WILLIAM MARTYR 17 - celebration of love (7") File Thirteen #14 & Bloodlink #14 1995

This is one of my favourites concerning the second wave in the 90ies. There might be many bands who were better musically, but I got stuck with this one due to the time I got it, my circumstances in life, the sadness that is inherent here and the nice packaging (one of the best among all those cut and paste, flier overkill emo core 7"'s). Same goes for my sis (can you rip the Towncraft compilation, please?).
William Martyr 17 ended too soon with their drummer dying at the age of 16 in a car accident. In remembrance of him File Thirteen released a compilation later1. I am quite sure that one or two records later they would have been huge but in this case those two songs just give us a feeling what their later stuff might have sounded. Both songs ended up on nearly all mixtapes I did with comparable bands.

Maybe you like it like I did.

Does anyone know where I can purchase the discography CD?

Here is a quite nice example how an online documentation should be like:

William Martyr 17 @ Towncraft Movie

While many labels, regional scene pages etc. remove their former discography sections, delete informations, just doing an empty myspace page now or former internet documentations just disappear, they do a great job.

Members of William Martyr 17 joined Soophie Nun Squad and Hundred Years War.

1 Recently I read some comments about this compilation being pathetic but those gumbos just read way to much Heidegger.
