Vinyl news #2 - Slapstick, the Broadways

Asian Man Records is repressing a lot of OOP records. In fact, they're putting some records that have never been pressed into the market. I just purchased Alkaline Trio's Maybe I'll Catch Fire and Alkaline Trio on red/white and beige marble, respectively. Now, they're repressing the records that got it all started. Slapstick's 25 songs is my favorite ska-punk record. I've wanted a copy for a long time. I have an OG copy of Broken Star, but the new gray marble press is pretty cool anyway. Also, Broken Van got pressed, but I own that on cd. (I own all those Trio records on CD, but I'm kind of a sucker for the old trio stuff.)

Also! The first two Lawrence Arms records have been pressed twice! I might put photos of those up here if I can get home to take pictures. I bought the second presses.
