In the early hours of February 4, 1999, a 23-year-old Guinean immigrant named Amadou Diallo (born September 2, 1975) was fatally shot by four New York City Police Department plainclothes officers: Sean Carroll, Richard Murphy, Edward McMellon, and Kenneth Boss. Carroll would later claim to have mistaken him for a rape suspect from one year earlier, a claim never confirmed by objective evidence. The officers fired a total of 41 shots, 19 of which struck Diallo, outside his apartment at 1157 Wheeler Avenue in the Soundview section of the Bronx.
9/10 … Polish webstore with a focus on rock, hard rock and heavy metal. The website is in Polish, but in the top right corner you can make it English friendly by switching language.
I mainly turn to them when I want bootleg vinyls from 1980’s Heavy Metal bands, but they seem to have a lot of obscure 1970’s rock and prog.
Quick registered shipping from them with good shipping prices. But it seems the Polish postal service is not the fastest in the world. So shipping here to Sweden (almost neighbour countries) it takes about 10 days to receive the package from placing the order.
I have ordered two times and I will definitely return for more. Hopefully I can visit the store as well one day.
I love 1970/80’s music/movie magazines and fanzines made by entusiasts. They capture a moment in time when some of the now big bands where in their early stage of their careers. Ryan Richardson have made a fantastic job scanning these old legendary magazines so you can download them from the websites he set up. Mr […]
9/10 … This is a real coffee table book, 436 pages and a wooping 31x25cm. I sat down with a cup of cooffe and started at the begining. I was imiditlly sucked into this amazing universe and 6 hours later I was still at it. Writting down for me new titles to discover and listening to them on Spotify to see if I wanted to hunt down the vinyl. Another aspect I love about this kind of books is that I feel less crazy for spending so much time and so much money on music. There’s a whole lot of other people out there that are the same.
Year: 1971Genre: Prog/RockFrom: ”Moving Waves” LP I don’t have any direct personal relationship to this track. I’ve heard it on and off during my life. Thought it was pretty good, but didn’t seek it out. Then by accident I came by this live clip from 1973 on YouTube that you can see down below, and […]
9/10 … Stand out tracks are the amazing fuzzy “Lord of Light”, the astounding, mind-warping sound of “Down Through The Night”. “Brainstorm” in its dirtyness and directness, and when the furious “Master of the Universe” comes on, my mind gets blown every time. I even like “Orgone Accumulator”, that has a boogie-rock part that I usually hate, but here I buy it for some reason. Probably because it’s drenched in spaced out rock 🙂
This is a mesmerizing psy-fi grooves masterpiece!
