Highlighting unknown, obscure or simply excellent musicians

A small personal website with the aim to share detailed release information for a number of artists, but also to highlight some items from my collection

Previous Stuff

  • My full collection (a list of it that is) can now be viewed online. I am also working on a new artist page. This time for メトロノーム.

  • The pages for Mirrors, Zebra and Snake and 宇宙戦隊NOIZ are now online. The full discography is available for each artist. Check out Zebra and Snake for regular updates, as a new single and album are coming up soon!

  • Already a new design for the whole website as I did not like the previous one. I will now also concentrate on filling some gaps.

  • The day this website was launched!

    I previously ran a website called Queen Picture Hall, which can be accessed through the About menu. That was dedicated to Queen. This new one will cover multiple artists.

  • Latest collection feature

    Queen US shop display

    Queen were on a roll during the early 80’s. They had a massive hit under their belt with the album The Game in 1980 and released a nice soundtrack album a few months later for Flash Gordon. In November 1981 they released their first compilation album called Greatest Hits, featuring most of their singles. It became an instant success and has to date sold over 25 million copies world wide!

    In order to promote the album, some nice marketing items were made including, but not limited to, posters and promotional copies of the album itself. Besides those items, the US had a mobile shop display which is featured in the photo. It measures 37x37cm/14.5×14.5in in size and the logo, album title and group photo are cut out and tied together with some strings. This allows the outer edge to move and rotate separately from the two inner parts, making a nice effect when in motion.

    A lot of copies were returned or binned after the promotional period ended, making this a hard to find item these days. In fact, this is arguably true for most shop displays so grab it if you find one!
