5th March 2017 – Hungerford

We called into Hungerford and their two charity shops and I did manage to spend a whole pound on a record that I’ll probably never even listen too, but I decided I wanted to pick it up anyways.

From 1971, the soundtrack to the Walt Disney movie Peter Pan.  Featuring such classics as “You Can Fly”.  I know I didn’t need this but it was only a quid after all…

3rd March 2017 – Travis Cut addition!

I bloody love Travis Cut.  I’ve had this album on CD for many, many years and thought it really was about time I looked to see if I could pick up a copy on vinyl.  Checking out Discogs there was one for sale in the UK and I made the seller an offer, which they accepted.

“Serial Incompetence” is a really great UK punk rock album from the 90’s, sadly it’s only 8 tracks though. But it’s ruddy ace!  So pleased to have this in the collection.

27th February 2017 – Recent 7” additions

In the last week or so a couple of 7” singles have arrived into the collection. Now I am trying to really limit the 7” singles that I pick up.  A format I previously favoured but space just isn’t permitting me to really keep adding them.  But every now and then I do pick one up here and there.

First up is the debut 7” by London’s Werecats.  Now we’ve played with this lot and they’re top people, so to see them get a 7” is so cool.  They play a mix of pop punk, Ramones core, dual female vocals, they’re bloody great.  The only downside is that this is standard black vinyl, would have been nice coloured.  But a cracking release none the less.  On Monster Zero Records.

And it’s on Discogs https://www.discogs.com/Werecats-My-Boyfriends-A-Werewolf/release/9586619

The other new addition is the TNS Records tour 7”.  Featuring Wonk Unit, Revenge Of The Psychotronic Man, Faintest Idea and Roughneck Riot.  A four track release, one song per band to accompany the tour that is going on currently.  I traded this with the label for some zines, so a fine swap indeed and very welcome addition.

1st Feb 2017 – Loco Live

I had a copied CD of this Ramones live album for many years and then was able to grab the LP version for under a tenner, so it really did have to be done.  Released back in 1991 and rammed with so many of their more well known tunes, this is a perfect live album and introduction to a band for those who don’t realise Ramones is/was a band rather than a t-shirt from Primark.

1st Feb 2017 – The Thingz

Again playing a little bit of catch up here. I am lucky enough to be in contact with a very cool garage punk band from California called The Thingz.  This three piece are so much fun musically and I am a big fan of what they’re doing.  They kindly ship me over their records for free and their latest LP “Vault Of Tomorrow” is another cracker!

27th Jan 2016 – Pizza Tramp

There’s been a lot of very positive things said about Pizza Tramp and although I haven’t heard them, I did trade for a copy of their LP to check it out. Trading some advert space in Lights Go Out with their label, TNS Records.

On green translucent coloured vinyl, this is a one sider, though like I say, I am yet to play it.
