Variation #83

Front Cover

Another ebay rescue job – which I will say I hate doing with their new pop-up image browser. Totally fucking sucks for grabbing images… anyways here’s a new take, kid’s art, with no title. I’ve heard of ones escaping with no art, that’s a theme I’ve heard but not seen. But taping art to the cover, that’s a new one. Well, new to my eyes anyway, it was an aesthetic for a few years after in the emo scene (back before it was a bad word, although some will say it always was a bad word). Here’s what the auctioneer had to say about it:

Very rare hardcore/early emo comp. All sleeve variations were made in editions of 5! Bands include Nation of Ulysses, Rorschach, Man is the Bastard, Heroin, Native Nod, Infest, Moss Icon, Sam McPheeters, Merel and a bunch more. Great copy!

Bit of hyperbole about the sleeves, but it did end up selling for a reasonable $20.01. Here’s a link, which will last for about six weeks (or longer depending on the ebay gods). Enjoy!
