    has anyone seen a copy of a japanese book called "Surburbia Suite : Future Antiques"? is it any good? worth getting?

    as far as i can tell it's a design book but it just features pictures of rare funky record sleeves (if my understanding of it is correct which is why i'm asking before i buy).

    and yes, i do like looking at pictures of records. can't see anything wrong with that, personally.

    My Dad used to have a book called The Rock Album on the coffee table back when I was a kid and I&#39;m sure it did me irreperable vinyl fetish damage.

    I now have a few more similar collections - punk, reggae and easy themed ones. Since I&#39;m in london next week I&#39;ll check out helter skelter.

    Col, is Helter Skelter actually closing down? I thought they were just having a prolonged sale...

    I thought it was thriving, what with the book publishing stuff they&#39;ve been doing.

    According to the talk on the Cherry Smash &amp; Shindig forums it is - intimating that the success of the mail order &amp; publishing side of things may be main reason

    Apparently the shop looks like a bric-a-brac sale at the moment - dug out all kinds of dusty cut&#39;n&#39;paste fanzines etc...

    Taking offers on stuff too

    I&#39;m down in Londinium this weekened so I&#39;ll see for myself
