Usman's Staff Pick: February 9, 2023

Hello and thanks for reading! I’m so busy today with Sorry State and my own label BPDT and unfortunately, I have don’t have the time or mental capacity to formulate a staff pick today! Instead of writing nothing, I thought I could at least write about what has been taking up so much of my time! I’m sure as you saw already, SSR has just announced the KORO re-issue! I am so excited for this. If you have the first reissue SSR did, don’t fuck up and think you can pass on this. To me, this reissue blows that one out of the water. The discs sound amazing, and the packaging is like a replica. So close that we had to stamp Sorry State inside since there is no mention of the label, haha. When Daniel first mentioned doing this once again, he agreed to give me and Jeff’s label our own special color, hehe. I guess it doesn’t make a lot of sense, but fuck it, Jeff and I think it’s so cool cos KORO fuckin’ rules. We spiced it up a bit by including an extra hand-stamped cover! We are very happy to announce this pre-order is available from us alongside the SCARECROW “Crisis EP” repress. Sorry State will have copies of those available on Monday online, but we will have some in-store starting Friday—so if you are a local, no need to buy it online from BPDT, just come on down to the shop! I’m not sure how many people reading this are that big of SCARECROW fans who also are looking for the EP still, but I will let you let you know since you are reading this; there will be a special cover available with the BPDT pre-order. That’s a secret though, so don’t tell anyone. Alright, back to stapling these Network of Friends zines! Cheers and thanks to everyone for the support!!
