Dead stock

Andrew Dubber (on Twitter) posted this question: "Ever owned a now-defunct record label? What did you do with the old, unsold & unwanted stock? I have hundreds of discs to dispose of..."

Andrew is back in town briefly (the former Aucklander is a radio lecturer at a UK university these days), and has uncovered hundreds of CDs from a jazz label he ran here in the late 90s.

Callum August at Dirty Records responded to Andrew: "label still going but some times you need to cut your losses." And Callum posted the grim picture above of dumping Dirty Records vinyl at the tip. That photo makes me sad.

obviously no conscience going on... no effort to recycle, donate to op shops, give to art school to make scuptures with. dirty - really dirty
