Good Life and Sober Mind Release Posters
The post isn’t about records but about posters promoting these records. I have myself a small collection of GOOD LIFE RECORDINGS and SOBER MIND RECORDS releases. And these things are despite their not mint condition dear to me and would like to share them to those who also get sweet memories from that period they hung on your wall or your friends’ bedroom wall. Or those who never saw these before are also invited to sniff the late late 90’s atmosphere by seeing them here.
First one is the CULTURE / KINDRED European Tour poster made by Good Life Recordings:
Second is from 1998 promoting the Good Life Releases and with the agenda of that year beneath, looking at those Nike Air Max shoes makes the bandname SPORTSWEAR logical. Who didn’t wear Nike back then? And how diverse was the GLR roster back then, very divers….
Thirdly we have the release poster for the KINDRED “File 01” LP/CD, a beaten but still very sweet looking:
Then three promo posters for SOBER MIND RECORDS releases:
BLINDFOLD “Live at Vort’n Vis” LP promo-poster
And the youngsters of SPINELESS also got a promotional poster for the release of “A Talk Between Me And The Stars” LP/CD. Notice the two different covers as usual for SMR releases!
And finally the release poster of the SEKTOR “Human Spots Of Rust” LP/CD. And that’s a cool one with the bandmembers somewhere in it, but not so recognisable. Click to enlarge or view in different window…
A resume article about the three albums Length Of Time made in their first four years of existence. In depth analysis of some of their lyrics and some notes about the music. And a pressing information fun fact can't be missing.
Sad Origin is a Belgian band from the Dendermonde area. They have released several titles at the end of the 90's. This LP called "A Double Edged Sword In A Triangle Of Emotions" is their only vinyl release. The LP was recorded in April 1999 and released by Genet Records. In this article you will read the lyrical analysis and comparisons to other bands and scenes.
