The seminal T. For balls-to-the-wall rawk, bang a gong along with the 'Raw Ramp'-y 'Fly with the Silver Swan', "slide" along to 'Boogie Mama', and put on your dancing shoes and do the 'Antediluvian Hop'. Bari's own career dates back nearly three decades to his debut as the titular "Lord of The Dark Skies", his debut release under the Outskirts of Infinity moniker on Nick Bevis Frond Saloman's Woronzow imprint Saloman was the Outskirts' bassist on the album!
He also contributed to several Woronzow compilations and played some blistering guitar solos on several Bevis Frond albums including the pseudonymous Scorched Earth , along with solo albums by Frond bassist, Adrian Shaw see review elsewhere , who plays bass throughout in his own spot-on Steve Currie manner. Here his talents as an inveterate interpreter of one of his own biggest influences is lovingly and respectfully presented and has the double advantage of appealing to fans of both its creator and its inspiration.
As mentioned earlier, there are any number of straight Bolan tributes out there cf. Rextasy's Legacy, and the curiously-titled Great Jewish Music. By honouring instead of aping, Watts has created the best of the lot. Skip to main content. Arrives: Oct 14 - Fastest delivery: Oct 5 - 7. Amazon US Return Policy applies to this item.

I then vacuum it off with an inexpensive attachment to my shop vac. I rinse and vacuum twice with distilled water. It even improves the sound quality of some passages. I do this on a small rotating platform using a label protector. If you are cleaning a lot of LPs, the cost is minimal. All my LPs are pristine.
It does a great job of removing debris and static. Seem to be pretty similar but the V. I am pretty certain the brushes inside are made with goat hair. Non-abrasive of course. Then after researching online, I make a home brew for my solution. The key here is not to use too much drying agent, as it will leave a residue that is hard to get off if you do.
Without looking under a microscope or anything like that, they come out super clean and never play back with any static at all. The other thing is I clean my stylus after every record is played. Of course, even brand new records, come filthy with white specs of dust or whatever. So every record is cleaned before going on my turntable and I am then able to achieve an awesome listening experience with no background noise at all, as long as the records do not have a manufacture defect.
Troy no, 30 bucks a bottle. Either as a spray solution with a micro fibre cloth. And later cleaning with distilled water. Or the same as a bath using a disco anti stat device. And later a disc vacuum device. Will that be your next test? With regard to wood glue and the difficulty in application due to undue viscosity, it might help to experiment with diluting glue with distilled water and applying it with a soft brush. The effect should be the same in terms of getting down in the grooves and lifting out particles.
The trick might be finding the dilution sweet spot where it peels off easily. Once the film gets too thin it will probably be more prone to cracking.
As regards cost per record, buying it by the gallon would be more economical than by the smaller applicator bottle size. If ya know what I mean. I appreciate the blog article but what is dumbfounded to see that you did not mention protecting the labels. I realized that these were probably not prized records but I use the glass handling suction cups from the Home Improvement store and stick one on each side to completely seal off the label from any liquid.
I did learn a thing or two about methods I had not heard of before through this article. Thank you for putting it together. I use TergiKleen, 20 drops per gallon. I use it with a vacuum. I buy records from a guy who cleans them ultrasonically. It must be his liquid because I have to clean them again when I get home.
I use stuff called Awsome from the dollar store mix works Awsome spray on wipe of with microfiber rag, dry with haire dryer, wipe again with microfiber and record will look new and shiny. Play record and if crackle is noted go through same process with WD and your record will play crisp and clear eliminating percent of the crackle from dirt that has accumulated in the groves.
I have a collection of LP. Try it on a 1 dollar thrift store record you will be simply amazed. It evaporates quickly and they records look great. Yeah Dirtvinyl… somebody should Shootout these ones!
We talk about groove cleaning not surface cleaning only. Thanks, mate. Sorry typo and I cant edit my comment! Actually Felsuch what you suggest its the only good concept on the market! Come on guys! Unfortunaltely the only really working method has not been tested! The moste here shown solutions have one in common: They do more worse than helping. It is all about mechanics. The grooves are micrometers and is filled with dust and dirt. The wood glue is the only thing going in the right direction.
But there is only one good concept on the market, the Hannl Mera rotating brush. It does not touch the disc itself. It works like this: Cleaning water on the disc that has a good surface tension to the water.

Clear Spot - clearspot.Dec 08, · All my LPs are pristine. Most of them are from the late 60’s to late 70s. I’m still using the same cleaning device that I bought in the mid 70’s, a “Watts Parostatik Disc Preener record album cleaner” By Cecil E. Watts. It’s a small long round brush made of black velvet. and it’s just wide enough to cover the tracks on the record.
