A total piece of unusal luck

Recommended Posts

So just recently I got into Teenage Casket Company, Rob Wylde from Midnite City's old band.

They do not have the biggest discography (Just 5 CDs between 2005 and 2016) but not much of it is available easily anymore.

The first one I bought was the easy one, the compilation of the debut album and EP. Then it was the EP.

Dial it up, the debut album started showing up out of the blue on various sites but I held off as they were usually around £16 a copy. Just a few weeks ago a few cheaper ones started popping up and I snagged one for £6 or thereabouts.

This just left the final two CD's, which seem to be the rarest.


Suddenly out of the blue, a single mint condition copy of Still standing pops up on eBay with a buy it now of £6.50, so yup, that was snatched up straight away.


Finally it was the rarest of the rare, Left for dead.

Left for dead was their final album and was basically a hodge podge of older demos, a few live tracks and a couple of newer recordings. What makes it so rare though is the only place it was available was at their final gig in Nottingham back in 2016 and was a limited numbered edition of only 50 pressed.

I thought I would never get hold of this one, but I commented on a TCC video on YouTube about how I had just discovered the band and it was sad that this album would probably never complete my collection. Within a short while Rob Lane, bassist for the band, replied saying "Hit me up as I can get you a copy".

After an quick email he sold me a mint condition signed copy for £10 (which included the postage) which was #50 of 50.


Sometimes we do get lucky as collectors.

    • Yeah, that's great stuff. I have all the "Pop Evil" albums and I like everything I've heard (Boss's Daughter is one of my favourite ever songs), but it's all about finding the time to get into them. You seem to be the resident "Pop Evil" expert, so hit me with five tracks that will blow me away!  BTW, I've posted this clip before and I think you may have as well  but it never gets old.    
    • Here's two great, very iconic old school Aussie tracks that I have a connection with. My first job when leaving school at 16 was as a storeman for a stationery company. The other storeman was a guy named Robert "Huk" Treloar. He was a drummer and member of "Blackfeather" in 1978. This track from 1972 is their only hit. I remember him telling me, when they used to play clubs that this track was on the setlist about four times. He was also a member of "The Little Heroes" in 1982. That's actually him playing drums on the single. Again, as with Tommy Vucur from "Vanishing Point" who is a commercial painter that I work with now, it amazes me how these guys go back to being "normal people" and how hard it is to actually "make it" in the industry.      
    • This one's for Cody. Another reason for Alisson Langdon's perfection.    
    • yep that was a really good album but truth be told I would have preferred it as a full Degreed album - didn't really suit Ted's vocals for me 
    • Took a while to get good, but I like the new song too. Apparently I liked the first two as well, so fingers crossed it's a good album.  As for number of tracks, I'll take 10 over more any day of the week, unless it's one of my absolute favourite bands in a groove where they can do no wrong. BFT are certainly not that, so 10 is good for me. Hope they nail them all. 
    • Seen the new ones? fucking hilarious.    
    • I think Night Drive is awesome sounds like an end of credits track from an 80’s James Bond movie. Sounds like LeBrock which is great to my ears.   I’ve loved all three tracks so far. 
    • Personally I don't eat anything that isn't well cooked and this is a good reason to continue that habit! https://www.ctvnews.ca/health/doctors-remove-live-worm-from-woman-s-tonsil-1.5023719
