If you’re looking for an album that has amazing guitar and vocals in it, listen to Sheer Heart Attack, Queen’s third studio album. I love listening to Queen on a lazy Saturday. Killer Queen is one of the first songs I remember hearing from Queen and I have loved it ever since then. Which tunes did you spin today? •
Finally back home at my vinyl corner!
First spin some beatles 💕
I've also noticed how my collection grew during the summer, now 5 shelves are full and my 7" soon filled too. Slowly needing a new kallax 😂

Next up is a recent purchase Queen - We Are The Champions. This is a 1977 U.K. pressing with We Will Rock You on the B-side (an amazing b side). Pressed on EMI and comes with the custom Queen label with the Queen logo. Comes with the picture sleeve which is just a section of the New Of The World cover. What’s your favourite Queen single?
On this day in 1994, Organized Konfusion released “Stress: The Extinction Agenda.”🔥🔥
In my opinion, one of greatest albums of all time, and one of the most underrated. Dark, atmospheric, bass-heavy production throughout the album, mostly by Prince Po and Pharoahe Monch, with the exception of a few from Buckwild and Rockwilder.
And of course, beyond impressive lyricism from one of the best lyricists of all time, Pharoahe Monch, as well as Prince Po. The intricate, complex, multi-stylistic rhymes on this album absolutely destroy conventional standards of how to rap, and are some of the best ever recorded in my opinion.
My favorite tracks are: Bring It On, Stray Bullet, Why, Thirteen, Maintain, Let’s Organize & Black Sunday what are yours? 👇🏼 @pharoahemonch#OrganizedKonfusion#StressTheExtinctionAgenda
Coldplay - A Rush Of Blood To The Head (2002)
What a lovely weather we‘re having over here in Germany! #NOT 😑 Rain, rain, rain. So as much as I love to go out, I am totally fine staying in on a Saturday evening, just listening to music, reading, drawing, writing...whatever. 😊
Can hardly believe it’s been 17 years since this masterpiece was released - I used to listen to it 24/7 back in the days. And still until today, it’s my favourite Pop record of the 2000s, and (in my humble opinion) the best thing they ever released. Though I also love „Parachutes“ and „X&Y“ a lot. But this one...is just flawless. Flawless, perfect Pop songs. My fave here, and actually one of my overall fave songs of all time: „The Scientist“. Back in 2005, I saw them live for the first time, somehow managed to get to the front row - this song had me in tears! 💙 Underrated gem: „Warning Sign“. Just perfect, perfect, perfect.
ALL ORIGINAL **RARE** 1968 Mono pressing of Elvis' Speedway soundtrack! Still in the original shrink wrap with the sticker, and including the bonus photo. Check it out on our eBay page before it's too late! Link in bio
A singer-songwriter's self-titled album, on an unknown-to-me indie label, with ornate packaging (die-cut cover and 14 page booklet), AND it's a promo copy -- this checked so many boxes for me that I just HAD to buy it. Turns out a couple of these songs were anthologised recently by @lightintheatticrecords on the Sing It High Sing It Low: Tumbleweed Records collection. Good stuff.
Pork Pie wearing Matt probably takes the crown (gettit?) for QR’s longest serving customer. He’s been frequenting the store for more than 24 years and says the reason is as obvious as the hat on his head.
“I could go to any record store,” he says. “But I come here because of the people, Matt, Kell, Antonios. It’s the gift of music. I just love the way it connects people and brings them together.”
Matt, who says his occupation is predicated on getting paid to do as little as possible, says the first record he ever bought was Billy Joel’s Innocent Man (1983), an album he recently repurchased at Quality Records.
His other aural staples include anything by Springsteen, Pearl Jam, Dr John, Tom Waits, and Zeppelin. But he’s always on the hunt for rare recordings by Alabama rhythm and blues singer/songwriter, Big Mama Thornton (the first person to record Lieber and Stoller’s number one hit “Hound Dog” in 1953), and the ultra-rare Eric Clapton/Steve Winwood recording Live at Madison Square Garden (2009). .
Matt, who plays a bit of blues guitar at home in Armadale, says the Pork Pie hat is a new purchase: “I got it in Noumea a few weeks ago. Someone stole my hair so I needed something to keep the follicles nurtured and nourished.”
All we can say is “Go Mateo!”. 👏
Botch - American Nervoso - Hydra Head Records - 1998 - Green Vinyl - Limited to 3000 - 2013 Record Store Day
Often imitated, never duplicated. Is Botch the best “metalcore” band? Is Botch the most influential “metalcore” band? I think the answer is probably to both questions. Also, I don’t really consider Botch a metalcore band hence the quotes. It’s pretty crazy how many trends have come and gone and yet countless bands have been trying to sound like Botch for the last 20 years. Obviously this record smokes.
