Pirates Press PPR231-1 LP + 7", released 2019 (U.S./Europe)

Peculiar was a very solid Slackers album with some odd, yet very cool, artwork. Originally released on black vinyl in the U.S., which is still fairly easy to procure. There were several CD versions released in different countries. The Japanese version had a bonus track, "Rider", from the International War Criminal EP. That was the only track from that EP that did not make an appearance on the other versions of Peculiar.

2019 brought with it a bunch of re-pressed variants of Peculiar, all on Pirates Press. The re-press came with a black vinyl 7", which contained "Rider", along with a dub version of "Propaganda". The variants were electric blue (limited to 1,500), "electric blue & white galaxy" (this was the European pressing, limited to 500), "white inside electric blue inside bone" (a Pirates Press mail order exlcusive limited to 250 copies), and "electric blue & bone pinwheel", which was a band exclusive only sold at their shows (limited to 250 copies). Those last two seem like the ones to get.
