Copped from ebay, no real purchase information other than the usual ebay legal disclaimers.

But don’t shit on the little guy cuz that’d be way ageist, y’know

Seems like a statement that only the 90’s could’ve put on a record cover. The black electrical tape is reminiscent of my cover, which had tape around the edges ala MRR’s catalog.

Always the simple one’s eh, Daniel? Someone else bought it, which would’ve been an amazing addition to the bland covers collection. Looks like Sam McPheeter’s handwriting on this one as well. This bears some resemblance to: Variation #114.

One from the ‘Bay. Guess the cover artiste was a little less than inspired today. There wasn’t much of a description of this one either – which frankly isn’t that surprising. Oh well, how much can you polish?

Pseudo Star Wars strikes again (considering the previous R2-D2 cover)… anyways this was sent in back in July 2013, but in the abyss that is my e-mail, I missed it entirely. Here’s the belated story from Tim Leanse (with my profuse apologies):

just packing my LPs up for a bit, and suddenly remembered to submit! forget where the exact purchase happened, but i’m guessing a Boston or Cambridge, Mass. record store (Pipeline?) in the late 90s.

This comes courtesy of Dave Stephenson – and Double Decker Records. I’m 99% sure that this is spoken for. An interesting mashup of Moss Icon and Fear of Smell. The hashtag would indicate this is a test press, the christmasy theme of the tinsel/garland wrapped ones is in line with this one. I’d be happy to hear theories if you have ‘em.

Our man in the streets (don’t forget them), Alex nabbed this test pressing with very, um, unique letters that I’m sure Sam McPheeters would rather forget. Looks like a photo from one of those Japanese photo-sticker booths near the spine of the front cover.

Here’s an e-mail submission via  Andrew.

Just saw your blog. Great idea. Here’s some pics of my copy of the record. Sorry they’re sideways!

What are the chances that the drawing is an action shot of a fart? Or… ?

Actually it looks a bit like a tiger lily to me… but maybe it’s a rorschach-test type question – it reveals much more about the viewer than it does the actual artiste. The back cover resembles the spray can work of Variation #75 and Variation #45. Maybe even Variation #11?

“Oi Oi Oi Vey” All Jewish Orthodox Punk Compilation!”

Chris stumbled upon the blog and posted his version – which bears a resemblance to Variation #105, Variation #40, Variation #37, and Variation #113 – they all have bubbly letters, and if you look at the bottom of the E in Fear, it’s got a similar bump in it over several of those similar. I read somewhere that NYC has the highest concentration of orthodox Jews outside of Israel. When I visited in the mid 90’s – that certainly was something I noticed on the lower east side and in Brooklyn.

Chris also is part of a design firm, so if you need your firm designed, contact him through their website. Thanks Chris!

“I can’t believe I’m going to kiss a dog.

At least you know what you’re kissing”

I just can’t believe I’m gonna suck a rubber!

At least you know what you’re sucking!”

Well, all’s fair in puppets, sex and war I guess. Or that’s what Meet The Feebles taught me. This one’s a clever bit of juxtaposition and comes courtesy of Double Decker Records and our man in the field Alex. Happy holidays everyone and may all your stockings be stuffed with the fear of smell.

Found in this rogue’s gallery of records, Alex copped this image from Instagram (so thanks Alex!). Of course, if you’re the owner, e-mail or comment and give us some more information. Blue poop for the bruised lips guy in a hat? Of course. Makes perfect sense!

“Vermin Forms Scare Me… Uh Yeah #11″

Got this submission in from the ether, but here’s some context and linky-links for you to click on.


not sure how I came across your site, but it’s great. I love the idea and seeing the other variations.

attached are pics of my copy – I got it at the Born Against show at the Mountain Lodge in Washington DC, Jan. 30 1993. I sifted through the copies on offer and picked this one since it seemed like it had a lot of work on it compared to some of the others.(Also picked up the Man Is The Bastard / Bleeding Rectum split 12″ which I had been trying to find for a while – oh, the days before the internet!)

also, I videotaped the show, and just dragged it out and uploaded it to youtube – feel free to include the link.


let me know if you need better pics, I can try to borrow a better camera.
