ANTIMATION - Mono-Types
Copies of original 1981 LP in newly produced sleeves. "An obscure rarity from St. Louis! Decent to really good punky pop rock and sorta Paisley Underground-ish sounds. The band was led by Tony from the Camaros who were one of the first-wave Punk bands from the area. They had Mike Yaffe who was between his stints in Max Load and Bob Leach who was in Trained Animal (Test Patterns comp) and the infamous MRR-baiting White Pride. The drummer is Mike Doskicil, who was also in White Pride and the front man for sludge-core legends Drunks With Guns. Of course, this doesnt sound like any of those bands. The record was never issued in a cover. A few may have been sold in blank jackets, but most (probably all) without any jacket at all. 500 copies were pressed, but according to the band, as many as a couple hundred were tossed out or damaged in storage. They made an 8 1/2 x 14" piece of art with titles/info which was printed on red construction paper. The record was never distributed outside the St. Louis area, and less than 100 were sold when the band was active. Most probably came with the art work but many of those probably never survived the trip home after a gig. Some copies were later sold at local reunion gigs and other events, but the record is still virtually unknown outside of St. Louis. Almost every other copy of the art work was used for the blank backside for set lists, scratch paper or even lost in moves or just tossed out. We estimate that only 100-150 copies at most actually received the art, including any copies sold in recent years. We first learned about the record in 2000, and of the 10-12 copies weve seen in used bins or private collections since, weve only encountered a couple with the original art. We obtained the last remaining copies of the original, unplayed vinyl from the band. We've housed them in a blank white jacket and made high quality (and now larger 11" x 17") reprints of the original artwork." -Rerun.
