reissue culture takes on the already-retro/revivalist/recyclical !

(what next in the postpunk revival revival? The Erase Errata Box Set? A deluxe expanded They Threw Us All in a Trench and Stuck a Monument on Top?)

and also, finally

 reissue culture takes on the not-much-cop-in-the-first-place-let's-be-honest !

(except that's hardly a new development)

I remember it getting enthusiastic reviews at the time, but (maybe due to distro issues) that didn't translate into it getting much traction via the venues that equaled sales (college radio rotation, word of mouth, actual CD bins, etc.).
