I have that one! I used to find it very handy as filler for compilation tapes. Some great sounds on there.

Just bought the The Memory Kinda Lingers/Not in Front of the Audience double LP in my lunch hour. Needs a bit of gluing along the edges but otherwise the sleeve and vinyl are in excellent nick.

50p. 50p!

picked up some unusual vinyl at the boots this morning


this was my best find today, a 78rpm of The Kings Speech from 1935


it came in a Scottish record shop sleeve too


and is beautifully etched on the other side




an hour long BBC lecture by Sir Bernard Lovell released in 1967




a pretty rotten and not at all scary poetry 7"






pretty funky A side despite slightly dodgy sleeve art, no date on sleeve or label + some odd quotes too!







first record I have ever come across related to darts, signed by the great Eric Bristow too







Mental Health Charity flexi from 1962






sweet green vinyl flexi from the 60's






I guess a £100 was a lorra money in them days

eBay nabs over the past month.

TMBG - Flood — ebay £7 incl. p&p


REM - Reckoning — eBay £6.50 incl p&p


Faith No More - Introduce Yourself — eBay £6.20 incl. p&p


Liz Phair - Whip Smart — eBay £6.80 incl. p&p


James - One Man Clapping — eBay £9* incl. p&p


*This was listed as a Buy It Now for £14.00 + £4 p&p. I technically only paid £9 for it due to a paypal refund from a different auction that a seller had sent me a few months back, but had also told me to keep the item concerned.

First heard this on the Armando Iannucci Shows on Radio One, featured as one of the worst songs ever made!

I actually found 2 copies in the same box and so had to get them both,
it would have been cruel leaving one on it's own in the wild. It's available for trade?!

A side question. Are these Crosley turntables any good?

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Crosley-Briefcase-Three-Speed-Portable-Turntable/dp/B00990Z20U

Or should I get an Audio Technica AT-LP60?

I have a shitload of old vinyl and nothing to play it on.  I've never been an audiophile so I just want something portable around the £100 mark.

I'm pretty sure the Crossley thing will be crap and I don't think the Audio Technica will be much better. They're mostly plastic and will come with a non-adjustable cartridge/stylus that's about as basic as possible. Might be that you don't need much more than that, but I wouldn't go forking out £130 on one (which isn't portable anyway). Another few quid and you could have something that'll make nice noises.

Yeah, I should have done some more research. Apparently the Crosley's are garbage. The turntable you linked to looks horrible but the site could have what I'm looking for so ta.

Dooh, is that just him doing songs? Nobody seems to have any of his stand-up material, I don't know if I remember his act as I would probably have been too young when he was on TV but a lot of people seem to vaguely remember this guy Spook - Slither etc but the only thing available is that weird advert he did.

RIP Roy Jay.

"Roy Jay exposed himself on stage at a show and then stormed off stage in Jersey in the 80's because nobody laughed at his jokes, though he denied being drunk, and this spelt the end of his TV career. He was allegedly convicted for his behaviour."

"It seems long after his TV career, Roy toured in the US, supporting P.J. Proby in 2003 before ending up in Benidorm and opening a club. He continued his comedy exploits and died in an Alicante hospital, penniless, in December 2007. His funeral was paid for by a local businessman (a good friend of Roy) after his body laid unclaimed for 2 weeks following his death. The funeral was at Villajojosa Crematorium on January 22nd 2008."

:-(

Spook!

Oh Roy.. if he was convicted for getting his nob out at least they didn't have to make him change clothes. Was his act always along with music? And he can't seem to decide what his accent is meant to be. Proby was another notorious alcoholic, had to drink for his stage fright so I've heard, that tour can't have been fun, of course there was his remarkable comeback at the Landsdowne, Blackpool.

last weekends car boot finds


French EP by the girl band with a slightly unfortunate name but apparently
it was derived from the first letter of each girl's name (a bit like ABBA)





love this artwork (the record is rubbish btw) it was very popular in the early 70's
and it reminds me of old mags and the TV show Magpie, Noel plugs away inside the gate-fold







this sounds like great Library music but is in fact a Swiss jazz fusion band who released this LP in 1976







unusual and pretty scarce album released in the early 70's on Deroy & features
a track by 'Pop' Group which is short and more electric guitar wig-out than Pop






found in the same box was this old album by Ivor Cutler





also found together but in another box a nice pair of Marty Feldman albums





actual GG too much? luckily BA has that Glitter sound you need!




this was a nice find, with a cool label too I dimly remember a Hepworths
shop on the high street years ago, but guess they've all long gone now

You definitely have better car boot sales & charity shops near you. A really excellent Oxfam, with a whole second floor dedicated to vinyl, moved recently & lost most of their magnificent vinyl collection in the downsize. To be fair, they did spend a week before the move selling buy one record get one free. But, the move has meant a loss of the floor/space & the records now only occupy two shelf units.

Did manage to strike gold in a few secondhand stores, mind, handsomely adding to the '80s / '90s indie & Prince piles. Have also scored some beauts on eBay too, incl. a ropey but playable copy of Skin's Shame Humility Revenge for nowt.

Some lovely items, particularly the Feldmans, but this is a lovely album to find. Fucking hell.

A handful of things I've picked up recently & very cheaply at boot sales, secondhand & charity shops & ebay. In a couple of s/h shops I was lucky enough to arrive as each were starting to price up collections of '80s & '90s indie & a magnificent amount of Prince 12"s they'd just bought.

















Amazingly, I bought Sit Down, Come Home & YAHO back from the same shop I sold them to in the mid-late '90s. I found these in 2 plastic wall displays, tucked behind a stack of records & CDs that had been placed in front of & obscuring them over the years, where they had been put up for display/sale the day I sold them. I could confirm they were mine as they had my original purchase dates written in pencil in my handwriting inside the covers, which was something I did back in the '90s when I was cataloguing my then substantial (pre-sell off) collection. I got a mighty discount as a result.

Overall, about £50 for that lot. I did buy a load more on top of that, too, mostly for £1 ea.
