Various - 3,2,1.....Action! 7"

One of my most prized records, and I was pretty lucky to pick this up for next to nothing considering it contains a track by pre-Shins band Flake Music. No idea how many copies were pressed - there's barely any info about it on the net apart from a mention on The Shin's wiki page. It also seems that the website for record label Pocket Protector Records ceases to exist, so it's all really quite mysterious. Anyway, it's a totally awesome compilation of noisy pop featuring a few good bands which apparently didn't last since this release.

P.s. The track 'Red' by Flake music is exclusive to this compilation, so you won't find it anywhere else!
