This is a track from the four track EP from Noble Thieves. - Order Here.

It is being pressed by Analog Revolution Records, as a 10” Mono Poly-Blend 45RPM EP. 

We’re pressing these things by hand, in my living room. It’s fucking crazy.

1960s HMV Store | 363 Oxford Street, London | Electrical Appliances, Stereophonic Players, & Vinyl Records

HMV stands for His Master’s Voice, the title of a painting by Francis Barraud of the dog Nipper listening to a cylinder phonograph, which was bought by the Gramophone Company in 1899.

Wow. I wish. That this was our store. It’s so pretty.

This is a british 45. You can tell from the green writing around the edges (at a glance) or from the words “Mfd. in U.K.” under the copyright date.
British 45s sound great. 
I have a copy of the American version of the “Paperback Writer/Rain” single and a British copy. They are both spotless, clean, and well cared for. The American copy is noisy. It just has a lot of surface noise. You don’t really notice it when you listen to it, and it sounds good. If it was the only copy I had ever heard, I wouldn’t be complaining. But then I put on the UK copy. And there just isn’t any surface noise. It is dead quiet. The music is clearer and their is no noise behind it. No hiss, no crackle, just a perfect fucking single. 

I hope that, one day, the singles and LPs we’re pressing at Analog Revolution sound as good as the one coming out of the UK in the 60s and 70s did.

Famous Blue Raincoat. That’s the record he’s playing, I’d bet money on it. (Is that even supposed to be a sad song? I don’t think it matters.)

This band opened for The Kills and Jeff The Brotherhood when they played their most recent tour. 

The lead singer is a tiny blonde girl with a pixie cut. She spent most of her time on stage on her knees, grinding against the lead guitarist. This is not a bad thing.

The music is catchy. It has a pop/punk feel to it, but in a sincere and entirely unironic way. It feels familiar, even the first time you listen to it. (at least it did for me. ) 

Listen, Enjoy.

Insound has the vinyl for $12. Anyone want to get it for me, for my birthday?

Bo Diddly/I’m a man 
Shelac/Clay 78 RPM single. Circa 1955. 
This is one of my favorite pieces from my personal collection. Pressed into a remarkably brittle clay, this is the quintessential song of early rock and R&B. 
I’ve been sitting on this one for a while. I picked it up a few years ago at an estate sale, because it was too awesome to pass up, but I’ve never owned a record player that was designed for playing 78s. I’ve still got it. I’ve only listened to it twice, the first time shortly after I purchased it, the second time last night as I recorded audio samples using a friends turntable. To be frank, it was amazing. 78s sound… just different. What they lack in fidelity they make up for in character, in force. They transform familiar songs into something wholly other. 
On the table we used it played through without skipping. It was a bit noisy, but that is the way of these things. As I said, I’ve recorded some audio samples, and I will post them soon. 
I honestly don’t want to get rid of it. I’m even less inclined to upon hearing it again, but I can’t justify keeping it without the ability to listen to it.I’m planning on selling it, but I’d like to avoid eBay and the like.  It’s a really cool, and rather obscure find, and I thought I’d give the folks here at tumblr the first crack at it. 
I’m asking $50 for the record, plus shipping. We can handle payment through paypal or google checkout. 
More photos (and an audio sample) available upon request. 
And if my advertising has offended your delicate sensibilities, let me know that too. I don’t want to alienate any of my followers.
