Dillinger Four - Situationist Comedy LP - Blue Vinyl


Fat Wreck (2015, Reissue)

This is one of those records that I bought out of habit more than anything else.  I already had Situationist Comedy on vinyl and I even already had the limited colored vinyl pressing that was on pink.  So why did I feel the need to buy it again on blue vinyl?  I'm not really sure.  

For a while I was trying to collect every variant of every D4 record, but No Idea made that pretty much impossible with the ten million different pressings of This Shit Is Genius.  I gave up on that about 4 represses ago.  I guess what it boils down to is that if you change the color of vinyl and call it a limited repress, there are some bands I'm just always going to buy.  Dillinger Four is one of them.

This is one of the stronger Dillinger Four full lengths.  Versus God will likely always be my favorite, but you cannot deny the sheer number of hits on Situationist Comedy.  From "Sellthehousesellthekids..." to "All Rise For The Rational Anthem" to the excellent album closer "New Punk Fashions for the Spring Formal," there are no shortage of fast, catchy, ball your hand into a fist and shout alongs moments on this record.

I can't say that I really needed this repress, but if this album isn't already in your collection, it's definitely a record worth grabbing, no matter what color of vinyl it's on.
