Postcard From Armageddon, has to be the bast way to start and old skool hardcore set ever. It will quickly grab everyones attention. And how can you go wrong with "HOCUS POCUS" said by Jack Nicholson, in Witches of estwick. lovely...

This record has caused some confusion on discogs. First there were two releases. One on the Indisc label and one on the Earprotector label. But there's been only one record released. The problem is that nobody knows exactly on which label.

Because both records from Hocus Pocus (Here's Johnny and Hocus Pocus) were actually not the type of sound which the Indisc label normally released, the labelmanagers came up with the idea to introduce a new label especially for the releases which were made by Hocus Pocus (and later on Sauerkraut as well). But nobody knows which was the first release on the earprotector label (even the producers of this record don't).

But if you take a good look at the Indisc releases and the Earprotector releases then you can notice a difference between these two labels:

1. Indisc never used white vinyl (however it has one, maybe more releases which were released as coloured vinyl) and the Earprotector label did.
2. Indisc always used picture sleeves, or sleeves with a sticker on it, Earprotector didn't (only the younger releases released in 1996 or later came in a picture sleeve). The first release from Hocus Pocus (actually Vicious Delicious) has a coloured sleeve, but the Here's Johnny release has a standard black sleeve (I never saw another one).

So if I'm right, the Here's Johnny record could/should be the first Earprotector release.
