Front Cover

Back Cover

Welcome back, from a bit of a prolonged break. Yes, I ran out of covers to post. Then I got a couple submissions, but my life fell apart. Now all seems to be right with the world, so I’ll post some up whenever I get them. So with that said, if you know of a copy out there, that’s not up here, by all means take some pictures, and submit it!

This copy comes courtesy of Charles Maggio, proprietor of Gern Blandsten Records, and was a part of Rorschach, who are on this comp. Buy the Rorschach and Big Boys records he’s done… excellent stuff. In fact Rorschach were one of the best bands I’ve seen. On tour with Born Against and Antischism in 1991, they made my summer and I still think that they blew both of their tour-mates off the stage the two nights I saw them. Also, Keith (one of Rorschach’s two guitarists) was one of the nicest guys to have a conversation with.  Anyways, here’s what Charles had to say about the comp:

Hey Man
Saw your blog. I will photograph my personal copy soon (it has tinsel around the edge) but until then.

This copy was originally owned by Will of Chainsaw safety Records. It is going on EBAY tomorrow.

It is rather Plain, but it is certainly Sam McPheeters handwriting on the front.
Back cover has “Only 5 Made” “Featuring John Woods”, and “File Under Fuck” from the RORSCHACH remain sedate LP stickers.


This copy bears a certain orange tape resemblance to Variation #49, Variation #48Variation #27 and Variation #17 .
