James Dean was a four-piece emo/screamo band from Newcastle, Australia. They released a s/t CDR and a 7″ and broke up in 2008.
This 7″ is stupidly limited, here’s the story:
This is a second version of the James Dean 7”. Just over 200 were pressed originally by Lawrence of Hey Presto!, 103 of these were released (the rest were planned to be part of a box set later on but this didn’t happen). Out of the remainder, 50 then got lost in the post, leaving 62 which is what this new version consists of.
This Euro press was made by Internationale Records (the release by Hey Presto has different artwork). It’s hand-numbered and mine is #62/62. I guess I got pretty lucky with that, eh? I don’t think they will show up that often… Two inserts in this one, of which one (the bottom one) is the press info that I posted above.
