the floorpunch record is a must for any collection that has been missing from mine for far to long :P

so first up we have the Youth crew 08 comp which is an amazing little comp so many bands on here that i love this particular version is the clear /250
the awqard thing is i already have this :S but none the less its amazing joe got this for me :D youth crew bands are my musical life mainly and he knew i would love it :)

now these i love :D these are star wars "chubbies" which in essence are russian dolls that depic the differnt stages in a characters development or age lol Joe got me the rebel pilots ! the helmet comes off and the visor retracts up :D each one has a magnet at its base and detachable feet/stands :) want to get more of these :P

late but WHO CARES!

long time coming this update but here we go
all the pressing info for these records is in the post below if you are interested because i am tired and this will be as quick as i can make it haha!

first off are these lovely Jealous records
sorry if pics are to big again im lazy so STFU! everything will be alot better organised and such in the next post :)
so the story of these records and infact most of the records in this thread is a long one! i orderd these months ago from the label doubleXcrossed they were cheap and i had meaning to pick them up for a while as the band play near me every now and then and i feel like helping them out. now after about a month of not recieving them i rememberd them and tried to contact the label .....NOTHING no matter what i do i cant get to them so i message the band and they try and nothing happens.. blah blah blah long story short the band being legends decide they will send me the records because they are fucking legends!

lots of pics for this one!
here we have the now notorious Kids Like Us/Mongoloids splits one Double or nothing records (not the new Ghetto Josh Records ones that no one can afford at the moment)
everyone who preorderd these in July was left in the dark about them for months upuntil a few weeks ago when the label revealed they were having problems with the printers! fair enough everyone thinks! DON say everything ships that week. 2 weeeks later everyone gets a shipping email from Districtlines the DON distributors! umm ok everyone thinks lil peeved but at least they are on the way. at last people get them and think WOAH THESE ARE PACKAGED REALLY CRAPPY! then they think WOAH HOLY SHIT ALL MY RECORD JACKET SLEEVES ARE STUCK TO EACH OTHER BECAUSE THE PRINTERS TOLD DON THAT IT WAS A COOL IDEA TO SCREEN THEM! holy shit now what basicly loads of E-BEEF on B9 etc and now DON are re printing sleeves and sending them ot for frees so everything is cool yeah?
NO! because i got slapped with a fucker of a customs charge with them teh spermy icing on the warm turd cake!
as you can see i was "lucky" and only my bundy and count were fucked up! oh well!

right whats next...

oh yeah my true colors! well i ahve no pics of these and the purchase was a flawless cash 4 records off B9 no complaints great band great records! GO NOW AND LISTEN TO TC!!!!

where crucial unicorns set it straight?

so this was pretty much the best haul of stuff i have got from one seller on ebay ever!

below are the 3 releases that set it straight have been on (to my knowledge!)
the highlight was getting the LP! not that these releases came out to long ago but they did without my knowledge and when i was on a long break from buying records

so when i got back into the swing of things these sat right near the top of my *to get* list ever since!

no idea the pressing info for the 7"s but isnt crucial unicorn the best name for a band ever


ok its not but it made me laugh!







i love this band so damn much that on monday i did this

Get The Post

Got a nice big package from Crucial Responce today whilst i was feeding my son his lunch!
Heres what it had:

Get The Most - Common Goals - Crucial Responce - green/300
Get The Most - Moment In Time - Crucial Responce - black /1220
Black/White college jacket
a lovely free black flag cloth patch!


Get The Most are a recent find for me but a fantastic one!
i had heard of there label crucial responce a few years back when i was on tour with my old band and one of there bands played onee of the shows i played
the band were one voice, i picked up a long sleeve and a 7" from them and to be fair pretty much forgot about them unfortunatly.

lovely fucking poster with this record! cover is printed on nice thick card as well!

now you are thinking whats the point of that charming little tour tale Alex, well humble reader i have a superb reason! a few weeks ago i was browsing the get the most myspace and listening to there mates and i stumbled upon one voice and crucial responce. so i added them both and thought nothing of it again. then last week they posted a bullitin advertising these fucking amazing jackets which i coulnt resist so i orderd one and picked up these 7" that i wanted!

such a lovely green on this record! marble has to be my favourite of all record styles!

My free patch will find a nice home for this .... not on my jacket!

new jacket/hoodie combo! soooo warm!!!


