0073 - Ruined Families - S/T 7"

I think I picked up this 7" at the same time as I picked up the My First Failure LP, I wrote about a month back. I have no great excuse for the gap between posts.

This is a lovely release and has a special significance for me, as it was the first record I picked up that an OBI strip.

The sleeve itself is a nice 6-panel one, with the artwork from the front of the sleeve, carrying on throughout.

Sorry for my less than straight photos, but these were to show both the outside and the inside of the sleeve.

The back of the sleeve simply has the songs listed.


Side A -
1. Voidealism
2. You Will Become Like Your Father

Side B -
3. Bedroom Nihilist
4. Quiet

There's a double-sided insert too, with one side showing the credits and the logos of the labels involved  in the release. They were Halo Of Flies, Dog Knights Productions, Gardens and Adagio830.

I bought the black pressing. There were two pressings of this 7" -

1st pressing - 100 on Reddish clear and 400 on Black
2nd pressing - 300 on White

For those who are unfamiliar with Ruined Families, they're from Greece and they play punk, though it's hard to classify them. Have a listen to this record below via their bandcamp page -

You can get it as a name-your-price download directly from their bandcamp page, but if you want the physical record, head to the following places -

Halo Of Flies (USA) -
Gardens (Greece) -
Adagio830 (Germany) -

  1. That flower shaped split is really awesome, great stuff man

  2. You confused me for a while there, as you've commented on a record from another post. Thanks for checking out my record blog though.
