Kraftwerk “Neon-Lights” 12” from 1978. Yes, the vinyl glows in the dark!!!

Next to “Front by Front” my favorite Front 242 album. First Belgian pressing. RRE MK2.

The original sounds pretty damn good!

Old SPK is the best. Love the Auto Da-fé vinyl!

Old school Projekt Records cassette compilation from 1989. Xerox sleeve and all. So underground!

A little shameless self plug here:

My moody, post-punk, minimal wave, industrial synthy project L’Avenir releases it’s debut album “The Wait” today on Barcelona’s Cold Beats Records. It’s available now on CD/Digital with a vinyl edition to come VERY soon. If you’re into cold dark music and like it, spread the word :-)

Buy it here: http://coldbeatsrecords.bandcamp.com/

One of my favourite Current 93 albums. Limited edition blue vinyl I bought in Pittsburgh at this tiny shop called Aziz back in the 90’s. The owner had an, almost unhealthy, obsession with the band Sleep Chamber.

"Brian Jones died for your sins"

Been busy and haven’t posted in a while but look what came in the mail today. Beautiful hardback monograph!!! It’s worth the price alone just for the the photos of the original Discreet Music tape recorders and EMS VCS3 all lined up, just like the diagram on the vinyl, on the floor in his studio. Total nerd moment ;-)

Just unearthed from a box in my basement is this excellent spoken word video meme of Genesis. It was originally made for the Pharmakon gathering in Brighton England circa 1993-94 then released as a limited edition shortly after. I thought I had lost it while moving around a lot in the early 90’s. Recorded shortly after the Scotland Yard mess and Gen’s exile in Northern California. Great stuff!!!

Pretty cool vinyl only compilation from around 1984 featuring the Industrial Records roster.

Current 93 “Nature Unveiled” first vinyl pressing, circa 1984, with inserts. Great album to play at peak volume with the car windows down!!!

A limited edition reissue I picked up in 1990 of the 1983 cassette release. Funny that 23 years on the package still smells of incense. Ahh, the power of 23 ;-)

If you haven’t seen the trailer for the upcoming Wax Trax! Records documentary check it out! Watching it really brought back a lot of great memories from back then. Really happy I got to live through it as it was happening. I’m also happy I hung on to all my Wax Trax! vinyl. Just wish I hadn’t sold all my cassettes. When CDs were becoming popular, I just replaced the tapes with the CDs. Dumb.
