The Frenetics - “Countdown Radio”

Vinyl transfer done by yours truly. Taken from the Frenetics / Nakatomi Plaza red vinyl split 7-inch, put out by Friends of Bad Productions in 2002.

Many times I’ve wished I could easily share this track (which I don’t believe exists on any other release in any other format, be it CD, LP or what-have-you) with my tumblr pals, but as far as my research has been able to surmise, it doesn’t exist anywhere on the internet. I’m not even sure where the hell I got this 7-inch from. Maybe in a lot of 20+ 7-inches I got on eBay last year, but I’m not even sure if this was part of that bundle. At any rate, I’ve been crazy about this song for a while and I’m glad I finally get to share it here. I hope you enjoy it. 

The Frenetics / Nakatomi Plaza split 7-inch

I think I might have gotten this record in a weird eBay lot of like 15 or 20 7-inches, many of them various and sundry types of punk / hardcore of foreign origin. As for this one, the Nakatomi Plaza side isn’t bad, but the Frenetics side is a catchy little gem, and was easily one of the two or tree best songs to be heard out of that pile of vinyl. I couldn’t find the song anywhere on the internet (nor is it on the band’s few CD releases), hence I uploaded a rip of it to YouTube a couple years ago.

This useless 10-inch vinyl reissue of the Dickies Stukas Over DIsneyland came out around 1999. The Restless Records CD edition has three extra tracks and might be my favorite Dickies album (though that’s a tough choice to make.) I have a kind of weird dislike for the 10-inch vinyl format and only have this one because a friend bought it, played it once or twice and didn’t really need to own multiple vinyl copies without bonus tracks. I’ve had it in my possession for about ten years but have only played it two or three times.
I never really offer stuff for sale / auction, but if anyone following would like to take this thing off my hands, I’ll consider any reasonable / serious offer.

The Dickies A&M Years CD (an unofficial release on the Lady Butcher bootleg label) collects their first two albums, The Incredible Shrinking Dickies and Dawn of the Dickies, along with all the non-album 7-inch single tracks also found on A&M’s Great Dictations compilation. It’s nice to have all of this on one disc. The first two albums have been reissued with bonus tracks on the Captain Oi! label, but clearly this is the better idea.

I think I picked this up on Black Friday Record Store Day 2012, but didn’t bother cracking open the shrinkwrap and actually listening to it until today.

All three of John Cale’s studio albums for Island Records plus a handful of outtakes on two CDs. I had a CD-R copy of this a friend gave me (with printed labels and a full black-and-white reproduction of the whole booklet) for like ten years before I bothered buying a real one. This one is even a BMG Music Service edition.
