Greetings from Nortonville!


The merry month of MAY means MAYHEM at Nortonville, USA, with a brash rash of blastables and perusables (and so much more)! Get thee to the Norton website -- we’ve added a mess of tuff stuff—wax of all persuasions, plus hundreds of first time offered original and vintage rock n’ roll show and promotional posters from then to now and a mess more 1960's garage band original show posters rare vintage Mexican poster onesies (stirred up with assorted worldwide movie gunk)  that are sure el spraino your el braino- Git ‘em while you can—when they’re gone, they’re really GONE!  Also dig a limited souvenir crop (posters, novelties) from T Valentine’s NYC invasion and don’t be driving when you check out the Kicks Books link! Bad Seed icon HARLAN ELLISON has joined the starry knights at KICKS BOOKS with his first (and not last) collection for us, PULLING A TRAIN, which delivers his genre-bustin’ 1959 juvenile delinquent-PLUS  opus SEX GANG alongside a passel of arresting tales that haven’t seen print in fifty years! Limited signed box set and perfume available. Remember, slow means SORRY!

To fully utilize the Norton site, use the handy pull-down menu at the top of the home page—you’ll find all the Norton label fare, plus tons of recommended non- Norton fare including records, posters, sheet music, magazines, books, souvenir items, teeshirts, totes and patches, single copy DVD’s and more!

Harlan Ellison joins Andre Williams, Sun Ra, Nick Tosches and Kim Fowley at KICKS BOOKS, as he explodes from the launching pad with the first volume of mind-maulin’ short stories that deliver a one-two JD punch that is sure to rearrange your zipgun collection. The king of sci-fi future-bop finally reclaims the throne as the unadulterated boss cat of juvenile delinquent badass fiction with a mess of insane stories (including the elusive landmark JD/jailbait/bad seed socker SEX GANG) that have been unavailable for fifty years. Harlan has written a massive introduction that unravels the mystery behind his most elusive cranium crackers! Full blast at kicksbooks.com!  176 pages. $14.95
