The Slackers

Before There Was Hellcat

Self-released USB Drive, released 2011 (U.S.)

In 2011, the Slackers started selling a USB drive containing a bunch of rare and unreleased tracks. They were only selling this at select shows; it was a standard USB drive with no special markings. In early 2012, they released a version of it with some cool packaging (shown above), made to look like a cassette. This version was sold through Interpunk. The drive contained the deluxe remastered edition of Better Late Than Never, The Nods album, compilation and demo tracks from 1993-1996, a live show from New York's long-gone Wetlands, a few 1995 live tracks that the band used as a demo, and a hefty set of rehearsal tracks from 1993-1996. The retail price tag was a bit high at $35, but it would go for a lot more now. I've never seen it sold. The value below is conjecture. It was an interesting set of tracks for the completist.
