Inconsiderate Me..

I love this record, I love this band. Horror Show are one of the two bands that I actually really care about collecting all of their records and making my life complete, well nearly.

This record came up on Ebay a month ago? As soon as I saw it I knew it was going to be mine, I was digging deep and bidding hard, even though times were tough. I haven't seen one of these come up on Ebay in a long time, maybe even years?

I won the record for $20, bargain, considering I put a bid in for $60. The same record just sold in the Deathwish auctions for $40 or around that.

Horror Show - Our Design [Red /100]

I don't think I'm ever going to see a copy of the Ink and Dagger rip of this album though, but I can always hope for one to turn up somewhere. Hopefully in Oxfam while I'm looking for Ken Dodd records.

so close, but so far...

This post makes me want to cry.

I was so close to completing my Geeks - Everytime We Fall collection. I found a copy of the pre-order /100 and was so stoked to have it coming in the post. Anyway I got the package and it had a HUGE crease/bend in the right hand corner, so I knew the record was going to be fucked. Anyway I'll let the pictures do the talking..

The Geeks - Everytime We Fall [Pre-order /100]

This is the first time I've had a record damaged in the post. I guess it's going to be a while till I see another one of these come up for sale, especially for the price I got it for.


someOk so next up, is the Mass Vs Cali release from Heart in Hand records, there first ever release. It has 4 awesome bands on it - The Mass side has The Effort and Last Lights, while the Cali side has Until Your Heart Stops and Rotting Out. I ordered all 3 colours and gave me a test press too!

I love the amount of effort that has gone into producing the artwork the cover is silk screened in a simple two colour print and folds out with a section for each band, containing a live shot and their logo/name.

V/A - Mass. vs Cali [Test press/ 13/15]
V/A - Mass. vs Cali [Pre-Order /Silk Screened /Black / 24/50]
V/A - Mass. vs Cali [Black /150]
V/A - Mass. vs Cali [Clear Red /300]

Stop sleeping on these bands! Especially Last Lights who've had it rough the last few months.


Please some other awesome bands you HAVE to check out if you like ambient/acoustic stuff:



My Grandad sent me a link to an Ebay auction where someone was selling over a 100 records and two holders in the same town as me. Apparently their Grandad had died and left all these records and they had no idea what to do with them. There was no picture and a few hours left with no bids at £10. I needed some decent record holders so took a gamble and bid £10, won the auction.

Most of the records are film soundtracks, country, old pop 50s/60s etc. If anyone is interested in seeing a list let me know as I've made one. Aslong as you pay the postage you can have whatever you want, otherwise I'll give them to charity or melt them in the oven.

Trash Talk - Ballwashing 101

I don't even like this band, at all. Can't understand all the hype and ballwashing behind them.

Anyway I ordered the record because of the story behind it. Some crazy Italian hardcore kids decided to bootleg it for some reason [god knows why]. They sent 25 of them to Six Feet Under records who then sold them all. The matrix's have all been scratched off. I've tried searching on Ebay, Google and various forums but haven't been able to find anymore info on who bootlegged them from and where they were for sale.

I guess I'll just flip it on Ebay to get some money to complete some of my other collections.

Trash Talk - Walking Disease [Red /Bootleg /100]

RZL DZL baby

This came last September and totally forgot to blog it.

Everyone has seen the record a million times now but it's an awesome record and I love the fact time and effort has been put into the artwork/layout, not the first band to do the whole pizza record/box idea but still it's cool.

I've heard they're releasing a new 7" on Lockin' Out this year too. Not much else to say except another great release from Lockin' Out, band will get huge here this year..

Huge update

It's been months since the last update and its going to take me awhile to catch up on all the records I've got since the last update. I'll start with whatever pictures I find first, so these aren't in any order.

I picked these records up at a local record shop that had a sale on, pretty much everything was half price so got these for £1.50 each. Nothing special or rare, I just had to have them because they were so cheap. Plus its always nice to listen to songs you love on vinyl.
