i really like casey jones. i loved their 'i hope we're not the last' record and i'm still in agony that their first records, 'the few, the proud, the crucial' and 'the messenger', never made it onto our beloved format, the vinyl. and if they don't re-unite for some unknown reason, probably that will never happen because i don't know too many people that give a shit about their stuff. at least that's my impression. a real shame, that is.
anyway, checking ebay as i'm doing it quite frequently, i stumbled across this split release. it's a split between the aforementioned casey jones and a band named traitor. i never heard of them and going by discogs, they only had this one and only release. so, the traitor side is quite good. youth crew-ish hardcore with breakdowns. unique mixture, at least for me. indeed, the casey jones part is way better in my book. x up or shut up!
the record comes on a nice marbled grey vinyl. the labels were plain black labels and then got the silver pen treatment. each side marked with the initial letters of the bands and the casey jones label has the numbering. mine is #159 of 202. i can't say if the discogs pressing information is correct, because it says that there are 200 copies of the grey vinyl. but i know that there are two more. anyway, discogs tells me that there are 101 clear blue copies and 500 black copies. the label is music city six records. 2004.
