Here are some 45s that have resided in my vinyl collection that are for sale. Perhaps you’d like to buy one or more?
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.
