FISTPLATE1 was a private-press 12" which was manufactured shortly after the September 2004 release of the NCL TRAX v2.0 compilation (FISTCD06).
There were 5 white label copies in existence, and the record was used specifically for live Bloody Fist-related DJ performances throughout Europe in late 2004 and early 2005, following the permanent closure of the label.

In early 2014, a visit to Sound Base Music in Leipzig, Germany (the Worldwide BF distributor) unexpectedly turned up the original surviving 10-year-old master metal work for FISTPLATE1. During this frantic rummaging at Sound Base, some unused boxes of generic OLD ROPE (the reissue label) sleeves were also unearthed. After a cup of tea and a sit-down, Sound Base agreed to help mark the 10 year anniversary of Bloody Fist's demise with a limited commercial release of FISTPLATE1, pressed from the original metal master. This 12" will form the second in the Old Rope BF series, and will be released in a strictly limited quantity at precisely 3PM AEST on 1st October 2014.

The record itself contains 3 tracks previously released on NCL TRAX v2.0 by Hedonist, Memetic and Paulblackout. A hitherto unreleased vintage Hedonist track from around 1998 also appears, as well as several strategically placed scratch samples and the instrumental version of 'Cut Session' by Overcast (which originally appeared at the end of the Mark N 'Under Sufferance' mix CD on Epileptik). All tracks are previously unavailable on wax.

Please note the digital version doesn't contain any of the aforementioned scratch samples or other extraneous material found on the 12".

All 12" and digital pre-orders will be released on 1st October 2014.
