Variation #147

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

$_57 (1)

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.

“A moulderin’…”

This one courtesy of Alex Sanchez, who has sought out these things like a bloodhound. I’m looking too of course, but can’t get seem to get the scent. Regardless – this is the copy that belongs to the drummer of Mouthpiece. Standard back (although I’d debate the standard back idea, as we’ve seen some weird variations like Richmond addresses, or no Only 5 Made sticker, that occur frequently enough that I’m not sure, even 100+ covers in, that there’s a standard back) . Not a big deal, because I’m sure standard back means just the track listing stickers.

Triangle corner notes pop up again, as they did in Variation #9,Variation #72 and Variation #13.

A statement, this one is. This is the fifth of five from Matt’s basement courtesy of Alex.

Yes, triangle A’s. As seen here:  Variation #42Variation #102, Variation #101 and  Variation #128. AND Variation #129. Maybe it’s time for a category for these triangle A’s.Upside down Featuring Rich Oliver sticker is an interesting choice – maybe a batch were stickered then drawn on? Either way, there’s not much to ruminate about this one.

This is the fourth of five from Matt’s basement collection – courtesy of Alex, again, thanks!

The outline text of the comp title reminds me of the Misfits text cover (aka Variation #38 – note not 138, frankly that would’ve been brilliant, and had I thought about it, I should’ve held out that one for just such a clever ploy.

The third of five submissions via Alex from Matt’s basement. Hey Matt, please let Alex out. It looks nice enough, but sheesh, he’s  a good dude eh? As I said not so long ago, the triangle A’s would probably strike again… and they did:  Variation #42Variation #102, and Variation #101. Oh yeah, add Variation #128 to that list as well. This one may be more closely tied to #102 and #101 as they all have that red and black combo with the triangle A’s. Kinda diggin’ on the Safeway/Yin Yang logo in the middle.

Again, another find from Matt’s basement, via Alex the blog’s second in command. We’ve seen vertical lines elsewhere: Variation #118. And the triangle A’s: Variation #42, Variation #102, and Variation #101 (with 102 and 101 clearly coming from the same batch). I’m sure we’ll see these geometric hipster prognosticators defecate, I mean decorate some covers in the future. Again, plain back with the side a and side b stickers.
