The Ultimate Warriors 'Our Gimmick Is Wrestling' LP
Mixing blast beats, scathing scene commentary, dai nippon, and more
obscure wrestling references for you not to get, the Ultimate Warriors
blaze through 20 tracks of "cool 3 years ago" hardcore. Without a doubt
their most challenging and varied effort to date, the Warriors pull no
punches and keep listeners on their toes, reaching absurd speeds only
to twist around to a crushing breakdown, not unlike Mr. Pogo stabbing
his sickle, maniacally yet controlled, into the arm of Shadow WX.
The first pressing of this 12" record consists of 200 copies on black
vinyl, all with plain white center stickers. 166 copies come inside old
LP jackets, complete with the old LP still inside the cover. They also came
with a full-color insert. 21 copies came inside jackets for a Jughead's
Revenge album, with a sticker on the front cover as the only information.
13 copies came inside white 12" single jackets, stamped with pink and green
wizards, without any sort of identifiable information with the record.
Of the 200, some have writing on the center stickers. There were 10 test
pressings, the vinyl identical to the regular press. They all had elaborate
handmade covers, a ticket to an Ultimate Warriors show, and a 'Nazo Crew'
