So, my friend just gave me an old vinyl player, (i dunno how it's named in english), wow.... it's just amazing.

The frist thing i've played is the "Oh perilous world" by rasputina... track 11.. "infidel".

stunning.


i love the old style of this "thing",  and i can spend hours seeing the vinyl turing around.

oh.. the small details of life... the more enjoyable things.






I love you for liking Rasputina.

I have The gatherings' Souvineers and Home on Vinyl. I got the last version of Home CLEAR vinyl from their tour. The sound is amazing on a record player.

Can someone give me some sites to buy vinyl records off of if there are any out there. I keep hearing of bands I like releasing them, but I can never find any copies.

With all the harry potter obsessiveness here and there, I feel the need to state my opinion on the matter:

I would buy one of these books only if there was a severe shortage of toilet paper.

that is all.

I just listened to "LIFTED or the Story is in the Soil..." by Bright Eyes on my record player this morning.

I also have a shitload of original pressings, including "Sgt. Pepper", "Highway 61 Revisited", "Pet Sounds", etc etc etc.

Yeah, I know I'm awesome. Tell me something I DON'T know.

i've heard that you and your band have sold your guitars and bought turntables.

Here's my rig.



(Note the 6" vinyl. I've got several 5" records too! Crom bless Melt-Banana.)

I'm a bit of a vinyl junkie. Digital's more convenient and all but there's something about vinyl that's much more special. Much better visuals (art + colored vinyl), better sound in some cases, and a certain ritualistic feeling to it all. Gimme more vinyl!

I stole all my parents vinyl as a kid, bought more at yard sales and buy records when bands I love release them. My room is always a mess, but the records/record player are like sacred ground.

There are a million sites online that sell vinyl. Just poke around, doing things like punching in an album name on Google and including "vinyl" or "LP". GEMM is also a wonderful site.

Ditto...for my Tori Amos vinyls. I found Under the Pink and a double vinyl of Boys for Pele. Sure I know all the songs, but it would be cool to actually put them in motion. Then I would have an even more valid excuse for buying more vinyl. Now not having a player is my valid excuse for not spending money. Still you can't deny the retro quality of awsome that a vinyls are!
