Bumping for ease of reference if anyone is interested... wonder if the discography list will ever need any more updates. :|

If you'd add represses and such you could add last years remastered Strap It On and Meantime vinyl reissues from ORG Music.
But in terms of new stuff...well, I hope but wouldn't bet on it. I am pretty sure there will be something in the future, and if it is only an updated 'best of' collection Unsung II. Or maybe a decent live recording of the upcoming Meantime tour.

I just updated it to include the "Crazy Night" thing. But yeah, I wasn't going the route of including pressings, etc... more to list the original release years, track listings, and band lineups of each album, plus the compilations and b-sides, singles, etc.

A best of collection for Helmet 2.0 could be cool, and so could an official live recording of a Meantime anniversary tour show. I probably wouldn't bet on any more new material either, at this point. Page could have one more Helmet album in him, but I think that would be the most (and I think he may have told BA he intended to release another album).

Nothing I heard about. Still hoping it is true what Page said about the Jazz album followed by a new Helmet album (viewtopic.php?f=1&t=4353)...

Oh, I actually meant that I bumped it because I had just made some new updates. Cleaned up the flow a bit and added some notes about some of the singles being available on iTunes, such as the remastered Betty b-sides.

Three AmRep 1991 releases each had the title "Ugly American Overkill":

1) A VHS tape containing two live performances each from four bands: Helmet, Tar, God Bullies and Surgery. Helmet's two songs were "Bad Mood" and "He Feels Bad." I posted this on YouTube if you haven't seen it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qn3ULAKOeJ4 This videotape seems to be extremely rare, as I've never found any documentation about it anywhere on the web.

2) A 7" vinyl containing one song each from that same four bands (the bands toured Europe in May 1991; these items commemorated that little tour). The Helmet track was "Taken" which later appeared on the "Born Annoying" comp. Incidentally, the Tar track "Compaction" was always one of my favorite Tar songs. Here's a link: http://www.discogs.com/Various-Ugly-Ame ... se/1552486

3)A CD sampler that seems to have been released only in Europe. Helmet's track was "Make Room"; I'm guessing it was just the same version that appeared on "Strap It On" but I can't be sure. Here's a link: http://www.discogs.com/Various-Ugly-Ame ... ase/386477

I'd use this link for the sampler, as it refers to both the CD and the LP.

Oh boy, I sound like I become a stickler for details like some guys on Discogs are...I love Discogs but sometimes it's too much. ("Please remove 'Black' from your submission, if no color is indicated it implies that the record s black" - followed by a 'all wrong' vote. :roll: )
