Hi everyone! new here, but have been an AFI fan since i first heard the leaving song part II back in 2003 on channel V (Music video channel in aus). Like most of us here, it was love at first listen and i was hooked. AFI were definitely the catalyst for me going through my angsty emo teenage phase. dressed in black, super tight jeans, band shirts and cut and dyed my hair to look like Jade’s. Having a curly afro didnt really work out so well haha. Sing the sorrow will always be my favourite album, but i have a lot of love for the older albums - especially Very Proud Of Ya. it was the first album i ever bought on vinyl and i gave it an absolute flogging. it kick started my love for vinyl. in hindsight, I was lucky this started when i was 14 working at a burger king earning $5.20 an hour and couldn’t afford to splurge. took me a few years to get this collection and i have had a hiatus on buying vinyl, but have recently got back into it. Admittedly i stopped listening to AFI’s music after DU so this was the extent of my collection. I do have a lot of stuff missing (mainly cds and 7 inches) as i left my stuff at my parents when i moved out and i just went back to Australia after 4 years abroad and it was nowhere to be found. Luckily all the 12" were found. I’ve moved from Australia and now live in Sacramento, CA and brought back all my vinyls with me.
I just wanted to get some clarification on the colours. Discogs is great, but i cant 100% tell what colours they precisely are. One of the VPOY looks like a teal but when i go to discogs my version looks a lot darker. Same with the AOD. I can’t tell if the SYMAOYE is mauve either?
I couldn’t find a light grey variant for ATASF either.
I also wanted to know if the ATASF navy blue is a rare variant as none have been sold?
I also have a unworn mint condition pair of AFI vans size 11 in the box still in australia. I couldnt fit them in my luggage. ive tried doing research on this but couldn’t find out how rare they are or how much they worth? any information would be greatly appreciated!
Lastly, I’ve seen AFI twice. in 2006 and in 2010. i was absolutely stoked when they played Love is a many splendored thing in 2010 and finishing with God called in sick today is one of my favourite live music moments ive witnessed!
