Euro Store Exclusives

Meerhout, Belgium.

Each year on the last weekend of April, the small Belgian village of Meerhout becomes home to Europe’s biggest punk and hardcore event, the Groezrock festival. All the participating bands and a lot of labels sell their merch in this pleasant open-air festival atmosphere. FAT have been a fixture with their own booth since 2015 and have been releasing Groezrock themed 10″ compilations for the last couple of years.

In 2017 however, Fat Wreck Chords had the brilliant idea of no longer just releasing special store exclusives for their store in San Francisco, but also for their merch booth at Groezrock. No more 10″ comps, these are proper FAT releases with their own signature Euro Store center labels. You can also find other, similar characteristics that apply to the original Fat Store exclusives – a different (exclusive) color and a very low pressing number (mostly around 100). They aptly called it ‘Fat Euro Store’ and these are the records available from there…
