This comes courtesy of Dave¬†Stephenson – and Double Decker Records. I’m 99% sure that this is spoken for. An interesting mashup of Moss Icon and Fear of Smell. The hashtag would indicate this is a test press, the christmasy theme of the tinsel/garland wrapped ones is in line with this one. I’d be happy to hear theories if you have ’em.

Our man in the streets (don’t forget them), Alex nabbed this test pressing with very, um, unique letters that I’m sure Sam McPheeters would rather forget. Looks like a photo from one of those Japanese photo-sticker booths near the spine of the front cover.

Variation #70

Front Cover

Back Cover

Here’s a tasty treat to finish off March, and the current NHL season where the Leafs are yet again fucked for life. From John Steinheimer:

This F.O.S. was given to me personally by Charles Maggio of Rorschach.

The record itself is a test pressing with a white label.

The front cover depicts a hockey goalie fending off a slap shot from centre ice.

The goalie’s jersey has “McP” on it.

The back cover depicts a graveyard with ascending zombie.

The side one label has a pair of television “rabbit ears” antenna.

“Only 5 made” gold sticker and a featuring John Woods! sticker.

Well, finally another one comes in, hopefully that means more are on the way folks – I don’t care if they’re plain as plain can be – like Pokemon, gotta collect (pictures) of them all. So, get your five minutes of fame, shortened for the Internet attention span.
