For the last few weeks my free time has bee taken up with planning my Great Escape Festival plans – but during this time I have obtained loads of new vinyl. First up is 3 Newbury Comics special edition releases.
1. Nirvana – Bleach (limited to 750)
Newbury Comics have reissued this amazing LP on clear/white smoke vinyl using the original master tapes. I have number 429
2. Pearl Jam – Ten (limited to 2,000)
Newbury Comics have reissued the twin version of the Ten LP that was originally issued as part of the Legacy box set on coke bottle green vinyl. I have number 1066
3. The Strokes – This Is It (limited to 1,000)
The last of the Newbury Comics items is the reissue of The Strokes amazing debut on a half gold (translucent orange) and half blue plate. I have number 0409
Next up is the full set of Crosses 10″ that make up the LP that was released earlier this year (which I purchased on White vinyl):
One last update, I have also picked up one of the earlier Catfish and the Bottlemen singles (Rango), on white 7″ vinyl and The Cooper Temple Clause’s debut album, “See Through This and Leave” on 6×7″ black vinyl:
As another month of record buying comes to a close, I thought I would post a nice round up of the new additions to my collection.
First up is the debut from ‘The World is a Beautiful Place and I Am Not Afraid to Die’ called ‘Whenever, If Ever’. Pressed on a translucent blue with smokey blue marbling (and a few other colours too). As an added bonus, I got this just in time to see them perform at the Green Door Store, Brighton, UK on the 6th April – so hopefully it will be signed soon.
Next up are two ‘The Wonder Years’ LPs . First up is their critically acclaimed ‘Surburbia, I’ve Given My All, and Now I’m Nothing’ album from 2011. Pressed on clear vinyl
Then, the more recent, and absolutely stunning follow-up, 2013’s ‘The Greatest Generation’ pressed on translucent orange vinyl. As with the TWIABPAIANLATD vinyl, I have also got these in time to see the band perform live at The Haunt, Brighton later on in April.
Next up is the slightly delayed Crosses LP on White heavyweight vinyl. A great record from one Chino from Deftones many side projects. Check the yellow and grey “smoking” on the vinyl – nice touch.
And finally, the live version of Finch’s amazing debut album, What It Is To Burn on white heavyweight vinyl.
