Local Music

Gift guide: Hunting for rare local vinyl

Just because they’re out of print doesn’t mean you can’t find these Vegas-bred classics. Try eBay, Discogs, MusicStack and Gemm, and if all else fails, Google the title and start tracking down leads. It’s out there somewhere!

    • Subterfuge

      Who’s the Fool 12” (1984).

      M.I.A. left town before releasing an album, so this (or Samsons Army’s 1988 LP Where’s Dan?) is the holy grail of first-wave Vegas punk.

    • Vermin From Venus

      Sex on Planet X 12” (1989).

      Before Dirk Vermin was a TV star or tattoo artist, he released this debut full-length.

    • Faded Grey

      A Quiet Time of Desperation 12” (2001).

      You’ve heard the name, now hear the record. Hardcore with real heart.

    • Curl Up and Die

      Unfortunately We’re Not Robots 12” (2002).

      Mathcore has rarely been this memorable, or this fun (see: the 8-minute “You’d Be Cuter If I Shot You in the Face”).

    • Jacob Smigel

      Lovers & Drunkards 7” (2005).

      The folkster genius was at the top of his game when he recorded this three-track beauty for Not Not Fun records.
