More Vinyl of The Weeekk!!!

Nice laid back choice this week...or maybe not.

Mad as a box of frogs, Plasmatics were fronted by a dodgy looking bird who thought that modesty was two hastily fitted strips of leccy tape - a thing of fascination to us school kids BITD.

I had one of their singles (Butcher Baby) in some blood spattered vinyl if I remember correctly.

CDs just ain't the same...

Vinyl Of Da Weeeekkkk!!

OK so this one ain't rubbish. Its pretty good.

I never bought any of the Jam albums when they came out. I was still at school and my pocket money only stretched to 45s (and Olde English and Special Brew snakebites - but thats another story).

So this was another car boot purchase - 2 quid well spent. Contains a fair few Jam bangers. Perhaps not in the same league as Setting Sons or All Mod Cons but its still good stuff all the same. And it sounds great on a proper hifi, rather than out of an ipod.

Benjyboard Lollipop

Not the greatest pics - the colours are a lot brighter in reality.

Picked this up offa EBay - BB Lollipop deck with ACS500s and Powerflex 5s.

Sweet board with a nice rocker on the deck. Amassing a nice wee collection of Benjyboards.

Rubbish Vinyl of the Weeeeekkkk!!

First, and possibly last, of a series, we start with bubble haired knobber Sammy Hagar and `Voice of America'.

Released in 1984 and containing `I Can't Drive 55', which must have translated well to the non-Murricans amongst us, this is an album of poodle rock, which, if I'm honest, I quite like.

Shortly thereafter Dave Lee Roth spat his dummy out and Sammy joined Van Halen, going on to produce several more versions of VOA, only with better guitar playing.

It only cost a quid fer fucks sake...

Enter The Dragon

Since the Pionner midi amp has completely failed to produce sufficient sound on both speaker channels it was time to change it.

Enter the Sony TA-F240 car boot sale hi-fi special.

And it works a treat.
