Don't Quit

In June last year I picked up via a trade a second colour repress variant of the Uniform Choice 'Screaming For Change' LP. At the end of the post I wrote:

It was only about three years ago that I didn't own a single copy of this LP other than a second press on black. Now, including the recent reissues, I somehow have six colour copies

Well, thanks to some more reissues, the six has now risen to eight. I'm not sure why there are more copies of this thing now available, or who is pressing them (I mean, Wishingwell Records doesn't really exist anymore, right?) but someone out there has clearly decided that the world needs more coloured vinyl copies of 'Screaming For Change'. And if they're making 'em, I'm buying 'em.

This time around there were three new colours of vinyl... although at the moment I have only received two of these. One is on white and one is on blue.

Not sure why, but both copies have completely different stickers on the front. Suff like this fascinates me. I mean, I can understand wanting to know which ones are which colours, but I'd expect that both have the non-specific 'color vinyl' sticker, and then they each have additional stickers on to denote whether they are white or blue copies. But to label them as 'white' and 'color vinyl' seems a bit dumb to me.

These appeared out of nowhere and seemed to sell out quite quickly, and then a gold vinyl copy appeared. I have one on order so in theory my eight colour copies will at some point become nine.

I didn't know that there was a gold one available as well. As a side note, the stickers on my white and blue copies were different than yours.

A while back I wanted to get a green vinyl repress (the most recent one). Since they are easy to come by, I decided to thoroughly shop around on eBay and found the best priced on being sold by Cargo music. Cargo/Head Hunter is the distro/label for a lot of punk labels and such and released the repress of the UC demo 2x7" (the original was on Nemesis). Well the shipping charge on my order got screwed up somehow so I received a phone call from a really nice lady informing me of the error. She also asked if I was looking for any other UC vinyl and went on to explain that they now owned Wishing Well records. Unless I misunderstood, as I have no clue how any of this works, I guess they own the rights to this record. They can repress it on a rainbow of colors forever. Also, she was no help when I asked her about a pink copy like yours Marcus...

that sticker on the blue copy looks like the ones that are usually on a389 colour records. probably related?

Interesting story! The sticker has got nothing to do with the labels

I still have to track these down as they sold out really quickly. Apparently only 100 of each were made but I have still yet to find any documentation of this.
