It took a while for Goldfinger’s debut to receive a vinyl release (19 years), but with 3x color variations at only 500 pressings each, last year’s reissues on SRC Vinyl (Shop Radio Cast) proved that good things come to those who wait (ketchup anyone?).
Fat Wreck Chords’ subsidiary, Honest Don’s Records, was a heavy-spun favorite back in my early college days. Diesel Boy’s Strap on Seven Inch (a 7″, naturally) was my first introduction to the snotty Santa Rosa band, and I’ve been (nostalgically) hooked ever since. Venus Envy is the band’s second studio album, and just arrived on my doorstep. If you know a Don, keep him honest. If you don’t, have your way over here.
