Nice Infesting The Grave there.

I believe I bought the Star Wars record at Goodwill. It plays like a demo overture that was put out before the movie, though that's most likely wrong.

With vinyl, I generally go for either industrial records that play well cover to cover or grindey stuff that gives better note definition and articulation compared to what it would be in digital, where unfortunately a lot of production jobs leave it sounding inaudible behind an over triggered drum kit that sits too high in the mix. Also, noise punk/D Beat, mostly because they're only put out on vinyl.

Blast from the past! Well it's not so long ago but I dig the complete old school vibe.

My gear plays everything out like harsh noise and I hate that. But I think I know what you're talking about. Even when I'm checking stuff out I do prefer listening to Vinyl rips version over HQ.
Just like here the vinyl rips sounds so much more evil. Guitar upfront, raw and edgy.





That's right, all the d beat stuff I have on cassette tapes sounds like they're vinyl rips. Haha.

Found my grandmother's old stereo yesterday.  Tape deck and turntable combo.  It's too old for CDs.  Got it working today.  Came.  Twice.

Aside from Winds of Dissonance and Vampyric Bvrial I don't have any tapes yet but I have Vradiazei's self titled on the way and placed an order for one of the last remaining copies of Dans la foret...

Anyone know where a nigga can get his hands on an original press of Fuck Me Jesus?  Discogs is out.

IMHO, with such a find, the best way to ensure it will be around forever is lifting the cover and cleaning any dust or grime with compressed air. If you do, try to identify any preamp and power amp tubes and replace them with new ones of the same rating. Replace the table belt unless it's gear driven to make sure play back speed is perfect. If you have an old snow globe with a tiny bit of air in the top, you can stack enough vinyl on the spindle to put it smack in the center and use the bubble to level the table.

For real, old tube decks give a sound that you can't find elsewhere.

Thanks for the tips!  I'll have to look into exactly what it is before I go digging around in it.  I'm not the most mechanically inclined.

If you can give me the make and model (serial number is ideal), I'm bored enough to look up its specs and user manual. I can be more help from there.
