Finally got my red vinyl copy of On the Prowl by Rocket from the Crypt. I’d stupidly passed it up at Amoeba the last time I was there. $35 and something like 6 months ago. Lucky for me it was still there on Saturday, and the price had dropped to $30. Not bad considering roughly 100 – 200 were pressed. Pette has it valued between $75 – $100, so not a bad find.
Limited to only 218 copies on green vinyl, Oot & Aboot by Honest Don’s The Real McKenzies looks like your typical, run-o-the-mill black record until you shove it up to any given light source. The music is decent pop punk, but the quasi-hidden color makes for a fun, limited release.
In place of exercise this morning we spun this energetic debut by The Husbands. From what I could hear over the dying fan of my laptop, I LOVED! She now rests in the “have listened to / need to digitize” pile, which is getting rather large thanks to my manic Discogs.com ventures. I can’t wait to relisten to this garage rock trio, and I encourage all within eyeshot to seek it out. It may be a bit premature to crown them the queens of garage rock, then again it may not.
