SEX PISTOLS Never Mind The Bollocks. Circa 1982 US Columbia House Record Club issue of the 1977 12-track LP, housed in a unique picture sleeve which is a distinct cherry red/green & darker in tone than any other pressing, with ‘Manufactured by Columbia House’ print on the back. The vinyl grades VG/VG+ with a few faint cosmetic marks which have little effect, whilst the collectable sleeve is Excellent [faded price sticker mark] with merely a couple of light scuffs for its age.

Britain’ perimeter text, also including Nothing Achieving, housed within a matt flipback style paper picture sleeve with a tab cut out on the back.

Rhino Records “Back To The 80s” Reissue Series
First needledrop for me, yesterday. Second needledrop always means I wanna know more. I hear early New York punk rock in every note, the aesthetic connection to Talking Heads is evident. Just learned that Richard Hell & The Voidoids were the first ever band to play CBGBs. Connections to Malcolm McLaren and the Sex Pistols, more reading ahead. Torn clothes held together by safety pins is something I very clearly remember the older kids wearing in high school, while I was still first absorbing it as a elementary school kid. It’s a most satisfying experience, to be filling these musical gaps in my experience of an era I grew up in. New favorite.
NEW RELEASE (First Time Vinyl Reissue)
Rhino Records “Back To The 80s” Reissue Series
My favorite part about putting together these theme/genre shows is the discovery element. It’s the research and reading, the new challenge of providing a coherent weekly mixtape that encapsulates whatever gets discussed on the program. I’ve had some Gang Of Four lps in the archives for a few years now but never really paid attention until now. ANY reason to hear something new (to me) is most welcome.
This 2 lp comp is AWESOME! It captures everything I like about punk and bands like The Talking Heads. Now I gotta listen to the whole thing a few times, to pick out an appropriate song for the mixtape. Drop any personal suggestions in the comments section, always open to hearing what you guys/gals have to say. VJ Hive Mind is very, very awesome. The idea of a weekly VJ community mixtape? Even more awesome. Songs, please. Help a noob out.

THE DAMNED Stretcher Case Baby. Rare 1977 UK promotional vinyl 7" which was never available for retail sale, but instead was originally given away at a series of London gigs and through an NME competition to celebrate the bands first anniversary,also including Sick Of Being Sick. This is a legendary item from the beginning of the punk era, with superb picture sleeve and matching skull labels. The sleeve has a tiny sticker mark on the front and a small nick to the open edge, otherwisereally nice with no splits, whilst the vinyl shows vert little signs of play. A fantastic example of this great ‘punk’ collectable
