Monolith's Tales of the Macabre LP

Post#1 » Mon Oct 13, 2008 12:51 am

Hey,

I just won an eGay auction for the Monolith's Tales of the Macabre test pressing LP. There's very little information on that obscure band from the UK other than the fact that Nick Barker was the drummer for them. Is there any reason why this album never made it beyond the test pressing stage?

In any case, I might have gotten an interesting little gem without really knowing much about them when I won it.

hmm...I have an automatic search on ebay, and this hasn't popped up. Was the auction's title not "Tales Of The Macabre" but shortened ? However, it is one of the rarer Headache Records LP (under the pre-condition that it really was released by Headache)

It was titled as "Tales of Macabre", sans the "the" part from the eBay auction.

By the way, it was already bootlegged by Eternal Darkness Rec./USA some years ago on CDR.

doesn't Ebay bring up searches if words like "the" aren't in them anyways? I don't know if it does for auto searches, but it does for manual ones, right?

The manual or auto search works the same way.

maybe ebay search ignores "the" if the search phrase begins with it, but trying to search that item in copleteted listings also won't find it. "tales of macabre" though, is there..
sometimes that search engine is kinda fucked. I have found stuff (completed, international) rather via google than directly at ebay sometimes, even if not older than 3 mths..

Sometimes, I find active eBay auctions via Google. In ways, it works in wondrous ways if I'm not arsed to sift through dozens upon dozens of auctions.

Anyways, I reckon that nobody has any sort of information regarding this little elusive release, no?

The same and only Nosliw.

As soon as the album arrives, I can make some recordings of the album to the computer. If anyone is interested in that proposition, let me know.

'nosliw' is not a palindrome.
