Envy/Thursday split LP

I finished the Charm City Suicides post and noticed the pre-order for the Envy/Thursday split had been announced.

Someone be a pal and order me one...










I'll be your best friend...













I'll trade you cool comic book statues...












I got these cheeseburgers, man...









...c'mon, baby, don't make me beg.

TRL did the same thing with the new Grails... buy the two versions (cover art and different coloured vinyl) together, with a free CD. except the arts for this split seem almost identical...

I don't want to get hypocritical, because I love coloured vinyl and buy lps for the artwork, but the special deal (which is just twice the price, of course, plus the CD) of identical versions smacks of some very bizarre consumerism to me. like the guy who has every single colour of every HWM record.

anyway, Envy/Jesu is where it's at... though I don't think that's coming out on vinyl for a while yet. I'm going to wait and see how good the Envy side of this is (and, theoretically, the Thursday side as well) before deciding whether I really want one. one one.

GGH, I think I meant to post the regular edition of this, as opposed to the "supa-limited, 5 colors of vinyl & three different screens of the same image for 1000 spacebux" version. That ALWAYS pissed me off when my rent money went towards records, and it especially pisses me off now when I have to spend my pay on important stuff. I haven't picked up the Envy/Jesu yet, though your posts a couple of months back have had me intrigued. Although present for Thursday at a few of their early, Eyeball Records-era shows (including a scorcher with Kid Dynamite & Crispus Attucks at the Wilson Center in DC), I've just never really taken to them. Gotta say, though, Geoff Rickey sounds like the kinda cat I'd get along with.

I reckoned that might have been referring to, but I decided to go ahead with the mini-rant anyway. The link went to the specials page, the regualr release has its own page.

I've never really been exposed to Thursday, so I'll keep an open mind. If Envy like them then that's a good endorsement, at least. But since I've already put in my pre-order for Grails I won't be rushing in to spend more money on this just yet.

So I'm dating this girl. She's a riot grrl in 1997, so that should tell you something right off the bat. Or maybe not. But she & I get along swimmingly. We both live about 15 minutes from the Pennsylvania border in Maryland. We have a lot to do, but we spend most of our time making mix tapes for each other, hoping on the hood of my Grand Prix and shouting "Anarchy" and going to DC for shows. After all, the Ottobar was newly open, Memory Lane was a distant memory and the only thing Fletcher's was good for was the occasional H2O show.

She & I drive into DC to see Sleater-Kinney for the first time. We trek down to the old Black Cat, me terrified someone is going to break into the Grand Prix. It's probably the month Dig Me Out comes out, so we are fucking down for the show. I think Versus opened. Wow, they…

Uniform Choice - Screaming For Change

Happy July 2nd, readers. Welcome to post #66. I'm in a bitchin' mood. I have a 3 day weekend, my main man Batts is rolling in for steaks and booze tomorrow, and I found the first4Ramonesrecords at the Borders near work for a mere $5.99 a piece. Life is swell.

I'm a big fan of finding decent records on the cheap. I had no clue who Uniform Choice was when I bought the cassette of Screaming For Change in 1993 for $1. All I knew was there were X'ed dudes on the cover screaming into a mic. Pretty hardcore, eh? It wasn't until I bought the vinyl years later that I noticed the cover was a painting, not a photograph. I guess I wasn't very observant when I was 16. Anyway, this always struck a chord for me, unlike peers like Youth of Today, Bold & Slapshot. I still love jamming "Don't Quit" after a bad day. 26 minutes and 32 seconds of solid, 2nd wave hardcore. Dig on it.

hose.got.cable - Majesty

I've been working through the first hour of Star Trek, having called off "Dinner and a Movie", and, instead, just fixed pancakes, eggs and milk.  I have all the epicurean taste of a 12-year-old.  As great as this looks in 1080p, I'm just having a hard time staying awake.  Maybe I shouldn't have seen this four times this summer.  I'm a geek.

hose.got.cable was a bargain-bin discovery for me.  If memory serves, I scored this for $2 from Reptilian on a Sunday when I should have been home, painting a wall or fixing a toilet or doing whatever a typical husband and homeowner does.  But, like I said, I'm a geek.  I like record stores, book giveaways and staying faithful to the people I love.

Back to h.g.c: they were from Richmond and recorded for Old Glory Records. Old Glory was one of those labels like Vermiform, Vermin Scum, and Gravity that was amazingly great in the early 90's and then fell off the map by 2000.  Members of hose.got.cable went on to Rah Bra…
