Captain Dompfaff - Let's Spend the Night Together 7" (1980)

A - Let's Spend the Night Together
B - Ein Gefühl


Everything must go!

Some of you have been to my house and you know it's very small.
I have a baby on the way and the little bit of room that I have is getting smaller.
I need to make some room and that means I need to get rid of some stuff.
By "stuff" I mean music. Tapes, CDs, and records. It all has to go. I tried selling some things on Discogs and eBay but it didn't sell. This might be because the wife is a bit too ambitious and she posts it for ridiculous prices. I don't go that route. I will be compiling a list of all of the music I have to get rid of and I'm asking you guys to make an offer.

As some of you know I am willing to trade my original physical copies for MP3s or dubbed tapes or burned CDs. There is a lot of music I still need but I don't need any more stuff.

In two weeks I will be posting the things I have that I need to get rid of. If you have anything on my wishlist  let me know and we'll make a deal.

 I'll post my wantlist/wishlist from Discogs

If you don't have anything on my wishlist but you still want something I have, still, let me know and we'll make a deal. Maybe you have something I don't know about. Some rare ska demos or something.

Naturally, if I have something you want and you don't have any music to offer in return I will sell it and I guarantee I'll sell it for a better price that anyone else.

I have until July to get rid of everything. My loss will be your gain. Everything must go!

The Crystal Set [U.K.] - Know How 7" (1981)

This is probably the only thing released by this band. Not to be confused with the Australian band of the same name. Both sides are ska.

A - Know How
B - Critical Town

The Ventilators - SKA live cassette demo (1991) [UPDATED LINK]

The Swiss band The Ventilators really is one of my favorite bands. They're right up there with Mr. Review. This tape was recorded when they first started out and it shows how amazing they were from the beginning. From what I know there were less than 100 copies of this tape made and the number of them that exist today is God's own private mystery. There are four songs on it and none of them were ever recorded in the studio. The only way to ever hear these songs is from this tape. Unfortunately my copy is warped pretty badly. I tried my best to adjust the sound to make it listenable but the sound quality sucks. Nothing I can do about it.

Most of you will want to skip this one, but Ventilators fans will truly appreciate it.


La banda suiza The Ventilators es una de mis bandas favoritas. Están ahí arriba con Mr. Review. Esta cinta fue grabada cuando comenzaron por primera vez y muestra lo increíble que eran desde el principio. Por lo que sé, hubo menos de 100 copias de esta cinta hecha y el número de las que existen hoy en día es el misterio privado de Dios. Hay cuatro canciones en él y ninguno de ellos fueron grabados en el estudio. La única manera de oír estas canciones es de esta cinta. Por desgracia, mi copia está muy deformada. He intentado mi mejor para ajustar el sonido para que sea audible, pero la calidad del sonido es una mierda. No puedo hacer nada al respecto.

La mayoría de ustedes querrán saltarse éste, pero los ventiladores de los Ventilators apreciarán verdad.
