Just got back from a weekend in Columbus, Ohio. Just a quick getaway but did manage to find a little time to check out Used Kids Records (a vinyl mainstay for a long time...) and some other smaller shops. Was really surprised that Urban Outfitters had a selection of new vinyl. Guess vinyl is kind of, dare I say it, trendy? There is great irony in this because your hardcore vinyl folks are, in general, not exactly hip.
Anyhow, found a few gems for a buck a piece:
- Enigma 12" to add to my vinyl copy of MCMXC a.D.
- a copy of a Red 7 album I didn't even know existed
- a 12" promo of Underworld before they became "cool"
- a vinyl copy of Indio's Big Harvest (this received some press after Eddie Vedder covered the track "Hard Sun" in the movie Into the Wild)
