Buying TVPs records?
Posted: Wed Jan 03, 2007 2:17 am
Does anybody know any good online shops for buying TVPs records (on vinyl)? Browsing eBay and the labels' own sites has been useful to a point, but so far the only records I've been able to get my hands on are And Don't The Kids Just Love It, Chocolat-Art (both bizarrely found in a local record shop), The Painted Word (from Amazon), and My Dark Places (Domino - it's easy to find).
There have been a few instances of me ordering an album only to be told that there are no more copies of the record available. On top of that, a friend of mine got Mummy Your Not Watching Me for xmas, and I'm extremely jealous. It's quite hard to obtain (from what I can tell, anyway).
Could anyone possibly point me in the direction of retailers who still sell the TVPs' albums on vinyl?

My fav place is www.gemm.com
They have everything!
What in particular are you looking for? I might be able to help.

That gemm site is fantastic. Just ordered a copy of Privilege.
I'm really just looking for any of the studio albums, to be honest. I have them all on my computer, but I'd love to have the actual records (for proper listening, through giant headphones, in my bedroom, with a cup of tea ).

Hi Neil. Have you tried here?

Yes, another great resource. Between that and gemm.com, you should be able to find whatever is needed!

Ooh, excellent! And the TVPs are the "featured artists", apparently. Thank you very much.

Generally the best shop for anything like this is minuszerorecords
, who generally have huge stacks of assorted TVPs, Robyn Hitchcock, Daniel Johnston et al stacked up in the back room. The website's a bit lame, and if you're planning to visit the shop they open really weird hours so check first if you're travelling any distance.
