So when I had the Turnstile LP shipped to my friend who was coming to visit, I also took the opportunity to have a fresh eBay win shipped there too. I mean, the only thing better than someone coming to visit and bringing you a record would be someone coming to visit and bringing you TWO records, right?

I won this on eBay about two weeks ago. A test press of the Set To Explode 7" that was released by Grave Mistake Records back in 2005. Sadly it was the only record that the band released, but what a corker it is. I had a couple of chances to pick up a test press over the past ten years, but they were always going for $100 or more, which I considered to be too much. So only twelve years later or so, I managed to pick one up for almost half price.

this one comes in a photocopied sleeve, which is kind of a tribute to the classic S.O.A. 7". As you can see, this is hand numbered out of 24 copies.

If I had more time I might have taken an updated collection photo, but I've been really struggling for light these days so it'll have to wait for another time.
