Your humble narrator.
A small snapshot of the scene at about 10:30 am
Elton Motello – The price tag had me, ‘buy it and thank me later’. I really like the track Jet boy, Jet Girl so I bought both of the records he had by Elton.
There’s something twisted and cool about this art.
I was really thankful to find this in a box of 3 for $10. I’m sure this would have gotten snagged really quickly, and then resold. Such a good single, with Paul Revere on the flipside.
Some more classic hip-hop from the same box of 45s.
Public Image LTD. – Public Image b/w Cowboy Song
Heard this track on a compilation and grabbed it with two other P.I.L 45s. The B-side is intense and has a looping run-off groove that has some weird sounds in it.
Public Image LTD. – Disappointed picture sleve
Public Image LTD. – Warrior picture sleeve (got all 3 of $10)
New Order – Power, Corruption and Lies
Great sounding classic record. I was really happy to find this at the end of the show. I guess there weren’t a ton of people who collect New Wave at the show.
New Order – True Faith b/w 1963
Not my favourite New Order songs, but a solid release from Factory.
Adam and the Ants – Kings of the Wild Frontier
I feel like I’ve heard so much about Adam and the Ants and I’ve never really gotten in to them. It has some ring wear, but it sounds pretty good and was about 1/4 the price I saw it elsewhere for sale.
The B-52′s – Love Shack b/w Channel Z
Couldn’t resist this classic in the 3 for $10 box.
The Bangles – Walk Like An Egyptian
Another classic I couldn’t turn down.
Kate Bush – Running Up That Hill
I didn’t know this track, or Kate Bush in general but I heard the Chromatics version of this song and really liked it. I realized I did know this song, and I do know Kate Bush but I didn’t know it!
Dub Rifles – No Town EP
Wow, got this 7″ for a buck and it’s great. I was told it was a band from Winnipeg that wasn’t quite ska, not quite punk and I was sold. For a dollar, it’s really easy and fun to gamble on 7″ records. I’d categorize this as ska, but I know that opens a huge can of worms with it’s own wave categorization. I’m not going to pin this in to a wave, but it’s classic.
The Shadows – Shadoogie EP
I’m not entirely sure what’s going on with this disc. The sleeve is beat up, and it doesn’t seem to match the actual record. Also, the small hole adapter is unlike anything else I’ve ever seen. Both the tracks are great, and I hope this is just the first of many The Shadows records I bring in to my collection
Cliff Richard – Rock and Roll Juvenile
The vendor who sold me the Shadows record got me excited about this because it was related. This is not nearly as good, and I was really looking forward to some surf music.
Michael Jackson – The Way You Make Me Feel
Obligatory MJ grippage for nostalgia. This track was on a tape that came with our mid-90s Dodge Caravan when I was younger.
The Hollies – Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress
A classic tune re-issued in 1972.
David Bowie – Modern Love
I’m a big Bowie fan. I don’t have all of his albums yet, but I am excited every time I find a single kicking around.
Pet Shop Boys – West End Girls
I already have this on 12″, why did I buy this? Oh yeah 3 for $10
Iggy Pop – Real Wild Child (Wild One)
Who is norm? He had pretty decent taste in music.
Underworld – Underneath the Radar
This guy had a big bin full of $1 12″ singles. I was tempted when he told me to make him an offer on the whole bin. A lot of sealed singles, but barely anything to note. I grabbed this Underworld 12″ just because I could.
Depeche Mode – Strange Love
This was in the box of cheap 12″s but I am a bigger fan of Depeche Mode than Underworld. Hopefully this is worth the dollar (likely).
