Vancouver label Porterhouse Records has announced plans to reissue two classic West Coast punk records this spring: Germs' (MIA) The Complete Anthology and Young Canadians' Hawaii EP will both see vinyl pressings in the coming months.

Released in 1979, Young Canadian's Hawaii EP arrives on vinyl next month. Limited to 250 pressings, the 40th anniversary edition reissue will be available on clear orange vinyl. Likewise, Germs' 1993 anthology, the (MIA) double-LP, will be released on black and blue wax for its first-ever vinyl pressing.

The long-out-of-print Hawaii EP from Vancouver's Young Canadians is being reissued on clear orange vinyl in a boutique pressing of only 250 copies. The Bob Rock-produced record includes all original artwork and an Easter egg insert

Additionally, in a worldwide debut, the Germs
(MIA) hits vinyl for the very first time. The initial pressing of The Complete Anthology will consist of a two-LP set featuring black and blue vinyl with reverse labels. The package will also include the original liner notes.

Hawaii arrives in physical form on April 17 and (MIA) will be available on May 29.
