Numero Group: By The Numbers

Numero’s guide to Record Store Day 2013 (Part 3)

202.1Our third entry into the RSD2013 madness is an LP’s worth of recordings from the band that would ultimately give way to Unwound: Giant Henry. Our original plan with Unwound and RSD was an elaborate box of all their singles, but the packaging just couldn’t come together quick enough. Justin Trosper had the idea of including much of Giant Henry’s 1991 recordings in the first of the four Unwound box sets, but we collectively felt that Big Baby made a nice prequel. The 13 song LP was cut from the original tape (plus a single live cut), and captures the band in their Bleach-ed out halcyon days on a single slab of marbled grey vinyl in an edition of 1050. Taking a cue from the scene they came kicking and screaming out of, we’ve hand screened and stamped the jackets. Stoughton Printing fabricated an all black tip on jacket that has been slathered in silver ink in three variations: The childhood photos of Brandt Sandeno, Vern Rumsey, and Justin Trosper. The accompanying insert was printed on 80lb black paper in silver ink, with one side taken up by a photo of the band shot by a young Kathleen Hanna and the other filled with reflections for singer/guitarist Justin Trosper.
