Here are some 45s that have resided in my vinyl collection that are for sale. Perhaps you’d like to buy one or more?
Superdope’s Forty-Five 45s That Moved Heaven and Earth
Quite possibly the nicest thing anyone’s ever said about me, my wife and mom included:
Over the last 10-12 years or so, a couple of musical blogs have had a tremendous influence in shaping my musical tastes; every great site from Markprindle.com to somethingilearnedtoday, to vinylmine to lastmanofdaysonearth had a profound impact on me: great musical selections, introduction to great, undergroung, unsung bands that I would have never taken notice of otherwise; all of it (and this is hands down the definitive factor for me), spiced up with SUPERB write-ups. Well, if I had to draw an analogy, I’d say that Markprindle is to any of the incarnations of Jay Hinman’s internet legacy (Agony Shortland/ Detailed Twang/ Dynamite Hemorrage…) what Pepsi is to, dunno, Bordeaux wine or something (i.e.: both taste great, but one takes more time to be fully appreciated). This guy’s wordsmithery is absolutely stunning and might even make tracking down a fairly nondescript no-fi Garage Rock number something worth your time and money. Between the years 1991 and 1994 he published a fanzine called Superdope, with a heavy Trash/Garage/Fuzz/Noise-Rock bent. In 1998, he came up with this posthumous issue. I definitely suggest you get a copy of the paper zine itself, as the write-ups are so good it hurts. In the meantime, and so as to be introduced to the writer’s great taste, enjoy the following list:
I’m selling some 45s over on Discogs.com, and maybe you’ll want to buy some? Some great stuff over there – this Eddy Detroit single; Spray Paint; Monoshock; Claw Hammer; Tiki Men; Mike Rep & The Quotas; Monarchs; Icky Boyfriends – and much, much more….!
Totally bonzai garage punk classic called “Icepick” from 1992 by SUPERCHARGER, a raw trio from the San Francisco Bay Area whom I got to careen around the room to a bunch of times at parties, warehouse shows and the occasional "club" gig. This is from a 1-sided 45 that Trent from The Mummies put out on his own label in an absurdly limited quantity.
