Snagged a copy off of Amazon UK for decent price. I am wondering though if this is one of those books that Amazon print and bind themselves?
Mine apparently came from "Lightning Books UK".

Re: Rusted Metal (Book) & Heir Apparent - Graceful Inheritance

Would love to get a copy, but the shipping cost is killing me. I hope some European dealer/distro will order qty soon. Might have to ask James if there are any plans for that. German Amazone had it for sale. Got my copy there for a human postage rate. The book is huge, but with thin paper/cover, th...

Re: Metal Collecting ..only for the rich & elderly?

There are annoying aspects to it, but I am more worried about monetization by bands and lables reducing the artistic integrity of new heavy metal rock than I am the record hunting aspect of things. To much focus on sale of image and performance not enough on actual music composition and concepts, t...

Re: Metal Collecting ..only for the rich & elderly?

Things that have become cheaper: many nwobhm singles. Other things that have become cheaper: once the first discovered copy of an unknown US hard rock/metal single sells for $$$ to one of the big time collectors, the price on the one listed next drops dramatically. And last and not least (and I'm su...

Re: Insane Ebay Auctions - Vinyl, Tapes & Merch

Wow, you must have browsed through a lot of threads on this forum just to find that message. ;-) Yeah, buying a record for 30 SEK (about €3) and selling it for 200 (about €20) is surely killing the collecting scene. Especially since the average Discogs price for this item was 220 SEK (€22) to begin ...

Re: Insane Ebay Auctions - Vinyl, Tapes & Merch

With nowadays prices I think record collecting is becoming more and more of a hobby for the elderly with disposable income anyway :P Thats what i think too. Man that sucks if it's the case. I don't want heavy metal collecting to turn into punk collecting, where all big collectors wear suits and hav...

Someone wanted it so bad. Unfortunately this has been happening in the last few years. Who are these buyers? Young people with money or old school guys?
Don't most old school guys have this already? One of the more common "rarities"...

Ron Quintana used a similar term in Metal Mania #10, not sure if he was the first.

Re: V/A : Jobcentre Rejects Vol 4 - Ultra Rare FWOSHM 1978-1983

Do Swedes actually call social security 'the dole', or is that a tie-in with the Jobcentre Rejects theme & a nod to the circumstances most NWoBHM bands were formed in? No we don't, that's purely an English expression. So most likely tied to the fact that the label focuses on releasing bands who wen...
