Insane week so far. It has just been so busy.
The Reductions are flying out, but we still have some left. I would not sleep on it! Lots of killer Noise, Black Metal, Reggae, Punk, Drum n Bass…..
Some big titles have been slashed in half – loads of titles that are like £40 on Discogs are out for like a fiver.
Only wrote one of these the other day but loads has come in and I missed the one last week so here we go:
- Scott bought a big collection (500 titles) of really killer LPs and 12s. Loads of great DNB, UK Hip Hop, lots of Warp titles – including Aphex Twin, The Bug, Ceephax Acid Crew, Squarepusher, Autechre, B12; rare Jungle bits, UKG. Condition is a little iffy at times but the titles are top notch. There is also a really rare Scratch Perverts comp – with a Banksy sleeve. These are basically selling as soon as they hit the floor.
- I bought in a huge pile of records and CDs from this nice dude yesterday. Loads and loads of killer Hardcore, Straightedge, Metalcore and Emo. Bands like Title Fight, Bane, Turnstile, Chain Of Strength, Youth Of Today, Warzone, Converge, Carry On, Champion, Down To Nothing, Violent Reaction, Glassjaw, Brand New….loads of colour vinyl titles. Mostly in really amazing condition.
- Very exciting future collection on the horizon: a very nice Grandfather and Grandson came in the shop yesterday with about 40 60s, 70s and 80s LPs. Generally left-of-centre titles – but all pretty much as new. Super, insanely-clean titles from people like Freda Payne, Jimmy Webb, Pet Shop Boys, Slade, Manu Dibango, John Lennon, The Beatles, Linda Lewis, Rage Against The Machine, David Bowie, King Sunny Ade, George Harrison, Johnny Harris…I cannot speculate enough how clean these are.
- From one of our regular sellers we had a nice new batch of LPs – and as well as all of the new titles there were lots more Ethnographic LPs including some harder-to-find Hugh Tracey recorded LPs.
RSD is a week today – and as I said the other day – we have ordered so much stuff this year. Purely because theres actually some wicked bits out this year. Soho is gonna be a laugh on Saturday I reckon – come down and have a beer!
This week we got a Top Ten from the legendary Alex Tsigdinos! Puggy Boy Alex played some records with our very own Kenny White in Dublin a few weeks ago – and was raging apparently!
