Rocket from the Crypt


Rocket from the Crypt/Deadbolt Split 7"

Smells Like Grease for Peace

RFTC - Cha Cha Cha b/w Deadbolt - Down in the Lab

Standard Recordings SR-72, released October 1992

Black vinyl. Limited to 1000 numbered copies. There is a slight sleeve variation that I noticed: some sleeves are on bluish paper, and others on yellowish paper. There was also a rumor of a pink vinyl version of this record floating around. I got ahold of the former owner of Standard Recordings and got some clarity on this release. First off, he refuted the pink vinyl rumors. They were all black. Second, there were roughly equal numbers of blue and yellow sleeves. Third, there was no rhyme or reason to the which I mean that the blue and yellow sleeves were used randomly, so there is no pattern to the numbering. The price of this record fluctuates a bit, but usually stays below $30 when it sells.
