It is hard to recall exactly how this one came to life. All we can remember about it is thinking “Hey, it would be cool if there was like, a sequel to that pixelated, crummy-looking-but-great-sounding MxPx At The Show vinyl that Kung Fu Records put out back in 1999. The final product’s result was sort of a reverse situation. We adore the art that John Nissen came up with, & it was an honor to be awarded the prestigious “Best Album Packaging of 2017” from Pirates Press (thanks are also due to the flawless production execution by our friends at Spartan Records. The Test Pressings from this record are certainly an anomaly: 3 different Test Pressing versions exist. First, we received 15 Tests on 2 LP black. We rejected these, not due to sonic fidelity issues, but rather because we needed to inspect Picture Disc audio on an actual Pic Disc Vinyl. One of the Pic Disc sets came warped, so Jason got the bright idea to try thermal printing new art directly onto the warped #Vinyl copy, to see if it would still play (“Hey, if bands can autograph records with sharpies and the stylus can penetrate through without affecting the audio, why not try a thermal print for a cool alternate color scheme, right?!” Wrong). Audio did NOT play through the thick ink, & that set became nothing more than a pretty, little showpiece. Still, this limited to 1,000, hand-numbered MxPx set became an instant-sellout & rare collectible for fans, especially given that all 30 of the Tests came fully-autographed by MxPx.
