I got more into collecting the past few years and scouring the world (literally), especially starting around 2015 when TGOS came out and there were hints that it may be the swan song. I first heard of the P as a freshman in college on the east coast and they're a big reason I was inspired to move to California. Fast forward 15 years. These are pretty much all the direct releases from the group/Thes; haven't gone after comps or features.
A lot of doubles (triples?) but many of these have stories/memories:
- Thes sending me a mixtape and Christmas letter in 2009
- Finding my first copy of ...Or Stay Tuned vinyl in Sydney just hanging on a wall on vacation when nobody in the States had a copy for sale
- Some guy in Germany having a sealed copy of Original Sounds & Tracks
- DJ Pizzo selling me his last personal copy of Redheaded Stepchild when I randomly reached out
- Finding sealed UK pressings of Stepfather in London
- Being fast and getting some rare grails like the Beer Mug 10YOTO, TGOS 2 test press, and Carried Away Instrumentals directly from Thes
- My girlfriend giving me her copy of Big Sky Shakedown after the SF show on a rainy street corner on our way home so I had doubles
- Still have the girlfriend (and the vinyl)
What can I say? I guess I got Carried Away.
