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.

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 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.

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.

Gold backed (like Variation #11), with an oopsie painting over the Featuring sticker… weird. I suspect both this one and #11 were done by the same talent, both have some skill with drawing things (if not spray painting things gold). This one comes from Daniel Malin – his third submission (although I swear he’s got more submissions than that) so a big thanks for that. I’ve never seen a cover as intricate as this one and being drawn – it’s very graffiti influenced (or vice versa, seeing as a lot of the circa 1990’s punks in NYC were also throwing up pieces at the time). It also breaks Daniel’s streak of “boring” covers.

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.
