LP's LPs record store is in moderate-swing... in other words, not stopping here! As many saw, the Electra-Furs sign was a relic of the past and it was a hard decision to take it down. I decided to do that and hang it indoors. I wasn't ready for what I found behind it though... Second Hand Rose Boutique. An old sign belonging to the clothing shop that existed here before Electra-Furs. More research is needed but it is a proven fact that this sign did not come from the dreadful Hairspray remake with john Travolta. So, this will do for now, because it is beautiful.
Many people still have a hard time finding this place, my old address always pops up. So here is something to help. RECORD STORE TORONTO, LP's LPs 2227 DUNDAS W. At Dundas & Roncesvalles. Best selection of vintage electronic, cosmic and synth LPs, hard to find psych and rarities. Post Punk lives here.

Sure a lot of their stuff sounds terrible, but this band has stayed true to form since 1980. Their hit songs are countless... Walk the Line, Maximum Security, Here Cum Germs, Silver Machine, Ignore the Machine, Impossible Mission.... A truly unique band. One of the many girl-boy bands that rocked for decades together. I am happy to have this stuff in here all at once.
