‚The Saddest Landscape - Redefining Loneliness‘ (Topshelf Records, 2012)
As it says on the vinyl itself, this is a limited, single sided and screen printed seven inch ‚Thanks‘ record by TSL with one song on it. What a cool way to say thank you to the loyal fans that been there for them for over 15 years!
I picked it up on a show, where I not only came to see them, but also played with my band as their opener - I already told that story, but it‘s nice to reminisce and tell that once in a while. But it was also years ago, so nevermind.
As a record collector, that tries to get all the records of his favorite bands, I didn’t think about it twice.
Unfortunately the song on it, isn‘t my favorite, but I couldn’t care less, because obviously it‘s a song that many people seem to like. I‘d even say, that there was some kind of poll to determine it. I‘d probably went with ‚This Heals Nothing‘ or ‚The Sixth Golden Ticket‘ tbh.
Another great thing is, that the cover shows actual pictures by people that got tattoed a TSL themed image, that they posted or sent to them to show their appreciation. What a community. I have to admit, that I‘m not on of those, but I always thought about it - maybe this‘ll change sometime.
And since I have a little space here, I‘d use the opportunity and tell you why I started this account:
As I started with this profile in March 2016, but began the vinyl purchasing three years earlier, I already had a few. My IG experience was low and I didn’t wanted to be a person, that shows every little thing of my life or my face every time. So I thought ‚music it is’. I also didn‘t want to just showing my vinyls off, because I don‘t care which pressing I own or how many variants I got. I always wanted to tell my opinion and thoughts, about the bands and the music on these records. I don’t know maybe anyone could be interested and in the best case trusts me enough to give the band or the record a listen.
And I don‘t regret it - it makes fun, but I want to do it right (in my eyes) and that‘s why I need some time in between my posts, especially for the new records
