Jim Shepard 'Picking Through The Wreckage With A Stick' lp.....SOLD OUT
It's been curious to see the recent frenzied interest in all things Jim Shepard & along the way, a new blog has been set up dedicated soley to his works called 'Forever Lowman'
So fans of Jim, V-3, Vertical Slit, go & check it out. It's not a merch site, but if your looking to fill the (many, surely) gaps in his discography digitally, this is the place.
That said, while rearranging a basement full of neglected overstock, I recently came across a box of Jim Shepard's 'Pick Through The Wreckage With A Stick' lp's. I'd all but forgotten their existence; they were over runs from the pressing plant, a few I recall using for radio promo's when it was released in 1995. We didn't have enough covers for them, so just the stations call letters were written on the front of some blank jackets & a cheap printed song list was copied & affixed to the back, done. We sent off a few, the rest went into a plastic tub & filed for posterity. And today, posterity came knockin.
So here's the deal; I have 22 copies of the lp; original pressing, clean, pristine vinyl, never played. I made some mockup color covers from an original copy (these were screened & spray painted by Jim back then) for the front & b/w copies of the back + reprinted the 2 sided insert that came w/original edition. There's photo's left & above (sans insert, but it'll be in the jacket) of what I'm talking about.
Sorry, SOLD OUT.
