PostSubject: looking for..   Sun Feb 12, 2012 8:13 am

hi there,
im new to the board. Ive been having a look around and it seems you have quite a nice community of people i hope someone can help me out.
Im looking for the usuals that are nigh on impossible to find these days: Show of Hands, Sweet Harness and Common Grounds vinyl. No particular pressings... as of yet. Ive trawled the 'net and im struggling a little. Anyone wishing to part with any of these or know where theres an unlikely magical store that might have something for sale please let me know. I know these are already rare as rocking horse doodoo and even more so as the band grow in popularity.
Many thanks
J
ps. go easy on me Smile

Hello,

The merchnow links from when The Joy Of Living came out still have Common Grounds and the rarest variant of TJOL as available:

http://new.merchnow.com/products/125263
http://new.merchnow.com/products/125260

I'd perhaps drop them an e-mail first though to check.

Someone on Discogs is selling Common Grounds (bit pricey though!):
http://www.discogs.com/sell/list?release_id=2526771&ev=rb


Swagger city still have the black split 7" with Northern Towns:
http://swaggercityrecords.storenvy.com/products/16530-sharks-northern-towns-split-2x7


Banquet have the white Shallow Waters and white TJOL:
http://www.banquetrecords.com/sharksshallow
http://www.banquetrecords.com/RISE600259

It seems Show Of Hands and Sweet Harness are hard to find now, sorry I couldn't help.

Hey, welcome to the board!

I've just found this http://www.ebay.com/itm/SHARKS-SWEET-HARNESS-VINYL-LP-RECORD-90-THE-JOYS-LIVING-/250977124108

Its the grey version of Sweet Harness with the deer on, although if you did want it, you'd have to ask the seller if he is willing to ship outside of the US.

Sadly, as SL1210 says, they are all getting really hard to find, especially now that the guys are getting quite popular. I'll keep a look out for anything for you in the mean time

JipC, there is a 10" comp featuring Sharks available here: http://serioustypes.bigcartel.com/product/serious-types-1

Not sure if you knew about that one or not. It's from my local town here in Northampton.

If you are interested in the japanese TJoL, you can buy it at Vinyl Junkie

http://vinyl-junkie.com/index.php?amount=0&blogid=3&blogid=2&query=sharks


But you should probably search on Ebay instead. When I bought mine it ended up quite expensive with taxes and all. But the t-shirt looks nice though. http://p.twipple.jp/L2hf2

Flippin 'eck! Cheers guys. Much appreciated. Theres a couple there ive investigated to no avail. I emailed the guy on ebay about Sweet Harness (almost a week ago) and never got a reply. I ended up making an offer to see if that got his attention but no go. I also saw the ones on discogs and contacted the fella about Common Grounds to see if he may drop the price a little... again, no reply. Banquet used to be my local record stop (before i moved to Spain) and they've always been great and are putting the feelers out for me.

But ill be checking out the other links for sure, many many thanks once again. I feel honoured to be part of this awsome board.

Ill let you know how i get on. Thanks again.

PostSubject: update on my purchases :)   Tue Feb 14, 2012 11:32 am

Hola!
Well ive just sent payment to the fella on eBay about the Sweet Harness /90... i just dropped £25 with shipping for that. A little more than i would normally allow myself to pay for a 7" but hes stating its mint, unplayed and its a rare one. Also i know id go back to my watchlist and it'll say "auction Ended" and then id be forever gutted. I have to justify these things to make myself feel better!!!!!

Dropped merch now an email about TJoL grey haze and CGs 7" and they havent gotten back to me other than to refund my pre order for No Gods stating that the tri-colour and Covers 7" should have been available outside of the bundle (pissed off big time). SO i went ahead and just ordered the 2, if they go through then great if not i guess i'll be getting a refund again.

Oh and thanks to SL1210. I PMd the guy about purple Shallow Waters. Awaiting his reply.

Thanks you all loads. Youve been bloody brilliant... its cost me a small fortune!

Hola amigos!
Hope you're all well. Just an update on my purchases. A white version of Sweet Harness came through the door yesterday, very sweet indeed and Common Grounds 7" (from that MerchNow link) is on its way (many thanks to SL1210 for the heads up!). Also contacted someone about the Northern Town splits and some test presses of that. Aces!
Thanks again and a great weekend to you all.

WOW that's a lot more than the £6 or so I paid for it. I really regret not buying a Show of Hands vinyl when it was easily available back in Oct 2010 Sad

However I did luck out massively and get TJoL deluxe package for £16.45 on the old 'bay. Still can't believe that one!

Congrats for adding to your collection anyways Very Happy

Haha, well what happened was this was like May last year? I was finishing my GCSEs so I my mum was going to bid on it in the day just before it ended (she works as a teacher). But her boss pulled her out to talk to her like 20 minutes before, and whatever they did lasted longer than 20 minutes so I missed it haha

Wow this is really weird, small world!

"Also contacted someone about the Northern Town splits and some test presses of that"

Hey, did you have any luck with those Northern Town splits?
I'm looking to buy some of those variants as well.
So if you can hook me up with a contact name that would be ace Smile
Did you manage to get the test press of that to? If so, where from?

If anyone knows where to find a copy of Show of Hands or Common Grounds that'd be great. It's the only vinyl releases I'm missing I think.

No, they did just put it so it says out of stock though. I wish they did earlier! But you may have snagged the last one or something. I'd assume so if you haven't received an email like I did.

Oh right, yeah I guess I may have got the last one. It's annoying, I'd love to get a copy of Show of Hands/ Sweet harness 7", but they're near impossible to find now. I should have bought them when they were out haha
