This Week in Hardcore - Ebay

Let's see what the Wild World Of Ebay has to offer us today. Some gems, I'm sure.

Let's see what the Wild World Of Ebay has to offer us today. Some gems, I'm sure.



First Up: What Feeds The Fire - Set Me Free test press. Yeap, a genuine test press. Check that red foil. Hot. This album came with about 400 different sleeve variations, but this one is likely the coolest.



Next: A piece of Bridge9 Records history, the Tenfold / Sum Of All Fears split EP. That's Bridge9 #001 for those keeping track. Dope. Back when Chris was mailordering out of his house in CT.



Finally: The Legendary Judge Chung King. This was up last week, but was pulled "for issues." Now it's back. Let's see if it can outdistance Sammy's Chung King. No idea who owns #77. Rev doesn't list the owner.



And in case you were sleeping, here is how a few New York Hardcore Together Comps ended.


Black vinyl: $113




Orange vinyl w/ Liberty (??) Stamp: $201 (reserve not met)




Orange vinyl w/ Bat Stamp: $305

Stay tuned for next weeks. We can talk about crucial shirts.

Make Or Break, hailing from Florida, have decided to hang up their boots. It's a shame really, as this band was pretty killer. They will definitely be missed.

If you read the blog, you'll know that a few weeks back, I was interviewed for Decibel Magazine. The interview was pretty chill.

Part 1 is featured in the May issue. I get name checked as the "Founder of How's Your Edge?com." Not 100% accurate unfortunately. Jim C and Casali should both get credit. Actually, Jim C should get all the credit. Back then, I think I was just the web monkey. Haha, I'm sure Casali doesn't care. Jim C will more than likely send a sarcastic myspace comment. HAHAH.

Pick up the May issue now. Or read all the juicy details online, Fallen Warriors of sXe.

If you weren't one of the 1000 people at Champion's sold out last show May 27, 2007 in Seattle. After spending seven years touring the world with Sick of It All, Comeback Kid, Terror, 7 Seconds, Slapshot, and many more-Champion embodied everything that is great about straight edge hardcore. This DVD is the ultimate hardcore video with a 6-camera angle video shot by High Roller Studios catching every sing along and stage dive from the middle of it all, along with a 24 track mixed and mastered audio CD.


Get your pre order in before they are all gone. Support B9. Support Champion.

With these, the last release "Something Started Here". Get Outta Town Records is putting out a limited to 1250 copies, five 7" box set spanning the entire career of the band.

Guns Up Outlive Test Press on Ebay ...

A friend of mine is selling his Guns Up Outlive test press on Ebay. #16/20. Support Mullet. Without him, xmulletx.com and the mullet board, I would probably have a better work ethic now. But thanks to hours spent effing around on that board in the late 90s, early 2ks, I now have no work stamina. Thanks dude.





You can bid here.

Soul Control - Merch and EP Preorder ...

Soul Control is this little band from Providence/RIX. Every dude in the band is a [Matt]DUDE. The music is top notch and the vibe is chill. They recently were picked up by this other little label called Rivalry Records. That's pretty cool. Anyway, over on the Rivalry site, you can preorder some color vinyl, or pick up a shirt or two. Look into it.

Or one sided EP shirts

Get on it. Quit sleeping.

Cold World Merch ...
  -- Tuesday, April 10, 2007

Have you ever been browsing ebay and randomly come across a Cold World shirt selling for the GNP of Somalia? It happens to me all the time. But here's the thing. Most of those shirts are still being pressed by their current record label, Deathwish Inc or are available on merchnow.com. Here's a sample of merch you can find on those sites.

I'd also suggest just buying them directly from the band. $10 and no shipping. They play enough shows that it shouldn't be that hard to come up with one. And after you buy it, please don't just list it on ebay 2 minutes after the show. That just sucks.

Something new ...
  -- Friday, April 06, 2007

Ok, I'm going to try something a little new here. From here on out, the front page will be devoted to "What's New" in the scene. New vinyl, new shirts, new merch, new bands, upcoming events/shows, ... everything along those lines, as I see fit. So send those pics my way, and let's get this thing going.


Peace.
