(No) weekly update - 24/10 - Rikard Skizz Bizzi - Ur Funkion LP

First of all, we apologize for the lack of update this week. Both Lars and Carl have been away from the store, and we needed this week to get back on track with all incoming records.
So the records we added today consists mostly of new arrivals of reissues and new releases.
One new release that stands out a little extra is the new LP "Ur funktion" by Rikard "Skizz" Bizzi.
The store hasn't even opened yet, but they have been selling faster than any new release I can remember. Not just one of the best new Swedish releases in a long time, but one of the best Hip-Hop LP's period. Check it out before it's too late (one copy left as I'm writing this)!
Now sold out, but get your copy from the man who made the record himself: www.rikardbizzi.se

Rock, prog and reggae

After some weeks of jazz, soul, funk and disco we today return to rock territory boasting top stuff like The Gods "To Samuel A Son", Rainbow Ffolly "Sallies Fforth", Twentieth Century Zoo "Thunder On A Clear Day". And oh, we all liked the Parish Hall LP a lot more than our rare groove-selves maybe wants to admit.

No rock update without some Swedish rock and prog and this time we have classics like Träd, Gräs & Stenar, Panta Rei, Kvartetten Som Sprägde plus the obscure Järngustav (first time for us).

We also have a bunch of reggae, for example some nice FAB and Blue Beat 7"s, Ossie Hibbert's "Satisfaction In Dub", Freddie McKay's "Lonely Man" and Junior Delgado's "Taste Of The Young Heart".
