Major Malfunction

LP (Item 81068) World (UK), 1986 — Condition: Very Good+

Adrian Sherwood meets the Sugarhill (and On-U) house drummer for this album of dubby heavy beats. Doug Wimbish and Skip McDonald fill out the group on this set of heavy 80s beats with more than a touch of Sherwoods signature spacey effects and heavy synth work from Leblanc too. An obscure and great sidebar to the whole mid 80s crossover scene, and an album that presaged the whole "Headz" phenomenon that would hodl sway a decade later. Includes "Major Malfunction", "Heaven On Earth", "Object-Subject", "I'll Come Up With Something" and "You Drummers Listen Good".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
