Consolation Prize

It wasn't long ago that Dischord started repressing some of their classic records on coloured wax. Or so I thought. It was actuaslly five years ago now. Even though most people are starting to get frustrated & bored by Revelation's endless represses, the Dischord color vinyl pressings somehow seem less offensive... probably because they are less frequent. Here's my latest one - a great looking purple vinyl pressing of Jawbox's 'Grippe' LP.

I really like this purple. It's seems to be both solid and clear at the same time. A really interesting colour. Although, having said that, it's not quite the right shade of purple to go with the cover. Seems a shame to try to match the colour to the artwork but then get it wrong. Ah well, it's the thought that counts I guess!

I love this Jawbox album, but I really don't have any interest in collecting multiple copies of it...he said, before seeing this picture of the purple colored vinyl.

I wouldn't mind pick up the Dag Nasty colour represses at some point, particular Wig Out at Denko's :)
