The site was updated on 6th October with 460 new items.
Inluded are a large selection of promotional badges acquired from a former manager of an HMV store. Not so many punk ones amongst them, but some interesting ones like The Who, Simple Minds and The Chords.
A large number of punk badges have been added, not from the above source all duplicates from my personal collection. There’ll be more to come in future updates.
There’s some interesting Japanese imports including: Cocteau Twins ‘Teasure’, PIL‘Paris Au Printemps’ with the highly limited live shot poster and a promo copy of Siouxsie & The Banshees ‘(the staircase) Mystery’ 7″.
There’s a selection of cracking memorabilia including: late 70s Squeeze 10″ x 8″ A&M Records press photos signed by various members; Madness sheet music, many Dr. Feelgood goodies including posters, photos and a lot of the Feelin Good’ fan club magazines.
The rarest item is probably the Transparent Illusion ‘Still Human’ LP. This 1981 minimalist syth release is considered something of a classic. A DIY release poorly packed means all copies suffered some damage to the vinyl. It’s especially rare to find it with the insert, few copies seemed to contain that.
Next newsletter early December.
