Annnnd Alex sent this one in too – clearly from Instagram’s yesterdaysheroes. Looks like this, and Variation #8 are closely related. From the Mike Bell(?) presents, to the quotes around Fear of Smell… oh yeah, the clincher being the 3/3 in the bottom corner. Seeing as #8 has 1/3 – someone out there, probably in California (Stamford region perhaps?) has 2/3. C’mon folks, dig through your old records and see if yours is, uh, #2.

“Someone thought this was a good idea.”

Marc Arsenault sent this one in and I sat on it for a while (actually this post is probably back dated, so didn’t appear on the date it says it did, who the fuck cares?). I have no clue what this cover is getting at, although I’d suspect this might have come from the New Jersey crew of the Vermiform allied folks (Merel were from Jersey, no?). The S in the “someone” looks like from the Skeptix “…So The Youth” LP (on the notorious Rock-O-Rama label, but Skeptix were not a nazi band in any way).

And the pavement is grey duct tape, but chunks, not one solid piece. If it were a piece of modern art (and, fuck it, it might be) I’d say it has a lot going on.

Looks like the plain businessman style of Variation #39 . Thanks James and nojsbojs!

Jason Schulmerich contributed this via e-mail. Here’s what he had to say about it:

Ahoy. Procrastinated for years on sending this. Sorry. I found another copy long ago with a drawing of a burning U.S. flag on it. I gave it to my friend who actually died a few months ago. I’ll see if I can somehow wrest it from his estate. So, you may hear from me again. Later.
 No need to be sorry, it took me two and a half months to get it posted!

Another one dug out of the crates by Alex. Featuring your Fucking Mother! I guess that’s a reference to the Sam and Joe track. The bubble-blocky letters look familiar – if you want to have a look at the similar ones, here’s a handy list (bonus points for those that also have the Only 5 Made on the front rather than the usual back): Variation #122, Variation #111, and quite likely Variation #38.

I’ve heard it before, uh wait. That’s not how this post goes, I in fact have seen it before, and I do want to see it again. Alex found this one in the wild, so all props to him. Maybe one of the spray painted covers, after they gave up adding tinsel and doing the same old same old.

So this one came from the man in the field, who’s seen as many of these and will be a part of the blog hierarchy very shortly, Alex.

Looks like the Slow and Fear (as well as the list of things to do) are in one marker, with the of smell finished at a later date.  Perhaps that blop of schmutz is an erased “buy a new black marker”. Or maybe it said, “finish list”. Either way, a neat cover to ponder.

I guess it’s only appropriate to celebrate baseball’s spring training starting with a cover loosely related to baseball. Who am I kidding, who gives a fuck about baseball? Gold spray-painted back, similar to the R2-D2 one from a while back (Variation #11), and Variation #132. This one also comes from Senor Dynamite.

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.
