Hi, and welcome to the forum!

There is a post, in 2011, by Blastocyst mentioning a Thorn 425 and that was from Nelson, New Zealand!

Coincidence, or is it possible that's where it came from?

Good luck with the record hunting. Discogs is my final resort for any record l really want, but your postage costs may be greater than here.
Regards, Ken.

Real Groovy Records are in New Zealand, I have bought many an LP from them.
Only mob that actually know what "condition" means!!
If they say fair, its fair ( and cheap) if they say VGC I buy it.
Never had a bad one yet

Welcome to the forum, if the charity shops in New Zealand are similar to the UK then you will be spoiled for choice!
