All that glitters must be… Gold Shop

Alongside the growing catalogue of 80’s re-releases by Deadly Dragon and the small but great Digikiller (both of which got a mention recently). There is a third New York outfit that are currently putting out late 80’s era vinyl and are slowly but surely building an impressive catalogue of releases. Gold Shop started off early last year with some 7″ from Phillip Smart and most recently have put out some fine singles on the Witty label.

Of all the labels mentioned above, Gold Shop are the ones with the strongest New York identity, all of their releases to date have some kind of New York link and for the most part were produced there.

  • MM064 Echo Minott – Follow Me/Version
  • MM201 Nicodemus – Earth And Moon/Version
  • MM202 Al Campbell – Leave The Herbsman Business/Version
  • MM203 Tony Tuff – Cool it/Version

All of these are on 7″ vinyl and are limited editions (if you can call a thousand presses limited in this day and age). It would be worth adding that the Gold Shop website has some really nice content and isn’t all about publicising their own releases.
