The cover of the Numero Group’s new Buttons: Starter Kit compilation.
This is a long-overdue vinyl version of the long-deleted Yellow Pills: Prefill CD compilation; both the new and old versions are labelled with cat. N004, both the new and old are absolutely INDISPENSABLE collections of the best power pop you’ve never heard (unless you have, in which case you probably say this sort of thing to other people all the time).
I had just been lamenting at The Man From B.L.A.N.C.H.E. in an email that they would never release this material on vinyl ever (for so it seemed!), and how huge a bummer that was. Three months later, it’s on the Forced Exposure mail list. Ulp! Directly to my doorstep, please! Do not pass go, do not etc.
The double vinyl comes with a neat little insert bag of color photos and band bios! Power pop nerds, come to this compilation! I’ll post any choice tracks I can find tonight!
