The newsletter was mailed to subscribers on Saturday 17th October with 466 new items.
The highlight for some will be the punk badges. I finally got round to starting to add them starting with the larger 1977 tin badges, the unusually shaped ones and other larger sized badges. The 1″ badges will have to wait for another newsletter. Of all of them my favourite is The Ruts Staring At The Rude Boys plastic moulded badge. There’s a lot been added, some real rarities amongst them and all originals, they are duplicates from my collection which I got round to pain stakingly sorting, a task I’d been putting off for years.
There’s a large selection of R.E.M. fan club singles – almost a full set, the usual large selection of new reissue LPs and 7″, some posters and flyers, some 1990s indie promo CD singles and albums, some low value rock and metal singles, a few Trent Reznor albums, some Japanese albums, Adam Ant memorabilia and some interesting early Death In June memorabilia including correspondence from Douglas P. and of course the usual large array of punk rock and general indie, grunge etc. bits and pieces.
The web site will be updated on Tuesday.
The next newsletter will probably be a very large one just before Xmas as there’ll be a rush on to get packages out of the UK before Brexit kicks in and EU customers get hit with VAT and duty.
