My Vinyl Offering – Peter Scartabello

Peter Scartabello

In My Vinyl Offering, we get up close and personal with our favorite musicians and friends to find out the most cherished parts of their record collection. This time around we feature the collection of musician (Sky Shadow Obelisk)/composer (Bunnyman, The Bunnyman Massacre, Bunnyman Vengeance, et al.) and label owner (Yuggoth Records) Peter Scartabello.

The first record I ever bought with my own money was…
“Kiss – Destroyer. I’m not a huge Kiss fan now, but when I was eight this was the shit!”

The record that made me want to make music was…
“Iron Maiden – Piece of Mind. Love everything about this album! From the first drum fill of ‘Where Eagles Dare’ to the last haunting chords of ‘To Tame a Land’. Quite simply, Steve Harris is my spirit animal!”

The record I’ve played more than any other is…
“King Crimson – Red. I was late to the party, didn’t get into Crimson until college, but this album meant the world to me and sent me off into a whole new direction musically, but I have to say that this is probably tied with Mahavishnu Orchestra’s ‘Birds of Fire’.”

The record that always make me feel good is…
“Frank Zappa – Overnight Sensation. Something about the songs ‘Montana’ and ‘Camarillo Brillo’ that just make me smile no matter what. Really miss Frank!”

The record I turn to when I’m feeling down is…
“That’s a good question, I usually watch TV when I’m feeling down because music is too strong and overpowering for me when I’m depressed. But I guess if I’m just having an off day some Mercyful Fate, Maiden or Mahler’s 6th Symphony w/Karajan conducting.”

The record with my favorite cover art is…
“Iron Maiden – Powerslave”

The strangest LP I own is…
“The W.A.S.P. Blind in Texas picture disc!! Haha.”

I'm an old, sarcastic, black coffee drinking curmudgeon who is an avid vinyl listener/collector. Oh yeah, I created Inhale the Heavy.
