The Slackers

International War Criminal

Thought Squad Y911Y CD, released 2004 (U.S.)

Asbestos/Underground Communique ASB/UCR077 LP, released 2013 (U.S.)

Shattered World Music SW-003 LP (U.S.)

The Slackers are not shy about writing politically-charged songs, and this EP was probably the least subtle example of that. Well, so far. Good Stuff. It was only available on CD for many years, but in 2013, Asbestos Records and Underground Communique Records combined to release it on vinyl for the first time, via Kickstarter, as the 2nd round of The 3rd Wave Ska Preservation Society Vinyl Reissue Project. It was released with a bunch of bonus tracks, making it more of a proper album. It came on red and black vinyl. Both are fairly hard to get.

I got in on the fun, and, as with the Pietasters' Oolooloo record, there was a Shattered World Edition for this one as well. There were 50 copies, all on black vinyl, and they were stamped and numbered on a Shattered World label affixed to the backs of the sleeves.