Finaly you know wheres wally! well lets play wheres Aram! answers ina comment or postcard!


technical difficulties

so dude to me thinking it would be a good idea to indulge my ocd and organise my photobucket a load of the images on this blog no longer work

cant say if or when they will be fixed so in teh mean time use your imagination

excuse the chins!!



got this from Double or nothing records

Hey Alex..... The KLU/Mongos Splits are finally ready to ship. We had
to have them repressed 3 times thanks to pressing plant errors. We're
getting the final, correct records at the end of this week and they
should begin shipping out starting on monday. You'll get a shipping
confirmation email once your package goes out.

As for the test presses, you cant buy one, but we are inserting a
couple into random preorder packages. good luck!

thanks for the patience. If you have any other questions, just hit me up!

- Pete

Also got my new shoes! :D

falling off the edge

so whilst i was at work today i was listening to the champion last show cd on my iphone and it got to the part when there singer started talking about straight edge and i realised just how right he was.
his speech was basicly about how edge was a LIFEstyle choice and not just a teenage rebellion, and how when these kids break edge they dont just go and have the occasional smoke or teh occasional drink with dinner they go and smoke 40 a day or become drinkers and it got me thinking about frends of mine who broke edge. in no way am i putting my friends down i love them and i respect there choices in life, however it seems that since they broke edge they have become drinkers somewhat and smokers as well! before they became edge i never remember them drinking as much as they seem to do now and its got me worried that they may start needing the stuff to have fun when i know they dont because when they were edge we used to have lots of fun! im also not saying that they never used to drink alot becaue i know they did but only at birthdays and festivals and such not every week.

straight edeg to me is a very big part of my life, im very proud to be edge, i have never drunk but i used to smoke quite heavily so when i quit i had a huge sence of satisfaction and that continues to this day. im not telling every one to go edge because its not for everyone its simply hard for me to understand why people claim then break a year or so later, i claimed when i was a lil older than 16 so i may have been young and " unable to drink anyway" (bollocks if i wanted to drink do drugs or smoke it would have been to easy and i could have donw it daily if i wanted) i have stuck to it! i didnt turn 18 and think " wahey lets go get hammerd lols" im 20 now and in june next year i would have made it past the legendary 21 mark and i plan to keep on going!

Since Alfie was born i havnt been able to hangout as much as i used to and that on top of almost everyone going to uni menas that when i do see my friends it means alot to me and i try to enjoty it as much as i can. im hoping that we dont grow apart and we stay frends but at the moment i am doubtful! i think its part of life that people grow appart, i just didnt think it would happen so soon. i need to make more of an effort to see the friends close to me and try my best to stay in contact with those who have moved away.

rant over sorry if iv offended anyone i didnt mean to v probably missed out stuff but i cant be arsed to look back over this
will add to later if i feel the need!

Mental & Dirty

sooooo! today was a pretty damn good mailday!
as you can see i got 2 recs and a cd but not pictured are the bits of merch that arrived as well
got a signs of hope tshirt baseball shirt and hoodie for half price in there 5 year sald so that plus out strong pound means i paid about £20 for all 3 with postage!! woooooo
as a bonus they threw in the CD pictured (61/100) it was this i was most pleased about out of everything i got today :D
i have signs of hope's full length ( have for a while ..infact i have a almost complete record collection)
however this cd hasnt been pressed yet (SOH get on it !!!) so im dead chuffed to have the tracks :D since i refuse to buy cds anymore

also pictured are the records that i got in replacement for the first step record i recieved broken
dead chuffed with theses as well!
first up is:
Mental - Demo 2 - six feet under - blue/red swirl /358?
the question mark is there because
it says that its red and blue on the sleeve however there is no red and blue listed on the SFU website hmm which leads me to believe that it is the blue and purple
dose it look purple to you?

under that is the new Dirty money split on yellow :) this is out of 320 and looks very nice cant wait to hear it

peace out!

the first break

BOO so i made an order form Dead and gone about a month ago and it never arrived so i emailed ian at D&G and he resent my order arrived really quickly and i couldnt be happier!!! :D

that was until ei opened and checked the last record in the package .. my first step LP

as you can see it looks like my postie got the munchies and took a huge bite from it haha
now ian is out of stock :<
however this record has a silver lining and ian said that he would send me eithe r2 7" or a lp as a replacement
so being a tit i somehow convinced myself that he brought out the outbreak euro press of you make us sick and asked him for a test press
that was burial records not D&G of coarse this leaves me feeling like a tit!
so i remmeber what i was supposed to ask him for (betrayed Addiction euro press test press)
but he hasnt got that either :<
oh well i now have the mental demo 2 7" and the new dirty money split coming my way :)
