Dead weight by definition is a heavy burden. In the case of Underground Records, it is a burden carrying the full weight of their pristine music archives. What they have unearthed here is a cacophony of ear blasting, head banging, goodness usurped from deep within their much-vaunted vaults. They’ve cleverly labelled it ‘Dead Weight’ but it’s far from dead. It’s a mind blowing collection of out-or-print, hard-to-find titles.
Owner and self-confessed vinyl junkie Craig Radcliffe had this to add: “We are talking about releases up to 10 years old, still in brand new, unplayed, virginal condition. It’s like we stole Walt Disney’s fabled Cryonics Chamber and filled it full or records. It’s time to open that capsule.”
Settling on a colour coding protocol…you know, just like sushi, Underground Records vinyl sale will feature Red, green, and yellow dots, representing $15/$25/$35 dollar titles. This will be one intense sale with a lot of incredible releases covering the gamut of Heavy Metal, Rock, Garage Rock, Alternative Rock, Punk, Hard Core, Thrash, Death, Doom, Stoner, Psychedelic Rock, Black Metal, Sludge, and more.
