FP D1C White

I never saw Floorpunch play back in the 90s. I live in the wrong part of the world is my main excuse. But back when they played their final show, in 1999, I was 'friends' with some dude in the States who went to the show. When I say 'friends', we had traded records a few times on the Rev trade board, and we were trying to help each other out where we could. So this dude went to the final Floorpunch show and said he would try to pick me up a record. Unfortunately, he wasn't successful. I still remember his email the day after, telling me how much of a fight it was to get to the merch table.

Fifteen years later, I finally managed to get one. I've had several chances to scoop one in the past, but each time it seemed that there was someone willing to pay more.

In celebration of picking this one up, I got my other colour copies out for a photo:

Funnily enough, I consider myself to have a pretty weak Floorpunch collection. I don't have the NJ/DC press, which is actually the rarest version of this 7" there is. I also don't have the regular black vinyl or the black vinyl in the sleeve with green letters. I feel tempted to start looking for them now.

I'm so glad you posted these pics. I just bought a red one and I'm waiting for it in the mail. I'm totally psyched!

I own none of these. Great collection, Marcus!

Excellent collection pic. I only ever had a black copy of this 7". I did have the demo tape and the Twin Killing LP on clear, though--but I always wanted a color copy of this vinyl. I saw them play a couple times, and still was never lucky enough to get anything extra special.

Which collector doesn't get happy seeing this picture...?
