Strange film on new records.

I have three records in my collection that were purchased new, but have a strange sticky film on them that I cannot seem to be able to clean off. This film appears like it is melted onto the surface. I’ve tried alcohol solution, tergitol, scrubbing, ultrasonic. Each cleaning seems to reduce this film, but it still remains. When I have tried to play them, they gum up the stylus. Does anyone maybe know what this film is, and more importantly, how to clean it off?

Some lp's are subject to demonic possession...the slime is a sign of such.

'It' goes for the ears...listen not, therefore.

Removal of possession is sometimes possible with an industrial Q-tip chucked into a cordless drill....

Ask kenjit....he knows the drill....;)
