Bootleg is Murder

I wouldn’t have picked this one up if it wasn’t for the beautiful color of the vinyl. Really like the blue with green mixed in, it fits the rest of the artwork. Obviously it is a counterfeit, but very nicely done.

At the same local record store, I also found that Leatherface 7”, I dug up this Urban Dance Squad 7”. Cool a-side track and great b-side too.


Little White God

I never come across Leatherface singles in the wild. How it ended up at my local record store, that never have punk records, is beyond me. But seeing it there, I had to get it.


Hand In Glove

Finally I found a first pressing of the debut 7” by the Smiths. They still used a Manchester contact address on the back of the sleeve. Great single and pretty cool b-side. Funny enough this is the only single that was released only in the UK.

Sorry about the poor pictures, silver sleeve and not enough light never works out.

Last night I dreamt…

…somebody gave me two test presses. Of course that didn’t happen, but I did buy two on Discogs last week. Both are Smiths singles. Of course they don’t have a cover, so I posted the poster two, to make it a bit less boring.

That Joke Isn’t Funny Anymore from the Meat Is Murder LP.

Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me from the Strangeways Here We Come LP.

G.I. Joe

Nice to do some trading again. I can’t even remember the last time, I did a decent trade.

I swapped a few Mouthpiece shirts for this Mouthpiece LP. Although I liked those shirts, I barely wore them, so trading for a record I really want is very good trade in my book.

This LP made for specific show, one of the REV 25 shows, if my memory serves me well. I don’t think I would ever get my hands on a copy, so I am happy I did.



Back in the early 00’s I catched a few shows of Interpol and the first two records are still something I like to play from time to time. Especially on the way to work in the morning. From the same seller I got those Morrissey singles from yesterday, I decided to add this single to my order. The a-side is great, the remix on the b-side is a bit dull.



Two great mid nineties single by Morrissey, excellent warm up for the new record. My Love Life doesn’t get that much love. Maybe the lyrics are a bit basic, but I really like the vibe of the song. The More You Ignore Me… is a song that is played more during live shows and probably is one of the best Morrissey songs.

Dutch punk and Dutch funk

Two 7”s arrived today, one is an old Dutch punk single from 1979 and the other one is a Dutch funk metal rock rap one from the early 90”s.

Test press Tuesday 

Finally another test press Tuesday. It has been a while. This is the debut 7”s by the Omegas from Toronto, Canada. I know Canada for sure but Toronto is a small guess. The bass player is one of the OG members of Belgium’s own Justice. (Not to be confused with the French house duo Justice.) So expect a fast and rough hardcore single.
