Everything has been said. Our main business is classical selling eye to eye. We are a store in Berlin, with references on location. Our philosophy may come to know by reading, listening & watching older posts. For this year we focus on talking, not writing. We are oldschool button pusher on interests, that means pass by, have a look, have a talk, have a listen. Be inspired – maybe we find your personal button to the fantastic infinite world of music
or rather, did you realize we had a little writing break on our visual business card. We already wrote about our critical view on this years dynamics on vinyl prices/ new releases. We notice a comprehensible reluctance on our customers, to pay more than 12€ for a 7Inch, more than 15€ for a 12Inch and 26 to 30€ ( and more ) for a longplay. At once power online sellers with cut prices for new stuff- that makes simply – for us – no sense. Verifiable our buying prices are the selling prices in Great Britain and the US. That makes no sense, too.
break – still one of our fav. music documentary
Second problem is the most horrible pressing quality, specially on reissues. Bad copies made from mp3’s. – spooky. Today we read that Ed Motta recommend the reissue from the James Walsh Gypsy Band.
we researched and found this product info –
This is the first vinyl release ever, originally only released as a CD-R by the band, licensed official release limited to 500 copies, on a new 180G vinyl with high quality (sic!) cover.
So? Originally released 1979. Released on a CD-R ? when? in the video James is written Jemes. Master tapes or from mp3? doesn’t matter. Everything is possible. It has to be limited and soon expensive on discogs – stormy days for classic sellers
– Stormy, 1970 from the album
by the way – whenever you have the chance to see these three friendly persons live !!
their debut album History Of Flight is gorgeous !
in summary – we love our job and our way will ever be
RSD 2016, everything is prepared. We have, better say got, 50 different articles. The right thing to do ? visit a vinyl store near by. Have a talk, have a look and maybe you go home with a smile. Mystery to me ?
– Mystery to me, 1978 from the album
mystery to me, not really, the spread between the distributions and their delivery quote. Sadly we got no Fela Kuti 10Inch, by an order of laughable three. Our quote all together flabby 40%. 2nd mystery, not really, meanwhile on the day before! impertinent pre-order offers on ebay.com, with double price as necessary ( like that asshole from Columbus, Ohio named tunasaurus). Examples ? The Bowie 7Inch, pre-order price 49,99.
WHAT A DORK !!
back to business. Mmmhh, nice release
– NG Theme, 2016 from
Nu Guinea – The Tony Allen Experiments
for those, who are not into vinyls. For sure one of the most impressing music documentaries of the last years. This man is…….der pure Wahnsinn
by the way – after two business months in 2016 we simply conclude, that the major industry forces the disinterest on classic retail sale. Why ? wholesale prices for new releases again up and away. THIS MAKES NO SENSE for all participants ! we called major label Sony/BMG in munich to asked for a customer ID for simply business and the upcomin‘ Record Store Day. Verbally they told us – this makes no sense for them, because of the expectedly sales with us. We know their program, but do they know us? No – so simply fuck u !!
meanwhile we enjoy our daily job, because we love to discover
2016 release, Recorded in South London between 1975-1982 from the album
for the upcoming weekend, or dance around your work station
