Re: distro nostalgia

Perhaps my greatest distro fail was not buying the first Yaphet Kotto 7" from the Household Name catalogue. Sheesh.

The old Subjugation, Enslaved, Simba, Flat Earth, Land of Treason, 803 and Spread catalogues/mail-outs were dynamite...

Re: distro nostalgia

Land of Treason was a great distro. Whatever happened to Pete? (I think it was Pete)

Re: distro nostalgia

Pete was in Humans The Size Of Microphones (whose discog Kunal just put out) and was also in Kitchener before that.

Re: distro nostalgia

after i stopped being a deepelm fanboy i used to order most of my records at the yage dude who ran nova recordings:

Re: distro nostalgia

nova was awesome

Re: distro nostalgia

I think I made my first international order from Nova, great distro.

Re: distro nostalgia

Land of treason definitely.
Alan's from Wigan was also decent.

Re: distro nostalgia

always looked forward to a rugger bugger mailout.

subjugation kept me stocked with cheapo indiemo cds.

Re: distro nostalgia

got both yaphet kotto albums from keith/rhthym thief from leeds.  Think he used to post on here, never met him.

First time i ever met jebb i just remember he was tall.

Meeting andy was like meeting our lord christ and saviour in more ways than one.

Re: distro nostalgia

I started to interpret that as meaning YK's one good record, and was just about to take overwhelming personal offence!

We're going to party, karamu, fiesta, forever.

Re: distro nostalgia

pretty sure the first distro i bought from was david giles's in 2008 or so. it was for the first empire! empire! 7" and some niche homo zines.

i couldn't set up a paypal account because i was too young, but i had online banking. whenever i asked someone for their bank details, though, they seemed to think i was trying to scam them...

Re: distro nostalgia

I used to get a few bits from Brian Sayle (spelling) and his record label (I forget the name) that put out the Underclass / Hard To Swallow split ep & was a big collector

Re: distro nostalgia

The Steve Nice Distro (don't know if this had a proper name?) was always good for powerviolence bits. Think he might've moved to Australia?

Also feel I have to mention the short-lived Carny Hand and their coffin-shaped envelopes.

Kudos also to the Green Hell and Per Koro second hand sections, which gave me no end of cheapo 90s emo, hc and powerviolence records.

I liked this distro but vaguely recall them getting stick on here, although I don't remember why

here it is:

nothing too negative really.

Re: distro nostalgia

None at all, may well have been in another thread, or just a figment of my imagination (probably the latter)
