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

Who Is Turntabling?

Joe Wallace Vinyl RecordsTurntabling has been expanding lately and going through some changes and now seems to be a great time to reintroduce myself and Turntabling.

My name is Joe Wallace, and for all intents and purposes, I am Turntabling. I run Turntabling from the 5th floor of the Bridgeport Art Center, where I also do vinyl-related art shows and special events. There is a large inventory of vinyl records there, and it’s getting larger all the time. I will have to hire people to help me run it all one of these days soon…but I’m dreading that as I like to personally take care of everything related to Turntabling.

I started collecting records at a very young age, but didn’t get serious about buying until 1997, when I started amassing a pile of bizarre regional and obscure New Wave records from Texas and elsewhere.

I got obsessed with collecting Goblin titles after purchasing two CD compilations of Goblin soundtrack music from an Austin record shop called 33 Degrees, which is now sadly long gone…Goblin led to collecting Ennio Morricone work from the 1960s through 1980s, and that led to buying Riz Ortolani soundtracks, which led to an interest in Bossa Nova and related sounds that could be heard in giallo movies, Italian horror films, sexy Euro cinema and other films from that era between 1960 and say, 1986.

Eurohorror figures largely into these things, too but some of those influential soundtracks are REALLY hard to find these days–IF they are even available at all. Try finding a vinyl copy of the OST for The Blood Spattered Bride or Jess Franco’s Venus In Furs and you’ll see what I mean.

Turntabling has an almost Japanese vinyl otaku focus to it in that I am very interested in soundtrack records in general, but especially Italian horror, giallo, and exploitation. I’m also into anything electronic, bizarre, naughty or experimental on vinyl. I try to sell things I want in my own collection, and I am always up for purchasing record collections or lots of albums that include New Wave, Goth, Industrial, Experimental, No Wave, etc.

So basically I am on the lookout for electronic, experimental, soundtracks, and unclassifiable/weird records. Since I buy AND sell, I am always happy to consider offers from people who want to sell their collection of records.

I scour the earth for vinyl records to list for sale in the Turntabling Discogs shop and to add to my own collection. When I am not selling vinyl records, I’m planning vinyl-related art shows as mentioned above, and other creative endeavors.

When you buy from Turntabling, you buy from me and support the vinyl projects I run from the 5th floor of the Bridgeport Art Center. You also support the annual cross-country record store blogging trip I do called Vinyl Road Rage. It takes of a LOT of gas and hotel money to blog about America’s most wonderful places–the record stores–and every album you buy from Turntabling supports that effort, too.

If you have questions, want to buy vinyl, or want to sell a record collection, please get in touch with me: orders@turntabling.net. If you’re interested in connecting with me on social media, please drop me a friend request at Facebook or connect with me on Instagram. I’m also on Twitter.

Thanks for your interest and keep on spinning those records!

I Buy Record Collections!

I buy record collectionsI am very interested in people who want to sell their record collections. I am looking for large and small quantities of odd, unusual, and just plain awesome records in good condition.

I have purchased collections in the past that consist of soundtracks, goth and industrial, 80s new wave, spoken word, punk and post-punk, psychedelia, and that strange creature from the 80s and 90s and beyond known as Christian Indie music, CCM, etc.

I also am interested in purchasing “stag” and “adults-only” vinyl records as I’m assembling a large collection of them for an art show I plan on for Fall 2014. This could include anything on Laff Records or any of the other low-to-no-budget record labels pressing those titles and the ones that used to be for sale under the counter at truck stops and other places.

There are also a large number of genres I have no interest in–I am not purchasing Broadway shows, musicals, or the soundtracks to musical films. I’m not interested in Jazz collections, Classic Rock, etc.

But if you have weird records, goth/industrial/electronic music, soundtracks, and all the above mentioned at the top of this article, do get in touch with me via orders@turntabling.net.

 

What’s Happening At Turntabling

Toledo Ohio Record StoresThere have been some interesting developments and changes at Turntabling, which have resulted in the record and CD sales portion of this site becoming a fundraiser for my art space, StudioLab.

That means that any time you purchase a record or CD from Turntabling via our Discogs.com store, you are directly supporting the arts.

Our pricing won’t change, but do know that the entire inventory is being sold as a fundraiser for the art space so I and my art partners can continue to make dark, unusual, and yes, vinyl-related art there are share it with you here and at the StudioLab official site.

Thanks as always for your continued support and look for many more updates to the Turntabling inventory over the coming days.

