Italian Soundtrack Vinyl Recently Added At Turntabling: Lots of Morricone

Italian Horror soundtracks SolangeEnnio Morricone’s soundtrack for What Have You Done to Solange is really superior. This film is a lurid Giallo-style shocker featuring nefarious goings-on in a school for girls and the classic Morricone soundtrack touches are all here. Don’t miss out on this one, there are limited quantities available!

Morricone soundtrack for Violent City

Morricone strikes again with the soundtrack to Violent City, starring Charles Bronson. This one isn’t as well known but if you like Morricone’s Italian crime soundtracks, you’re likely to need this one, too.

Stelvio Cipriani Tentacles Italian monster movie

Stelvio Cipriani gets a look in too-our latest inventory update includes a delicious pressing of the Tentacles soundtrack.

Stelvio Cipriani Tentacoli soundtrackAnd what record collection dedicated to horror sounds would be complete without the soundtrack to Lucio Fulci’s demented slasher film The New York Ripper? Francesco de Masi’s score for this one is a must-hear.

These are only a few of the recent updates-take a look at the Turntabling shop to see what other amazing vinyl has been added.

 

Mayfair Stereo Demonstration Record…Demonstration




Ever wonder what the hell is on those old “stereo demonstration” records but didn’t want to shell out the extra few bucks to actually take a battered old copy home with you? Wonder no longer.

YouTuber James Will took the trouble to produce the video above-surprising that the company bothered to press this on specialty vinyl. The LP is called “Stereo Spectacular”. Transparent vinyl! Annoying “test clicks”! The guy with the “announcer voice”!

Creepshow OST Blue Vinyl, Eyeball Soundtrack by Bruno Nicolai: Now Available From Turntabling

Eyeball italian horror soundtrack vinylNow available from Turntabling-Bruno Nicolai’s awesome soundtrack to the wet-and-messy Italian slasher classic Eyeball, directed by Umberto Lenzi. Have a look at the trailer at the end of this post, it’s well worth checking out. The script for the trailer itself is priceless. “EYEBALL! You may never live to see the end of it!”

We’re also stocking limited quantities of the Creepshow soundtrack, pressed on blue vinyl. It’s pretty awesome and if seeing the cover art doesn’t make you want to re-watch Creepshow again, hearing the soundtrack definitely will. The film is one of director George Romero’s superior non-zombie films and makes a great Friday night pizza-n-scares title.

This one comes with a built-in booklet featuring production stills, artwork, and liner notes and it also includes a 12×12 art print!

An Eyeball/Creepshow double feature would be an excellent way to spend an evening, don’t you think?


Turntable Lab Unboxes and Sets Up A Technics 1200

Set up a Technics_SL-1200MK2-2

Turntable Lab unboxes and sets up the mighty Technics 1200 in this instructional video. Not everyone has experience assembling a pro-quality turntable out of the box, so if you are thinking about making the investment, this is a handy guide to walk you through. Beware those little parts tucked away in the styrofoam, they’re easy to overlook in the excitement of pulling that ‘table out of the packaging!



Sergio Martino’s Torso Trailer


Sergio Martino directs Suzy Kendall in Torso, released in 1973. It’s one of the sleazier giallo films from Italy, featuring a soundtrack by Guido and Maurizio de Angelis which you can buy for a limited time from Turntabling.

Any Italian film that features Suzy Kendall in peril is worth at least a look, and Torso does NOT disappoint. It co-stars Luc Merenda, the awesome Carla Brait who giallo fans will remember as “Mizar Harrington” from another high-quality giallo, Case of the Bloody Iris, starring the one and only Edwidge Fenech.

Turntabling is obsessed with the soundtracks to films like this-there’s something about those dissonant guitars, the lounge interludes, and the often VERY experimental approaches to music composition in general. Long before Throbbing Gristle showed up on the scene to make uncomfortable noise in a musical context, composers like the de Angelis brothers, Fabio Frizzi, Ennio Morricone, Riz Ortolani and many others were doing similar things for 60s, 70s, and 80s era Italian films and international productions.

If you find yourself gravitating towards these sounds, do take a moment to browse the Turntabling collection as you’ll find quite a bit of these sounds to obsess over.

Vinyl Collections Wanted: Skinny Puppy, Front 242, Ministry, Sisters of Mercy

Records Wanted Skinny Puppy Front 242
Turntabling is now purchasing record collections featuring industrial bands such as Skinny Puppy, Front 242, Ministry, RevCo and more.

An upcoming art show curated by Chicago’s StudioLab and Turntabling.net will feature the images and sounds of dark music by some of the most legendary bands of the genre.

As part of this art show, Turntabling is in search of record collections to purchase that feature gothic, industrial, dark electronica bands and related performers.

If you have records by Skinny Puppy, Front 242, Ministry, RevCo, Fad Gadget, Frontline Assembly, Sisters of Mercy, The Mission UK, Armageddon Dildos, Coil, Legendary Pink Dots, Muslimgauze, Noise Unit, Shinjuku Thief, Black Tape For A Blue Girl, Download, Puppy Gristle, The Jackofficers, Switchblade Symphony, Big Electric Cat, Christian Death, Nurse With Wound, Current 93,  Dead Artist Syndrome, Electric Hellfire Club, My Life With Thrill Kill Kult, and many others, we definitely want to hear from you.

