Close to good friday...

Yeah, it's tomorrow. We got a bonus from work, so I decided to splash out on some nice vinyl. As you do...

7" Depeche Mode ‎– Wrong (red No 8031)
12" Klinik - Fever
12" Ubangi - They came from outer space
LP Ubangi - Disco Baby
LP The Invisible Limits - Demand For Supply



I can feel I've got another cold coming. Went by Kollaps. It always makes me feel a little bit better.

12" Deathday - No Future
Ich Wollte, Ich Könnte ‎– At The Gate


Kollaps... And a decade of thoughts.

In March, 2006, I decided to start a blog. I didn't even really know what a blog was, but I decided to try to write something everyday. I just got settled in a new country and I figured I should document it some how. I didn't realize it's a decade ago. That is just crazy. My first post was uploaded 2006-03-18 @ 20:14:49. That was 10 years ago last night. 10 years... I can't believe it.

I think I might have bought my two last records from the Kollaps Records store. A sad day indeed. They might have one or two additional items I want, but we are getting closer to the end. Life goes on.

I also met up my buddy J who finally got his new album out! Can't wait to listen to it...

LP Angaudlinn ‎– Stories From The Red Book (No 006/300.)
12" Bestial Mouths / Deathday ‎– Split
LP Deathday ‎– Deathday (Grey/white and black speckles)


Closing time...

No call for alcohol. Well, at least not for me. On March 17, 1986, Depeche Mode released Black Celebration. I still remember that day. We passed 30 years yesterday. Amazing. I also found out, Kollaps Records is closing down the store. It's a real shame, but I do understand the reasons why they decided the time had come. I've spent a lot of money in that store. I've met a bunch of great people in that store. I've spent so many hours in their store, it almost feels like a second home. Both stores that is. I'm sure gonna miss it. I know they will do a lot of stuff in the future. I wish them luck in their future endeavor. Those guys have introduced me to more than half the people I hang out with these days. I owe them a lot. Jonas and Mattias, you're fucking awesome. Both of you.Thank you for everything. I'm sure gonna miss the store. You can still buy records from them via their webshop. You should. Always support people who loves music.

Of Desire...

I've been waiting for this one for a long time. Can't wait to give it a spin!

LP The KVB - Of Desire (Aqua Marine with White & Black Splatter Vinyl 300 copies)


Went back to An Ideal For Living today. I found this one in the basement.

LP Interpol ‎– Unknown Pleasure (White)

An Ideal For Living

This great shop put out some records on the street today. Like a clearance. I got to cross one off my wanted list.

12" James Ray And The Performance ‎– Texas
LP In The Colonnades ‎– Scrap Metal Value
LP The Mission - The First Chapter
LP LIK - Mass Funeral Evocation


Tottenham vs Arsenal.

Yeah, we really need to win this. But to pull it off at WHL, it's not an easy task. I was so worried, I had to buy a lot of records from Jonas personal stack.

7" Elephant - Catalogue/Replica
7" Elephant - Elephant
7" Elephant - Separate End/Dance On Me
12" Linea Aspera - II
2LP Depeche Mode - Delta Machine



I haven't thought about Therapy? in a long time. I do occasionally strum through the riffs from Troublegum. I still think that's one hell of an album. I need to get it on vinyl. I got these two today. My first purchase via Facebook.

7" Therapy? - Opal Mantra (Yellow)
7" Therapy? - Trigger Inside (Blue)


Sound Affects!

After my failure at the record fair last weekend, I am trying to redeem myself. How about going for a stroll in the beautiful lunch weather and buy a few records?

LP The Jam ‎– Sound Affects
LP The Jam ‎– The Gift
