The Darkness - Easter Is Cancelled Test Pressing (Signed): £75.00 £60.00 (opens in new tab)
That rare wax we mentioned? How about a signed Darkness test press, limited to just 50? Yeah, that's pretty good we reckon. And if you're not sure if the album is any cop, we gave it an 8/10 and called it "a winning tightrope between the sublime and ridiculous".

Nazareth: Love Hurts/My White Bicycle 7" Test Pressing Was £30, Now £15 (opens in new tab)
Only 20 of these bad boys were produced when Nazareth rereleased their 1975 cover of the Everly Brothers classic last year. And one of them can literally be yours.

Tom Morello Nazi Lives T-Shirt Was £20.00 Now £5.00 (opens in new tab)
Smashing Nazis has never been cheaper than it is on Cyber Monday.

Dan Reed On Your Side Necklace Was £35.00 Now £17.50 (opens in new tab)
This jewellery by Helene Wahlstrom is based on lyrics by Dan Reed. "I've seen the monsters eyes under my bed," sang Dan in the song of the same name. "I guess he's coming for my head." To be fair, he's probably coming for your necklace.

SOLD OUT Chrissie Hynde & The Valve Bone Woe Ensemble
Valve Bone Woe Test Pressing (Signed & Numbered)
Double LP
Was £100.00 Now £85.00
(opens in new tab)
The album features 14 tracks written by artists Brian Wilson, Frank Sinatra, Hoagy Carmichael, Charlie Mingus, John Coltrane, Nick Drake, Ray Davies and Rodgers and Hammerstein. It's only £15 off, but for a signed double album test pressing from a genuine legend, we're calling it a snip.

SOLD OUT Dio - The Last In Line Live Picture Disc: £25.99 £18.19 (opens in new tab)
How do you make a record even more metal? You make it a picture disc and stick Ronnie James Dio's devil horns on it, that's how. This die-cut picture disc is limited to 5000 and widely out of stock online.

Foreigner - Double Vision: Then And Now: £22.99 £11.49
(opens in new tab)This limited edition double-LP Gatefold and Blu-ray offering contains heavyweight vinyl, more Foreigner hits than you can shake a stick at, and a chance to go behind the scenes as original band members join Mick Jones and Foreigner’s current lineup for the very first time in the band’s 40-year history, with both incarnations of the band sharing the same stage for the first time. Yikes!

The Fall - Medicine For The Masses - The Rough Trade Singles Boxset: £59.99 £41.99 (opens in new tab)
Bringing together the four classic 7" singles The Fall released on Rough Trade in the early 80s, this extremely attractive box set includes coloured vinyl re-mastered discs plus a set of four button badges, each featuring an element from the single sleeves. Nice.

A Perfect Circle - Eat The Elephant Deluxe Boxset: £90.00 £50.00 (opens in new tab)
This ever-so-swanky box set comes with a custom foil-printed Octoheart Box with Digipak CD, 180 gram double gatefold black vinyl with download card, a 96k hi-res digital download, a card deck and a... prism. Can't say fairer than that.

Iggy Pop - Post Pop Depression: Live At The Royal Albert Hall Triple Heavyweight LP: £72.00 £50.40 (opens in new tab)
A hefty triple-LP set of what Townsend confidently call the "best gig ever". Who are we to argue?

Mastodon - Emperor Of Sand Picture Disc: £34.99 £24.49 (opens in new tab)
Picture discs. They just look cool, don't they? Well, this one you can admire in all its glory all of the time, as it's a double sided picture disc in a clear vinyl sleeve.

Saxon - Thunderbolt (The Singles) Boxset: £55.99 £39.19 (opens in new tab)
Saxon released this singles box set to celebrate Record Store Day this year, but now your patience is rewarded and you can get it at a snip of the price. Includes five black 7" singles.

Babymetal - Metal Resistance Double LP: £20.00 £10.00
(opens in new tab)We called Metal Resistance "a ludicrous but brilliantly executed delight" when we reviewed it in 2016, which should tell you all you need to know about this record – especially now it's going for half price.

Echo & The Bunnymen: The Stars, The Oceans & The Moon (Signed): was £25.00, now £15.00 (opens in new tab)
This signed double album on heavyweight vinyl sees the Bunnymen reinventing some of their classic songs, with new arrangements, strings, and more. It doesn't always work but Mac's voice is still a thing of wonder and The Stars is an album all fans will want for their collection – especially signed and at this price.

Dan McCafferty - Last Testament double vinyl: was £18.99, now £9.49 (opens in new tab)
For decades the voice of legendary Scottish rockers Nazareth, Dan McCafferty had to retire from that band's punishing tour schedule. But that doesn't mean he's going gently into that good night. This year's Last Testament album saw him with a mix of musical styles and flavours. At 50% off, it's a worthy addition to every Nazareth fan's collection.

Band of Skulls - Baby Darling Doll Face Honey 10 Year Anniversary boxset: was £100, now £80 (opens in new tab)
Southampton’s Band Of Skulls, purveyors of chiselled blues epics and granite-guitar funk-outs, made quite an impact when they came out with Baby Darling Doll Face Honey in 2009. 10 years on, that debut album has been given the super deluxe treatment, with a 12"-sized padded casebound book with 60 pages, 12" milky-clear coloured vinyl, bonus 10" transparent red coloured vinyl of B-Sides and Bonus Tracks, plus 4CDs, including live shows, and a USB with nearly an hour of video content including promotional music videos, live videos, documentaries and making-of features. £20 off.

Tiger Army - V splatter vinyl: was £15, now £3.99 (opens in new tab)
The fifth album from the much loved US psychobillies on splatter vinyl at the ridiculous price of £3.99. Worth it for the artwork alone, V is an entertaining collection of goth'n'roll.
