As much as I'd love to have a copy on blue, I may skip this due to lack of bonus tracks, revised cover art and the fact that I have an original. It's only $14, though, and it's been one of my favorite albums since I was 16. It's also kind of funny that the bandcamp link shows a picture of the later lineup with Nathan as opposed to the one that made this record.

I didn't realize it was in blue vinyl. Fuck. Now I might have to consider getting it. Like JGJR, I already own an original, but I do have a weakness for blue vinyl. Hopefully, this the beginning of an STT vinyl reissue campaign, because I actually need the other 2 LPs.

Had been sneaking around Sense Field's "Living Outside" on clear blue vinyl at my local record store for many months. The cover itself is as shitty as can be, but combined with the vinyl, it suddenly shines. (Plus, given the larger booklet, I learned that those strings are real strings.)

I have the other 12"s on Dischord as well as the Hit Liquor 7" and some other earlier singles like the Catch of the Day split with Unrest and Medusa Seven. I'd love it if the first album got reissued on vinyl. I'd buy Pony Express Record or the later ones if they got reissued, too. I had an original of that one, but I'm much more a fan of the Dischord era.

10 Spot is another blessed album. Perfect. Start to finish. Not a hint of a blemish. Played the living hell out of it.

STT are one of those bands that changed so much over the course of their career, I really never gave some of their later stuff a chance. I remember seeing that weird video on a boat on MTV or something and thinking "When the fuck did Larson morph into Dave Navarro and fuck up STT?!?". Is that last record even listenable?? I first saw STT in a youth center in a field just outside Heidelberg Germany. I hadn't even "heard" them I just knew there was a Dischord band playing and there was no way I wasn't going to go. The opening band was German and the singer had loaves of bread on his feet as if they were shoes, threw raw meat at the crowd during one song and was missing many of his fingers as he explained that he was making a plastic explosive bomb to blow up a "tree of life" on his school campus. STT were great and totally not what I was expecting.

I had never heard the 2 Epic LPs until a year or two ago for fear they were some kind of major label sellout shit. I was wrong. They are both really good.

Also, JGJR bullied me into ordering this reissue.*

The equation was simple. Chris left the band. And it was all over. I don't recognize ANYTHING after 'Get Your Goat'.

THE END.

No. You are wrong. They are terrible. Stop. Or I will never let you and Jules and Hunter buy me lunch in 2018.

STT ceased to exist after they lost Chris and left Dischord. Like many other bands that took the major label gamble, for me this was didnt work.
