Hello again from sunny Moenchengladbach!!!
Not all of you listened to what I said about the end of holidays last time! Hey, I need your orders, like you need a cold drink on friday night!!! Thanks!!
It's getting more and more complicated for small labels to release their records in time, due to the "hype" on vinyl these days! When I see at my distro what all is rereleased by major labels on vinyl, I can just ask: WHO the hell needs that? The pressing plants are booked out and the small labels (and that's most of what I sell) get delayed and pushed back! So, if you ask me.. please STOP THAT VINYL HYPE!!! We all bought vinyl anyway in our history of collecting and will hopefully be able to do so in the future!
But getting to some fab new platters, that might fit well in your collection! This week I got a nice box filled with some great new italian releases, some killer garage & psych, new albums by THE KAAMS & THE BARBACANS as well as a beautiful looking 10" of NO STRANGE! FRUITS DE MER Records is back with 4 stunning 45s, incl a great VIBRAVOID 7"! Be fast... last one's sold out within days!!! THE MAHARAJAS 7" is a VERY good example about pressing plant delays for small labels. Announced for beginning of july..now out 7th of september! Thanks to all of you for being patient!!
State Records & 13 O'Clock Records will have some superb 45s out next weeks. Labels, PLEAAASE..I need some albums to sell. 7"s won't feed big daddy here!!! Oh, and, YES, LES GRYS GRYS 7" on Dirty Water is back in stock, for all who missed out! WHAT a band!!!
One of my alltime fave labels here in germany is of course Alien Snatch!!! Daniel is doing a brave job, releasing only 100% KILLER platters, all heavy vinyl, nice covers and of course top noth music! In september he will have 4 new releases out, incl. the new album by one of my fave current power pop bands THE BARRERACUDAS!!!
My lovely wife has also a good taste, as she married me. In her youth she missed out to buy that CRACK album, but she's happy now, as it just has been rereleased!! WHITE REAPER new album is now also available on vinyl, new POINTED STICKS is not, hey, we need vinyl of this nice one!!!!
Not that much happening in the 6ts box this time. Of course there's another batch of RnB repros, but that's not a big surprise. That Ricky Allen on Tam-Boo was way long overdue!!! Some tasty 45s again, but who can buy all of these? For your reading entertainment there's a new Shindig mag, it's number 50, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!
Wow, way too many words again, please don't hesitate to skip 'em and just order some platters! Enjoy shopping...
