DS Record Radar: This Week in Punk Vinyl (NOFX, The Ataris … – Dying Scene

Dying Scene

Greetings, fellow degenerates! Welcome back to the Dying Scene Record Radar, the weekly column where we recap all the recent happenings in the world of punk rock vinyl. If you missed the column the last few weeks during the holiday break, I offer my sincerest apologies and promise it won’t happen again (until next year 😉). Anywho, it’s a new year the Record Radar is back in action. So kick off your shoes, pull up a chair, crack open a cold one, and break out those wallets, because it’s go time!
Fat Wreck Chords gets us started this week with a new pressing of Joey Cape and Tony Sly‘s 2004 split LP. This has been out of print on colored vinyl for a decade and comes as a welcome surprise to start the new year. Grab a copy here.
A little over a month ago we brought you the news that Houston punk veterans  30footFall had signed to People of Punk Rock Records. The label has since launched pre-orders for first-time vinyl releases of the band’s 2002 album The Doppler Effect and 2003 live record 10yearsandstillFALLING. Head over to their webstore to get yours.
Another recent signing was Mom’s Basement Records picking up Nebraska pop-punks The Young Hasselhoffs, who just released their first new album in over a decade. Listen to a few tracks from Life Got in the Way below and go here to grab the LP.
Our most recent Band Spotlight was on Dayton, Ohio’s Houseghost. We told you all about their awesome new LP Another Realm, the first pressing of which is long sold out. Good news! Rad Girlfriend Records has launched pre-orders for a second pressing on orange colored vinyl. Get it here before it’s gone!
A new pressing of The Ataris’ So Long, Astoria Demos LP has popped up on Amazon. I guess it makes sense considering the band recently announced reunion shows featuring this era’s lineup. Gotta capitalize on that shit! Anyway, the color variant looks cool. It’s over 30 fucking dollars because that’s how vinyl works now. Grab it here.
Here’s another thing we told you about a few weeks ago, but why not mention it again because perhaps it got lost in the shuffle of all the holiday hustle and bustle. NOFX is going full Greatful Dead on us and will be releasing live albums of all 40 stops on their final tour. These will be available for digital download, and on vinyl as 3xLP sets. Pre-orders are now available for the Barcelona and Linz, Austria records.
A few years ago, former Dag Nasty singer Peter Cortner and bassist Doug Carrion started a new band called Field Day (named after one of the two Dag Nasty records the duo performed on). The band’s upcoming LP Acquisition compiles songs from their first few 7″s and also features two brand new tracks. It’s available to pre-order on pink or clear vinyl here.
And that’s all, folks! Another Record Radar in the books. As always, thank you for tuning in. If there’s anything we missed (highly likely), or if you want to let everyone know about a new/upcoming vinyl release you’re excited about, leave us a comment below, or send us a message on Facebook or Instagram, and we’ll look into it. Enjoy your weekend, and don’t blow too much money on spinny discs. See ya next year!
