DISTRO UPDATE: Vendetta Records [vinyl]

June 20, 2021
We received a selection of vinyl from Vendetta Records about 6 weeks ago but dragged our feet a bit in making them available. 

As we only have 2x of each record, it felt a bit cumbersome to add all of these to the official webshop, but I added them to our Discogs page last night. 

This is no small update, as 26 titles new and old have been added. Have a look below for the list of titles and place your order on our Discogs if interested.

Some of the sleeves have slight corner bends from the shipp...
