Re: The VINYL Thread!

What about using isopropyl alcohol to clean crud off of records?

That's my usual go-to cleaning agent for most electronics, but I've heard from a few people that it can damage they vinyl. Never tried it, but I've always meant to experiment on an old junk record sometime.

Sure, just use 99% and dilute the hell out of it. Again, preferably with distilled water.

^ Pretty nifty, too bad I'm not much of a soundtrack guy (like ones that have the movie score. If it's songs from the soundtrack, like say, the 1980 film Times Square, I'm in). Still the only Rob Zombie movie I ever liked though.

My latest from Discogs is an 80s pressing of the Ramones' first record. Pretty jazzed about it, except the price was a little low so I'm wondering if it's a current pressing. Oh well, even if it is, it's still the first record by the Ramones (not their best though, that's why it was not my top priority once I began collecting vinyl again)

Yeah, it's the score, which John 5 composed. Waxworks also released 20 units of the deluxe wooden boxed set for $300, but those are beyond sold out.

Aw, fuck, that looks like a nice package. Didn't care for the movie at all, though.

Gonna have to order that. The bonus album kind of seals the deal.

Nice!

Do witches appear at your door when you play it?

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Waxwork has become on of my favorite labels next to Death Waltz, but I passed on this release. I would like to hear the bonus disc but Iím not much of a classic rock fan.

Picked up the new Antlers and GY!BE albums, and pre-ordered the soundtrack for Demon's Souls. Looking forward to diving into all three.

That Lords of Salem LP looks sweet.

I'm always happy when an OOP vinyl on my want list finally gets a repress, so this is my latest purchase:

Re: The VINYL Thread!

So I got that Ramones record in the mail yesterday. It's not the exact pressing as stated in the Discogs ad (which was 1989), but it's not a current one either so I'm happy. Discogs lists this as "unknown year", I'm guessing 80s. It does sound glorious though. I'm still on the lookout for a 70s pressing of the record, but this will get many spins in the meantime. Hey ho let's go indeed.

Speaking of Ramones, I cannot believe that it's already been 20 years since Joey Ramone has died!

Nothing new for me in a while. Still waiting on a Midnite Vultures reissue, which Beck claims is coming (according to his recent Twitter Q&A).

I'd be all over that - it's his best album, IMO.
