A Bunch Of 7"s

I got a list from someone recently of stuff they were selling. There were literally hundreds of records on the list, and a few very rare or expensive items. But I mainly went after stuff that I was missing that was pretty cheap. In some ways, it was a good way to save some postage by picking up a bunch of things at the same time. So in the spirit of the older days of this blog, I figured I would present the entire haul in one go, rather than break it into separate posts. So here we go, in alphabetical order...

It's always good to start with an 'A' band. So here's an Amendment 18 (or A18) 7". 'Every Knife Has A Home' was their third 7", and this is a tour version that comes in a cool Antidote rip off sleeve:

Next, the Damage Control 'Can't keep us Down 7" on Crucial Response Records. This came out in 2002. I have about 4 copies of their full length, but literally never got around to picking up the 7" until now. This is the limited white vinyl pressing, out of 200 copies.

I also picked up this 'Raw Data Series' cover version of the same Damage Control 7". This one was out of 96 copies.

And the Damage Control 7" again, this time in a limited Camo cover. This one I like a lot. There were only 35 copies of this one made.

Next is a much more recent release. The Fall Silent 'Cart Return' 7" came out on Revelation last year. I used to like this band back in the day, so I was interested to see how this latest release sounds. Pretty similar to how they used to sound it would seem. Anyway, I picked this up on both colours - gold and red with black.

Next is the Insist 'Demo' 7". I saw this band last year and was really impressed. Their 7" on React! was a pretty good slab of straight edge hardcore, so it was good to grab this white copy of their debut recording.

And another recent(ish) release. Primal Rite have been making waves of late, and it seems that a lot of people are into what they are doing. 'Complex Life of Passion' is their first 7" which was put out by Grave Mistake records. This is the limited purple vinyl pressing, although you probably can't tell from these photos.

The second Primal Rite 7" came out on Revelation last year. Entitled 'Sensory Link To Pain', this one turns things up a notch from the previous 7".If you don't know what this band sounds like... well, you can probably figure that out from the cover art.

Next up is an older release. Remission 'Winds Of Promise' came out on React! around the time that I stopped buying everything the label put out due to a couple of questionable releases. I remember downloading this one on someone's recommendation and enjoying it, but the limited color pressings sold out pretty quick. So only about 8 years after it came out, I finally picked on up.

And finally, two copies of the Sportswear 'It Runs Deep' 7". The limited yellow vinyl copy, out of 220 copies.

And also this copy with the limited Nike cover:
