What I am about to say should be taken with a grain of salt and is not intended to insult or disparage anyone in particular or personally. The sentiment is more a reflection on my neurotic need to collect everything associated with a band or label to feel "whole" or "complete". I guess I have such little control in all the other aspects of my life that I use this forum to give myself a sense of purpose and peace. I have issues, obviously. With that said;
You fucking Euros and your fucking represses!
Somehow, some way, a Euro label called Quality Control HQ was able to get all parties on board, band and labels, to repress the first two No Tolerance 7"s onto a 12" in celebration of the No Tolerance European tour back in the fall. So in addition to the seven or eight 7"s I have with these songs, now there are a couple more 12"s to add. Great.
These versions were sold at shows and I heard sold out pretty damn quick - which is to be expected.
There were a total of 500 pressed with only 100 on this awesome looking green.
The record also comes with a large, two sided, black and white foldout lyric sheet/credits page.
Now I just have to track down the black vinyl which won't be an easy task. The Quality Control HQ website says they are all sold out, even though I never knew they were ever made available to the general public! If anyone has a line on where a neurotic brother from Canada can score one, it would be appreciated!
Welcome to my blog on collecting hardcore and punk rock vinyl. By no means do I claim to have the biggest, best or most complete collection.
I just love collecting hardcore/punk records and have since I was a teenager. I now have a wife and two kids, a mortgage, car payments and a downtown suit and tie guy job. Still, when I can I try to keep up with the hardcore scene, the bands and labels that keep me feeling young when everything else in this world tells me I am not! I will try to post every few days and hopefully like minded people can have fun with the posts and with your participation, start some discussions. Thanks for looking and tell all your friends!
