WRECKING CREW - SELF TITLED EP



On hearing Wrecking Crew I always thought that they were a poor mans Agnostic Front, but over the years my feelings towards them has changed and I can now listen to them on their own merits rather than thinking that they are a rip of another band. This debut ep released on the defunct Vortex Records out of Boston ( was this the only Vortex release?) was the epitomy of DIY records. Small label, silk screened and numbered cover, typed lyric sheet and pressed in small numbers. A nice looking effort that was basic in design but still looked great. I got number 74 and according to the Flex site, 500 made altogether, also some copies on green vinyl in green sleeve. 300 made in special grey sleeve, hand numbered.

lots of cover color/vinyl color variations of that 7". Theres also a bunch with hand written messages inside the sleeve that Mark McKay (he put out the record) & Hank Pierce wrote in on the way to the record release show in NYC.
