THE LADIES "Blow Your Mind" Discography tape OUT NOW!

We did these as a nice tribute to one of the raddest bands I've ever known to come out of Richmond, THE LADIES!  A fitting release for Grave Mistake #69, with some over the top artwork we've come to expect from these dudes. They did us the honor of doing a little reunion show last month, and we made sure to have these tapes ready for that - the full 18 song LADIES discography in just under 16 minutes, remastered specifically for this collection. Only 150 pressed, and we have a little over half of them left for mailorder so do yourself a favor and grab one (oh, and they make GREAT Christmas gifts)!

GRAVE069: THE LADIES "Blow Your Mind" Discography Tape

Cassette discography from one of Richmond's greatest and most notorious punk bands, THE LADIES.  This tape only release compiles all 18 tracks of THE LADIES' studio recordings; four EP's worth of material consisting of their debut EP on Riff Raff Records (later repressed on Grave Mistake), the "Hole Sailor" EP on No Way / Black Lung Records, "Trashed" EP on Cowabunga Records, and "Six More Reasons to Hate The Ladies" EP on Grave Mistake Records.

The Ladies were an integral part of the mid-to-late 2000's hardcore punk scene here in Richmond along with bands like GOVERNMENT WARNING, DIRECT CONTROL, WASTED TIME, CLOAK/DAGGER, SOCIALCIDE, etc; their brand of no frills high octane garage punk complimented their hardcore contemporaries to a T, while bringing a healthy and much needed dose of trashy, tasteless humor into the mix.  Perhaps you had to experience them first hand to truly appreciate their greatness, but hopefully this collection will serve as a fitting reminder as to why they will go down as one of the most memorable regional bands of that era.

This tape features every song The Ladies recorded during their career (repeating on both sides), remastered specifically for this release by Lance Kohler at Minimum Wage Studios in Richmond, VA. Full color layout in shrinkwrap with some great new cover art and some nice retrospective liner notes by HCPM freak Mark Shubert (Wasted Time/Mercy Killings/Beach Impediment Records). Limited to 150 copies.
