17th October: Mid Week Update

1st ever wordpress blog update. Big thanks to Realization Music for the development of my WordPress pages.

New additions to the Vinyl Collection in the last few weeks have included some pretty special items, my personal favourite being my Biffy Clyro – Infinity Land Expanded Edition reissue from Beggar’s Banquet (below).

Other notable additions; the fantastic new 7″ singles from Everything Everything and Dog Is Dead and the rather quite flashy Muse “The 2nd Law” Thermo-reactive Deluxe Box Set.

If you are interested in seeing my collection in full, head over to my “My Music” tab for a link to the latest catalogue.
