TORI AMOS Strange Days (Superb 2001 UK 32-page 13½” x 9½” glossy calendar programme, featuring twelve double-page calendar months each featuring a different image of Tori. Also includes discography and tour personnel. This copy has been used at the time and has a tape repair on the front & a page inside, otherwise remains excellent).
BINGO HAND JOB Live At The Borderline 1991 (Extremely rare & highly limited 2019 UK individually numbered three colour lithograph print. No witnesses of a Bingo Hand Job gig could be found. No recordings existed. Yet, when it was announced that the enigmatic band and some unusual friends would play London’s 200-capacity Borderline club on 14th & 15th March 1991, tickets were quickly sold out, traded and re-sold at unreasonable prices. Legendary, colossal and now of mythical proportions, the second night which saw Michael Stipe [Stinky], Peter Buck [Raoul], Mike Mills [Ophelia], Bill Berry [The Doc] with friends Spanish Charlie [Peter Holsapple], Conrad [Billy Bragg] and Violet [Robyn Hitchcock], was released as a limited pressing. These prints were produced in a very limited number at the same time of the Record Store Day release, and was given out to lucky people at independent RSD retailing record stores as competition prizes, featuring the artwork used on the limited release, hand numbered 96 out of only 100 produced, measuring 18″ x 24″ in size. Apart from a small light crease in the bottom right corner, this remains in a fantastic condition, ready to be framed & displayed).
