During a trip back to Ipswich with my partner and our daughter, her parents had found some more of her stuff for us to bring back and this included a few records. Now she has never owned a record player, never played these and to be honest admitted she only bought the Baroness record because she liked the artwork. Not sure what she’s doing with these at the minute, think they’ll end up just slotting into my collection on the shelves (though none of them are really for me, well not the LP’s anyways…)
So let’s have a quick run down of what is here shall we?
LP wise, she has a copy of The Stone Operation” by Mischief Brew. They’re a folky punk band, she’s a big fan, me not so much. But the record itself is really nice. A 50/50 green/purple mix and looks really cool. Turns out it’s a first press and a limited run of 500.
Then we have the Baroness double LP. It’s a 180 gram black, seems to be a first pressing from 2009 and also the cover seems to be signed by three people in silver pen.
Info on this one is here: https://www.discogs.com/Baroness-Blue-Record/release/2020532
There’s a really nice looking record by a band called Power Corrupts. A heavier mix of punk and ska and she maintains she has no idea where she got this one from! Looks great, sounds not so much to my liking!
And the final LP is one from Robert Blake & Erik Petersen called “Bellingham & Philadelphia” – a split LP with each artist offering up six tracks of folky material.
And finally, one 7” single featuring The Filaments and Stockyard Stoics. A six track EP from 2007, surprised I never owned this one actually, well I guess The Filaments are quite ska in places, so that could be why.
