V/A - Double Exposure 2xCD

Have you ever bought a CD off of eBay and had the seller say it was complete, only for them to ship you the CD? The first time I bought this comp that is what happened. Bastards. This was on my want list for some time. Mainly because Lanemeyer was on it. I paid around $5 for it if I remember correctly. It seems to be difficult to find, but I don't understand why. It has a lot of bigger bands on it and was released on Go-Kart Records. Best songs are from Boris the Sprinkler, Grey Area, Lanemeyer, Funsize, Discount. 27 tracks on the first CD, and 26 on the second. A lot of pop punk but also some ska and hardcore.

PRESSING INFO: I would have though a few thousand were pressed, much like the Punk Uprisings comps. But I guess not. Released on Go-Kart Records and Black Rat Recordings.

please click the back cover and read that. That is way to much to type for me at the moment!

I have listed both CD's below for you to download.

Boxingwater - S/T CD

ARTIST: Boxingwater
TITLE: Boxingwater
LABEL: Circle 65 Records
YEAR: 1999
GENRE: punk / pop punk
PRESSING INFO: Probably around 1000 pressed

I picked this release up at Megatronix in York PA, not really knowing what the hell it was. I seem to do that a lot. But it usually pays off! And for 99 cents, what do I have to lose? Boxingwater comes from Around Boston MA. I think the town is called Tewksbury. I tried finding something else out about this band, but I really couldnt. They also have a split 7" release with Death by Nostalgia which I will post eventually. Its some pretty good punk rock with a lot some poppyness thrown in some of the songs.
