Quite the collection!

https://www.discogs.com/user/mark.emsley/collection

just checked, i have only put 88 releases in my profile.
now that i have re-digitised most of the archive i may have to use the current downtime to add a few more.

mark e, Sunday, 29 March 2020 18:28 (nine months ago) link

Hey thanks! xp

I try to keep up with it. Helps when you're good at forgetting what you just got as soon as you file it away.

i got really bored a few years ago and added everything i had. then i merged my partner's collection as well, recently. now i don't buy so many records, so it's just a matter of entering in a couple news ones, every once in a while

Karl Malone, Sunday, 29 March 2020 19:00 (nine months ago) link

Damn I'd wish I'd know those Topdown Dialectic LPs were such limited releases.

Evan, Sunday, 29 March 2020 19:03 (nine months ago) link

yeah, topdown dialectic releases kind of remind me of being into grouper back in the day - she would only press like 500, but the releases were soooo good that you just had to get them. i have only been on top of the topdown game since vol 2, but i am ready to instantly scoop of whatever they release right now

Many added manually before I located the wonderful bar code scanner in the app. Very few CDs scanned so far. UK Garage and dubstep heavy.

Psychocandles (Pyschocandles), Sunday, 29 March 2020 19:12 (nine months ago) link

That was almost still the case even with the latest Nivhek, then it seems there was a repress. I look at the sales history on here often and I wonder if that person that spent the "Max" amount of say $100 on a release that for the most part is pretty easy to find for $20-30 ever since whenever-that-was feels extra silly in hindsight. I've been caught up in the frenzy now and again (mostly on bandcamp), but I've only screwed myself out of saving like $20 at most in the long run.

Evan, Sunday, 29 March 2020 19:14 (nine months ago) link

ehhh there’s so many hundred dollar records from the past few years that I want, I’ve just given up

brimstead, Sunday, 29 March 2020 19:23 (nine months ago) link

Wow Pyschocandles some of those 12"s must be rare and/or pretty sought after. What are your favorites?

Evan, Monday, 30 March 2020 00:29 (nine months ago) link

Didn't know about the bar code scanner, thanks for the tip.

I pretty much only buy used vinyl, so my collection basically only covers up to 1991 or so:

The Ghost, Tempa, Big Apple, DMZ nexus was great to hear unfold at the time. The sound morphed from release to release in fascinating ways. Some of those tracks, even the simpler ones have definitely stood the test of time for me. El-B 'Give a Little Love', Touchdown 'Baby Love', El-B 'Never Say Never' Brandy flip. Those rimshots ;)

Thanks! Definitely order/visit Commend everytime I'm in the city, and always peep what they post! I also work/moonlight at a shop called Luna Music (www.lunamusic.net) in Indianapolis – we have a comparable "left-field" section, and my coworkers are on that wavelength.

If you like the Duster boxset...new Duster falls right in line. Remarkably similar!

Not to BRAG (incoming brag) but I got in on Duster before it became a cult hit. Nabbed Stratosphere back when it was a $10-15 LP via mailorder (can't remember if I got it somewhere dull like Amazon or something about 10+ years ago). But yeah kept putting off checking out the new one. Saw them live a handful of times in recent years ramping up to this release too.

Luna is associated with Tobin Sprout right? I asked him where I could get Let's Welcome The Circus People and he said ask the Luna shop. They got back to me many months ago and said they were putting one on sale for $85. Since that's $40 more than I was hoping to spend I declined and sure enough it's still sitting there in the discogs marketplace today.

I used to manage a store in NJ but rarely would my co-workers be on my wavelength, sounds like I'd have fit in better over there with you guys!

Huh I guess I slept on that Bedhead live album when it came out.

Evan, Monday, 30 March 2020 19:17 (nine months ago) link

The Bedhead reecord is pretty good. Based off this it seems like they translated their live sound to the studio quite well.

haven't logged a lot on discogs but I'm a very active buyer. that old fave artists list needs updating and the wantslist is mostly outdated too. I logged a lot more on RYM where my user name is corcomroe.

