30 Amp Fuse - Self Titled 7"

ARTIST - 30 Amp Fuse
TITLE - 30 Amp Fuse
LABEL - The Arena Rock Recording Company
YEAR - 1996/1997?
PRESSING INFO - Gray marble vinyl

I just recently picked up this LP on my annual trip to Philadelphia for CZW Cage of Death. I believe I bought this from Repo Records, and for only $3.99. I was pleasently surprised when I drop the needle on this record. I was expecting a more polished power pop sound, as was the case with Wind Up. However this has a harsher more pop punk sound to it.

This seems pretty hard to find, but not impossible. I'm not sure how many were pressed but It seems it was only pressed on gray marble. The zip file contains scans of the inserts, as well as all 3 tracks!

A1. Whatever It Was
B1. Stereogram
B2. A Good Flying Bird

Thanks for this. A nice Tobin Sprout/Guided by Voices cover on the b-side, too.

Thanks for the album, i've listening to 30 Amp Fuse in a regular base lately, so i'm looking forward on listening to this one. I'm a HUGE 90's pop-punk fan as well, and one band I've been looking DESPERATELY for a long long time and i just cant find anywhere is FIVE FOOT NOTHING from Canada, and their album "Pretty Nuclear" released by the almighty Boss Tuneage Records, but originally released in 1990. So I thought that maybe you could have this one, or maybe you could have a clue who could have this record. It would be awesome if you could help me in any way. Thanks

Thanks for posting this! I've never listened to 30 Amp Fuse before, but I really dig this album. Your blog has introduced me to a lot of artists that I never knew existed. Keep up the good work!
