Goner Message Board / ???? / Record Label mailorder service
Posted: Feb 27, 2010 12:07 am
 
I've been buying pretty much all of my vinyl from Goner. I don't mean to come off as an ass kisser, but their shipping is superfast and the e-mail updates are cool, package tracking and all of that. I wanted something that Goner didn't carry and ordered it from another label. It wasn't bad but it took awhile. I mean it was kind of obvious that whoever had my order let it sit there for at least a week before he even thought about sending it. I was just wondering if you guys could mention some labels that do a good job with mailorder.

What kind of music are you looking for?

All forms of garage and punk rock. I want to try out some of the stuff in the New Releases & Stuff For Sale section. If you gave me some labels that have great mailorder I'm sure I could myspace some bands and find something I'd like.

I'm just an impatient bastard. I don't want to wait three or four weeks for my records.

Post your email and I'll send you a list of labels / distros to check out. Goner tends to be a first choice due to the quick turn around and the well packaged orders / quality mailers. So, I won't give any free advertising to other labels and distros on their site.

goner b.b. rules:

I'm like thopkins, Goner is always my first choice. I'll hear about a band on this board and check out their myspace or whatever and then go to Goner. I just need a piece of shit retailer in case Goner doesn't have it. I hate those others fuckers. I realize that I'll just be throwing my money at retards hoping they send me a record back. Seriously, the Goner service it to good to not go therer first everytime.

You know what I want right now! A FUCKING ARMITAGE SHANKS RECORD! I found a place in London but's it's all in pounds, I don't know what the shipping is or which option to pick. It's a hassle chasing this shit down.

dude, remember before the internet you sent a money order off to some dodgy address somewhere and hoped you got something back a month or so later......

i would be willing to bet that goner is working on getting some ARMITAGE SHANKS in

I used to do that with SST and Alternative Tentacles. If you got on SST's mailing list they would send you a sampler cassette with a bunch of stuff on it. I remember St. Vitus, Minutemen, Husker Du and all that shit would be on it. When that tape arrived it was happy day to young Cole.

Man, I was a MS hayseed too. I remember working for my uncle hauling hay and listening to that tape all summer on a walkman while driving a tractor.

Is Underground Medicine in CT still around? That's where I bought most of the '90s HEAD records.
