All are OOP unless "in print" is defined as copies that Tim still has in his stash.

Discogs does not currently list EWR-003 on the main 18 Wheeler label page. It's the Hypnolovewheel Sybil EP (2 x 7"). It is, however, listed on the band's page and as the only listed release on the "Eighteen Wheeler" discogs label page.  In both of those cases, it's incorrectly cited as EWR-004.  (On the actual sleeve of the record, it's listed as EW-003, no R.)

I'd like to find out what title is EWR - 010.

Thanks for the info! I wonder if Tom has any interest in reissuing any of these? I believe I could be of some assistance...

I really like James McNew's music a lot. Checked out the re-released stuff (thinking about parting with some euros for these) and there is this little tidbit about the start of 18 Wheeler, maybe common knowledge to many of you.

"Eventually I played some of the things I'd been recording for my fellow fanzine writer and friend, Tom. He suggested I release a Dump EP... and then he started a label, and released it as catalog #001. We then made one of the great early 90's decisions: to hand-color all 1,000 sleeves ourselves. As payment for the single, Tom gave me a Casio CT-60, which appeared on every subsequent Dump release (its first use was on "Bunny Boy," from the I LIKE WALT! compilation EP, included here). "

You can get those Dump re-issues from insound.com.  I've grabbed "Superpowerless" so far, really good stuff.
