The world still won’t listen

I love those Smiths promo’s white labels. I found a cheap ones this last few weeks and this is the first one to pop up. It has a few marks and it can use a good cleaning, but for that price I paid for it, beggars can’t be choosers. Pretty cool it has a regular sleeve. Most of those promo’s just came in a black DJ  sleeve or dust jacket.

Deeper Shades Of Soul

I am not going to explain who the Urban Dance Squad and why there music has been influential for a lot of other artist and that are Dutch, played on the Jay Leno show but never made it super big, for which they are entitled to, imho of course.

What most interesting about this test press/promo is, that it came from an Australian radio station. You can even see the times it was played on the radio. How ever I can find any information on a regular Australian release of this single.

3 songs

Another cool test press by the almighty Fugazi. I love this 7″ and I was super stoked finding one with the promo sleeve. Either 50 or 100 copies are made.

Cutting Through

One of my favorite demos of last year got an vinyl release. Obviously I had to order it and I went all the way. Black vinyl, colored vinyl and a test press.

Test presses

I scored two great test presses last week. First is the debut LP by the Dutch punk band NRA. No special sleeve or anything.

Also I got the test press of the debut EP by Mission Of Burma. Some great songs are on this 12″. This is the test press of the reissue.

More test press medicine

Another day, another test press. And what a test press! This the Fugazi Red Medicine LP released by Dischord. It comes with a promo sheet. So this has been used as a promo item. But compared to other Fugazi test presses, it doesn’t shows up that much. Also the other test presses that I have are the S/T, Margin Walker, Repeater and 3 Songs tests, however I never seen a Steady Diet Of Nothing or In On The Killer Taker test before.

The boy with the test press

I found this test press/promo of the Smiths on Discogs the other day for a very decent price. Nothing much to look at, but still hard to find and nice to have. It could use some cleaning tho, it has accumulated 30 years worth of dust.

Test press in a coma

Another Smiths promo/test press, I had to add to my collection, since the price was great. I love it comes with the regular artwork. Only a different inner sleeve.

More test press

I also added this Crucial Response test of the Sex Drive LP. Great band with ex-members of Downslide, Justice, Mainstrike and Reaching Forward.

Downslide/Know Your Enemy

This definitely is the most boring pick up of the year, but still this has been on my want list since 2004. Downslide and Know Your Enemy were among my favorite local bands around 2002/2005. Saw them both quite a few times. Picked up most of the records but I kept on missing out on this test press.