Contact by email: jwallace@turntabling.net. All serious offers considered.

As mentioned above, there is a great reason for this massive hunt for gothic, industrial, and otherwise dark records-Turntabling, in association with the Chicago artist-run StudioLab located in the historic Flatiron Arts Building in Chicago, is preparing an art show featuring album covers and related materials from the classic era of industrial music. Turntabling seeks to buy record collections that prominently feature gothic/industrial albums to increase the amount of items on display at the exhibit.

Unfortunately due to insurance concerns, we cannot accept loans of this material–we can only purchase outright. But if you have vinyl records to sell, or collections of vinyl that also include posters, fan badges, books, etc on the subject, please get in touch. We are considering all serious offers.

Joe Wallace is curating the show and can be contacted via the address above. Again, record collections that include a lot of gothic/industrial albums, posters, buttons, books, fanzines, etc. will be considered for purchase. We are definitely interested in buying in bulk rather than small lots, but will consider any serious offer regardless of size.

The date for the exhibit has yet to be established since we are in the research and collection phase for the materials, but time is of the essence since we’d like to have the material collected and prepared for display soon. Get in touch as quickly as possible to schedule an appointment to view your collection and discuss purchase options.

Sell Us Your Vinyl Record Collection

We buy vinyl records and record collections

I am looking for record collections to purchase. Turntabling as a record selling site has been dormant for some time due to a variety of reasons, but now that we are back online our record buying activities are also alive and kicking. I buy record collections and would be happy to view any collection that has a decent amount of the right genres.

You can contact me to discuss your record collection initially via e-mail at jwallace@turntabling.net Please include a description of the types of vinyl in your collection, the estimated condition of the records, approximately how many you have and please enclose images where possible of the collection as a whole plus any individual items you may want to let me know about.

WHAT I BUY

I am primarily interested in the following genres:

Soundtracks, especially Ennio Morricone, or any of the 60s/70s Italian soundtrack artists such as Riz Ortolani, Stelvio Cipriani, Roberto Donati, Goblin, Nico Fidenco, etc.

Post-Punk and New Wave including groups like Magazine, Devo, Slow Children, Hawaiian Pups, The Units, Single Bullet Theory, The Suburban Lawns, Adam Ant, anything that falls into this category is always worth a look. Strange, obscure, underappreciated, all welcome.

Gothic/Industrial groups like Sisters of Mercy, Xymox, Legendary Pink Dots, Skinny Puppy, BiGod 20, industrial compilations, Coil, Severed Heads, Front 242, Cure, Banshees, KMFDM, etc. Any collections with a good amount of records like these will get my full attention. Swans, Neubauten, Killing Joke, Chris Connelly, Ministry, PTP, RevCo, etc.

Reggae and Dub but ESPECIALLY dub LPs. The more far out the better. Scientist, Super Ape, Lee Scratch Perry, dub compilations, anything with Adrian Sherwood or Twilight Circus on it, anything from Black Ark studios,  Blood and Fire, On-U Sound, e4tc.

60s/70s Psych and especially garage, teacup psychedelia, early brit psych, etc.

Noise and Experimental: I am looking for a variety of weirdness, noise, experimentation, odd pressings, you name it. The weirder or more unusual the better. Japanese noise especially welcome. Want to get rid of those GeroGeriGeGeGe and Boredoms releases? Getting tired of UFO Or Die and Extreme Noise Terror releases lying around your home? Merzbow annoying your cats? I buy these and much more.

Religious Records of all kinds, the stranger and more left of center, occult-oriented, intolerant/bigoted the better. Especially interested in 80s CCM albums such as those released on Frontline, What?, Sparrow, etc. If you have televangelist records please get in touch. If you have Daniel Amos records, Crumbacher, Edin Adahl, Scatered Few, etc…get in touch.

Bizarre Spoken Word Records including any sex-related, adults only or otherwise naughty albums. Instructional LPs are also great, but the stranger the better. I also buy literature-based spoken word records such as the celebrity reads albums like Roddy McDowall reading HP Lovecraft, Sir Alec Guinness reading A Modest Proposal, sci fi authors reading their own work, etc.

I also buy unusual albums of any type–outsider records, private press LPs, etc.

When purchasing record collections, I am quick to tell people what I DO NOT BUY:

Show tunes. Sorry,  no Broadway, no musicals.

Classic Rock. Not interested in Journey, Kiss, AC/DC, or any of the other groups considered classic rock or Album Oriented Rock. There may be ONE OR TWO exceptions, but not many.

Country. Nuff said.

Jazz. In my experience, the jazz I am interested in (Miles Davis, Coltrane, genres like Soul Jazz music, BeBop, etc) are not the titles offered in collections made available for sale. I’m not buying collections of standard jazz groups or soloists. Avant garde jazz, unusual, funky, left-of-center jazz is another story, so if you have Sun Ra, Ornette Coleman, things of that nature, do let me know. THOSE things I AM interested in.

Singer/Songwriters. Sorry, but we have no demand for Carly Simon, Joan Baez, Carole King, Dionne Warwick, etc. No James Taylor, Jim Croche, etc.

If you have records to sell, please get in touch with Turntabling via my email address: jwallace@turntabling.net and be sure to include your contact information, general location, and how many LPs you have for sale. Thank you very much for your interest.

We are buying record collections of all sizes
