26th of May 2010 Update (Closed Memorial Day)

A quick note before the update.  Josh and I (Rick) will be away in Baltimore (at Maryland Death Fest) getting our yearly fill of metal.  Sean will be in the shop Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  He will not be able to buy anything so please hold off on any stuff you want to sell to us until we are back in (Tuesday).  Monday, Memorial Day, we will be closed.  Have a great weekend - all state parks are free!

Sell Us Your Media

Redscroll Records is always buying used vinyl, CDs, DVDs, and books of interest! We pay cash, but we'll give you a bit more in store credit.

Now that we've rearranged the store and opened up a whole new room for just used records we have a wealth of space. We've all got stuff on our shelves that we bought checked out once, and will never pick up again. I'm talking about things that you have no sentimental attachment to. Maybe you have a family member who is just holding onto things because they don't want to spend the time to get rid of them - offer your time to come to our store with that uncle's 70s rock collection, mom's old Aleister Crowley books, your cousin's ska CDs, ... Spring is traditionally the time for cleaning so why not go through your collection and weed out anything you haven't listened to in a couple years?  Why not?  I will tell you why you should. 

It is beneficial for us, but it is also beneficial for you. Tag Sales, Craigslist, Ebay, ... all those things take up a lot of your time.  Time is money, right?  We will pay you on the spot. Spin yarn into gold. One man's trash is another man's treasure (gender neutral usage). 


When you go to a record store with a great used section it is because of a few factors.  Perhaps, the purveyors of said store found a magic beanstalk which they climbed and defeated a giant who had a great collection of discs (that were probably tiny to him).  More likely is that they've built a niche within the community.  They've sold and bought records to people with respectable tastes.  We have a respect for the people that come into our store and that is why we are writing this now.  Sell us your used media so that another may easily find it.  We all win!

Redmodeled Records

Remodeling is still in progress.

On April 12, 2007 we set up shop.  It's a little over three years later and we have moved things around more than once per year.  We used to have our office in what was (until last week) the used record room.  The office moved to the back storage area then.  Now, the office has moved to our basement.  The back room is now the used record room.  The old used record room now has sub-categories of records.  New and used CDs have new shelving.  Books and magazines are on end-cap displays.  The listening station is in the corner under the television.  7"s/45s are under the new records in the main room.  There's more to explain.  It all gets real muddled if you're trying to grasp it while reading, however.

Let me explain in pictures, both moving and static!

Before getting going with anything major in the store we had to move our big megaton 1970s (former Pratt & Whitney) steel desk downstairs.  The easiest way to move that beast is to take it apart and reassemble it in the new location.  Oh wait, if you're going down stairs the easiest way is to just take off the legs and shove it onto a pile of broken down cardboard.  Yea!


Days two and three saw us gathering some help from our friends.  We took down all the old shelving (downstairs to be used for back-stock).  So, thanks to my folks, my brother Joe, and our friends Mike, Brian, Ryan, Rob and Melissa.  While I'm thanking people - thanks to ourselves: Rick, Josh, Sean and Bean (the dog).



Days six and seven saw lots of arranging.  No big movements were left at this point.  

 DAY EIGHT (If you're seeing this right away - sorry, for some reason this video is taking forever to process):

Come on by and see it for yourself.  Let us know what you think in person.

Cinco De Metal

Cinco De Metal (5-5-10)
Occasionally we help out some friends by perpetuating their pursuits. On this coming Wednesday (Cinco de Mayo - see the clever word play in the title? Bingo.) we are helping out with a show in the area. It's very close - so close that our back lot serves as the venue's parking area.

Here's your rundown:

Black Pyramid are a band out of Northampton with a description that goes, "Black Pyramid play doom with the rumbling down-tuned tones of stoner metal gods like Sleep, Electric Wizard, and High On Fire, but with the epic arrangements of old school metal and doom acts such as Black Sabbath, Pentagram, and The Obsessed. Add to the sonic brew perfectly executed forays into vintage psych and progressive rock, along with the apocalyptic lyrical ravings about war, the occult, and general alienation, and you've got an accurate picture of what the band is all about. Prepare to be crushed by the weight of the Black Pyramid..."

Let the Night Roar feature a former member of Leviathan and Malevolent Creation. I'm only saying that because it seems to be said over and over wherever I look. This band stands on its own merits. Here's some press: These guys combine the doom parts of High On Fire and Sleep with the dirty sound of Celtic Frost and Venom. Very important to bands of this sound. I believe that Let The Night Roar will manage to put their name next to all the other important bands of the sound. ----HARM Magazine

And finally and most eagerly anticipated are our friends in Nightbitch which features Phil of Hour of 13 and Ryan from Ipsissimus (among other righteous brethren). "Riffs and sleaze." Black Sabbath. The occult. Alucarda. Haxan. Asphyxiation. Walpurgisnacht. First show.

Gristleism - Standard/Modified

Gristleism - Standard / Modified

Gristleism. We sell this item. It's rather cool. It is so neat that I have decided to do a write up on it here. Basically, Throbbing Gristle and FM3 made a loop device together.
The one hitch with it is that there is no jack/output to plug into. If you don't need that and you just want to listen and bliss out then the standard old Gristleism box will do. ($24.50 for the standard box - as noted by the price tag in the picture.)   If you want to dissect it yourself that is half the fun for some. (Yes, this device has its own site.) even has a diagram for adding your own jack.  As a word of advice - not all of these look the same inside though they all include the same components.

We (Redscroll) recently garnered the help of our friend Donovan (Roman Wolfe) to modify a few of these to sell in the shop with a jack/output. 

Look for these at the front desk / glass case.  $34 (this covers the extra parts and labor involved while not getting too outlandish - at least we think that).   If you're seeing this from a great distance we will ship them, sure.  Contact us for shipping quotes.

Finally, I submit this (which is a video nabbed from this review that my friend David Abravenel did on the Gristleism; we also sell the Buddha Machine and the Buddha Machine II):
