Recollections of the hunter and his prey

About this blog

This is a blog describing the descent into madness brought about by record collecting. It is primarily about the hunt, the smells, the disappointments, the excitement, and the random occurrences surrounding vinyl records. I listen to them too, a lot, but from my perspective the hunt is what makes collecting records an exciting hobby, although it may be maddeningly frustrating and incomprehensible to those around me.

On the hunt for:

  • Articles of Faith-Give Thanks LP
  • Bhopal Stiffs 10 song demo tape
  • Black Cat Bones-Barbed Wire Sandwich LP
  • Blues Creation - Live LP
  • Freddie Hubbard-Black Angel LP
  • Henry Franklin - The Skipper LP
  • Herbie Hancock-Flood LP
  • Mount Everest Trio - LP
  • Neu!-75 LP
  • Revenant - Prophecies of a Dying World LP
  • Sam Cooke-Ain't That Good News LP
  • Sam Cooke-Night Beat LP
  • Strike Under-Immediate Action 12" EP
  • The Effigies-Haunted Town 12" EP
  • The Virgil Lights - (anything else out there besides the 45?)
  • Watchtower-Energetic Disassembly LP
  • Witchcraft-s/t LP

Grand Rapids, MI Punk and Ska

The Bounty Hunters were a punk/ska band that was around from 1997-1999. They mostly played around Michigan, but did play a few shows around the midwest. The later stuff has more of a hardcore influence, and the members went on to form With Arms Still Empty.

The Bounty Hunters - Less Rock, More Sock (1997)

The Bounty Hunters - The Answers Don't Mean Anything (1998)

Just For Kicks were a great pop-punk band that played around Grand Rapids in the late 90s, transformed into Hunter Rose for a few years, and then reformed in the mid-00s.

Just For Kicks

I'm looking for more digital copies of 90s Grand Rapids punk rock from bands like: PR Stunt, misled youth, The Addictives, Slamdunk Rancore, The Krabs, and anyone I have forgotten or don't know about. Most of this music was released on cassette, I don't remember too much vinyl floating around during this time, except for a Krabs 7".
