Calling All Fucked Up Superfans: 7″ Collection Contest

We were sitting around Matador World HQ the other day, talking about our favorite hardcore/punk/psychedelic/experimental band and their fans.  Fucked Up has some pretty hardcore ones (no pun intended), which makes sense; with a discography as epic as their live show, you too would tend to attract the fanatical types.  This got us to thinking: what do you get the Fucked Up fan who already has everything?  How about a custom made, one-of-a-kind copy of their new, only-available-at-fine-indie-retailers, Couple Tracks 7″ with YOU on the cover art?  If you win this contest, we will add your photo to the outlined area of the cover art above and ship this one of a kind record to your door.  Kinda cool, I know.

So how then do you get yourself immortalized on this 1 of 1 Couple Tracks 7″ cover?  Simple.  Gather together all your Fucked Up singles and display them in some way.  Sure, your collection can be laid out on your bed but we’ll look favorably upon people who go the extra mile here.  What’s the “extra mile”?  Hard to say.  Impress us.  Feel free to take inspiration from Extreme Ironing.  Prove yourself to be worthy of this honor.

Now take a picture of your collection and e-mail it to CoupleTracksContest@gmail.com.  Deadline for entries is midnight on February 6th.  How will a winner be chosen?  Like pornography, we will know it when we see it.  Completeness/a massive collection is important but a generally epic photo is also helpful.  Feel free to incorporate other acts of Fucked Up devotion: shirts, LPs, tattoos, children named Damian, etc.  Win this contest and you’ll surely be the envy of every other Fucked Up fan at their Fucked Up Saves Music SXSW showcase in March.
