Patience

It seems that Doug is finally starting to learn to be patient in order to save money. Me, I've known that shit for years and am a master. Here's an example that showed up in the mail today. The Alert 'Demo 08' 7" with an Up Front rip off cover.

I can barely believe it, but Mike posted about this record one week shy of four years ago. Wow. At the time I immediately liked the look of the Up Front rip off cover and decided I wanted one. Well, after watching a few on eBay and never really wanting to pay whatever it was going for, my time finally came around. A couple of weeks ago one appeared on eBay UK. All it took was one bid, and then £0.99 (plus postage) later, it was mine. Let that be a lesson to you all.

Nicely done. Great score for a great looking cover.

Many of that 2000 to 2013 stuff severely drops in price a while after it's released. Then the 'hype' is over...

I actually pre-ordered this record from the label but as it goes more and more these days, it never arrived. Getting ripped off by small labels seems to be my M.O. these days. The latest were Upside Down Records and Back 2 Back. Damn.
Nice score my man.
