Fucked Up is the latest addition to the vinyl documentary… Fucked Up captivated collectors in a non-conventional way by releasing several short vinyl-only 7″ singles. These singles almost never came on colored or limited vinyl, and most followed the same layout with band name and title at the top. What was cool and refreshing about all of this was the absence of pressing after pressing of wacky colored vinyl. It was always black vinyl, and once you got one single, it seemed like there was already another one coming out. It’s shocking that the band was able to grow so quickly with vinyl-only releases, with very little CD or digital download releases. Nevertheless, there was obviously a method to their madness, and that method has been wildly successful in getting their music out there. Fucked Up has gone on to release highly acclaimed full length “rock opera” type albums, culminating in Damian (vocalist) gracing the cover of SPIN magazine earlier this year (!!!), with “The Chemistry Of Common Life” touted as record of the year. I still can’t believe that! Good for them! This is a documentation of all the different Fucked Up records that I ever had… I definitely never had everything, so this is absolutely not meant to be an exhaustive list of everything that’s out there!
