A bundle of old NinjaTune stuff to dip into!
I've put the magazine ads in chronological order - so the earliest one at the top is from Straight No Chaser mag and it goes back to 1994.
Next up is one dating from 1995 and is for the 'Funkjazztical Tricknology" compilation.
Under that is an ad for DJ Food & The Herbaliser also dated 1995 - this one published in Birmingham Vibe magazine.
Into spring 1996 for the next ad which comes from SNC mag and features a variety of releases.
Then onto winter '96 with the next SNC ad which also contains a variety of product.
Another ad from SNC next, this time dated 1997 and featuring Coldcut, DJ Food & DJ Krush albums with a mention of a Herbaliser tour and other biz.
Two acts are featured in the next '97 SNC ad - Amon Tobin and Up, Bustle & Out.
The last ad from 1997 is the black & white one which comes from On magazine.
Jumping into 1999 with the next ad which appeared in Milesahead magazine and contains a variety of releases and mentions a showcase gig featuring the same acts in the ad.
The final ad in the sequence is a full page job for DJ Food's "Kaleidoscope" album and was published in SNC in 2000.
I have quite a lot of Ninja Tune material in my collection but due to the amount of ads I put up I thought I'd just display one to accompany the items, and so I have opted for the triple vinyl compilation "Ninja Cuts: Flexistentialism" released in March 1996.
To end with, I thought it was worthwhile displaying the Ninja Tune book too while I was at it. It hit the shelves in 2010 and celebrates 20 years in biz, so needless to say it contains their background history, act profiles and complete discography.
