Well I’m not sure where I copped this image – proably ebay. Anyways, it’s a pretty plain jane deal, but maybe with a lipstick smear on the front cover. Slightly 3-D, slightly interesting.

“The Fear of a Good Smelling”

“Ouch! Foot Foot Discipline”

This one comes courtesy of Edward Felch, who acquired this evidence of foot (foot) fetishism. It’s a good ‘un, with the block lettering seemingly similar to Variation #122, Variation #113, Variation #111,  maybe Variation #61, and Variation #40. Thanks, Ed!

This one is currently available on ebay here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Fear-Of-Smell-Comp-Limited-Release-w-Handmade-Covers-Nation-Of-Ulysses-Infest-/162096267094?ssPageName=ADME:B:SS:CA:3160.

Here’s what the auction said about it:

“Fear Of Smell” Vermiform Records, 1993.
Great comp of bands and spoken word type performances… This was a limited release of 2,441 copies over two pressings. This is the yellow label 1st pressing. All copies had handmade front covers and band Listing sticker on the back covers. Has custom inner sleeve with band info. Features Nation Of Ulysses, Man Is The Bastard, Infest and more. Sam & Joe doing “Save The Children” is worth the price of the album! Look em up on YouTube!

The writing looks like it could be the same person as: Variation #99, Variation #79,  Variation #47, and Variation #6.

This cheesy cover (Get it, cheese? Mozzarella?) comes courtesy of Allan McNaughton, and I honestly meant to post it sometime in the last few months but my basement was the handy recipient of the contents of the local sewer and that kind of threw my life into disarray for months.

There’s quite a few that follow this red and black marker with the “Rich Oliver” sticker – Variation #140, #113, #110, #102#101, #37 and maybe #9.

Hi there – I picked up a copy of this beauty in Flashback Records in London today – thought it was only right to submit. Photos of front and back attached.

Thanks James!

Foot Foot Toast! Slowly I’ve been adding new categories, to make things easier (at first I thought about just linking, but that’s now getting a bit long in the tooth, or foot). Another fine submission by Alex. “Vermiform Compilation of Band” has shown up on several, as well as many other little clues, that makes me think it’s related to some of the other cartoony ones.

So, Senor Dynamite sent these in, the first of two. Obviously a riff on Fidelity Jones’ Piltdown Lad LP  – which is one of those records that you either like, or have taste.

Alex found this one at End of an Ear, the finest record store in Austin, TX currently (way better than Waterloo which has perpetually been overrated). I don’t know why MITB’s “Combat Weed” song gets the bonus plug, but it does. I mean, it’s an awesome song and all, but kind of a dis to others on the compilation.

This version courtesy of Sam Smith, who wrote this about it:

This copy was purchased here in Winnipeg where I live. There’s a few copies in these parts, I know that for sure. Maybe they’ve already submitted theirs. Who knows!

Which is an appropriate time to pimp the blog – thanks Sam. If you have a copy take a picture, front and back, and submit it via e-mail to dietsociety@yahoo.com

This one courtesy of ebay, but really, ironically appropriate for Halloween. Foot Foot Scary! If in fact, that is foot foot, he/she looks more like a cross between a Gremlin and Grimace (yes, the giant purple turd from McDonalds). Not scary at all.I often wonder about Grimace and whether he’s the grown up, mutated version of Eyeore, but I digress. Everyday is Halloween fuckers, so enjoy it. Also, whoever won this one got a good ‘un for $8.
