Todays stash

Mind Eraser 2003 demo tape. Won on eBay. The tape with the Think I Care and Taste Of Fear covers. Rough sounding recording, though not without it's own charm, the band went on to make remarks on their blog about how they hate this tape due to poor musicianship. I don't see the problem though. Sure, compared to the the 'Cave' LP that followed it, this tape pails in comparison, but I can imagine getting my hands on it when I had never heard anything else by the band before. I would have been speechless I know it. No wonder they went on to do amazing things. These tracks were available as a bonus on the CD version of the Cave album. All bar the two cover songs were re-recorded for said LP.
The 'WFMU radio set / Fucked Up weekend live set' 8 track that I spoke of a few weeks ago. Arrived in the mail with the tape. Like I've said a million times before, I am collector scum.

Still in the wrapper. Number 25 of 50.

Also got a handful of the two latest issues of Distort. #21 and #22. If you're in Brisbane, or if you're one of my friends from overseas, and you want a copy hit me up. If you're not in either of those categories hit up DX.
