  1. I Think I'm Gonna Quit The Hobby

    I had a habit of picking up things semi blindly that I've kind of kicked into touch this year. I try to avoid imports as a whole just because the shipping is extortionate and that is a real bummer when you drop $45 for a record that is $20 and then it comes damaged. I don't see my collection as an investment at all even though I do have some choice pieces that could command a decent price but in reality I'm too lazy to sell anything. If I was in your shoes getting a 50% damage rate and arbitrating re-ordering and refunds all for records that will sit on a shelf un-played I'd see the logic in quitting. That being said I was between record players for a long while and stopped as a result only to miss some items that are now unreasonably priced white whales for me. I guess if I was in your shoes I'd take a break until I've sorted out a new rig. Keep an eye on some of your big faves though because sod's law dictates as soon as you take that break your number one artist will release something pure gold you'll have to chase when you pick this hobby back up.
  2. Went to a twin peaks pub quiz last night in London and our team "Leland's little angels" won a £70 bottle of champagne. My head is hurting this Friday morning.
  3. Heyyy yoooooooooo!

    anyone else find it kinda funny he claimed "fishing is life" just before calling someone a fish ass skank?
  4. AMAZON U.S. Vinyl Deals & More Thread

    Is Stadium Arcadium the one with that song about California? Asking for friend.
  5. I'm not putting it on the band it was obviously down to the pressing plant but Anti seemed pretty poorly organised and Kings Road have a bad rep all of their own. I mean stacking up any label against Deathwish is always gonna end up with a harsh comparison. Either way I'll happily get whatever retail variant lands in stores.
  6. So far I'm with all of you on most of this. Song is great even though I don't think it'll beat "Roads To Judah" for me because nothing so far has, thats more personal preference than criticism. The band do get a lot of unsolicited hate because the overly hyperbolic media reception of sunbather enraged the more fragile members of the black metal community who can't have their subgenre rise in popularity without feeling like they are going extinct. Artwork not really to my taste or fitting with the music but whatever. Anxious about pre-ordering after the New Bermuda/Anti debacle. I'll likely go for an instore copy just to save the heartache, not fussed about colours.

    In for a Bovine Joni
  8. Flenser Releases

    Interested in new Mamaleek for sure. Also Drowse is my front runner for AOTY so far although I'll admit I haven't really picked up much in 2018 n there's still a lot on the horizon. The 2nd press of Below The House is very pretty and I can't wait to see Thom play Robert Smith's Meltdown fest.
  9. Po : Biffy Clyro - mtv unplugged

    Missed out on the signed version, but snagged anyway. Nice to see Drop It on the track list. I doubt I'll be able to beat the insane demand for that Royal Albert Hall date but I'll damn sure try.
  10. PO: Cave In - Until Your Heart Stops

    Great album, already have a 2013 version and I'm just not flush enough to double dip even though this is for the worthiest of causes. If however the speculation in here is correct and some other stuff comes out that I don't already have I will happily chase my zozobra bundle with another hydra head order.
  11. Black Metal Discussion Thread

    I swear I've seen pictures on this very website of stores trashing stock from bands who've been outed as dodgy. I imagine some labels do the same.
  12. Heyyy yoooooooooo!

    Samesies. Fond memories of confusing the hell out of him last time he was around.
  13. Best Outside Sleeve For 50s and 60s records

    If it's a display piece I'd definitely go for a record frame, they are easy to come by these days and you can then mount it on your wall. If you want to display but also play it you'll have to suck it up and buy a pack of 25-50 sleeves. Avoid thick PVC as this can cause outgassing over time which will degrade playback. Or you can try the "Stress On The Sky vinyl owner approved method" and laminate the entire thing and stick to the wall with blue tack for that extra dazzle factor.

    Bought the lot sans test presses. Absolutely crushing circumstances.
  15. The Mondo Records Thread - Show Posts Anyway?

    guess Philip GlASS is a shoo in then
