Standard black vinyl version limited to 400 copies.
F.O.A.D. Records celebrates its 200th release with the most extreme boxset in music history! The ultimate, most exhaustive collection of AxCx recordings from their early years: all their singles, split 7"s, demos, the ultra-rare first tape 1988, rehearsals, unplugged, live... and the impossible to find "A head-shot for your thoughts" promo ltd. to 6 copies. More than half of the stuff included has never been released on vinyl to date or has been out of print for a long time. "When the band started the goal was to be the fastest, noisiest, shittiest band around and to have absolutely no trace of musicality at all.."
(Seth Putnam). "We did it before you and we did it better"
(Tim Morse). 6 x LP's housed in a deluxe box with AxCx logo printed in spot UV, 72 page book filled with never seen before photos, scans of the original releases, liner notes by Seth's mom, band members & friends, memorabilia from Seth's personal archives and a lot more! A monsterwork carefully assembled over the years, mastered from selected, best sounding sources. Without getting in lost in descriptions and labels, AxCx were the world's fastest and noisiest band and their status of genius and nihilism will never be beaten!
