State of alert and more

I love it, when I buy a single record and receive three in the mail. Always good to try something new.

Can’t tell anything about those other bands. But State Of Alert is pretty well know.

Scream

This full length is often overlooked when it comes to Dischord records and their legacy. But I believe this was the first full length Dischord ever released, it even predates Out Of Step.

Listen to the first song (Came Without a Warning) and try to tell me this isn’t something you like. You simply can’t.

Back in 2009 when Dischord started to repress some of the older stuff, they did do a few colored pressings including a pressing on white vinyl of this one. I picked it up at the time. Picked up a nice looking first press and a test press later on too, since this record is so good.

Only recently it came to my attention, they actually did two pressings on white vinyl, one with yellow labels and one with brown labels. I already owned the yellow label, so the hunt was on. It took me a while but when I found a decent priced local copy, I snapped it up.

Out of step

I received my American mail today. The thing that I first unpacked was this Minor Threat LP, so I might as well post it first. Recent repress nothing really to fuzz about. Only thing is that Brian Baker signed it. I am a sucker for these kind of things. I am sorry.

Live

The store owner who sold me the Ramones LP was kind enough to throw in this Government Issue record for free. This might be my first Mystic records release I got in over a decade.

Double O/Red C

Two great demos have been put on vinyl for the first time. Obviously this is a bootleg, just like the Minor Threat live LP, I posted a few days ago. From the same bootlegger there is also a Bad Brains bootleg called Lost Tracks. Should track down that one too.

Live in Washington

A new Minor Threat live LP arrived today. Obviously this is a bootleg, but still it is good. Funny to see old newspaper clippings I dug up a half year ago, ending up on a insert on a bootleg. It even came with a bootleg Minor Threat sticker.

Red Hare

Red Hare delivers again, after a great LP and an equal amazing 7″, they return with a new full length that outshines their previous output. Definitely a contender for my year list.

Punk

Two excellent punk LPs arrived today. Don’t think they need some kind of introduction.

Didn’t have that Minor Threat pressing yet and it nice to replace my 20 year old cd copy for the LP version of that Pennywise record. Think this is my favorite Pennywise record, mostly because it is a lot darker, heavier and personal compared to the other records.

Jawbox

I discovered Jawbox thank to the split with Jawbreaker, which is kind of weird since I knew the name due to being a huge fan of Dischord records. But someone I never got around seriously check out Jawbox until I got that split with Jawbreaker. After checking out the full lengths I learned it was another great band from the DC area. Good songs, great lyrics and an amazing singer. When I had to chance to pick up this test press/promo, I couldn’t say no.

Scream

I am super stoked on adding this to the collection. Finding early Dischord test presses as promo are pretty rare. This are mostly send out to local radio stations on the east coast and aren’t as easy to find as the mid or late eighties promos, which are send out all over Western Europe and the USA. My copy came with glued on labels and custom sleeve by the radio station.

For those of you, who haven’t hear Scream before, this LP is their early work and is straight up hardcore punk. Great and powerful stuff.
