I was reading my local daily newspaper at work yesterday, and there is an article about how a local company is going to start re-issuing out-of-print classic titles on vinyl only....

The company: DRASTIC PLASTIC started as a local Punk Record & T-Shirt store with some Metal back in the early 1980s....
then they began an international scale T-Shirt Printing Company called IMPACT MERCHANDISE and landed a bunch of big bands...

now they are taking the $ from that, as well as the contacts they have made with all these labels, and doing vinyl re-issues....
Among those mentioned in the article: The first MOTORHEAD LP on White Vinyl (same as it was originally pressed back in the 70s)... some EXPLOITED stuff... some obscure CLASH stuff, and then the article mentioned some Punk / Post-Punk shit I had never heard of...

Drastic Plastic reviving vinyl LPs
By Kevin Coffey
WORLD-HERALD STAFF WRITER
« Music

Add another record label to Omaha’s stable.
This one’s not trying to compete with Saddle Creek or Slumber Party’s indie rock bands. Instead, Drastic Plastic Records is focusing on reissuing vinyl titles that have gone out of print from rock, punk rock and post-punk bands.
Very few punk bands still have releases available on vinyl.
“The mission, essentially, is to bring back seminal titles into print on vinyl,” said Neil Azevedo, the label’s general manager.


Azevedo said the label is focusing on albums from two categories: out-of-print vinyl albums that are universally agreed upon as important, from bands such as the Clash, and albums that were influential at the time of their release but have since been forgotten, such as those from lesser-known groups Crispy Ambulance and Red Lorry Yellow Lorry.
The label is a subsidiary of Impact Merchandising, a T-shirt and merchandising company that grew out of the Drastic Plastic retail record store in the Old Market.
“The primary reason (for starting the company) was altruistic,” Azevedo said. “Our CEO Mike Howard is passionate about punk rock. He’s got this multimillion-dollar merchandising company that has probably the best distribution network in the country for getting merchandise to indie stores. Now we can bring these records to them.”
Drastic Plastic acquires the rights from a band or a band’s record label to distribute an album. Then, the label goes to a company such as Record Technology Inc. or A to Z Media to press the album. Using its distribution network, the label then pushes the album out to stores.
From now through January, the label will release albums from Crispy Ambulance, Section 25, the Exploited, Red Lorry Yellow Lorry, the Wake, the Damned and Motorhead.
Records from the Briggs, the Toasters, the Meatmen and Agent Orange are available now. Azevedo is working on deals to rerelease records from the Clash, the Gun Club and the Birthday Party, among others.
Initially, label employees thought orders for albums would be very small, but record stores are excited about getting titles that were out of print for years.
“The numbers on vinyl, although quite staggering to us indie-minded people, still are not fantastic to the major label mindset,” Azevedo said.
He used ’80s hard-core punk band Angry Samoans and seminal rock group the Clash as examples.
The Samoans’ “Back From Samoa” is a very important record to a hard-core punk fan. While those fans may purchase only 1,500 copies, a small number for a major label, it can still be profitable for a small company like Drastic Plastic.
As for the Clash, all but the band’s extremely popular “London Calling” are out of print. Major label Sony Legacy owns the rights but doesn’t want to spend the time or effort to put out the band’s other records on vinyl. Drastic will step in and reissue the albums, which Azevedo expects to be big sellers.
The label also plans to keep true to its punk rock roots, reissuing albums on colored vinyl and with their original artwork. Motorhead’s self-titled album and the Damned’s “Machine Gun Etiquette” were originally on white and colored vinyl, respectively, so their reissued versions will be as well.
Drastic Plastic has no plans to release records from new artists.
“For now, it is all reissue. It would be our dream of dreams to incorporate some original titles in there. But there is no plan at this time to get there,” Azevedo said. “I wouldn’t even characterize it as on the back burner. It’s maybe on the shelf below the stove somewhere.”

For those that don't know, the ex-drummer of Wastelander, Ian "The Pit Viper" Sugierski is in The Meatmen.

He never recorded any albums with them(yet?), but I figure that's a nice little fun-fact for all the Metalpunx here.
