DISTRIBUTOR NOTES

Like so many others, they could have slipped through the cracks. But Mark E. Robinson and crew had other plans. It was the summer of 1987 and I was buying records for a wholesale distributor at the time [Caroline Distritubtion]. It was the same year that I got test pressings of things like the debut albums from Camper Van Beethoven, Galaxie 500, Replacements, and Unrest's "Tink of S.E." [This album was also released with no title and with various and miscellaneous titles].

At the time Mark knew that the distributor that I worked for had a label that put out (among other artists) Pussy Galore records. Hence, my test pressing didn't have a title or a press kit. I loved it! Especially the cover of "21st Century Schizoid Man." I called the phone number to order my usual 25 copies of a new release by an unknown band. Mark's mom answered the phone and put him on. At this point in my life I'd worked retail and wholesale for the past five years and had dealt with quite a few characters already. My cynicism melted away as I talked to Mark. He was genuinely shocked and elated that somebody wanted to buy the record. Up until this point he had only made home tapes and one 45. He didn't know how much he was supposed to charge for the albums. I told him that we usually paid $5.25. Silence and shock dribbled up the line from Arlington. Mark blurted out that he'd been selling them to stores for $2.50!

This switched on the light bulb in my head again. We agreed that if he sold them to me for the same price that we'd sell 'em to stores at $3.50 and people could buy it in a store for $5.00. So I ordered 50 copies, got off the phone, and forgot about it. When the box showed up the next week we were thrilled to see that every cover was different. Mark had to press a minimum of 1,000 pieces. He had a party and gave out arts & crafts materials and he and his friends decorated our 50 copies. By the time the records showed up the whole sales staff was stoked from listening to my copy in the office all week. All I had to do was walk into the middle of the salesmen's room, hold up a few of the covers and tell them the title of the LP and they were off! We sold all of them by the end of the day and the next morning I called Mark to order 100 more. I guess he had to have another party!

I collected about 15 of my favorite covers carefully culled from each shipment. He had to do a second pressing. Sometimes I'd have him send blank covers and have artistically inclined friends who were into the record decorate those. Of course, by this time we had to see them live. I booked a couple of shows for them in NYC at CBGB's and that was the beginning of that. I guess this could be the liner notes for that first LP, but this story is why you're holding this reissue in your hands. After this period the next step was to become labelmates with Pussy Galore and sign to Caroline Records. Over the next two years Malcolm X Park and Kustom Karnal Blaxploitation were recorded and released. It would be four more years before we released "Imperial f.f.r.r." on my (then) newly formed No. 6 record label. This is the first time either of these records have been available on CD. Hope you enjoy them as much as we did making them.

- Terry Tolkin, 1997.


ET CETERA

"How did he lose part of his finger? He took his sword and cut off his own finger. That really impressed the Japanese" -from "Dago Red" lyric printed on the back cover.

"Thank you: Terry Tolkin, Jack Sheehy, 13th Street Beat Generation, d.c. space, Kramer, Tim Moran, the real WMUC-FM, Lawrence + Bells Of..., Chris Thomson, Mr. + Mrs. Krauth, Bill Hanky, Bastro, Scott Larson, Calvin Johnson, No. 6 Records, West End Cafe, and all our friends........"

The cover art was one of the hundreds of one-of-a-kind covers created for Unrest's debut vinyl LP [Teen-Beat 14].

In a photo on the innersleeve, Mark's grandmother, Christine Ferrer, is holding Shimmy-Disc release 'Car Radio Jerome' by Rev. Fred Lane.

Noise N.Y. was located on West Broadway. Band photos were taken at the West Broadway subway station.

Percy Mayfield wrote and recorded 'Stranger in My Own Hometown'. It was made popular by Elvis Presley.

Kiss' Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons originally wrote and recorded 'Strutter' in 1973.

Ethan Buckler originally wrote and recorded 'Movie Star' in 1989 with his band King Kong. It is retitled here as "So You Want to Be a Movie Star", a nod to Unrest's first single, "So You Want to Be a Rock'n'Roll Star", a cover version of the Byrds song.

An image of (Mark Robinson's then roomate) Gina Pala's eyes in a rear-view mirror is on the bottom right-hand corner of the back cover.

Mark paternal grandfather, Edwin Allin Robinson, is pictured with a fireman's helmet on the innersleeve.
