The Real Beast of Box Sets is Here, Fancy Yachts and L*****d Socks…sorry T-Shirts


Hi everyone,

Hope the form is good…

A good load of  ye asking how long the auld 2 for 30 vinyl sale is going on for….the rest of the summer would be the plan folks…i hope to get more titles into it again in july…spruce it up a bit is the hope.

Right so, releases in audio emporium  for this week include new albums by GORILLAZ, FLORENCE ( the yellow indies only lp got cut by about 20% of my order but still have a nice few…im on this uk record shop owners facebook group thingy…so i check in there fairly regularly and we seem to do OK with stuff ( as in our allocations of the l*****d stuff are not to bad) it seems that the florence indie version was a problem for a fair few shopkeepers over yonder) BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE  ( cute name ) and RAY DAVIES.

A blast of reissues also out today including the debut by GUNS N ROSES, called “ appetite for destruction” i think, BRUCE DICKINSON, BOWIE, BOWIE again, MADONNA, GOVT MULE, CLAPTON and BUFFALO SPRINGFIELD.

I know i have reached on these pages before but this one takes the biscuit i think to be fair…but there is a new yacht after coming on the market in monte carlo ( i don’t think ye would  to have heard about it ) and it’s a beauty so with that in mind here are the details on the GUNS N ROSES appetite LP box set..

Shane i need your help here.

On the Sony theme…there are a few DEPECHE MODE boxes..the cap is out again says ye and ye’d be right…not an ounce of shame in it either it seems Raymond boy…anyway there are a few Depeche Mode boxsets been released at the end of August and we are doing a thing with them..

Here’s the sceal with them first..

We are very pleased to be able to share a confirmed timeline for the release of the first two Depeche Mode 12” single collections – Speak & Spell & A Broken Frame. These numbered limited edition vinyl boxes collect the reproductions of the original 12″ singles from each album, faithfully reproduced from original artwork and remastered from the original audio tapes at Abbey Road in London.

The stock for these titles is strictly limited, you will not be able to get more stock than the your original order (listed below). Please note, these boxes do not contain the album. It is just the singles.


Ok here are the preorder links from our website…

And the it comes…there are tee shirts available with pre orders but only up to 10 tees for each set….heres a pic of the tees…

.a different tee available for each different set ( a speak and spell tee and a broken frame tee)…20 tees in total 10 of each….but 5 names in book for each set already so five of each left…christ i made that confusing id say…if interested let us know sure…


PIAS for the 6th of July have the 77/78 debut album…well its really a side project of THE BEES …i like it , its called “Jellies”.

PIAS also have a live album by ERASURE on 2 cd or 3 lp.
