Alternate 1985

The Back to the Future trilogy is basically my favorite movies of all time. I mean I love any movie from the 80s, but BTTF was just the best. I've also always been obsessed with time, and time travel. What's weird is maybe 4 or 5 years ago, if I had to pick whether to go back in time or forward in time, I would have picked back. But now my past doesn't seem that important anymore. I love reflecting on it and collecting mementos, but now I want the future. I wish I could remember the day I decided I wanted the future. It was probably when I got a career and realized I could do something with my life other than gamble and skirt taxes.

I think I did a post on this album already. But not this version. This is the Ink and Lead split with Sister Kisser on Gruff Beard Records. What's cool about this record is both bands are from LI and not only is the label also from LI, but they were Limited Pressing's first store. And actually this was the first record sold on Limited Pressing too. Weird. This particular version wasn't sold on LP though. It was made specifically for Vinyl Collective. And of course I missed it! Damnit. But what's really interesting is I got this one used in an LP auction ahah. So strange.

Sweet cover! First time I've ever seen this used. They definitely did a decent job. It's just a black silk screen, but it's pretty limited which makes it a really cool version.

And the flip side was a great use of the Back to the Future logo.

Just 22 made and I got 21. Screen door on a submarine, you dork.

It's really too bad Ink and Lead called it quits. They had a little Silent Majority in them. I don't know, they just had a great sound. Check them out for yourself.

Ink and Lead

ohhhhhh and that's where the name of the blog comes from, but I changed it to 95 cause that's when I started collecting.