Paul, Monday, 30 March 2020 21:48 (nine months ago) link

the wantlist feature sends me daily emails about the same LP, every single day

Karl Malone, Monday, 30 March 2020 22:50 (nine months ago) link

it's the worst... like, I have 500+ items on this thing (most of which I just use because I don't want to forget to investigate them) but it sends me notices for the same 5 records from the same 10 sellers day after day.

justice 4 CCR (Sparkle Motion), Monday, 30 March 2020 23:05 (nine months ago) link

I switched off the wantlist notification emails - I think maybe some sellers re-list their stock regularly to get peoples attention.

I deleted everything out of my wantlist having realised there was stuff that had been in there for ages, was inexpensive but I hadn’t bothered getting.

michaellambert, Monday, 30 March 2020 23:13 (nine months ago) link

xp yeah I fucking take those out of my damn wantlist cuz I hate it so much, the re-listing trick. I wish you had a way to block sellers that do it.

PS if anyone has anything on my mostly ridiculous wantlist, I happily accept YSI options, mostly I just wanna hear them. it's been ruthlessly pared down to things that basically never get sold, so I never get emails.

Here's my mess: https://www.discogs.com/user/dinkytown/collection.

Wanted to get collection insurance, so had a go at cataloging a couple years ago and got through maybe C in rock/etc. and one box of singles before bailing. I don't have the patience to put a bright bare bulb on and look at the runout grooves for Humble Pie's third album to see which plant it was pressed at.

Now I just occasionally enter a record while listening, which makes it all the more futile, if I ever want to have a go at the rest.

Thanks akm, do you have a collection profile too?

Evan, Tuesday, 31 March 2020 01:01 (nine months ago) link

"I don't have the patience to put a bright bare bulb on and look at the runout grooves for Humble Pie's third album to see which plant it was pressed at."

Major label albums from the 60s-70s in particular are such a chore to correctly add for exactly this reason. Sometimes runout isn't even enough to narrow it down (or it feels that way).

Evan, Tuesday, 31 March 2020 01:09 (nine months ago) link

exactly. 77 variants of a record that (even today) is only worth $4. but my OCD won't let me just pick a close-enough option.

Sleeve I checked your wantlist. I wish I had some of those Hurley rarities! And I wish I could help you out otherwise.

I wonder where anyone even finds cassettes NOT online... if a physical store even has cassettes they're common 80s titles or they're brand new indie titles. Never seen anything in between.

Wait, I lied I have some Swirlies cassettes I found in the wild. So besides that.

The little engine that choogled (hardcore dilettante), Wednesday, 23 September 2020 01:22 (three months ago) link

sheesh, that's tough. I think Denki Groove's VOXXX may be it, that's a legitimately hard to find record from a group with basically zero presence in this country

from a personal standpoint maybe Datarock's Red? I saw them in 2009 and got right up front & the lead singer pulled me on up on stage for a couple tunes. bought the record and they all signed it. later got to party & smoke with them in some nightclub. unfortunately it doesn't play too well because my kids love it and have gotten fingerprints and scratches all over it

frogbs, Wednesday, 23 September 2020 01:23 (three months ago) link

three weeks pass...

Hmm feeling a bit lonely as a music fan I think.

It's nice to feel like my passions are 100% due to my own explorations and not due to getting swept up in popular trends, but on the other hand I find chances to geek out with people over this stuff really hard to come by.

Obsessions:
- 80s-90s indie "pop perfection" (Sarah / Drive-in / Slumberland / Flying Nun)
- 90s American style indie rock (post-Sonic Youth / "bedroom" / shoegaze)
- Experimental / Ambient Balearic
- American Primitive

I've got to work really hard to gush about the little known Pam Berry side project 7" over here and the versatility of the Minecraft soundtracks as arguably legitimate ambient music outside gaming nerd context over there...

Evan, Monday, 19 October 2020 18:43 (two months ago) link

_frogbs we have a lot of overlap_


hit me up with some recs then :)

Psychic Paramount (noisy jammy krauty textured loud guitar & drums music)
Dead Skeletons (groovy droney gothy dance-trance music)
Oneida (krauty noisy post-Sonic Youth music, best before 2011)
Field Music (somewhere between early XTC and 80s Yes? Earlier albums better)

The little engine that choogled (hardcore dilettante), Monday, 19 October 2020 19:13 (two months ago) link

can I just say that the wantlist is evil, one day you get a message saying that some store in Japan has 6 records you want and by the way if you order them all you'll save a bunch on shipping! long story short I've got a bunch of "never thought I'd own this" records coming to my house soon

My problem is I get excited about discovering the low price/value of something I want, only to find out all the cheap copies are in Spain or Germany or whatever and shipping is $25 for the first LP. By the time you find a US seller down the list the price is 4x higher.

at least they're honest.

