Whenever it’s time to load up the vehicle with eight or nine hundred vinyl records, rare CDs and other stuff for sale in the Turntabling booth, I always hear the strains of ‘The Tubes World Tour”. And it’s that time again.
Three shows in March make this a quite busy season–things start with Days of the Dead in Atlanta March 9-11, then it’s Horrorhound Weekend in Columbus March 23-25, and finally at the end of the month Turntabling appears at Cinema Wasteland which always happens in Strongsville, Ohio.
The Atlanta show is truly the farthest Turntabling has ever gone to sell vinyl–13 hours of driving for the one-weekend event is pretty ambitious but you never know how these things will go. If it goes well, it could be a repeat visit for us in years to come.
If you’ve never seen the Turntabling booth at a horror convention or film festival, you’re in for a vinyl-collecting treat. Five or six crates packed full of rare, hard-to-find and just plain awesome records, plus a ton of rare CDs…our selection personally curated and is aimed at the discriminating vinyl junkie looking for things you might be hard pressed to discover elsewhere.
Turntabling sells and collects rare soundtrack sounds (Morricone, Bruno Nicolai, Goblin, Gert Wilden, Piero Umiliani, Harry Manfredini, John Carpenter, you name it) vintage 80s industrial/dark music (Cabaret Voltaire, Wire, Skinny Puppy, Sleep Chamber, Hilt, Legendary Pink Dots, Coil, Test Department, etc), post-punk (PiL, Gang of Four, Pop Group, Shriekback,) and sonic oddities which must be seen to be believed (Leonard Nimoy reading Ray Bradbury, Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi doing horror radio theater, Vincent Price readings, Doctor Who vinyl, etc.)
If you are planning to come to any of the next three events, and want to sell vinyl please get in touch with us at the show or via our comments section–we can’t purchase everything but always give at least some a look and a fair price when there are titles we need. If you wonder what we are in the habit of purchasing, just look at the site and you’ll get a very good idea indeed.
We hope to see you at the shows! In the meantime, here’s a video version of The Tubes World Tour, because it’s our road tripping theme song.
