Welcome To The Archive

The In Deep Music Archive is an eclectic collection of music in many forms. An historical and contemporary library of all available physical formats - Vinyl, CD, Cassette, Reel to Reel tape, 8 Track, 78RPM, VHS, DVD, Laser discs, reference books, encyclopedias, catalogues, biographies and magazines. The archive's digital presence is manifested on the In Deep Music Archive website with regular posts about both popular and more obscure artists included in the collection. Collected by Marty Willson-Piper over the past 50 years, the archive has grown into this wonderful collection through a life of scouring the record stores around the world, but also through generous donations from friends, fans and record labels alike. Any funding goes directly towards either running costs or increasing the content. Our ambition for the archive is to create a musical culture centre with a small venue, that will also be used for music lessons and workshops and as a meeting place for music lovers in a unique atmosphere. Access to the archive will be available to the public in some form yet to be determined.

On […]

Life & Death

30/10/17 – The Godfathers – Birth, School, Work, Death – 1988

It’s just one of those songs where everything came together at once – the beat, the words, the guitar parts, the guitar sounds, the bass, the sing speak delivery, the attitude, the look. It was a hit – except only America seemed to notice, the song reaching No.38 in the mainstream chart. It was another case […]

Life & Death

18/10/17 – The Velvet Underground And Nico – The Black Angel’s Death Song – 1967

Although Lou Reed declared that the lyrics to The Black Angel’s Death Song were without meaning and were just about the sound of the words, it’s the closest that Lou Reed ever got to Bob Dylan with colourful language. Written in 1966 and released in 1967 – at this point Dylan was on his eighth […]
