64. V.A. – BREAKING THE PLASTIC HYMEN, VINYL VIRGINS & LO-FI WHORES: “S/T” (Fisheye – School 2) (2 EP Single Record: Near Mint/ Picture Sleeve: Near Mint/ Insert: Near Mint). Original 1997 release in top shape. Here is an excellent collection of strange noise, low-fidelity songlike things and other beauties, released as two double-7" sets )and later as a box with all four 7"s in it) by Fisheye Records in 1997. I think it was supposed to be a compilation by people who hadn't yet had anything out on vinyl, but the concept may have been out of date by the time the records came out. Not that it matters. Music by The Shadow Ring, Wingtip Sloat, Rake, Hood, Prick Decay, Glands of External Secretion, Tea Culture, Noggin, The Negative Kite, Richard Youngs, Simon Wickham-Smith, and other names that I'm too tired to type right now. If any of the names I just listed caused a twinge of excitement in your brainstem, then you already know this was made for you. Price: 20 Euro

72. V.A. – PEBBLES: “Vol. 9 – Original Punk Rock From The psychedelic Sixties” (BFD records – BFD-5026) (Record: Near Mint/ Jacket: near Mint, still housed in shrink). "The first signs of decline on this folk-rock/punk volume. Several classics and a good consistency. But this is still a damn hot set. The Pretty Girl by the Bugs is maybe one weaker cut but other than that this flows magnificently. I have to say that listening to this now, it is much better than I remembered or expected it to be. Very consistent and utterly delirious in a good way, just love it. Price: 20 Euro
73. V.A. – PEBBLES: “Vol. 14 – Original Punk Rock From The Psychedelic Sixties” (Archive International productions – AIP-10016) (Record: Near Mint/ Jacket: Near Mint). Original 1984 release, Highs in the Mid Sixties - originally compiled as a semi-bootleg vinyl compilation in the 1980s, as a thematic follow-up to the classic proto-punk anthology Nuggets, Pebbles became a legitimate anthology of rare and vintage garage rock singles from the style's 1960s heyday. The point of the Pebbles compilations has always been that they take it as given that the listener is familiar with the best-known works in the style, such as the The Golden Cups' ear-blistering rendition of "Hey Joe." So these tracks are filled with the more obscure and often downright unhinged, like The Morning Dew’s "No More," or the amazing untitled bonus track that makes you wish you were just there and…well ya know… This makes Pebbles an excellent second step into the garage rock underground. Price: 30 Euro
