Various Losers - The Winners of the Vincent Price Beauty Contest (The Best of Repent Records Volume One). Repent 5432.


Hey! It's another LP! And because my scanner is too small and because I go to work when its dark and come home when its dark meaning I can't take a photo of the sleeve and also because the flash makes it look crap but mainly because no other loser has ever bothered making an image of the sleeve of this record and put it onto the web for me to steal ... there is no picture of the sleeve. It's pretty messy, anyway. So, instead, here's a picture of Mr. Michael Lucas drinking from what looks like a bottle of cough medicine from all that writing on the side of it. I lifted the picture. Sorry. I've done worse. Thanks, Toe Stubber. You've really captured the entrepeneurial spirit of Mr. J.P. Gutrock.
Just to prove I'm not totally lazy, here are the sleeve notes from the back. Hand-written by JPG himself.

"FROM THE DESK OF J.P. Gutrock
IT GIVE ME GREAT PLEASURE, ETC., 5 UP AND COMING, ETC, "TOUGH" (OR IS THIS EXPRESSION DATED? PLEASE CHECK - IF SO, CHANGE) PUNK/INDIE/ALTERNATIVE/NEW WAVE (CHECK DEMOGRAPHICS THIS WEEK & SELECT MOST SELLABLE GENRE) (THOUGHT - MAYBE "GARAGE"?). MENTION OTHER RELEASES BY THESE BANDS (REPENT RELEASES ONLY, OF COURSE), COUNT BACKWURDS (CHECK SP.) COURTESY SUMPP, WERTHEIMER MANAGEMENT GROUP, ETC. "DOING IT FOR THE KIDS." HOPE YOU ENJOY, ETC., OTHER FINE REPENT RELEASES (PLUG VULCANEERS LP ESPECIALLY). CLOSE WITH "ROCK ON" OR SOMETHING.
SHIRLEY - THE ABOVE ARE LINER NOTES FOR "V.P.B.C." - TYPE UP AND HAVE IT ON MY DESK TUESDAY A.M. ANY PLANS WEDNESDAY LUNCH?"
