Post Your AFI Collections


#800

I think Davey tells the whole story that in one of the turned out a punk episodes he did. They had promo shots done and everything and then the band that Frank was in…didn’t break up. And so Hunter stuck.

I don’t remember him mentioning any practice sessions (something about the band Frank was in finishing up a tour on the east coast after which they were going to break up), it seemed like a lot of it was talking on the phone? Or that’s the impression that I got from the interview.

What do you guys think about creating a thread (vault) detailing very early details and releases? NOT just the Dork, Behind the Times, etc, but also gathering as much information as possible on their reunion show up to their first official album ATASF?

@Snobgrass @dnlkdwll @sayasha @Ksf145 @insectpins

Ever since obtaining these early VHS tapes ( I don’t have them yet ) it’s made me want to dive into their early history and detail it… because, well… has it been done before other than maybe wikipedia?

#806

I will never be at the ranks of alot of collectors and I really just want 2 copies of each one to play and one to be signed and framed.


#807

I bought the signed Blaqk Audio bundle but I don’t plan on going nutty with these bundles like I did for AFI.

My wife and I will be going to a few BA shows though.

Since we’re all sharing, here’s my very unimpressive collection. I’m short on floor space, so left out standard CD versions of albums. Not pictured, but floating around: a few random posters, four DU “face” shirts (one per band member), my DF shirts (including one of the old DF store exclusives), a Blood tour shirt, and a random STS logo shirt. The shirt I did include is signed by Adam and Hunter.

Black Sails EP, black Crash Love, DU box set, and the unmastered CexCells (at least, I assume that’s what that is) are all sealed.

Thought I’d include my Burials lithograph and the cardboard envelope containing my Crash Love lithograph set, since neither of those have popped up in this thread that I’ve noticed :slightly_smiling_face:

I’m super jealous of your DF boxes. May sound dumb but I would pay for them if I found them on Ebay for a decent price.

Don’t downplay it, you have an awesome collection.

What you can’t see on the Burials box is that the shipping label was stuck directly over the eclipse :expressionless: I don’t know why whoever placed it couldn’t have picked one of the expansive empty spaces on either side, but I haven’t dared try peeling it off because I don’t want to damage the box any more than it already is.

And thanks :slightly_smiling_face: I know I don’t have a lot, but I’m proud of the few cool bits and pieces I’ve been able to get. One of the Medicate vinyls is #7, and I don’t see much in the way of lithos out in the wild. I realised after posting there’s a few other random bits and pieces I didn’t mention, but they’re strewn about everywhere.

I don’t know what the deal is with the CexCells disc, I bought it on eBay many a year ago but never really did any extensive research on it. As wildly curious as I am to know if the songs sound any different to the retail release, I don’t want to open it to find out :confused:


#811

I don’t know if I ever posted my Instagram account I’m using to document a new item in my collection every day. If not, here it is, follow me on this obsessive journey.


#812

Can anyone with a Burials radio promo confirm/check if the mix is the same as the retail?


#813

Looks awesome! I’ve been wanting to do that for the longest time, but never got around to it.
