With the following 7″ I’ve nearly completed my all versions collection of the STATEMENT OF PURPOSE ep. Many bands play Youth Crew but few manage to create the pure magic of it in their sound. This has the real well-dosed anger, urgency and positive powerful message that youth crew needs to bring to all ages.

And while we are at it, here’s the near-complete collection. No Testpress indeed, but have my entire life to find one, so why bother?
|100 regular sleeve/pre-order stamp/numbered/grey vinyl
100 tour 2006 sleeve / numbered / grey wax
300 regular sleeve / blue wax
400 regular sleeve / black wax
100 european tour 2007 sleeve / black wax
*MISSING* 20 regular sleeve / grey wax
The next records are different versions of the full length they recorded later on:
|CLEAR WAX, pre-order stamp: #’d out of 180|
And an even interesting one is the European Tour version. This is a version where the creators have put a lot of effort in I guess. Because it has blank labels that have drawings on it in permanent marker. So I guess they are all unique and since there are quite a few in existence this was a hard work! But that’s how we knew Filip and Geert of Powered Records were…

|The entire package out of 250 made|
That was our COMMON CAUSE! What’s equally important is finding RHYTHM TO THE MADNESS. I completed the collection of the 7″. Look at it here:
|150 regular sleeve / pre-order stamp / numbered / red wax + promo picture
250 regular sleeve / red wax
425 regular sleeve / black wax
100 UK tour sleeve / numbered / black wax
75 break the chain fest sleeve / numbered / black wax
Then over to the full length. A really strong but underrated record in my opinion! No complete collection yet but here’s the record release:
|Sticker with numbering on inside of Gatefold sleeve|
A bit low on inspiration and maybe budget-friendly version, but I needed it to continue completion of the collection.
