Wake Up!

I've been having a blast lately, throwing money at some cheap Hardcore records from the early 00's. It is funny how easy it is to forget about some great bands from a certain period, especially when your attention is continually pulled in other directions. Going back and revisiting some of these records has been a great reminder and has rekindled a desire to chase multiple pressings from a time when I was only buying CDs.

Wake Up Call were a local band from Maine, and as this state doesn't really have a strong history of Hardcore bands, Wake Up Call were definitely a diamond in the rough. The band didn't get the attention they deserved, but their One Eye Open 7 inch from 2006 can go toe to toe with some of the other heavy hitters from that year.

When I was picking up a couple of One Up 7 inches from a Discogs seller, I noticed that they had a copy of the Wake Up Call demo 7 inch, and I scooped it up. The preorder version comes with a special cover, and is limited to 30...and for $5, this was deal too good to pass up.
