Reissue: Antler Joe And The Accidents || Go Commercial!

41 years ago, Fort Myers (Florida) punk collective Antler Joe And The Accidents released their first and only EP, the three song Go Commercial! 7″ single. According to Break My Face “The EP was greeted with the expected enthusiasm: the drummer quit and locals didn’t give a shit.” But things change. By now it’s one of those single that is as rare as it is wanted – only 300 copies were pressed. To provide some stats, 265 Discogs users currently have Go Commercial! on their wantlist, and it’s been selling for prices between $500 (!) and $1200 (!!!).

Sufficient reason for Almost Ready Records, Last Laugh Records and Feral Kid Records do to a reissue of the record. It’s a no-brainer, if you love punk music this one should be part of your collection. Apparently, Antler Joe And The Accidents were inspired by the Sex Pistols, but I’ll take this single over anything Sex Pistols. Killer stuff!
