Tapes are starting to take over this blog

Saw Mindset and Force Fed the other night. Force Fed is a great straight edge band from PA. They just put out a 7". They're playing This Is Hardcore this year. This is the demo tape with the red cover, not really sure how rare this is.

eBay score

So I won three copies of the Effort's Wear Your Heart 7" from Zak Ruvalcaba of Words of War Records on eBay. All three copies are from the 2nd press, The Orange Newsletter Edition limited to 50, the White/Black Mix limited to 19 and Lavender limited to 104.

After winning the lot I asked Zak if he could also send me the two copies from the 3rd press. One with the regular cover, and one with the special cover.

This completes my collection of the 2nd press, all I'm missing is most of the 1st press. It's a never-ending process. I have two copies of Lavender, if you're interested to buy or trade let me know.

Victory's Non-Victorious Vinyl

So I read on Between the Buried and Me's myspace blog that Victory had released Alaska on vinyl. I thought to myself, finally. So I quickly went over to the Victory site to see what they had to offer, like any other record collector does. So I saw that Victory had the classic album in White with a limited pressing of 200. I knew that if I didn't get a copy while I had the chance, I'd kick myself, so I placed an order. While at the Victory webstore I also realized that maybe I should pick up another copy of the latest Comeback Kid record that I do not have. So I looked again for the rarest and found the Black and Copper almost swirl like vinyl, which is also limited with only 212 copies. So all in all not a bad pick-up. I wish Victory as a label didn't suck, that would make me feel better about purchasing vinyl from them. On top of all that the packaging for the records just leaves so much to be desired. I mean like the covers are just pathetic and there's nothing special about any of the packaging. I guess I should expect it however.

Cleavland Youth

I got this last week on the band's tour with Mad Minds. This seems to be the tape release cover from back in January, #18/25. Overload is a promising youth crew band from Cleavland starting to make some noise. Released on I Drink Milk.
