18 Apr

Order From Chaos ‎– An Ending In Fire [killer! I actually saw a dude in the shop with an Order From Chaos t-shirt on too, what are the chances of that, we had a bit of a yak too]
Grenade ‎– The Howling Damned [apparently the first pressing of this has an incorrect track listing… trying to figure out which one I have, I think mine’s the misprint, this is pretty good stuff too]
Stabbing Westward ‎– Wither Blister Burn & Peel [original US version, I skipped these guys years ago and have pretty much just discovered them now, I have their first album Ungod too]
Machine Head ‎– The More Things Change… [European version, pretty good second album]

Shelves, drawers and speakers

10 Apr

I got some shelving, drawers and speakers this week.
It’s been a long time coming [just over 4 months!]
The speakers I got on a whim, they were a good price so I snagged them while they were there [Tannoy 632] they are murderously loud even before I bi-wire them :o
All the shelving and drawers are from a retail music shop that closed down…

All 6 drawers are on double extension heavy duty runners and are full of thrash, death, black, grindcore, doom and some other bits and pieces.
Everything else is on the shelves, including the box sets, DVDs and singles/promos.
Records [metal and drum n bass] are on the left in the ancient looking cupboard thing and the pine boxen
The other set of Keter drawers to the right are not music related and I resent them for it :p

I’ve been a bit busy with stuff but I got some wicked shelves and some huge CD drawers and a pair of speakers too, photos will be taken soon

And a pile of Drum n Bass and some other stuff like Spearhead [not my cup of tea], Bad Astronaut [rubbish], Qemists [not bad, a bit like Pendulum I suppose, Mike Patton makes an appearance too] etc
But most of it is proper Drum n Bass
