Land Of Treason…
…started in 1993 (in Manchester), moved to Dorset in 1995. Went on a long hiatus in 2003. Back again in 2018.
I sell just vinyl at the moment. Vinyl seems to be the most popular these days, and it is my prefered medium, and always has been, mainly because I love the sleeve artwork. But, all formats are cool, I can easily order CDs and Tapes for you, if and when they are available.
Some records come and go at quite a rate, so by all means, message me to reserve items. I don’t order in huge quantities, but I am able to restock items pretty quickly. Keep your eye on the Out of Stock page to see some of what is available to re-order. I update it on a regular basis.
On the whole, I stock releases I know and like, or that I at least share some kind of affinity with. And of course, all suggestions and helpful pointers are welcome…. please!!
I avoid the bands with members who have been outed as creepy sex pests. Or bands who have any kind of affiliation to bigotry. Therefore all Oi! and black metal bands are guilty by association unless they make it blatantly clear to the contrary. Sorry, them’s the rules. I can’t stand nazi apologists.
In order to mitigate the horrendous pollutants that go into the manufacture of vinyl records I attempt an eco-friendly approach to packaging your orders: 90% of the time I use pre-used carboard and avoid buying fresh mailers. I also use water based acrylic packaging tape (‘envirotape’).
The manufacture of vinyl records involves shitloads of fossil fuels, chemicals and energy. But I’m positive one day soon an inventive soul will come up with a non plastic record that works just as well if not better than PVC. Until that day, we all gotta’ choose wisely! My personal policy is only buy it if I’m going to play it more than a few times. ‘No!’ to single-use records. You dig?
Now go lay down your soul to the gods rock & roll…
