Day 31: A reissue.

Yet another great record I forget I own. Summer has been a down-time for me on the record playing front, but as soon as the typical British autumnal greyness sets in I’ll be back to listening to everything again.
Well aren’t I just the lucky one, what an incredible orange/red mix wax this is! You cannot even understand how pumped I am to get this! What a mood booster!

Talk about a kick in the shorts.
Day 30: Oldest record you own.

I have very few records released pre-1977, and with a little searching on Discogs I found my oldest 3- Sex Pistols, ELO & Blondie.
Day 29: Sentimental attachment.

These 3 albums mean a lot to me. They hold memories I don’t think I’ll ever forget.
Day 28: Detailed artwork.

I would have re-posted my Baroness records if I didn’t have to take them off the wall & out of their frames- Baizley does some of the most insanely detailed artwork known to records. However, Bannon makes some incredible stuff too- I love the complexity of this New Lows cover.
Day 27: Haze vinyl.

This is a real weird one- the haze is kinda like a slightly misty coke bottle green colour. Odd, but a great record nonetheless!
I can relate to this far too much. BUS SNAPE.
Stumbled across a craft tutorial this morning entirely by accident and I ended up making these. Tiger gems are super fun! And don’t even get me started on how cute they are!
Day 25: Music to relax to. 

As relaxing as Russian Circles can be, I get super-hyped on certain parts of some songs that relaxing is thrown right out of the window.
Day 24: Beat up record.

It looks as if someone has taken a box of needles to this record- scratched to buggery and it really does affect playback. Unfortunately I got it from an Italian online store with a ‘no returns’ policy. Kinda sucks I guess.
Day 23: Dedicate a record to someone.

This goes out to @lifetourist because 1. It was his birthday yesterday, and 2. I’m pretty sure it was down to him that I got round to listening to Nails in the first place.
Day 22: Bought at a gig.

I saw Run With The Hunted twice supporting Trial back in 2010(?) and they were ace- even at the Borderline. Great hardcore, somewhat reminiscent of a few other songs/bands in places, but still really worth a listen!
