take this wholeset up in. Marcus just reviews stuff that he gets through the mail and Lins digs into his collection and unearths his treasures. Decided I'm going to do a bit of both as I do get a lot of stuff in the post and I do have plenty here at home that somebody may find interesting. Okay, keep tuned.

Sloth-Division 1 State champs LP

I picked this up at a gig the other week when I saw a Dutch band called Den of robbers play in Liverpool. Sometimes one great thing about distro stalls is that you can find odd bits + pieces that have been sold out for years everywhere else. I mean this stall even had some Slapaham records stuff there (which called it a day in 2001). Anyway this is where I found this little gem. Sloth are one of the power violence bands whose records are fairly collectable now. Truth be told the only thing by them I've heard prior to this was the split with Hangnail which I must have played about twice (which says something I guess) but I was interested in checking this out and it is damn fine. Brutal yet innovative and varied. Up there with the likes of Man is the bastard etc I reckon. This is a pressing of only 250 on the Paniac label. as you can see my number is 175. Love the Celtic Frost rip off logo too.

Bugout society-Yo baby sup LP

I first bought this back in 1993 and after one listen passed it onto someone else, well that someone recently had a big clear out of his records and gave me a load of stuff and guess what in there? Yep, this. Funny enough I had just recently listened to the 'Look at the children now' NYHC compilation LP for the first time in years and thought that Bugout society's contribution was easily the worst track on there so I didn't have high hopes when I decided to spin this again considering I thought it was shit in the first place. Well guess what? I actually quite like it. No, I'm not in love with it but I did enjoy it when I played it again. Look at the myspace page (yes they have one even though they split up years ago) and they describe themselves as a cross between Beastie boys, Ramones and Adrenalin O.D and I guess that would be about right. Silly lyrics too and the band features Bill Florio who went onto become a legend in his own right with his Max. rock + roll magazine colums. This was put on Drunken Shaolin records (great name, that!!).

Rise Above records package

Got a package from Rise above records last weekend. Tooks ages to come due to the delay of the Blood ceremony LP. Anyway was it worth the wait..? Hmm..I don't know. Not just for this album anyway. I've spun this once so far and I'm not that keen yet. It's got a Sabbath vibe but loads of weird organs + flutes bits. I thought I'd bought a fucking Jethro Tull record at first. Maybe I'll warm to it, you never know. Kerrang like it apparently.

Now for some men's metal. A bit like Manowar musically but with better that would be hard. Actually I do like Manowar on the quiet. Was that my credibilty just making an exit then?
This is good stuff. Their 4th album I think but the first time I've heard them. Play it loud. 200 on clear. Has a big fuck off poster with it as well.

Now here's the best of the bunch. Firebird-This is Bill Steer (ex-Naplam death, Carcass) doing late 60's/early 70's rock type stuff and it fucking rules. I've already listened to it at least 3 times. 300 on this colour I believe. Well worth hunting down. Nice gatefold sleeve too. Get this now!!!

Rudimentary Peni 7" with Neos labels

This turned up in a huge batch of records that I bought off someone last year. I didn't even know it had the Neos label at first so you can imagine my surprise.(and joy) when I found out it did. I do like early Peni stuff, their later stuff isn't really to my taste but the early stuff sounds so angry. Released on Outer himalayan records with the label from the Neos label instead on the B side.Anyways I'm not sure how many of these there were and I've tried finding out. Anyone with info, please get in touch.

Token Entry Ready or not 7"

This is one I've been after for years and actually won it on ebay. Usually I always lose on the last minute but this time I got lucky. It's an old radio copy as well (hence the scribble on the cover). It took forever to come though as it was shipped from the states and then returned. So it's not just Royal mail who are totally shit then. An essential part of any good classic NYHC collection.

Trial Hipster 12"

Okay, this is the one sided 12" by Trial which came out on the Hipster label in the mid 90's sometime. One of those strange releases as I don't thinkit was official and the label had a dodgy rep. I met Duncan Hipster (what a cool name, eh?) a couple of times and he always seemed like a nice guy. Anyway I think this is the demo from 1995. Cheap cover, cheap label-hardly the nicest packaged item but it sounds okay. Between 200-500 of these were pressed and not many got out of Europe. I've owned this before-twice actually but I got a good trade off some American dudes. I found this copy (#3) in a record shop this weekend gone and snapped it up. It is for trade if anyone wants it.


Okay, this is my first EVER blog (on here anyway!!) so it's mainly a tester. I'll mainly be going on about records since that is my obsession. Fellow geeks will understand, everyone else won't.

So let the nerdness comence.
