Making time.

It’s rare for us to post things from Etsy but this clock is so unusual we just had to. The crafter cuts out the clock from an unplayable record with her laser machine . . . in her Alpine, Texas kitchen! The quartz movements are made in the US too. Want a different record? Ask her if custom orders are possible.

$25 + $10 for shipping in the US.

Thanks to David S. in Japan for this find!

This Week's Rare Bit O'Swag: Vespa Sex album by Sta-Prest

StaPrest Vespa Sex.jpg

I have this 7″ framed amongst my other record collectibles. It’s a hoot to listen to and someday I will get it transferred into MP3 form for my iPod.

From Wikipedia:

“Sta-Prest first made its appearance on the queercore record label Outpunk Records, on its compilation Outpunk Dance Party. Soon afterwards they released their first EP, Vespa Sex, also on Outpunk, followed later by a 7″ single. Like other bands influenced by the nascent Riot Grrrl scene in Olympia, Washington, New York No Wave, and European post-punk, core members of Sta-Prest – Aloofah (Iraya Robles), Dudley Manlove (Gary Fembot), and Professor Swish (Stanley Lamontague) – adopted pseudonyms, swapped instruments between songs, and practiced a consensus-based approach to song composition. A revolving membership included Tetley, Twi Tybat, Clutch-y-Spun, and Scout. Their avant-pop sound and combination of male and female vocals were unique in the Queercore scene.”
