Back Cover

Here’s the second of the set that belong to Mark Grady and his girlfriend. This one’s Mark’s and has the Vermiform sticker with the Cooper Station address on it, which is before Sam and co. moved to Richmond and even later California. Here’s what Mark had to say about this:

My copy: “I shoona eated all them hot dog.”

I was working as the punk/hardcore buyer at Vinal Edge Records in Houston when Fear Of Smell came out, and probably ordered between 5 or 10 copies for the store from Ebullition upon it’s initial release.  I got first pick of the cover I wanted when the order came in, and this was the one I liked the most.  I still think it rules.  There’s nothing drawn on the back, but does include the “Only 5 made” and “Featuring John Woods” stickers.

Front Cover

Back Cover

This cover comes courtesy of Mark Grady/Twistworthy, who put out several great records on Twistworthy Records and used to be the guy who I’d bother at Sound Exchange in Austin Texas during the years of 1997 and 1998. Here’s what he had to say about this platter:

My girlfriends copy:  “Black heart”

My girlfriend bought this at Epicenter in San Francisco sometime in the 90’s not long after it’s release. It remains unplayed to this day.  It also has the “Only 5 made!!!” and “Featuring John Woods” stickers on the back with no additional art.
