Pressing Facts of Zero Tolerance "Fuel The Fire"

People seem to be unknowing about the why of the ringwear on this single. People also criticize Reaper Records for selling records with ringwear. It’s kind of funny I think, that they think that the label stored them wrong or handled them badly. So the story behind the ringwear needs to be told I think.

When Guav was designing the layout he was inspired by firstly the artwork of the original tape release but also by the wear it had, showing the age and used condition of his tape. So he wanted to make the reissue look like that tape he owned. He wanted it also to look used and showing signs of age.

So Reaper isn’t selling records that are damaged but it was totally intentional.

It also exists on clear in a second pressing. Copies of the clear were given a different cover by UK’s The Essence.

Fact is that the first 50 sold copies (pre-orders) had a screened poster included. I recently obtained this copy from a German that runs a beginning label. I didn’t know it existed until I saw it mentioned is his selling list.
