Weren't there 100 of this color variant pressed altogether?
yeah, there were. i guess they only gave out 40 of them in the "hank the pigeon" contest though.

this has sold for $62 on ebay before, and there are certainly rarer variants of their 7"s/LPs (i.e. the 2011 subscription variant of this same 7") so i'm surprised to see this as high as it is. but in the name of charity and fandom, i'm not that surprised. i'm really glad to see it raise as much money as it has already, but this will just encourage people to flip the copies they own...

also, soupy's most recent ebay purchases were simpsons bobbleheads. what a champ.

The subscription service "variant" is just the least rare color with a photocopied picture as the "exclusive cover" that's a picture of almost no one in the band. None of this was run by us, approved by us or is acknowledged as a variant by us. No Sleep just did that shit. This is an actual variant color that the band had input on the creation and dispensing of. Obviously my opinion on what variants do or do not exist is not the be all end all, but I kind of feel like, if a third party who had legit no part in the release of the 7" throws a whack "cover" over a record without the band being aware, it's not a variant. Otherwise, I'd be making mad get up kids variants in my room and striking gold on eBay.

That's neither here nor there though. Just something I've had on my mind for a long time now. More importantly, solid money is being raised to help Maker and that rules!

i've always wondered what the deal is with that cover... now i get it. thanks for the info! and your forthrightness is always appreciated. i'd be curious to know if there are any other variants you never endorsed besides the 2011 subscription stuff.

p.s. come to portland!

The "record store day" WBPF also irks me. The subscription SIGYAANIN is on the cusp.

If I'm understanding what Soupy is saying....if its not in this pic, it's not endorsed by the band.
(I'm almost positive this is his personal collection)




AWESOME that so many bands are doing things to help Maker.
Last Call was donating all digital sales this weekend.
Pentimento was auctioning off a Test Press and many others doing stuff as well.
