I'm pre-ordering a shitload of Mars Volta vinyl too, so yeah.

What do you think? Any suggestions on some records I should buy?

I have a record collection of 52. Well, actually more like 3000, but I inherit those down the road. I've got everything... I've got hair-metal, I've got rap, I've got punk, I've got shit.

Get things that are appealing to you, or things that are old/rare. You might find a few gems cheap at a thrift store. You should look for Paranoid (Black Sabbath), Raw Power (Iggy and the Stooges), City Baby Attacked by Rats (G.B.H.), Frankenchrist (Dead Kennedys), and any old punk records you may come across.

I have a bunch of old records my parents passed down to me. Nothing really of note, except for a bunch of David Bowie albums. I'm looking to purchase a turntable in the future and starting a record collection. I have found some good sources on the internet for old vinyl, but first I need a turntable.''

Edit - As for a rating, I'd give it a solid 8.

Your grandmother's a damned hippy. As for records you should buy there are two obstacles:

1) It's ridiculously hard to find specific records these days since a good deal of the vinyl trade happens at garage sales.

2) Why would you not just buy CD versions? I understand the vintage thing, but for people who actually like to listen to music, it would make sense to prefer the remastered versions.

However if you must, Ozzy Osbourne. Then you can play it backwards and look for satanic messages.

I'd be happy to, although I have to warn that these sites are designated for older punk titles. I maybe should have specified the content of each site in my earlier post. Although I can vouche for a good number of the bands you'll find here, there are so many greats.

Bacchus Archives

Excellent selection here.

Crimes Against Humanity Records

Decent selection, all the merchandise is lumped together though.

Interpunk

Encompases new and old school punk.

Angry Young and Poor Music section

Probably similar results to Interpunk but with more focus on older stuff.

Dead Kennedys; "Mutiny On The Bay"

I know this is a Live album, but is this when they still had Jello as the frontman? I think they switched lead singers once Jello left/kicked out or whatever, and I don't want to buy a live DK album if Jello isn't on it. :shifty:

Jello is the vocalist on "Mutiny on the Bay". I've heard negative things about this album in the past, but I can assure you it is very good.

Here's a fun fact, the Pseudo Kennedys used the lead singer of Dr. Know as their frontman after Jello had departed.
