REALITY RECORDS ANNOUNCES LEEWAY DISCOGRAPHY RE-RELEASES
January 22nd, 2015 by Tim
In our 15 years history as a label we are exultant that we can announce the following news:
We’re going to re-release the 4 LEEWAY full lengths on Reality Records!
LEEWAY brought us some of the best crossover / thrash / hardcore ever written and is still a big influence to a lot of current and new bands in our scene! These albums were long out of print and deserve the right sound! ‘Born To Expire’ & ‘Desperate Measures’ can be considered as milestones in the hardcore history worlwide, while ‘Adult Crash’ and ‘Open Mouth Kiss’ are just way to underrated!
All of them will be remastered, will come with an extensive booklet and on top of that, every album will contain loads of bonustracks!
The formats we’re offering: CD / LP / digital!

SKATEBOARDING WITH JEFF NELSON OF MINOR THREAT
August 27th, 2014 by Tim
This was a 1983 video/photo shoot of the guys from Minor Threat skating at a Los Angeles elementary school. Glen E. Friedman was also in attendance snapping photos of Rodney Mullen. If you saw an earlier version of one of the Flipside Video Fanzines, video from this skate session were interspersed with live footage of the band from a gig at the Rollerworks.
Flipside Video Fanzines where a bit of a moving target. Once a 3/4 inch recording master tape was made, it would eventually get “eaten” while dubbing VHS tapes. We would then have to re-edit the entire master tape from scratch from the original VHS tapes. As such, editing points on Flipside Video Fanzines would vary over time. Later editions of the Video Fanzines reduced or eliminated the shots from the skate session. -Joseph Henderson (Flipside)
