Fightstar – Waste A Moment 7″


Waste A Moment is the third single of Fightstar’s first album Grand Unification. Although I could pick other choices of singles from the record, I think the first few singles after Charlie Simpson parted from Busted needed to be quite heavy to mark a clear departure from said brit pop group. The whole album is amazing so there couldn’t be a “bad” choice of single. The songs strong point is it’s ability to go from the clean(er) melody driven verses to the distorted heavy chorus.

One thing that Fightstar has done really really well in my opinion is the art work. It’s always great to look at and reflects the music I think. I’m not sure what the Japanese says on the red umbrella but I’d love to find out. I could look it up… Maybe I will and I’ll edit once I’ve cracked the da vinci code.

The actual vinyl

Much like “Paint your target 7″” there is a sticker on the bottom left – this time it’s green. It’s funny that they write the title on the sticker. However with the small type on the sticker it’s hard to read “waste a moment” from a distance. On the back the case says it’s limited edition and gives a number. The green marble vinyl comes only in the slipcase and without a sleeve which is pretty standard for 7″. This marble is a lot easier to see and notice than the paint your target 7″. Also there seems to be black specks in my vinyl. Originally I freaked out when I saw it thinking that it was dirt and such – but just part of the vinyl.

My actual copy is number 1060. I’m not sure how many was printed. I did a quick search on google to no avail.


Side A – Waste a Moment

Side B – Minerva (Acoustic). This is a deftones cover. I wasn’t a big fan of Minerva originally. However after listening to the Deftones original I’ve grown quite fond of the Fightstar cover (not saying the deftones version was so horrid that I prefer the other version).


This was pretty cheap. I got it NEW for around $10 including shipping. I managed to pick it up on ebay from the same seller as the paint your target 7″.

Ebay – Costs around $10 to $15 INC postage.
