Besides all the remarkable gifts available from CKUT for your pledge, for listeners of The Kitchen Bang Bang Law, I’m offering a special selection of vinyl LPs from this year’s crate-digging (all in sweet shape). Impossibly rare Canadian indie vinyl by The Dub Rifles, Three O’Clock Train and Courage of Lassie, rare pre-Velvet Underground Lou Reed recordings, Aphrodite’s Child still in the shrinkwrap, Tangerine Dream, Public Image Ltd. … something for everyone! (None of the vinyl records are current reissues, they’re all from back in the day.) And for the first time ever I’m offering a clutch of vintage cassettes, just for you!
