WHITE FLAG "S IS FOR SPACE-25th Anniversary Edition" 2 x 12" LP Hand Numbered Limited Edition of 1000 Colored Vinyl Second Disk Original inserts plus poster and flier Gasatanka Records April 1, 2008 marks the street date for the 25th Anniversary re-issue of Southern California hard core stalwarts White Flag's first release, "S Is For Space", as a deluxe 2 LP vinyl only limited edition. This 2 record set includes the long out of print original LP, (which was recorded and pressed in December of 1982, but not distributed until 1983), as well as a second vinyl album, pressed in random "mystery colors", featuring previously unreleased recordings of the band's second and third live gigs. Record two includes their famous first "real gig", supporting Black Flag, to an army of very angry skinheads in Hemet, California, August 31, 1982. The deluxe packaging features a hand numbered silver foil stamped front cover, heavy duty 5mm spine sleeve, a 12" x 24" reproduction of the original 3' x 4' promotional poster, the original 1983 insert, and a copy of the rare "borrowed" Raymond Petibone art flier from the Black Flag support gig.
This is one of our personal favorite records of all time. The engineer on this record actually left the room because he couldn't stand it and White Flag did some crazy stuff with the record.. there are parts you play backwards and hear messages, the spacing for the tracks is all messed up.. there is a spot on each side that skips on purpose. Germs and Black Sabbath covers.. This record is what old school punk was about.. Having Fun!
