Words Are Not Enough – End Of A Year (2016)

It’s the end of a year…
There’s another one coming

Another year has passed and my collection has grown a bit when it comes to non-hardcore records. Especially in the Smiths, Morrissey and Bruce Springsteen department the grow was steady with some great records.

Looking back it has been a bit of dull year when it comes to hardcore. Luckily I had a ton of other cool and uncool stuff to keep my occupied. But my amount of shows visited is at an all time low, only 17 this year. I did however went to some amazing shows, best one was by far was Dag Nasty at Groezrock.

My top 5:

  1. Dag Nasty @ Groezrock
  2. The Cure @ Antwerp
  3. Weezer @ Amsterdam
  4. Ghost @ Tilburg
  5. Iron Chic @ Groezrock

When it comes to records my year list looks something like this (in random order):

  • Bob Mould – Patch The Sky
  • Burn – From The Ashes
  • New Moon – Space
  • For Pete’s Sake – In Faith and Loyalty
  • Red Hare – Lexicon Mist
  • Dag nasty – Cold Heart/Wanting Nothing
  • Devotion – Headspace Astronaut
  • Tender defender – s/t
  • Muncie Girls – From Caplan to Belsize
  • Descendents – Hyper…
  • Freewill – Sun Return
  • GLOSS – Trans Day Revenge
  • Praise – Leave It All Behind
  • Bloc Party – Hymns
  • Pixies – Head Carrier
  • Krimewatch – demo
  • Cutting Through – demo
  • Beach Slang – A Loud Bash Of Teenage Feelings
  • Fury – Paramount

My favorite picks up of the year are centered around this record. Probably my best pick up ever, but for sure the best pick up of the year. I never imaged I would ever find something like this.

I picked up some The Smiths test presses, I started with Panic. After looking into the The Smiths test presses/promo’s a bit more, I discovered a few more and I picked those up.

I also added a nice Dag Nasty test press to my collection.

I did find some non test presses that I was after too. Some old ones, like these Black Flag, BGK and Artificial Peace records.

Also I was stoked on these two mid nineties records. Both are rare, one is out of 50 and the other one out of 10.000 maybe? But still equal hard to find.

Besides some The Smiths test presses, I got a nice signed record and a in-house promo tape.

Finally I found this anomaly pretty cool to have.

Curious what 2017 will bring me.

Dag day

I received this live LP a few days ago and it is right one time for Dag Nasty later today. I did see Dag Nasty a few months ago and it was so good I had to go again.

High expectations

I had some and Dag Nasty delivered. Both songs are amazing and on point. I need more of this. Really I do!

I was very excited when I made an deal on this. My Dag Nasty collection is pretty sweet, so adding a test press is always great. This is the test press for the 85-86 boxset, but I haven’t had the chance to compare them with the regular boxset to see if it is the regular or rejected set.

Tape and CDs…

Isn’t stuff I buy a lot, but when I see some very cheap ones, I can’t help my self.

Can I say…

…that I need more Dag Nasty records? I guess I do! I got hooked up with this later pressing of this classic. This one has a $8 PPD price on the back of the sleeve.

Year list 2015

To reflect back on the year, it was a great year for new and re-released music. My year list turned out to be pretty long.

Beach Slang LP
California 7″
Ceremony LP
Die 7″
Fade 7″
Flex 7″/tape/flexi
Give 12″
GLOSS demo
Into Another LP
Iron Boots discography LP
Iron Chic 7″
No Tolerance LP
Protester 7″
Run The Jewels 12″
Shipwrecked repress 7″
Spirits LP
Stick Together LP
Supercrush 7″
Superheaven LP
Sweet Jesus LP
Title Fight LP
True Identity demo
Turning Point discography LP
Turnstile LP
Union Of Faith demo
Violent Reaction LP
Youth Brigade demo 7″

When it comes to my favorite picks up, it was really hard to choose and make a list. Last month alone was so awesome. I also got quite a few awesome test presses including three Dag Nasty tests and two Fugazi tests. Also I picked up a few of my all time wants.

The one I really wanted the most was the GI single. This completes my early Dischord singles collection. Also I was very stoked about picking up this Lifetime 7″. You barely find this 7″, luckily that didn’t reflect in the price. Another regular record that I found highly anticipating was the expanded Turning Point discography. I even got luckily enough to get the test press. I also added the missing second press test press of the Turning Point discography from back in 2005.

The Seattle/Vancouver area always has been a great area for hardcore bands, two of my favorite bands are from there. So it was very cool to pick up this Champion and Keep It Clear test press. I managed to pick up not one but three Dag Nasty test this year, Wig Out At Denko’s being my favorite of the three for sure. The final two test presses I am still psyched about are this Fugazi EP and this Fugazi 7″, mostly because these are my first and second favorite Fugazi releases. Margin Walker, Repeater and Furniture being 3rd, 4th and 5th.

Also I want to mention all The Smiths and Morrissey records I’ve got, that turned into a very nice collection overnight due to a few good and big scores.

Collecting wise a great year, hopefully this year will be better.

End of the year haul 2

Besides the 7″s, I have also picked up some 12″s. The coolest one is this Dag Nasty test press for Trouble Is single. Apparently there are 4 or 6 copies out there, so it is rather rare. This marks my fifth Dag Nasty test and my third one this year. It also came with a glossy Dag Nasty promo picture.

I also picked up another test press, this is a test press for a new Minor Threat bootleg. I haven’t seen regular copies surfacing, but I did see several copies of this test press being sold online. It comes with a nicely done custom sleeve.

A repress I was stoked about was the Judge LP. It comes with a embossed sleeve also printed on the inside and an additional die cut insert and colored vinyl. Revelation records went all the way on this one.

Also I managed to add another Hyperview record to the pile, this time it is the tour version on grey vinyl with the sticker on the sleeve.


The final 12″ is this prank record by Run The Jewels called Meow The Jewels. It is basically their latest record with the  beats changed to cats sounds. Fun novelty record with a ton of inserts and a furry sleeve.

End of the year haul 1

During the xmas weekend, I received a package containing all the records and other stuff that I ordered and that was delivered at my NY address. So it really felt like xmas morning with all those presents. First a Dangerhouse single that has been high on my want list. I really dig this one. Nice fold over sleeve like most of the Dangerhouse singels.


Another one I was so stoked about to get is the Jawbreaker Busy 7″ with the It Hurts tour sleeve. Pretty hard to find.


My Dag Nasty collection is pretty sweet. Just when it comes to the All Ages department it is lacking a bit. So glad I am able to add a nice copy on blue vinyl.


Also on blue vinyl is this Reaching Forward single. I like it but the band members of Reaching Forward hate it.

The final 7″ is this California 7″. This came out for Black Friday and was ridiculous hard to find. I really wanted a copy since it has Adam from Jawbreaker on drums.


Also I got a Flexi. Probably the worst format ever. People complain about 10″s but Flexi’s are way worse. Still cool to hear new No Warning stuff but a 7″ would have been better.

Dag bootleg

I got this Dag Nasty bootleg from the same seller as the Bruce bootleg, strangely enough. This LP contains a live show record in Philly in 1987 and has a good mix of Can I Say and Wig Out songs, also some new Field Day era songs are present. Artwork wise it is pretty boring but the show easily makes up for it.
