  1. I thought I was alone on not really giving a shit about teenage bottle rockets. Years ago at fest (around #10 I think?) I was waiting outside one of the smaller clubs to get into a show. The venue was at max capacity, one in one out type of deal. I was next to get in so I was standing pretty close to the bouncer. Ray rolled up and tried to walk right in and cut the line of 10 or so people. The bouncer stopped him and told him he had to wait. Ray lost his mind. Start with eye rolling, and quickly escalated to Ray raising his voice and yelling lines like "do you even know who I am?!" The bouncer couldn't care any less and made him wait. Ray pissed and moaned for about 10 minutes before making a phone call to someone inside, clearly speaking loud enough for the bouncer and everyone to hear, just calling out the bouncer (for doing his job), name calling him, etc. Somebody with a laminate came out and asked the bouncer to let him in, and Ray gave the bouncer a look like a toddler makes when they are sticking their tongue out for getting what they want. At the time I really only knew the TBR by name and wasn't familiar with their music. But this left such a poor taste in my mouth I never bothered to check them out. I have a few of their albums in my collection because I basically buy everything Fat releases, but I don't think I've ever even listened to them.
  2. Same here. I'm the right age for watching Joe bob back when it was monster vision, but for whatever reason it wasn't on my radar back then.
  3. I have no idea how to post photos on this board anymore, but check out this awesome record they were selling at Joe Bob's Jamboree this weekend! It has the songs from the first 3 seasons, plus a few extras. John, the guy who does all the songs on the show, obviously recorded it, but he had a pretty solid back up band as well. I think it was a guy from Rob Zombie's band, a guy from My Chemical Romance, and a couple others. https://www.instagram.com/p/CRj0xhtJZY3/
  4. Yeah haha. I don't really have a good excuse. I've seen them live a few times at Fest and what not. I just never got around to checking out their records. Thanks! I'll definitely check that podcast out after I digest a few of their albums.
  5. I somehow never got around to listening to Propagandhi. My friends used to bust my balls when we were kids because one of my favorite bands was Bigwig, who according to them were a complete Propagandhi rip off. Order this. Excited to finally check them out. EDIT: 1 song into listening to this. I can 100% see the Bigwig comparison. I'm digging this. Better later then never I guess lol.
  6. Picked up that starter pack with the other LP and split. The only thing I've heard/own by these guys is their first LP, which I don't like nearly as much. Looking forward to catching up. I can always get down with a Kid Dynamite cover as well!
  7. Yes I ended up with multiple copies of the Glassjaw Coloring Book album. It was pretty chaotic trying to figure out exactly what and where to buy those silly things from. With them selling out in minutes, having 120-ish different URLs to try plugging in, all with only 1 record available per URL, not getting email confirmation, different prices on different vendors. That was a shit show. Yes I sold them on ebay for going rate, about $20 dollars more than I paid. Arrest me officer. Guilt as charged. You my friend need another hobby. I thought it was weird you were keeping a close eye on my old labels Instagram and commenting on my hair choices. But now you're following my ebay account? You are a strange man. I can give you my phone number if you want to hash it. I think most people in here would prefer we keep it to fat shit.
  8. Same here. Not the reaction I was expecting posting about a new Get Dead repress. But apparently that guy keeps a close eye on my old label's social media account and does not approve on my hair choice 🤷‍♂️ I wonder what Eric Melvin or Thomas Barnett, or any of the many other Fat affiliates who "happen to be white guys with dreads" would think of this banter lol.
  9. I wouldn't exactly say my record label failed. I put out 21 records from 2009-2016, a handful of bands moved up to bigger labels. I now have 3 kids and run a full time hockey league. I don't exactly have the time or desire to put records out these days. Yeah I have dreads. Yes I am white. These are both true. The crazy thing is, I have never really had any social media. I posted the first picture of myself on my label's instagram about a month ago because I was trying to win a record in a contest. You keep an awful close eye on me for being a hater. I'm going to continue "doing me", posting in the fat threads about things that most fat collectors care about. And you continue "doing you", trolling threads, and calling folks out for their hair choices. Cool life bro.
  10. You mad bro? Just trying to pass some news along to some fellow fat collectors. I’m not sure what dread cream is? But please do tell.
  11. Not fat, but I'm guessing a lot folks in here would be interested. Get Dead repressed their first EP. I think all the variants are limited to /250 but I'm not sure of that US: https://www.prorawk.com/product-page/get-dead-s-t Euro: https://shop.sbam.rocks/products/get-dead-st-ep-1 And there's this cool silk screen edition limited to /100 but $60 shipped to me in the states is a bit steep https://shop.sbam.rocks/products/get-dead-self-titled-ep-sbam-store-edition
  12. I called my local spot. They had a copy and it sold already. I've just had bad luck with this release, Amazon the place I original order from cancel my order, then the new place I reordered from also cancel. Is what it is. Got tracking from Newbury so I should finally have this in hand soon!
  13. haha coming in here to edit this topic. Just found the newbury link. Fuck those guys for charging $5 more than the suggested MSRP, but is what it is I guess.
  14. The fucking universe does not want me to have this Fall Out Boy record. Ordered from Amazon. Sent me the wrong record and was OOS when I called to get the correct one out. Ordered from Zia. Still hasn't shipped. Now is "back ordered". They said they have no update on whether or not they're get any more to fulfil my order. Anybody know any US sites still selling them?
  15. Anybody know when the next buy 2 get 1 sale from Target is? I still need to grab Taylor Swift Evermore and I'd get this too. All Target's sales are usually scheduled. My wife is on a few mommy groups on facebook and someone posted in there that the Target diaper sale is the first week of every month, so now we just wait until the first week of the month and stock up. I'm sure the vinyl sale is on some sort of schedule as well. If only we could crack the code....
  16. Honestly I haven't checked out much since Jackknife to a Swan. Bosstones have never been my favorite ska band, but I really liked the first single off this album so I grabbed it. And I'm not disappointed at all. I'm loving this new wave of Tim Armstrong produced ska.
  17. I'm loving this record. Like way more than I expected to for a Bosstones record in 2021. Maybe ska is just the key I've been missing in my life lately.
  18. Hmm weird that it's limited to /300 worldwide. So I'd assume the EU store has a handful and there's still 244 available. from the US? Strange. Regardless, grabbed a /300. Thanks for the help/info @Fowty Dollazyou're info about the discount pushed me over. I'm now a member of some random label's club for the next 30 days haha.
  19. Oh shit. That’s a good call I should do that. I’ll google the club when I get to my computer
  20. Sorry for all the questions. Totally naïve about this club. So what’s typical before normal folks can go for the /300?
  21. Lucky for you their first LP is just on black. Not limited at all. So you haven’t missed much up to this point, vinyl wise.
  22. They got a full length on red scare. You and I seem to have similar tastes. Check it out you’ll probably like it. It’s real sincere (excuse the pun) female fronted pop. Like lemuria with a chicago influenced spin on it. It’s great.
  23. Oh word. That’s a cool idea I guess if you care about a handful of bands hopeless is working with. Not sure that’s me, but cool idea if you’re into their bands.
