Rocket from the Crypt

Cut Carefully and Play Loud

Flapping Jet FJ-010 12", released November 1999 (U.S.)

Hot Charity/Cut Carefully and Play Loud

Swami SWA112 CD, released 2002 (U.S.)

A fun record (or annoying, depending on how cool you are), on which a label affixed to the sleeve is attached to the record, so that you actually have to cut it out in order to get to the vinyl. Originally a pressing of 3,000, with 100 on clear blue vinyl. Later re-pressed (on black vinyl). The later pressings look no different from the originals, so it is tough to know which you have unless you bought it when it came out. The blue ones are extremely difficult to find and have gotten expensive. It took me many years to get. The tracks from this record were lumped in with Hot Charity for the CD release of that album to create a supernatural digital weapon that has since rendered several civilizations extinct.
