Harder They Fall x 30

First post of the new year, and in some ways there's no real change here. Here's a new version of an old Integrity record that came out at the end of last year.

Integrity originally released the 'Harder They Fall' 3 song demo in 1989 on cassette. 22 years later, Organized Crime Records put it out as a flexi disc, and then another 8 years on and it has been put on vinyl again in honour of the 30th anniversary by Backbite Records.

The b-side contains the same 3 songs, but remixed by Psywarfare (which is Dwid's noise side project). I'm not a big fan of Psywarfare generally, but I find these songs really interesting.

This was a one off pressing of 500 copies on two colours of vinyl. Both colours come with something I have never seen before - super tiny labels. They look really cool... although maybe only because they're 'different'.

The limited version was clear vinyl, out of 100 copies.

The more common colour is pink which is out of 400 copies. At the time of writing this, there are still pink copies for sale in the label's store.

And of course, it wouldn't be an Integrity post on here without a test press. This one comes in a hand drawn sleeve, and I have to say that this is possibly my favourite of all the hand drawn sleeves that I have in my collection...

Those tiny labels made me laugh! Ha! How odd!
