The rock music fanzine Who Put Up The Bump was created by the music historian Greg Shaw and his wife Suzy. The title of the magazine was inspired by Barry Mann's doo-wop hit from 1961. The first edition was published in 1970 and stood out for its unique writing style that differed greatly from the mainstream music magazines at the time. Later the title was shortened to Bomp! The last edition came out in 1979 and Greg transformed his passion into the music label Bomp! Records. Several copies of the magazine can be found here in this collection.
The first issue of record collector was published in 1980. The magazine was founded by the editor Sean O'Mahony, publisher of the Beatle Book, who worked under the name Johnny Dean. The magazine established a unique identity by publishing articles from fans and collectors. Checkout our collection of 80s copies here!

This experience later spurred her to later become an important part of the civil rights movement. To make ends meet, she started playing piano in a club in Atlantic City and was told to sing if she wanted to increase her in come.

Keith Haring began to use the public space in New York City as his canvas in the late 1970s and soon gained international success as an artist for his distinct illustration technique. In 1986 Keith was invited to Berlin by the director of the Check Point Charlie Museum to paint a mural on a section of the border wall. Overnight a large part of Keith’s work had been painted grey, out of protest. Three years later the entire wall came down.
To celebrate Keith’s colourful work we’ve put together a collection of records that feature his art. Our highlight: "Life Is Something Special" by the N.Y.C Peech Boys designed and signed by the amazing Keith Haring himself!
Magnum Photos is an international photography cooperative that was founded in Paris in 1947 by the photographers Robert Capa, David "Chim" Seymour, Henri Cartier-Bresson, George Rodger, William Vandivert, Rita Vandivert and Maria Eisner.

Hip Hop as a genre of music is instantly recognizable. Samples from soul and funk records, vinyl scratching and a special form of poetry known as rapping, are some of its key elements. This sound originated in the Bronx in the late 1970s and has had a worldwide influence. It is often said that the golden age of hip hop was in the nineties. Whatever decade you prefer - we have a wide variety of American and German hip-hop in this collection.
THE medium of the 80's is back and we have increased our stock with classics, box sets and rare editions - largely still sealed. About time to dust off the old tape deck and go on a time travel.
