No for an answer-you laugh 7" 1st press

Super happy to pick this up in a record shop (remember them?) for just £5. As you can see it comes with all the bits and pieces (even the recycling flyer). This is the first time I've ever owned a first pressing. Don't get me wrong I've always had a copy of this record since I first got into hardcore in the late 80's but it was always a later press. To be honest this wasn't one of my favourite early Rev releases. I always prefer the NYHC sound and this lot were from Orange county but it's still a good record that deserves a spot in any HC collection and was is so better than their disapointing 'a thought crusade' LP that came afterwards (on Hawker/Roadrunner). Still a nice find and at a good price and it's always nice to find records the old fashioned way instead of going through eGay. I believe they're doing a reunion show next month. Check it out. Doubt I'll be going though as it's a bit out of the way for me.

Brain Dead-Priest killer 7"

The 2nd full 7" by Brain dead on Feast of tentacles records and only limited to 100 on green. Have to say Brain dead are one of the best UK bands in recent years (up there with Rot in hell, who they did a split with). Fast ripping power violence/grind with some of the most hateful lyrics you will ever hear. Seriously. As you can tell with the title of this, it's got a very anti-religion slant to it. I actually ordered this from the label but it went missing in the post and the guy was being funny about sending me a replacement if I rightly remember so I never got got a copy until now. Glad I did though as it pretty much completes my Brain dead collection and it's one of their best releases. A big improvement over the first.
