The many flavors of: Gang Green – PMRC Sucks EP

As if there wasn’t enough variations of their first EP to keep you busy, when Gang Green put out a second EP, this time a 12″, it ended up having even more variations than their first one, and it was released on two different labels.

The first pressing was released on HIM Records and came on black vinyl.

It was then picked up by Taang! Records and reissued with a new sleeve and on a handful of different vinyl colors.

and “Acapulco Gold vinyl” of which there was only 200 pressed.

After that, it went out of print. I am pretty sure there was 500 of each color except for the gold one, which states on the cover it was limited to 200 copies. By the way, that is Aimee Mann from Til Tuesday on the cover of the Taang! version, as this records’ gimmick was that it was a cover of “Voices Carry” backed with a couple original tunes.

So aside from the test pressing, there you have every variation of this EP.


  • It was actually a pretty damn good cover of Voices Carry if I remember. I have one of the gold ones – but then I could care less what color it is or how many copies were made.

  • Why mentioning what, Guy (assuming you are talking to me)? That is was a pretty damn good cover of Voices Carry or whether I could care less what color it is?

  • The clear version was actually ‘windowpane’ (according to the sticker). As the record played, your view kind of shimmied, like you were looking through wavy glass while moving. Kind of cool but I think I sold it. The version of ‘Voices Carry’ was ok, but not scorching.

  • I would like to hear that cover. Anyone know if Gang Green will be touring again? I know they were on the road with Dropkick Murphys last fall.

  • Nuns of Punk include Chuck Stilphen and Glen Stilphen from the Alcohol era of Gang Green and Erich Thaler from Stompbox. Chuck Stilphen is the co-writer of the punk classic “Alcohol”.
