Rock n Roll Adventure Kids – s/t 7″

I doubt many people will recognize this. My buddy threw this in with a record I got from him in the mail recently. I thought it was kinda funny. I haven’t listened to the record but if I remember correctly this band featured Amy Pecis, a friend of ours from Redding although I think this was a band she was in from Berkeley. I looked them up online and it looks like a bunch of dipshit hipster idiots. Awful music. Could still be the same band. They must have released this as a cassette first because the only insert is what looks like a cassette insert.

His Hero is Gone – The Dead of Night in Eight Movements

Again, this is one of the records I picked up from my friend recently. This is the first pressing of this record on Prank. 1st pressing, red marbled vinyl, limited to 500. I think this was the first HHIG material I had ever heard around the time it came out. Saw them a couple times in the late 90’s. Those were some of the best shows I think I have ever seen. I really like this record. They still had that grizzly ass second guitar player in this lineup as you can see on the yellow insert. I believe later presses had a different color insert with the band address removed.

Statue – Something to Say 7″

Also got this in the package from my friend. Was never a huge fan of this record but I had the chance to pick it up as an extra freebie so I took it. I liked their record on Revelation much more. I have no idea how many of these were pressed but I believe it was pressed once on white vinyl with no other colors or variations. I have a feeling there were quite a few because this had never been hard to come by. Still a decent record.

Ink & Dagger – Drive this seven inch wooden stake through my Philadelphia heart 7″

Ink & Dagger was at one time my favorite and most collected band. I didn’t have every version of every vinyl release but very close to it, even down to the vampire killer box set that was limited to 5. That was my favorite piece I had ever had in my collection but I was much younger and fell on hard times, having to sell it along with most of the other Ink & Dagger vinyl. I got to a point where I wasn’t as interested in collecting vinyl anymore, so now when I see the records I used to have, its a bit heartbreaking. This is the reasons I’m posting records here so I can at least look back and remember where and how I got them. Anyhow, this is the red vinyl version of my favorite Ink & Dagger record, limited to 500 copies on initial records. I fell in love with this band because of this record. To this day, it might still be visually, my favorite punk/hardcore record (at least of its era).

American Nightmare – Background Music 12″ Blood Red

I had this on clear vinyl years ago around the time when it first came out but I must have traded it away. Picked up this copy from my friend, again, in the big package he sent me last week. This is the “blood red” version, limited to 200 copies. I keep seeing people saying 200 and 300 but I think it’s 200. I don’t really like dark vinyl colors and this is one of those. Its fitting for this release but I’d rather see something opaque and brighter. This one is also up for trade or sale. Get in touch.

American Nightmare – s/t 7″ Summer 2000 Press

Another score from my buddy who sent the big package. This is the Summer 2000 Tour Press on blue vinyl, #180/300. I used to have a couple other copies of this record but got rid of them quite a while back. I believe the red and white vinyl versions. I still think this is a great record. I remember thinking the packaging was the coolest when it came out. Up for trade or sale since again, I know there are some big AN vinyl fans out there and I have other records on my list that I would rather have.

American Nightmare – The Sun Isn’t Getting Any Brighter 7″ Euro Tour Press

Picked this up in the big package i got from my friend last week. I don’t really listen to this band anymore but I’m always reminded of how good they were whenever I hear them. This is the purple vinyl European tour pressing, limited to 600 copies. I was always kind of dissapointed with how boring the packaging and layout was on this record after their first 7″. This is up for trade or sale, along with the next 2 AN records I’ll be posting, if anyone is interested. I’d like to keep them but there are other records I’m more interested in.

Integrity – Evacuate 7″ Flexi & Kingdom of Heaven 7″

I’m not sure how I feel about the flex. At first I was into them but now it seems like more and more are being made and being sold for just as much as a regular 7″. This is Integrity covering “Evacuate”, originally by Negative Approach. This track was recorded 20 years ago and is finally being released. Regardless of being a flexi, I still think its pretty rad. Great Negative Approach theme to the packaging too. Limited to 200 with a red and black version limited to 50 available only at the A389 Bash this year.

Along with the flexi, A389 also released the “Kingdom of Heaven” 7″. This was also recorded 20 years ago and is just now being released. The white vinyl is limited to 150 copies I believe, but I’m not sure about the black vinyl. There is also a red vinyl version limited to 50 which I didn’t end up getting. If you have one you are willing to trade, let me know.

I grabbed all three of these from A389 the day they went up for sale. The flexi and the white vinyl version of the 7″ are sold out but you can still get the black vinyl from A389 and a few other places.

A389 is sharing one of the songs from the 7″. You can listen to it here:

Inside Out – No Spiritual Surrender 7″, Quicksand – s/t 7″

Picked up both of these in the big package I got from my friend. Haven’t owned or listened to either of these in ages but lately I’ve had an interest in some of the earlier Revelation vinyl and cassettes. This is the white vinyl, 2nd and final pressing of this record. Quicksand self titled, sometimes called “Omission” is the first pressing on white vinyl out of 1000. I included a close up photo of a brown streak in the vinyl since I know there are some serious rev collector nerds who might be interested in that. The photo doesn’t really show it that well. If you have any earlier revelation vinyl or cassettes you are willing to part with, let me know.

His Hero Is Gone – Fifteen Counts Of Arson 12″ Test Press

Worked out a deal with an old friend the other day and got the package in the mail today. I’m really happy with these records. First up is my favorite of all the records in the package. This is a test pressing of the first His Hero Is Gone LP on Prank Records. My favorite of all the material they released. There were about 25 tests from Alberti and 10 tests from Rainbow. I’m not sure which this is but please let me know if you are wiser. It also came with 2 extra versions of the poster they pasted to the sleeve in different colors.
