Record Shopping and COFFINS surprise set!

This weekend I had my first full day off with Moo since she moved in. We slept in like whoa and then got some nice brunch at Golden West. Lots of record shopping and I picked up some cool Lp's!

First up is this J Mascis Record I had never seen which turned out to be some awesome acoustic/chanting/singing tracks with some hippy like percussion. Really cool and on sweet purple vinyl!

Next up a triple threat of great 12' singles First one of my favorite mid-period RAMONES tracks "bonzo goes to bitburg"
B-sides on that one are "go home ann" and "daytime dilemma"
Followed by this sweet promo 12' for the BUZZCOCKS box set "product" I have all the songs on this but the art is so sweet I needed this as well!
Last but in no way least a badass REPLACEMENTS 12' of "I will dare" with "20th century boy" and a live version of "hey good lookin" on the flip.
We also made a stop at ATOMIC POP and I had an agenda, that being the SUICIDAL TENDENCIES Bearbrick in the new blind box set. Amazingly it was in the first box I bought!

I would be remiss in not mentioning that earlyer in the week when things were pretty shitty Moo cheered me up with this amazing re-issue of WHITEHOUSE "Total Sex" 2xLP She is the sweetest!
Tonight While at practice I got the message that Japan's masters of DOOM/CRUST COFFINS would be playing a few songs at the end of the TRIAC/FIGHT AMPUTATION?DRUGS OF FAITH/SURROUNDINGS show. I got there in time to see TRIAC totally kill it and ENDLESS BLOCKADE play a short set before COFFINS fucking destroyed. Short but amazing I think this is what HELL must sound like!
