Threatbase is no more

Sadly threatbase.com, went the way of the dinosaurs. This website hosted a slew of information on Minor Threat. yesterday went I wanted to take a look and I noticed it was offline. I clearly recall making a back up of the whole website, but obviously I can’t  find it anymore. So I freaked out but thanks to archive.org I managed to track the most of the information. Sadly a lot of details on the individual shows are lost. So if you have some more information please comment to this blog entry.

So first here are the show dates I managed to dig up:

Egg Hunt

I don’t think Egg Hunt needs an introduction, but just for the sake of it.

In the spring of 1986 Dischord founders Ian MacKaye and Jeff Nelson (both formerly of Minor Threat) went to England to visit, and were invited by Southern Records founder John Loader to do some recording while they were there. Southern was operated out of a row house in a neighborhood called Wood Green, and John had a 24-track studio set up in the garage. They recorded four songs, including “Me and You”, something that the two had been playing together in the basement for many years, and “We All Fall Down”, which was written by Ian for Embrace, but had been passed on by the band. Having had such a good time recording and hanging out in London, Ian and Jeff decided to release a single to mark the occasion. The name was chosen since it was recorded over Easter weekend. During the recording session they actually recorded four songs, but only the early mentioned two songs made in onto the single. One of the other songs was probably called In Defense of Humans. They got help during the recording session from two members of the Dutch band Funeral Oration(?).

Plans to continue the project with former Gray Matter members Geoff Turner and Steve Niles rounding out the band never came to fruition, although Steve, Geoff, and Jeff would soon form Three. Egg Hunt marked the last time Ian and Jeff would record together.

Thus far I found four different pressings of the 7” and a test press. The test press is plain black vinyl with plain white labels and was pressed in France just like almost all Dischord releases from 1986 until the early 00’s. According to Jeff Nelson, they made around thirty copies of this one, but unlike other Dischord test presses at the time, these weren’t handed out a promo’s to radio stations and fanzines.

Test press:

A-side (marked by Jeff Nelson with the catalog number)

B-side

1st press:

The sleeve mentions that it is “Made in France”; the price is $2.50 postpaid from Dischord. The sleeve has a matte finish and has a cut out for easy access to the record. Compared to the 2nd and 3rd press the sleeve is slightly lighter.

Image

Image

The labels are in greenish, white and black and again mentions “Made in France”.

Image

Image

2nd press:

The sleeve mentions that it is “Made in France”; the price is $3.00 postpaid from Dischord. The sleeve has a glossy finish and has a cut out for easy access to the record.

Image

Image

The labels are in blue-greenish, white and black and again mentions “Made in France”.

Image

Image

3rd press:

The sleeve mentions that it is “Made in France”; the price is $3.50 postpaid from Dischord. The sleeve has a high glossy finish and has a cut out for easy access to the record.

Image

Image

The labels are in greenish and black and again mentions “Made in France”.

Image

Image

4th press:

The sleeve mentions that it is “Made in USA”, the price is $4.00 plus postage from Dischord and it has a matte finish plus the Dischord logo on the back is slightly smaller. The color of sleeve is slightly lighter compared to 2nd and 3rd press.

Image

Image

The vinyl is rotten eggs mint green colored and the labels are in greenish, white and black and again mentions “Made in USA”.

Image

Image

There is also a cd version in a cardboard sleeve.

Straight Edge Live 1982

This next fanclub release has a more professional look, nicely printed glossy artwork and a professionally pressed shiny silver disc. The design department could have done a better job, varsity letters and cheap Photoshop effects don’t cut if for me.

The live show is the same as the 12XU LP and contains a few more songs than listed on the back of the artwork. It was record at the Wilson Center on 30th of April 1982. So sadly these recordings are widely available and nothing new to look forward to.

If you don’t have the 12XU LP or any of the other releases that contains this set, give it a try. The band sounds great and there is a lot of funny and interesting banter between songs.

ImageSorry about this last scan, I didn’t feel like re-scanning it.

Bottled Violence

I am not a big fan of homemade Minor Threat fanclubs releases. Cheaply printed artwork and an even a cheaper cd-recordable that are often being used just doesn’t give me something I would like to have. But when I run across this cd, I thought I might as well give it a try since it supposed to contain some unreleased Minor Threat tracks. To keep this story short, it doesn’t. The songs that supposed to be unreleased Minor Threat tracks are in fact unedited songs from the Skewbald/Grand Union session with fake song titles. Nothing to lose your cool about.

So what is left area whole bunch of live recording s and the both awful and awkward cover that is a rip off the Jack Daniels label. The live recordings aren’t rare at all and some sound a bit dull.

Weird release, not worth your time.
