I have now updated my wantlist with additional stuff i look for with Ghost, Metallica, Wasp, Rolling Stones, Watain, Ebba Grön, Hanoi Rocks to name a few, both records vinyls and tourposters, tourbook and memorbilia.
The most expensive The Hellacopters vinyl to be sold on eBay is…. this one! The Hellacopters VS Electric Frankenstein split 7″ on brown vinyl (yeah, it looks more brown in reality than on the picture due to my shitty camera). So what makes this brown version so special? First off it’s the most limited and one of the most hard to get The Hellacopters vinyls out there, released in only 100 copies and was sold exclusively through the label Frank Records members club, so it was never available anywhere else. The single was also released in following colours 500 copies black vinyl, 900 copies purple vinyl and 1000 copies cherry-red vinyl.
This version on brown vinyl have only been up for sale on eBay twice and at the most it went for as high as 408 USD, crazy i know! Myself i got this one when it was released so i payed next to nothing, as i did with all my The Hellacopters vinyls. The single have two The Hellacopters song, one original “Oh yeah alright” and one April Steven’s cover “I wan’t a lip” and i would like to say that this isn’t the best The Hellacopters release there is.
Another of the most expensively sold The Hellacopters vinyls on eBay is the Twist Action 2000 7″ on blue vinyl wich sold at it’s highest price for 405 USD.
The Hellacopters side: Oh yeah alright, I wan’t a lip
Electric Frankenstein side: Learn to burn, Born wild

First of all, welcome to my new blog. I am a recordcollector from Sweden. I mostly collect metal and punkrock records from 70’s and 80’s and my main interest is vinyl. Offcourse i also buy alot of new music, here i will write about records in my collection, concerts i go to and overall thoughts about music and so on.
This is the second time a write a blog, the first one i had only in swedish and was active for about a couple of months so let hope i find it more fulfilling this time. Reason i write in english this time is to reach out to more people and hopefully get in contact with more similar people out there to trade music with.
Please feel free to leave feedback and comments on the stuff i write about, it will be more fun to do this if i get some sort of respone.
