Melvins - Houdini

I can't believe there aren't more Melvins fans among the SY fans.

didn't john quit the band? i wonder how they are doing in the guitar dept. though i didn't like the men signing in the runners four. it's 100% satomi for me.

Chris Cohen quit the band, their second the guitarist. They can play without him (i've seen videos of them opening for radiohead) but there is a little bit lacking in the guitar dept. Nonetheless, they will be awesome this sunday.

I think what we have here is a failure to communicate.

I do have 5 copies of the first VU album. But none of them are first-pressing copies. That would mean a copy with the peel-able banana from 1966. I have: a German-made Polydor pressing (kind of cheesy, no gatefold); a 1990 CD; and three recent gatefold reissues (one regular stereo copy, one banana-yellow vinyl copy, and one mono-mix copy).

I have only one copy of Blonde on Blonde, a M- vinyl copy pressed in the 1980s. Again, of course, hardly an original. And only in stereo, not the rare mono mix.

My former employer has a fairly decent original of that first VU LP with an unpeeled banana; PM if you want the hookup.

Wow. You mean, to sell? Probably too rich for my blood, I'm sure.

It's 85 bucks, and it's VG+. He has a super-mint original of White Light/White Heat w/ "Skull" cover for 60, which I think is a better value, personally. Either one is a pretty good deal as far as collector prices go though, IMO.

gmku 08.07.2006 02:42 PM

Yeah, those aren't bad prices, really. I've probably spent enough on VU recently though.

LittlePuppetBoy 08.07.2006 02:43 PM

White Light/White Heat

gmku 08.07.2006 02:43 PM

Love it.

Savage Clone 08.07.2006 02:44 PM

Yeah, if I had 5 copies, I wouldn't be in much of a hurry to spend 85 bones on a 6th.
