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:
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
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…
