When I go to work at 5am, I ride my car and listen to a fair amount of Hardcore. Therefore I need Cd’s and one I listen to a lot is the CEREMONY “Rohnert Park” album. So diverse and unpredictable that I never get tired of listening to it! Also the “Covers” Cd -that is from the same recording session- on full rotation early in the morning and in the evening on the way home.

But since I’m a passionate vinyl collector I needed the LP to. I saw several going on eBay but never got to score any of them. But recently I saw one coming out of Australia so being at the antipode side of the globe I needed to stand up also early in the morning to make my bid, which took a fair amount of passion and dedication to do so! I won the auction and to my pleasant surprise the guy who did the auction; Tim, also does a blog on vinyl collecting and also uses So a fellow collector in my eyes. His blog is called ‘Vinyl Abuse’ and can be found here.

The simplicity but effectiveness of the cover is enormous on this release from Bridge 9! A simple layout that can only work with a very good and awesome photo. So here’s the regular house in Rohnert Park with a Skateboarder wearing a MINOR THREAT logo-sweater and ofcourse the American flag. In other words the picture captures a lot of what CEREMONY is and in an aesthetic way also.

The auction I won and was very enthusiast about and still are, was also with a WHITE copy of the teaser ep called “Sick” and needed this one also so I was quite certain about having to win this particular auction!

But that’s not every reason why to let this come out of Australia! Up for auction was actually the pre-order package as it was exactly like from the B9 Store, on which I missed out. So, as you might remember, it has a book written by Ross Farrar plus a poster also. Again a cool thing look at and certainly to read. It also has a photo on it, that again captures a lot of the current American hardcore culture in one single shot:
