Pete Majors (Manager @ Vacation Vinyl + Vocalist of Harassor) digs his OG set up + some good tunes!!

Hey Matt,
 
I’ve been using a Gemini XL-500 turntable for the last 13 years.

I purchased it in ’99 when my passion for vinyl peaked. I have many record players but this is my main one.  I’m a fan of Grado cartridges and I’m currently using a Gold Prestige.

Some records in regular rotation on my turntable of late…
 
ULVER “Childhood’s End” 2xLP (Jester Records) …the ever evolving Norwegian group who’s earliest output was raw and blistering Black Metal in it’s purest form.  Their latest project is a covers record of classic psych/garage bands…Pretty Things, Gandalf, 13 Floor Elevators, Music Emporium etc.

JK FLESH “Posthuman” 2xLP (3by3 Records) …the closet sound to Godflesh since their demise.  I hear all of Justin Broadrick’s project in JK Flesh.  Certainly the beats and almost dub step sound of Palesketcher accompanied by the atmosphere of Jesu and crushing guitars of Godflesh.  This album is brilliant!

Symmetry “Themes For An Imaginary Film” 3xLP (Italians Do It Better) …originally commissioned to be the soundtrack to the movie ‘Drive’ this synth drone/jam masterpiece was years in the making, brought to you by the genius’ behind Chromatics & Glass Candy.

Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats “Blood Lust” LP (Rise Above) …continually churning out some of the dirtiest rock in the land, Rise Above released this modern masterpiece of Stoner Rock Doom that reminds us why the blueprint for hard rock will always remain in the early 70’s bands that molded the sound. 
for fans of Sabbath, Pentagram, Blue Cheer to more obscure bands like Wicked Lady, Granicus and modern bands Graveyard & Witch.
