Back from Vinyl Road Rage V and the last week has been busy busy getting ready to start selling rare, vintage and just plain amazing vinyl records again. There have been a boatload of amazing new finds and there’s much to share. Stay tuned for updates on the latest vinyl for sale.
In the meantime here’s a little gallery of images from the road trip which covered one thousand miles from Chicago to Pittsburgh and back with plenty of stops in between. To view a larger version of each image, yes, just click on ’em…
It’s been a while since there were any serious updates here…but I’m looking to alter that, especially in light of the developments with Vinyl Road Rage V as of late.
I’ve been contemplating doing an experiment–a spoken word tour of open mic nights along the vinyl road rage route that would have me on stage talking about the weird and wonderful vinyl finds I make on the journey. Vinyl Road Rage has always felt like some kind of band tour for me, but I never performed in any capacity along the way.
This year I’m looking to change that. I’m trying to find venues to hit on the route between Chicago and Pittsburgh, then from Pittsburgh to Minneapolis and beyond. Open mic nights are free-for-all, come one-come all type events (so it seems to me) so it will be interesting to do and even more interesting to see if there’s any interest in some form of fun discussion of vinyl records that involves weirdness, snotty humor and bad album covers.
I’ve got about 20 albums all set aside for the first of these experiments, which I plan to do here in Chicago very soon. I’ll keep you posted on that and will be posting dates and times soon.
In the meantime, I do plan on resurrecting the WTF Records posts here and yes, the BOOK version of WTF Records is NOT dead…it’s just been a bit dormant lately as I’ve been swamped with school (I’m doing coursework in the Sound Design program at Tribeca Flashpoint Media Academy) and paying the bills….
Stay tuned for Vinyl Road Rage dates as well as the spoken word dates and times–Chicago is first, I plan on hitting one a week (at a minimum) to warm up for Vinyl Road Rate. Stay tuned!
Music from The Blob, The Creeping Terror, AND Plan Nine From Outer Space? Ohhhhhh yessss. A great vinyl find indeed. I could NEVER part with this one! It’s music of the spheres alright….but only if the spheres are owned by a vinyl-collecting mad scientist with delusions of godhood. This is not a bad thing.
I was shocked and amazed to discover this treasure at a record show over the winter. Needless to say, I scooped it up immediately.
I do buy record collections and you can contact me about selling your vinyl at email@example.com. What I am looking for: post-punk, soundtrack LPs, new wave, unusual records of any kind, spoken word, experimental, ambient, electronic, lounge, and especially horror and science fiction related vinyl. What I am NOT looking for and will NOT buy for any reason: Broadway and show tunes records, country, hip hop made before 1993, and especially classic rock albums. No. Don’t even bother with these titles, please!
Here are some of the vinyl records I am currently looking for specifically, but please don’t hesitate to get in touch about any of the records you’d like to get rid of!
