Trying to explain what exactly constitutes rock music could take a life time. It is one of the broadest genres, and can be given almost any prefix. Prog-rock, alt-rock, jazz-rock, punk rock, psych rock…. the list is endless. It has been the subject much discussion, and rock has even been declared dead on numerous occasions.
Judging by the amount of rare and collectable vinyl we see from almost every corner of the rock music lexicon, the genre is very much alive and well. Below are a few of the latest arrivals we have in stock, ready to find a place in your collection. You can search for your favourite artists in our store to see our full range.
Nirvana – Hormoaning: Rare Original 1991 Australian-only 6-track 12″ tour EP pressed on limited edition RED & BLUE SWIRL VINYL, unique picture sleeve with January-February tour dates on the back. The sleeve is lightly textured & has a thin 1″ paper hairline split in the spine & top edge, with some minor corner creasing commensurate with its twenty-seven years & with all text legible. Not only does the condition let you know this is genuine but also the shower head & the bathroom mirror are both in shot on the front cover. The vinyl appears Near Mint, with the original hand etched matrices in the run-outs reading: DMX 79745 ®2,B / DMX 79 746 ®2A. Now very hard to find! £595
T-Rex – Rockin’ & Rollin’: Extremely rare 1973 Japanese only 18-track ‘Special DJ Copy’ promotional vinyl LP, unique picture sleeve with Japanese sleeve notes on the reverse. The sleeve on this copy shows just a little light edge & corner scuffing & is free from the more usual rips and sticker tears. The vinyl is staggering and remains free from all but the lightest of paper scuffs with little sign of play. One of the best copies of this rare album that you are ever likely to find £595
The Misfits – Horror Business: Very rare 1979 US 3-track wide-centred 7″, pressed on transparent yellow vinyl, limited to just 2000 copies. Complete with picture sleeve, horror story insert, and ‘Fiend Club’ merchandise insert. Also includes Teenagers From Mars, and Children In Heat £595
