Waiting in the mail when coming back home were the long awaited pre-order records from React! Records. When I was opening the parcel I saw that this label puts time and effort in their packaging.

They started out as a band full of integrity and honesty … Continue reading True Colors Record Releases (Minus One)

Normally I don't buy tapes but these song I heard were so good that I decided to search after this tape. I got it … Continue reading RTTM Demo Tape
I like collecting records from Powered. And this morning two of the three missing releases came in. Namely PRo2 and PR03. So the spinal column of my Powered Records collection is only missing one vertebra.