Totally different head. Totally. (Austin), Tuesday, 20 October 2020 02:49 (two months ago) link

also i would assume it's a fairly in demand record if it's literally smashed and they're still trying to sell it. maybe someone has a cooy that's decent, but the cover is beat and they could use that to replace it?

Totally different head. Totally. (Austin), Tuesday, 20 October 2020 02:51 (two months ago) link

its Thought For Food by The Books...20 bucks new. and the new cover is awful!

frogbs, Tuesday, 20 October 2020 02:55 (two months ago) link

but yeah that's kind of a pet peeve of mine - finding something you really want at a good price and then having to read LP1 ONLY IN A BROWN PAPER BAG

frogbs, Tuesday, 20 October 2020 02:56 (two months ago) link

just curious - if you bought something with this description, would you expect for the cover to be completely split down one side?

Media Condition: Very Good (VG)
Sleeve Condition: Good Plus (G+)
Some noise, mostly at beginning of side B, good fidelity. Priced accordingly. Ring wear on jacket, and edges. Inner sleeve included.

what about this one?

Media Condition: Very Good (VG)
Sleeve Condition: Good Plus (G+)
Some minor noise, plays well.

because i had my first ever bad discogs transaction a few weeks ago. besides some weird delays on their ends and no communication/responses whatsover from them, the main thing was that two of the records covers were completely split on the bottom side. i guess technically that falls under "G+" but it would be nice to call that out in the description?

rather than say anything negative, i have elected to just not leave any feedback. i am afraid they will send me more broken record covers in retaliation

president of my cat (Karl Malone), Tuesday, 20 October 2020 03:11 (two months ago) link

but what's baffling is that they have a 100.0% rating across 450 ratings, which makes me think either i was insanely unlucky in my dealings with them, or that they beat up their downvoters

president of my cat (Karl Malone), Tuesday, 20 October 2020 03:12 (two months ago) link

that sucks. hope it wasn't anything too expensive. I had something similar happen to me with a copy of Underworld's Oblivion With Bells - here was the description:

Media Condition: Very Good Plus (VG+)
Sleeve Condition: Very Good Plus (VG+)
clean discs. Sleeve is VG+ with slight edge wear along openings. Spine is excellent, and front/back panels are excellent.

in reality, the sleeve looked like it had water damage and there was some crackle & pop throughout, particularly on Side D (which is my favorite side). maybe a good cleaning will fix it but who knows. didn't wanna leave bad feedback though because it was appropriately priced for the condition it actually was in

frogbs, Tuesday, 20 October 2020 03:21 (two months ago) link

yeah, the records in question were band on the run ($6 CA) and beatles '65 ($10 CA). and both of them do sound really nice!

president of my cat (Karl Malone), Tuesday, 20 October 2020 03:24 (two months ago) link

that's a bummer, and it certainly would have been nice for them to mention it, but i think ultimately they're not wrong so :/

what might make you feel better is to buy a couple new white disco sleeves and store the LPs in there, with the record cover "displayed" in front inside of the clear outer sleeve (does that make sense?)

i do that with some of the flimsier brazilian / african record jackets i have and always find it makes for a nice crisp presentation in those cases where the original sleeve doesn't really "support" the LP y'know

budo jeru, Tuesday, 20 October 2020 03:24 (two months ago) link

yep, yeah that's what i'm doing! it's ultimately not that big of a deal, and i mainly just care about the LP quality, so i'm good there! i'm trying to pretend that i've always owned a sweet copy of both of those records, but recently, as i was carrying them down the stairs to show to my friend on my stoop ("hey check out this LP Band on the Run, as well as "Beatles '65!", i tripped and both of the bottom edges slipped as we tumbled down into the doorway. oh well, at least they still sound good!

president of my cat (Karl Malone), Tuesday, 20 October 2020 03:29 (two months ago) link

Gerald McBoing-Boing, Wednesday, 21 October 2020 22:32 (two months ago) link

The Psychic Paramount are great but Laddio Bollocko (feat drummer Blake Fleming) were the absolute tits and unfairly passed over at the time for bands like Don Cab.

