Adolescents – Welcome to Reality mixed color vinyl

Way back in the 1980s I got an Adolescents 7″ in a record trade from a good friend of mine. This single was called Welcome to Reality and it quickly became one of my favorite singles at the time and is a record that still gets played regularly whenever I’m listening to old punk records [...]

Suicidal Tendencies LP smoke colored vinyl

Much like the changing of wardrobes from winter to summer clothes, the Suicidal Tendencies LP (I’m talking about the only Suicidal Tendencies LP that matters, the first one) went and got itself all dolled up for the summer time.

Motörhead first LP vinyl reissue

In 1983 Chiswick Records (who had the good taste to sign The Damned after they left Stiff) released the first Motörhead LP and a metal/rock and roll institution was born that still lives on today. Motörhead is one of the longest running metal bands in history and they were certainly one of the more influential [...]

Adolescents LP turquoise vinyl

Spring means spring cleaning and there was some cleaning going on over at the pressing plant. They cleaned out the plates of the old color of the first Adolescents LP on Frontier Records and they poured in a brand new color just in time for Easter. Much like the Circle Jerks LP I wrote about [...]
