POP PUNK R00LZ
Title Fight - Kingston - clear /495
Such Gold - Stand Tall - white/ green split /250
Big hole 7"s piss me off. I don't have an adapter so I have to try to line it up by eye and it's fairly hit or miss. Turns out they're something like 0.09p cheaper to make but that doesn't cut it for me. Give me convience or give me death.
So both of these bands have rapidly grown in my own personal tastes as two of the top pop punk bands I listen to, and in the outside world they've both taken off (albeit Title Fight 10x more than SG). The Kingston 7" is fantastic, and has some of my favourite tracks off The Last Thing You Forget 'best of so far' type thing Title Fight released last year. This is the 2nd pressing and I've noticed that a lot of people seem to be shelling out a fair amount of money for their records, so who knows, once this has sold out it could be worth a tidy sum. I have a soft spot for clear vinyl (the next record I'm releasing shall be on clear) and apparantly the sound quality is slightly better on clear so that's a bonus.
Stand Tall by Such Gold is SUCH a great EP! Listened to it over and over again, never gets boring and is just fun. And this particular variation looks cool as shit. The 'seaweed green' side is slightly see through which is awesome. I wish I worked at a vinyl manufacturing site, I'd literallyt have a hard on from pressing records that look as cool as this.
I also got a Touché Amoré demo tape in the post, stoked to have that to add to the collection. Coming along nicely!
