All In A Name

I always wanted to dislike Monster X because of their name. But they were different than a lot of things out there. And I couldn't help but like them.

Monster X. The Marvelous! Used.

I've always found the name of this song to be unnecessarily long.

I Don't Know What You Want But I Can't Give It Anymore (Single 2). AKA Music. Bargain bin.

An "emo" super release. For the era.

Mineral/Jimmy Eat World/Sense Field. Mike. Used.

I always think Big Audio Dynamite is a strange (but awesome) group to come out of The Clash.

But upon further reflection, no stranger than the equally awesome PIL coming out of the Sex Pistols.

Big Audio Dynamite - Megatop Phoenix. AKA Music. Bargain bin.

Rev 25

I get to see Into Another in less in a month.

I'm pretty excited about this.

Into Another - Poison Fingers. Mike. Used.

In 2012 my Integrity collection is at the lowest it's ever been.

This is embarrassing. And needs to be rectified. The Dark Empire releases. The Victory releases. The newer releases. Even Integrity 2000. I need to get it all.

Integrity/Lockweld. Mike. Used.

Does anyone know the pressing information for the self-titled Ressurection seven inch on New Age?

The sleeve I have doesn't even match the one on the New Age discography page.

Ressurection. Mike. Used.

It's Time

With so many other bands of the era catching the reunion bug, the time is ripe for Frostbite to play This Is Hardcore 2013.

And by play I mean Shafer and a drum machine.

Frostbite. Mike. Used.

I forgot that One Thousand Cries didn't originally come out on Trustkill. Which lead me to the Trustkill Wikipedia entry.

I particularly like the "Controversies" subsection.

That being said. I believe the Trustkill version of this release had a kinder, gentler sleeve.

(Pardon that glare.)

Despair - One Thousand Cries. Mike. Used.

What Have You Become

I know it's unreasonable to expect a band not to change.

But I never thought the Red Hot Chili Peppers to turn into adult alternative.

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Freaky Styley. AKA Music. Bargain bin.

Not Their Best

"New York City Boy" is not their best effort. In fact, it sounds more like a Village People track.

But for the most part, Pet Shop Boys have never put out a stinker of an album or a single.

Pet Shop Boys - New York City Boy (Single 1). AKA Music. Bargain bin.

I Wanna Know

A lot of people I know are way into Kill Your Idols. I've never been able to get into them. It makes me wonder what I'm missing.

Crime In Stereo/Kill Your Idols. Mike. Used.

"New" Releases: Go Buy It

Wolf Whistle - MA Glory. Six Feet Under Records Web Store. New.


I didn't know about this seven inch until I got it from Mike. I thought at various points of my life I had owned all of the Chokehold vinyl. This one slipped through the cracks.

Chokehold - ...Life Goes On. Mike. Used.

New Order

I don't think I've ever watched a DVD that came with a "deluxe" version of a compact disc.

New Order - International. Used.

Missing Parts

No "Loco-Motion." Total bullshit.

Kylie Minogue - Hits +. Used.

Sellin' Out

It's probably not the coolest opinion. But this is by far my favorite Lemonheads album. Maybe they "sold out" with it. But who cares?

The Lemonheads - It's A Shame About Ray. AKA Music. Bargain bin.

(The first post in the new non-download format.)

Going Forward

For the time being I am just going to post my backlog of purchases, without links.

If it is something out of print and you desperately need it, please let me know. I will figure out a way to share it.

It's been fun.


My Mediafire account has been suspended (hopefully temporarily).

This could be the end of the blog as I know it.

I will probably continue to post my purchases, but without download links.

It was fun while it lasted.

Geri Halliwell is number three on my list of solo Spice.
  1. Melanie C
  2. Emma Bunton
  3. Geri Halliwell
  4. Melanie B
  5. Mrs. Beckham
In that order.

Geri Halliwell - Look At Me. AKA Music. Bargain bin.

Credit to my father for getting me into Talking Heads at an early age.

Talking Heads - Naked. AKA Music. Bargain bin.
