Out Of Hand - Dirty South [Hemlock 13]

 Out Of Hand, the little shits, these guys used to cause so much shit when they played.  It was amazing, real shows should be dangerous, you should be worried that people are going to get seriously hurt, you should be on the look out for flying fists, feet or chairs.  These guys were the real deal.  At the time this record came out, I was broke as hell, working a minimum wage job and paying way too much on rent and bills to even contemplate buying vinyl, in fact I was selling a lot of my records to get by.  Something I have been regretting for years now.

I picked this baby up a few months back when Billy Lumm was shedding off his record collection to fund a round the world trip, I'm guessing Nate must've found a box of them after the rest sold out and made a bunch of special covers.  Correct me if I'm wrong, that is pure speculation.

Best thing about this record is the run off etching "Jon IB: CT's hardest mosher."  Ha!

I'm off out for a Nando's.

Right Brigade - S/T [Stillborn]

A little while back, batween last December and now, I found out that Stillborn records (Run by Jamie HAtebreed) were selling off a bunch of records real cheap. One of the records that was going cheap was the Integrity/Hatebreed 7" which i already owned, the thing was, to clear a bit of space they were giving away a free record with every order and the Right Brigade 7" was one of those free records. 

The record is on pink vinyl, which I have no clue as to what the pressing info is, but for such a hard band, pink wax is an ironic choice and I for one like the choice.  

 If you haven't listened to Right BRigade yet, I suggest you do, they didn't get as much hype as some of the other bands from Boston around the early 00's, but more current UK bands like Cold Snap took a lot of influence from these guys.  Definitely worth your time, they did an LP on Revelation which is a banger too, I picked that up when I ran a distro in '02/'03.

I've neglected this blog of late, mostly because I haven't been buying as much vinyl and mostly saving for a big move next month, but I have been buying the odd gem, over the next few weeks I'll get back into posting again.
