No Profit in Pain

My Record Shop Day Purchases #3

My Record Shop Day Purchases #1
I never made it as far as a Record Shop (as opposed to Record Store) yesterday. The reasons? I didn't fancy getting up at the crack of dawn on a day of work. Also there weren't any really any releases that I was particularly desperate to acquire although I ...
