Brunswick digs for vinyl gold
BRUNSWICK Heads is about to explode with vinyl treasures after local DJ Matt Bowden spent five weeks sourcing some of America's finest vinyl gold.
The end result: a shipping container filled to the brim with fresh, original US pressings heading our way which Bowden describes as all killer and no filler.
"The quality of stock is super high this year,” Bowden said.
The new stock will make up a large portion of the 40,000 records on offer at this year's Brunswick Heads Record Fair which runs from December 31.
"We've got everything from jazz and soul to rock and blues, country, surf, 50s rock 'n' roll, there's soundtracks, punk, new wave, indie, hardcore heavy rock, death metal, psychedelic, funk, hip hop, house, disco, techno, drum and bass and reggae,” Bowden said.
"There's loads of rare, highly sought after picks for serious collectors; stuff you don't often see around here.”
In its third year, the five-day-event coincides with Falls Festival.
"Regardless of what you're into, you'll pick up some classic tunes at this year's fair,” Bowden said.
