Obscure Picture sleeves from around the world
In our store we always get obscure PS 45's from around the world in. Knowing that there have been a zillion designers who were only designing picture sleeves all day in all colours and images. There's fascinating examples as usually every country, doing PS's, had their own designs. Pretty interesting and almost endless if you want to collect them!

Ghanese movie poster in our Antwerp Grey Vinyl Treasures
Albie Dornauer, our great transglobal Austrian friend, sold me this Ghanese movie poster that now has its bloody place on the wall of the Antwerp store. Its handpainted. As the artist only got the movie title and a photo of the leading actor the rest was up to his imagination. He had a true bloody imagination or just had had a quarrel with his girlfriend... Who knows. Anyway its Rock 'n Roll and really delivers!

Patrick conrad antwerp counterculture hero b45
Patrick Conrad Antwerp Counterculture hero
In 1972 Belgian poets Nic van Bruggen and Patrick Conrad founded Pink Poets, a group of mainly artists from Antwerp that shared a love for quality restaurants and alcohol. In 1973 Conrad recorded Gelukkig als in het bijzijn van een vrouw with roots man Roland van Campenhout and two session musicians.
The record is one of the very few psychedelic treasures in Belgium. Pressed on 300 copies and most of them vanished, it became a true collector’s item for psych heads and poetry lovers.

Not only does it represent a crucial period in Conrad’s oeuvre, it is also a truly unique cross media collaboration of its time. We hear Conrad reading his poems through an echo chamber, backed up and interspersed with improvised hippyesque folk and effect experiments. On the cover we see Conrad the dandy posing next to a sculpture by Charles Albert Szukalski, the inside of the gatefold sports the poems against a background of opium smokers. This reissue comes with an elaborate essay on the work and a reproduction of the poster of the live presentation at gallery De Zwarte Panter in Antwerp in the same year.

Only 300 numbered records were made. We now have one for sale in our store in Antwerp.
Alan vega only gets better and b46
Alan Vega only gets better and better....
Seeing The Stooges perform at the New York State Pavilion in August 1969 was an epiphany for Vega. In 1966, he met and befriended Martin Reverby. Together, the two began experimenting with music and formed the band Suicide along with guitarist Paul Liebgott. The group played twice at MUSEUM before moving on to the OK Harris Gallery. Calling himself ''Nasty Cut'', he used the terms ''Punk Music'' and ''Punk Music Mass'' in flyers to describe their music, which he adopted from an article by Lester Bangs. In 1971 the group dropped Paul Liebgott and added Mari Reverby on drums, though she didn't play in their live performances. With Bermowitz finally settling on Alan Suicide as a working name, they began to play music venues. Suicide went on to perform at the Mercer Arts Center, Max's Kansas City, CBGB and ultimately, achieve international recognition.

In 1980, Vega released his eponymous first solo record. It defined the frantic rockabilly style that he would use in his solo work for the next several years, with the song ''Jukebox Babe'' becoming a hit single in France. In 1985, he released the more commercially viable Just a Million Dreams, but was dropped from his record label after its release. The album originally was set to be produced by Ric Ocasek as a follow-up to the critically acclaimed Saturn Strip (1983), but production switched over to Chris Lord-Alge and Vega ran into several difficulties during the recording sessions. The album eschewed many of Vega's experimental traits in favor of power pop songs and he later lamented, ''They took all my songs and turned them into God knows what.''

Anyway we have his two solo lp's mentioned in the store in NM condition so better grab 'm before they disappear. Alan Vega is a true Grey heroe!

Bollywood and chutney collection New@Grey Antwerpen
New in our Antwerp Store a big collection of Bollywood and chutney lp's. As the Netherlands have a large Hindi community hailing from Surinam, living mostly in the Hague, now and then collections like this pop up. Chutney music is a unique kinda uptempo raga pop crossover that was developed in the Carribean area. The arrangers of the Bollywood movies had totall freedom in arranging and the records here and there have a fantastic disco feel mixed with a more folkish attitude. Very special stuff. Records are in our Antwerp store now!!!!

Uplifting Bell Ends a major surprise from Australia. We're fan!!
Some bands just have it. That certain kinda special. When you are into lofi garagey poppy psychy weirdo stuff this is where you must pay attention. This mysterious gang from Melbourne Australia started somewhere like a 10 years ago and till now released 3 LP's in disturbing small quantities. Records are filled with that magic that exists when you let go of rules and the wants of the contemporary audience and just do what you want not caring bout a big career or whatever as long as the music, your art, is sticking close to your heart. Melodies are fantastic, musicians are great, mood is magical. What more to say. Grey obtained a pile of this magical third release but it as sold very fast so... Its up to you freaks to surf down the Earthian fast lane to obtain a vinyl platter that will make you more then happy!!! And don't say we did not tip you off!!!
