This is a rare BUILDING 7″. Building is the band were Packo from True Colors chanted in the nineties. It has a green sleeve and orange vinyl. There is stamped numbering on the vinyl label. Mine is copy 007/102. Glad to have an early number. The label is Sober Mind Records. The lyrics Packo has written are always from the heart. It is now in TC as it was then in Building.
This LP is an extremely rare one (/146) from Germany. It is a band called ‘Hand Der Vergeltung’ that plays covers from all hardcore classics. The bands covered are:
JUDGE, EARTH CRISIS, LIAR, INTEGRITY, BATTERY, MADBALL, ALONE IN A CROWD and STRIFE. There is one more band covered but I can’t figure out what band it is. Musically this is pure hardcore and lyrically this is unique because the band has transformed the original lyrics into their own message by adapting them here and there. The LP is called “Tote Erde” after the song they covered from our home grown band LIAR. This is not just a silly cover LP it is really well played and comes straight from the heart. Hand numbered out of 146 and on beautiful deep black vinyl. I really would like to find out more about this band.
This is the test press of the CEREMONY Violence Violence LP. There is also a rejected test pressing of it, but this one is the accepted test pressing. The cover picture is taken by Many Mares who is an active B9 Board participant. This was from the time that Ceremony was on Malfunction records. Later this label merged with Deathwish inc. And also this is before they went on B9 and got an attitude. A very genius band with progressive music and several good lyrics. The Violence Violence LP also contains the Ruined ep at the end of the record. I like this so much that I traded some stuff to get this one. No eBay or something like that.
This is no small a thing. It is the tour press of the already very rare SEKTOR / VITALITY split seven inch. I learned by reading the Sober Mind Records pressing info on H8000 Central that this is logically mostly to be found in collections in Germany because that’s were the most shows of the tour happened. But now it is in my collection here in Belgium.