Buying Record Collections in 2014: Sell Us Your Vinyl

WE BUY RECORD COLLECTIONSTurntabling is purchasing record collections in 2014. We are looking to purchase entire collections and smaller lots of vinyl in a variety of genres, but especially  electronic music, goth, industrial, new wave, dub and reggae, lounge, soundtracks, and weird records of all kinds.

Turntabling is happy to consider collections of any size but we are definitely not purchasing Broadway, show tunes, jazz, country music, and especially NO CLASSIC ROCK, please.

If you have vinyl records to sell, please get in touch by emailing us: orders@turntabling.net.

When contacting us about selling a record collection, the more information you can provide the better including the number of records, their condition, what genres are represented, and any other helpful info.

We are happy to consider collections located outside Chicago–we don’t mind traveling for the right vinyl. Thank you very much for your interest and we look forward to hearing from you!

I Buy Record Collections: Chicago Industrial Music, 90s Electronica, Italian Soundtracks, Lounge, Bizarre LPs and Oddities

Turntabling has many purposes. One of them is to scour the earth to find and offer you the most interesting and hard-to-find titles in selected genres including soundtracks, goth, industrial, post-punk, and many other genres. Another is to archive the strangest and most unusual vinyl on the planet–I have a special love for weird, unusual, and WTF vinyl records.

To do both of these at once, I find myself in the position of having to buy record collections–a lot of people don’t want to part with SOME of their records, just ALL of them for whatever reason. And I am VERY happy to help. I gladly accept donations of record collections but am also willing to make an offer of a group of titles.

If you have a vinyl record collection to sell, do get in touch with me at jwallace242 at gmail and let me know the size of the collection, a list of titles or sample list of titles, their approximate condition and any other information I can use to get started.

I am actively looking for record collections that contain titles in the goth, industrial, post-punk, soundtrack, and spoken word genres. I am also interested in a limited number of unusual jazz albums by artists like Sun Ra. Also, Stockhausen, John Cage, and other innovators and pioneers are most welcome.

For every want list, there’s also a DO NOT WANT list. My own personal do not want list includes classic rock, classical, country, show tunes/Broadway musicals or the majority of Jazz records with exceptions made for Miles Davis, John Coltrane, and other innovators. Typical jazz LPs fall outside my curation and collection interests.

But if you have a collection of Skinny Puppy, Sisters Of Mercy, Thrill Kill Kult and other industrial vinyl you want to get rid of, Drop me a line. The same goes for Alien Sex Fiend, Gang of Four, or most other post-punk luminaries and unknowns. I am particularly interested in unknown and underrated bands in the New Wave, goth and industrial genres, etc. Some of the most amazing records are not necessarily by the big names in these genres, but rather the unknowns and under-rateds.

In Search of Italian Library and Soundtrack Vinyl

Turntabling seeks vinyl at all times, but right now we are especially interested in purchasing large numbers of Italian library and soundtrack sounds–the bigger the collection, the better. We are also interested in individual titles, such as the vinyl edition of Barry 7’s Connectors pictured here (Volumes One AND Two).

If you have library music and soundtrack vinyl to sell, please get in touch as we’d be happy to discuss your collection. Turntabling is NOT interested in Broadway/Show Tunes, Classic Rock, Hip Hop made after 1992 or Country collections…thanks for your interest but we aren’t buying any of those genres.

If you have vinyl to sell, please feel free to send an e-mail with as much detail as possible to jwallace242(at)gmail.com.

Selling Vinyl on Turntabling

Turntabling does indeed sell vinyl records–rare vinyl, hard-to-find LPs, strange records, interesting and out-of-print albums, collector’s items and generally awesome records. A lot of extremely collectible records pass through my collection and wind up for sale at horror and sci-fi fan conventions, on the Turntabling Discogs.com shop, in my Etsy store (see the links in the righthand column) and elsewhere.

There are two reasons why people buy from Turntabling. One, I do pride myself on finding rare and obscure vinyl. I have interests that span a variety of genres including industrial music, electronic/experimental, dub, reggae, psych, spoken word, and new wave. I look for things I myself want to own, and often wind up with duplicates for one reason or another. One of those reasons is that I buy record collections (get in touch with me at jwallace242@gmail.com for more information).

But the most important thing you should know about Turntabling–the proceeds from all these record sales go to fund Vinyl Road Rage and the Turntabling site in general. When you buy from Turntabling, you’re supporting the site financially–that’s something that’s really important to me and I truly appreciate that support. Thank you to all those who buy vinyl and CDs from Turntabling on Etsy, Discogs, at the conventions and elsewhere. You are the reason why the site still exists!
