Altrincham is around the corner

Somehow I ended up in the outskirts of Manchester, since I heard that shop had some rare Joy Division sitting on the wall. When I arrived there they just sold that LP was after in the morning.

But after a small chat with the owner, he went looking in the pile of new records that came in and he pulled out this copy of Sheila Take A Bow signed by Johnny Marr.

Also I found a copy of Ask that I was missing.

Stretford blues

I was in Manchester last week for the Roller Derby World Cup. Luckily I had time enough to travel through the whole of the Greater Manchester area and visit a ton of sites of musical importance and obviously a gazillion record stores.

My main focus was the Smiths but I ended up buying a ton of different stuff. But let’s start with the Smiths singles. I passed way to much overpriced stuff but I did found a few good buys. First thing I found was this How Soon Is Now single, the sleeve had seen better days but the price was low. Turned out after closely examining that it was the Australian pressing and not the regular UK pressing.

At another shop, I dug up this German pressing of Stop Me on yellow vinyl.

Finally at another shop, from the sales bin, I dug up two interview singles. Buy 1 get 1 for free, are my favorite deals.

Going blank again

I don’t run across Ride vinyl here, like I did in the UK last week. But I super surprised to find a cd version at my local record store. Despite it being the cd version, I will hold on to it until I find a vinyl replacement.

Supercrush 2nd again

I also ordered the repress on nice looking clear vinyl. My copy came with a nice amount of black swirls.

Supercrush 3rd

The new Supercrush 7″ arrived today. Two more great songs with beautiful artwork and matching vinyl. Also great a fourth 7″ is already announced.

Bathory

I took me a while to find a copy of this metal classic. I always like to have an original pressing. But I soon found out that would be too much to ask. A second press looked like a good idea but that price was even too steep. Even the later, early 90’s pressing which has the full intro, never showed up for a decent price. So I finally settled for a recent repress for a reasonable price but on nice 180 grams vinyl.

Tribute to Husker Du

A friend of mine point me towards this tribute album. After giving it a spin, I really liked it. It started out with a great version of In A Free Land done by NRA. Rest of the bands are almost all good international punk and hardcore bands. Well worth the pick up.

Better Days

This is one of those, I might as well add this buy. Cheap price and no extra postage. A few good songs, but not to big of a fan of the picture disc.

Tapes

Added a few tapes, two of them are actually signed by the artist in question.

Beefeater

Always love to add a Dischord test press to the collection. Especially when it is a great record as this. This is the second full length of Beefeater, probably best known for being the pioneers of the post-hardcore music. It comes with a ton of promo stuff. Interesting and fun to read.
