Self Destruct Test II

Self Destruct were a UK band active circa 2006-8 or so. They featured Mike who now drums for Rot In Hell and some other dudes too. I remember when Set To Explode came over, and Dave Byrd posted on the internet somewhere that the best band in the UK, or possibly Europe, was Self Destruct. I think I saw them play about three times. No idea when or why they split though. Anyway, I spotted a test press of the second of their two 7"s on eBay recently. It was one of those moments where I knew that I would win it as soon as I saw it. I think I won this for £2.99, which I'm pretty happy with. It doesn't have a special sleeve or anything, which I am slightly disappointed with, but you can't have everything.

Rather than leave it there, I took a couple of photos of the test with the sleeve.

This marks my 16th test press of 2013 so far, which averages more than one a week. I wonder if I'll keep it going and make 52 for the year?

Sounds like a fun if not dangerous challenge

I have this with a sweet adolescents rip off sleeve. Cost more £2.99 though.
