Austin Record Fair October 2013

As luck would have it, I had to be in Houston at the same time as the Austin record fair, so a 40 minute flight later, I got my second dose of Austin. This time it was only a fleeting visit, but I was very pleased with some of the finds, including this Fuzz Monster Bonehead classic by The Purple Sun.

The Purple Sun- Doomsday

Another nice purchase was this 1971 Stone Axe poster 

Some more nice stuff...

Doug Hanners is as ever the perfect gentleman and host and although Austin caters mainly for the 50s and Soul/R &B crowd, there is enough (well tons) of the “other stuff to please a wider demographic. Tomorrow a 6am flight and if all goes well I will be reporting back from another location, hopefully with further finds

So what's the Ardent 45? I can make out Big Star but not the song.

Hi It's Oh My Soul long and radio edit. I have missed my flight to New York, so no Brooklyn record fair for me today!

Thanks for sharing this nice haul! If you don't mind me asking, how much did the Moving Sidewalks 7" set you back?

Not much. I think around the $30 mark

Went to the Austin fair once. Not much punk for me, but I did buy a second copy of the O'Rex single. Lots of fun though: bumped into Long Gone John and The White Stripes in a junk store, saw The Strokes play in a pub, and hung out with a famous Brit TV celeb who was premier-league entertainment thoughout (drunken-ness, class A substances, hookers). I've not laughed quite so much since. Thanks, Russ!
