The Slackers


My Bed Is a Boat

Whatevski DIP-029 12"/CD, released 2014 (U.S.)

Whatevski 7" (U.S.)

Ska in the World SIWI-216 7" / SIWI-217 CD, released 2013 (Japan)

The Slackers did a Kickstarter-esque campaign on Big Tunes in order to re-press Wasted Days. As part of that, they also released the My Bed Is a Boat single/EP for campaign supporters. There was a 12" EP, a CD, and a lathe-cut 7" containing the tracks "My Bed Is a Boat" and "Stereo On". All of those are now brutally tough to find and very expensive. Also, just to make it more difficult, they did some of the lathe-cut 7"s on black vinyl and some on clear. However, some good news...there was also a Japanese version of the 7" on Ska in the World (the b-side on this version was "The Fool"). Those are much easier to come by. The Japanese CD is also much easier to come by than the U.S. one.
