Bacon Towne Records Release Number 008
On Friday the 13th, August 13, (duh) 2010 it became official, Bacon Towne Record's 8th release hit the streets in glorious fashion. The record, "Full Time" by FLORIDA HARDCORE LEGENDS Murder Suicide Pact was formally released to the masses. The show was at the Pegasus Lounge in Tampa and MSP was one of 4 bands on the bill that night. The night began with Trench Foot, crusty, adolescent and awesomely energetic as always. A forgettable pop-punk band from South Florida came next before giving way to MSP around midnight. MSP drilled through a 12-song-set, ending with an encore. The set list included Downtime, I'm Not Cleaning Up This Mess, Do It or Don't, Pretty Good/Pretty Bad, Hit Me In The Nuts, I Respect You and All of Your Body Parts (BTR 008), My Own Poison, Road Rage, Stronger Than Dirt, Pity Part, Full Time (BTR 008) and Heavy Hand. Since I have been listening to the 6-songs from the new BTR release pretty much non-stop for the past 3 months, it was absolutely AMAZING to hear a couple of them live! This is the first new vinyl release for Murder Suicide Pact since the "Lobotomy Kit" 7 inch on Burrito Records (BR 009) which was released back in December 1998. Just in case you are interested and don't actually own this record, we do have copies in our deestro... Anyway, even though they have playing live all over the state, they toured South America and are regulars at all Brandon/Tampa Bay hardcore shows, they went A LONG TIME between releases. After so much time it was funny that this Friday the 13th Record Release Extravaganza was for not one, but 2 new releases! Aside from "Full Time", the 6-song 7 inch on Bacon Towne, they formally released another 7 inch that night called "Do It Or Don't" (GPR 55) on Give Praise Records. MSP played 4 songs off of this 5-song 7 inch in their set. With half of the songs from their set list being released that night it was even more amazing and awesome to see all of the kids in the crowd singing along to every song. Thank you power of the interweb! The next chance to see the amazing live show that is Murder Suicide Pact is September 11th in St. Pete, Floriduh - more details coming soon! We here at Bacon Towne hope to trade with Give Praise soon so we can carry the complete Murder Suicide Pact catalog. For now, we have plenty of copies of "Full Time" that are hot off the press.