Maresn3st, Wednesday, 21 October 2020 22:49 (two months ago) link

four weeks pass...

oof, got another one

Comments: Vinyl looks great, only a few storage and shuffle marks, no effect on sound. Labels display very bright colours, almost as if unplayed. Sleeve in near mint condition, practically no wear except for the front lower left edge, barely noticeable.

the vinyl was visibly scuffed up and there was audible surface noise throughout the entire thing, especially on the second record. do I just not understand what "VG+" means? I get that when buying used online there's some inherent risk there but still obnoxious when it's a holy grail type record you have to import while the $4 VG copy of the first Starcastle record I got actually sounds pretty much perfect

frogbs, Friday, 20 November 2020 16:23 (one month ago) link

nah that's total bullshit, blatant lazy overgrading. I'd return it.

howls of non-specificity (sleeve), Friday, 20 November 2020 16:49 (one month ago) link

you know what's strange about this, of all the records I've ever bought online I've only had 3 that were clearly worse than their marked condition and all 3 of them were Underworld records

frogbs, Friday, 20 November 2020 17:05 (one month ago) link

Let u know how i get on with the pink Rez VG+ i just ordered, lol. Their fancy new lithograph print of the thing pushed me!

I don't sell much, but more than one feedback thanked me for "conservative grading". i understand VG+ to mean looking and or sounding just a little worse than right out of the shrinkwrap (i.e, NM).

I've never been clear on how pressings that might be noisy to begin with factor into it.

haha, I nearly bought the pink Rez 12" this morning too! I have the official Cowgirl / Rez 12" so don't really need the pink rez, but that print made me want it. I also need a new copy of the Dirty 12". My copy looks perfect but sounds horrible.

brotherlovesdub, Friday, 20 November 2020 17:32 (one month ago) link

also, on the UW merch tangent, could they have worse merch? The absolutely garbage "graphic design" they've been using is worse than amateur. Such a shame considering their connection to Tomato. I'm stunned at how incredibly shit their merch has become. Anyway, the music is what matters.

i like the pink tee! 25 squids plus shipping to Canada tho.............nah

maf you one two (maffew12), Friday, 20 November 2020 17:39 (one month ago) link

it's Barking, sucks because that one is super limited, one of those albums where most available copies are shrinkwrapped ones for 5x MSRP. I guess the good thing is it's one of those albums where you can live with some noise since it's not exactly a subtle record. the only track it really bothers me on is "Louisiana". idk maybe I'll take it to the cleaner and see if that helps

totally agreed on the UW merch thing, it's weird b/c they have so many cool sleeve designs, like the gatefold OWB is breathtaking. then on the other hand you have Drift with a very visible Photoshop fail on the cover, and the boxset itself which just omits the photo entirely. like LCD Soundsystem's American Dream even when the thing's in your hands you can't believe that's the actual art and not a placeholder

I was looking back and feel bad I overlooked this collection. Great stuff! Lots of taste overlap. Some things jump out as "ilxor albums" to certain degrees.

Brings to mind how a few years ago I tried to buy Blue Nile's Hats off of a friend's MOM of all people. Not that it's unthinkable but I sincerely doubt she'd thought about that album in 20 years until that point. It made no sense sitting there in that bin of theirs. An industry friend gave it to her, she said. Still wouldn't give it up! That album has never really grabbed me the way I was hoping it would, but I thought I might come around sometime and it is pretty collectable AND this copy was mint. Oh well.

I still don't "get" The Blue Nile but ofc I have Rooftops in my collection due to ILM, found it cheap sometime in the late 00s

I LOVE Studio. I very much get that one. But I don't "have", alas.

Thanks Evan! I’m not a prolific poster here, but I’ll admit to copping plenty of ilxor-bait - Blue Nile, Alabaster Deplume, 75 Dollar Bill, Gigi Masin, ECM stuff, for starters…

No Studio yet! But I keep buying D. Lissvik solo projects to fill that yawning gap.

Well Gigi Masin is another tip top favorite for me as well. Sometimes the hype is super justified!
