Long Live Vinyl magazine is issuing a special run of the magazine called “The Vinyl Buyer’s Bible”. Volume 2 is currently on the shelves and I had a flick through a digital copy.
The “bible” is broken down into certain genres of music. In amongst the latest edition was a “How To Buy” on the post-punk genre.
It struck particular interest in me as a genre of music I really like. And as a fan of a certain band, I was hoping to see them represented within the pages accordingly. HAVE NO FEAR! Empires And Dance was INDEED amongst the illuminati discussed. But, WTAF? A Virgin reissue copy is worth DOUBLE a Zoom original?! Are you having a giraffe!!? I’m sorry…but NOT IN THIS HOUSEHOLD! My first pressing green label copy is one of my most prized possessions! I positively covet it! I nearly…just…I dunno…IMPLODED…had an orgasm…when I unwrapped the copy I obtained from a seller on Discogs around the summer of 2016. I was in raptures!
My tattoo DEFINITELY has the Zoom catalogue number for it (SPART 1140) and NOT a Virgin one. I mean, COME ON!
It’s a fairly comprehensive list of the best the post-punk genre has to offer. Something for you peeps (and me!) to sink your teeth into.
