This should be a guide for those people who are collecting or plan to
start collecting Quarashi items. I will try to tell you where to look and what is out there.
To start collecting the first thing you need to know are what items
that are out there. You need to gather information about what records
etc. that exists. I would suggest writing down a list of those items
that you are interested in before you start searching. I would also
suggest that you grade the items and think about which items you
want the most. To get an idea of what is out there check out the
discography where I have listed all releases
that I know about.
Remember that often things could cost more then they really are worth. Sometimes you see
things on e-bay for $20 and then the next week you see it for $5. This is when you use that knowledge
you gotten through gathering information and also use your common sense. To pay $20 for a US printed copy of Jinx is
for example way expensive. To pay $20 for a original copy of the first album is perhaps another matter.
Quarashi is a pretty new band and if you're not living in
Iceland it could be hard getting the first releases that only were
sold in Iceland. Therefore you can't really find any rarities in
different record stores except perhaps on Iceland. So collectors
will have to turn to something else and this is when Internet is
really useful. Here you have many on-line record stores where you
could find releases from different countries like Japan and Australia.
But the best place to find rare Quarashi items would be e-bay.
It could take a while to get used to e-bay but when you have done
that you could find many items that you can't find anywhere else.
But here is really important that you think about the price and
really read through the whole item description so that you really
get what you want. Also read carefully about the payment instructions
and the shipping & handling costs.
