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:


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.


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.
