WTF Album Covers: From Nelson To Jesus

An album cover is like an advertisement for your music. The image can sell a record, or it can make people run away screaming from your record at a GLANCE. So with that notion in mind, one DOES have to wonder what these artists were contemplating when they settled on these particular images. And remember, kids, if you put your work on public display, you invite commentary. Nobody with an album cover is safe from the snickering.

“Because They Can” sort of screams “contractual obligation”, doesn’t it? The gents themselves couldn’t be bothered to show up for the art direction meeting on this one? Too busy trying on new silver moon boots to give a toss? You tell US what was going on here.

It would be very funny to make a bunch of jokes about how Vladimir Putin likely owns this record and listens to it on a nightly basis, but nobody in the Turntabling office is willing to risk getting stuck in the leg by an umbrealla tip loaded with a Ricin pellet.

Those dresses are likely worth a fortune now on the vintage market. The suits those poor bastards are wearing? Not so much. There’s too much of a frontal attack on the eyeballs for this album cover, WTF is going on here? And why do these goddamned families keep putting out records?

They were an Austin, Texas Christian metal band, but one does wonder how their fundie beliefs lined up with aping Freddie Mercury who was basically everything that Christian metal bands hated back in the Satanic Panic 80s. How did nobody review the grimacing on this album cover and say, “Hey lads, any chance we could use a photo where you don’t look like you’re all passing a kidney stone?”

We Buy Record Collections: Goth/Industrial Vinyl Wanted

Sisters Or Mercy Vinyl Records wanted

It’s time once again to put out the call-Turntabling is actively looking for record collections to purchase. We are VERY keen on goth/industrial records and are specifically looking for any Sisters of Mercy, Bauhaus, Cure, Wax Trax! records and anything else that falls in or near this genre of music. If you have records to sell, please get in touch with us at:

orders@turntabling.net

Why the urgency about this genre? Turntabling isn’t just interested in the sale of vinyl, we are also coming to grips with a growing fascination for the preservation of certain types of vinyl records. More than once around the Turntabling collection the thoughts of starting an actual vinyl preservation society or museum or some similar type project has been kicked around. While there are still no firm plans afoot, the idea of building a library of vinyl records to be preserved, discussed, and analyzed is a tantalizing one.

So we put the call out once more for record collections. If you have vinyl to sell, please know that we are not seeking jazz collections (except for a very limited range of jazz centered around Miles Davis Bitches’ Brew type sonic excursions, Sun Ra, Coltrane, or Morricone-style soundtracky jazz sounds.), we have no interest in Classic Rock, don’t care about Broadway or show tunes, and have no desire to purchase country music collections.

What ARE we looking for? The Goth/Industrial genre most definitely but not just the big names-we seek indie, unknown, private label, and one-shot wonders from this genre too.

We also have an interest in a range of power-pop, post-punk, electronic, experimental and avant garde artists. Spoken word albums are right up our alley, and the weirder they are or the most unclassifiable the better.

We also purchase soundtracks across a variety of cinematic genres, but are especially interested in Morricone, Riz Ortolani, Nora Orlandi, and many others. Horror soundtracks, sci-fi, and anything strange or fantastic is what we are looking for primarily here. If it sounds even the slightest bit psychedelic, trippy, etc. we are more than interested.

We also have a fascination for “adult” and “adults only” vinyl records. This is a fascinating sub-genre of the record industry that we definitely want more of for a variety of reasons including a proposed art show featuring these records in all of their problematic glory. The vintage sexism, the male-gazey objectification, and incredible no-budget qualities of these productions make them museum pieces of the highest order for those of us who love to marvel at the horrifying practices of cultural movements past.

So, to recap: WE WANT TO BUY YOUR RECORD COLLECTION.

Contact us: orders@turntabling.net

Please give us an idea of the titles, condition, and volume of the collection. We do travel to view record collections of a size that might justify such a journey, but such arrangements are made on a case-by-case basis. Please be as detailed as possible when contacting us and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Thank you for reading and we hope to hear from you soon…

Awesome Vinyl Goodness Still In Stock

We are about to add a nice selection of titles to the Turntabling shop, but as we are processing new arrivals, have a look at some of THESE amazing vinyl records still in stock and getting more rare by the day, from the looks of things!

This awesome Dangerhouse compilation includes the legendary X (John Doe and company, not the Japanese band of the same name), The Alley Cats, Black Randy, and the Dils. Some will gravitate heavily towards the Avengers track, oh yes indeed. You can buy the Dangerhouse Give Me A Little Pain compilation LP from Turntabling.

Another EXCELLENT compilation we have a VERY limited supply of,  this one features legendary acts including Popol Vuh, Vangelis, Deuter,  Ash Ra Tempel, and many others. This is a THREE LP compilation set and worth every penny. Buy The Microcosm: Visionary Music of Continental Europe from Turntabling.

Definitely not a compilation, but this stunner from Morricone conductor Bruno Nicolai is a totally must-have soundtrack for any fan of the giallo genre. The movie itself is entertaining as hell, with twists, twists of previous twists, and plenty of scenery chewing by Anthony Steffen, who plays a character described by the IMDB as a “wealthy pervert”. If that doesn’t get your full attention, you probably don’t need to see this film.

Buy the soundtrack vinyl LP for The Night Evelyn Came Out Of The Grave from Turntabling. Did we mention this is a double-LP color-vinyl edition featuring one LP in blue and one LP in red? With a gatefold sleeve? Oh, yes…this one’s great.

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”!

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
