Yo,
Kevin doesn't have time to motherfuckin' elaborate. He drops nuggets of wisdom and then vanishes, like Casper the Friendly Ghost.

I'm guessing it will be these 6 records that still sell like fuckin' hotcakes on ebay:

I can only wish I had a nickel for each time Dischord mailorder had to field a request for a repress of Fidelity Jones earth shattering 7" on 180 gram vinyl. This record changed the landscape of recorded music. Period.

Fuck yeah! I hope they make them true to the originals (no heavy or glossy cardboard and no UPC). I'll buy either way.

Honestly, they need heavy/glossy sleeves. I also hope they have some variations so people don't try to pass them off as the real ones. I plan to continue to buy the first Discord 7" until I am released from this mortal coil, only to have them all being melted at my funeral and have the footage posted online. I'll be doing the world a favor as the remaining ones I haven't gotten my grubby fingers on will now be more worth!

I owned some version of all of them. Teen Idles was a second press, first Minor Threat was a 4th press, and In My Eyes was a third press. If the reissues feel "modern," that will be a big turn off. They won't be using the same stampers, so the reissues will always be distinguishable from originals by matrix number. T&G did an amazing job with the Fix records. If they are half as good as those, I'll be happy.

Well, I am a record collector nerd, but unlike most, I actually listen to the records and don't keep them in a climate-controlled sleep chamber and rub them with a brush after each listen, so I put the records in and out of the sleeves etc and those sleeves are like wafer-thing. I'm scared to touch the paper as I tore the shit out of one Minor Threat sleeve putting it in a photo with my fuckin' Hummels (normal wear and tear). I have no issue with them upgrading the sleeves. I haven't seen the Fix record, but I think there is going to be more interest in the Discord ones and if it's a box-set of some sort, then they are going to be some design issues. I'm just gonna buy it regardless so what the fuck does my opinion even matter??!

Why in the world do you have to take the sleeve out to play the record? That's what the opening at the top is for.

Probably? Kevin usually has good intel. I messaged Dischord and asked them to confirm/deny and got no response. They are usually pretty quick to respond, so I'm guessing it's real, but they aren't ready to officially announce it yet.

I never ever get a response, only when I bug Ian directly.

Honest question...

What was the last Dischord release you guys went bonkers over that was from a newer band, excluding Red Hare and the recent Dag Nasty?

I still like Dischord. Yes, Red Hare & DN but also the most recent THE EFFECTS is really good Other "newer" stuff like Office of Future Plans, Black Eyes, El Guapo......they still put out quality releases if you dig the "DC" sound

Well, besides the Red Hare LP, 7" and Dag Nasty 7" and the slew of re-released stuff (and/or stuff like Youth Brigade/SOA 7") the things that I was even remotely interested in would have to be:

Office of Future Plans (2011)
Evens LP (2006)
Lungfish "Love is Love" (2003)
Bluetip (2001)

So yeah, they are pretty much a "back catalog label".

But to be honest, I don't think Dischord has any interest in seeking out or having an updated roster. I mean besides ads in mags like MRR and simple promo posters and stuff, they never really were into pushing bands anyway? I think I've read that bands that expressed an interest in the label in the past 10 years were turned down. Not sure if Dot Dash or newer bands even asked or if it's just an unspoken "don't call me, I'll call you" kinda thing. Like Frontier or SST (besides the whole "not paying the band"), they seem to be focused on keeping their back catalog in print and available. Nothing wrong with that?

Well, Lungfish really only have one song, they just play it slightly differently. So yeah, I like that LP also!

Recent is fairly relative since dischord only puts out a new record like maybe once a year now and some of those were old recordings released. With that said, the Deathfix record was absolutley amazing...to me

I really like THE EFFECTS record, but "bonkers'" is probably too strong a word.
