One thought on “Eric Gaffney Albums

  1. I ordered Face Of Man and Sore Foot Weirdy back in 2011 off of his Anglefire page. I saw that he signed yrs just like mine. I’m from the same area as Eric and was introduced to him a couple years ago while I was doing record and show reviews so we set up an interview that I turned into an article. I tried to get some sites interested in it but nobody wanted to bother. Pitchfork told me that they didn’t really have an interest in the “other guy from early 90’s Sebadoh.” I ended up self publishing it on my blog and it surprisingly got lots of hits and in the following months both Pitchfork and Noisey did their own stories on him. After all of that I reached out to him only to find out that he blocked me from Facebook haha! I guess he didn’t like my article. Check it out if you want.

    Your site is awesome btw. Didn’t know there were collectors like me out there.
