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…

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.

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.

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.
Really pleased to be able to upgrade and pick this one up.
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!

On a recent trip to Felixstowe I picked up a couple of records very cheap.
A copy of the classic 80’s series Hits 5. Double LP.
And this Faith No More 12” of “Epic” in great condition.
But promptly parted with them just a few days later… I already had Hits 5 at home!
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.
