V/A - Check This Out, Too CD

ARTIST: Various
TITLE: Check This Out, Too!
LABEL: Onefoot Records
PRESSING INFO: I have no idea!

Believe it or not, I bought this in Canada! There is this big ass store in Toronto called "Sam the Record Man". It was right across the street from out hotel. I was soooo excited to see a 3 story wal mart sized record store. Well, it was all CD's. And over priced CDs at that. I think I ended up paying $7 USD for this comp. Which is really expensive for a comp! Its a pretty good mix of pop punk, melodic punk and plain ole punk. I posted the first comp in the "check this out" series in this blog as well.

My favorite tracks on here are 12, 15, 19, 21.

Brick - LD35 7"

LABEL: Flat End Records
YEAR: ??
PRESSING INFO: Black vinyl
GENRE: Thrash

Here is one I picked up through a record lot off of ebay. It was a lot of pop punk 7"s. And for some reason there was this. I couldnt find much information about Brick because their name is so generic. Its some OK thrash punk. The sound quality is kinda shitty but I know some people who frequent this blog will like this! So here ya go! They also have another 7" out as well.

And if anybody wants this 7" let me know. Or it goes to the record store.

Smackin' Isaiah - The Way To A Girl's Heart...CD

ARTIST: Smackin' Isaiah
TITLE: The Way to a Girl's Heart is Through Her Boyfriend's Stomach
LABEL: Tank Records
CATALOG #: 002
YEAR: 2000
PRESSING INFO: This was the first pressing on Tank Records in 2000. There was also a repressing on All About Records in 2003

You know Smackin' Isaiah. Don't lie to me! There is a pop punk forum that every now and then have some great and rare stuff for sale. The guy who ran Tank Records posted that he had a bunch of old label and distro stuff left over for sale. I bought this and a bunch of comps off the guy. I had heard Isaiah on an old Jumpstart Records comp I purchased at the Go Point in Hanover PA. Good Times

ANYWAYS Smackin' Isaiah ended up changing their name to A Whilhem Scream. And they still kick ass. This release is some wicked fast technical melodic punk rock. Its probably one of my favorite releases in my CD collection.
