Record Jacket Photos #2

Record Jacket Photos #1

Record Bowl for your Fruit Loops

Cool looking, but again, it makes me kind of sad.
Well if it's a Sing Along With Mitch record, I won't
be sad, at all. You can melt those down, all you want.

Christmas Record Wreath Idea-what if it's a rare record?

This bothers me. What if it's a rare record,and
you don't know it? I like the 45 adapters as
decoration. It still makes me cringe, thinking
it could be a rare record... people, don't do this
without checking those record collecting books first.

Teen-Rage 001 label with a 3 song EP.This is the
very first single from The Untamed Youth! You
gotta love the cover song "Doin' Me In" originally

Pretty cool garage rock,git it while you can...
The Untamed Youth EP

The Phantom Surfers - Surfari/Dark Eyes & The Astronauts - Nutbreaker/Lost In Space

The 1994 Tour Single released on the hard to find
Pin Up Records label.
Two modern surf bands do two songs each!
Phantom Surfers Astronauts Split

The Tiki Men - Cattle Prod /Surfin' Senorita 7" Single

The Tiki Men surf garage rock single came out on
Hillsdale Records in 1994. Hillsdale Records, a
San Francisco label released many fine records.
The sleeve says the band is from Sacramento
California and it's also the capitol of frantic music.
Okay! Dig it!

The Hate Bombs - She's The Girl Single

The Hate Bombs 2 track single includes
"She's The Girl" and "Know About You".
Really good garage punk single from 1994.
Stay tuned for more hard to find garage punk
singles and whatnot, hipsters. I like the sound
of vinyl so,more random vinyl from the vaults.

Shut Up & Drive! 4 Track EP The Hate Bombs!

I've always liked old cars,and garage bands from Florida.
The band The Hate Bombs put this out on their label,
Speed-o-Meter Records, and it's 4 bands 4 songs.
The Hate Bombs are a recent garage punk band. I
met them in line at GarageShock,and they were very
cool people. They're still putting out some fine records,
so look for them,support them! Here's a link to
their my space page,and listen to their other tunes!
I like 'em!

Shut Up & Drive!

Johnny Hash - Blues Is Depressing Single

Johnny Hash-another two songs: "Pink Lunchbox"
and their hit song "Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah".
There's something really dirty here about Pink Lunchbox
that most guys will like...and more of that twisted blues
punk rock we all like. This was released on In The Red
Records,and recorded at Easley Recording,and that
should just tell you about all you need to know.

Johnny Hash - Summer Of Cum (For Robert Wyatt) 7 Inch Single

Johnny Hash? What the heck is this? This is when
I bought everything on In The Red Records,because
I thought everything they did was near greatness.
They still are. This is a noisey ass punk blues garage
band,and I know nothing else about them. Brash
young boys, no doubt. 2 songs here:
"Summer Of Cum"(For Robert Wyatt) and "Rat Petal"
They probably broke up and formed another noisey
blues punky band,and I already have all of their
stuff,and don't even know it. It's that we're on this
weird level and when you like this music, you tend
to buy the same stuff. The same weird psycho rock
blues garage. This is for my friend,Dr Fuck Wit, that
weirdo on word press blog. I hope you like it.

F-Word - Shut Down Single (1978 Posh Boy)

1978 Posh Records released this fine slab o punk
rock by F-Word. Two songs "Shut Down" and
"Out There"/Government Official" The b side
songs just quickly run into one another on the
vinyl so I kept them that way. Vinyl to digital
sounds awful cool ! You will be seeing a lot more
rare garage rock,punk singles and other rarities
on this site. I have hundreds of 7 inch singles
80's-90's to now garage rock,and punk to post.
Remember when singles were $3.49 each and
cheaper? Boy have times changed.
Stay tuned hipsters!

Send me some of your stories & photos,you music geeks!

The idea of this blog is to post short stories of people and their love affair for music. There's a lot of people who collect music,for a hobby or because they love it so much. You don't have to be a audiophile, it's about how much you love music. Then there's people who will do anything to meet a band, or get tickets to see a band. There's also people that might have gone to a concert but something strange,unusual,or weird happened. These are all valid stories. Some stories can be about you collecting a particular artists, or band. And what lengths you went to to get everything. Some things could be simple stories about why music matters most to you. Photos are encouraged, because I think looking at someone's record racks that are bulging is a beautiful thing. I also think photos of your memorabilia is also cool,even if it's a small piece of bed sheet the Beatles slept on. I think it's all worthy. I also love photos of people's stereo systems,and how they set up their music to listen to. My guess is that this is a secret subculture of people who are geeks like like me and 20 of my other geek friends. Then when we get together,what do we talk about? Music.
For photos, please make sure you send in jpg photos please. And if you want to self edit something too personal ,do it. Send photos in a smaller format like 200 x 400 pixels or 400 x 400 pixels in size, reason for that is, email is super slow with large photos.
Block out anything super personal, using the paint program or whatever you feel comfortable with.
So start compiling your stuff and send it here.
I already have people very interested in telling some usual stories of how they went out to record their favorite bands or how far they traveled to see a band. I'm not going to post or print stores of real people's names, just a first name, and nothing else. It's up to you, submit it with a fake name,I don't care. I'm not affiliated with the feds. So I don't care what you've done.

Oh, and sure we're going to post some music along with these posts.
I just want to hear from other music fanatics, and music geeks. I know you're out there hiding in your house, and playing your records.

This is from "Jon"

Ha! I was just reminiscing about riding my bike into "the ghetto" when I was a kid. The suburban record stores where I grew up refused to stock records by Black artists. That was in the mid sixties and I was around 13 years old. That was considered an incredibly daring thing to do, and my friends and I were considered crazy by our peers. On my first trip I came back with a 45 of BB King, "The Woman I Love." It was not one of BB's hits. I wish I still had that record. Record stores in Black neighborhoods had fantastic oldies bins with hundreds of 45's at discount prices. White stores only sold the latest top 40 stuff.

This was all in suburban New Jersey, around Paterson and Ridgewood. I wish I still had those records, but do not miss that racist time and place.
