Converge / Napalm Death + 2 Oldies

I got an email recently from Miles in All Ages Records telling me they'd got a few records from a collection in to sell. He kindly sent me a list of some of the items and I was able to find a couple of bits that I wanted. Nothing too exciting though.

Hard Stance 'Face Reality' 7" on green. I have one of these on blue but decided recently it would be cool to try to get all the colours. Clear and red still required.

Next is one of the early Lookout! Records 7"s. The 'Bedtime For Isocracy' 7" by Isocracy.

This is one of the first pressing copies with the numbered sleeve. I've owned one of these for years but the sleeve on mine went all sticky and generally fucked a few years ago, so it's nice to finally replace it / upgrade to a better copy.

And whilst I was picking up these I figured I would add take the chance to pick up a newish release, the Converge / Napalm Death split 7". This record comes on at least 58 different colours. Mine is gold.

During the late 90s I always used to compare Converge to Coalese. Both bands were at the heavier end of the spectrum, and both bands had names starting with 'Co'. Oh yeah, and they did a split 7" together. So I guess it seems fitting that Converge have now done a split with Napalm Death fifteen years after Coalesce.

That hard stance on green looks great

I'm willing to sell or trade my CLEAR copy of the Hardstance "Face Reality"... It's in NM- condition.

That Hard Stance is a great record. Workshed also pressed it on black, then there's the Conversion repress on black as well.
