Profile

I have been collecting records since 1979. First records bought were Gene Chandler "Get Down" and Jean Michel Jarre "Equinoxe" but don't let that put you off! I have thousands of albums and singles, mainly of an eclectic nature - XTC, Dubstep, Durutti Column, Factory, 4AD, Crepuscule, Talk Talk and Reggae - the list goes on really.

I enjoy gigs and a decent pot of beer. See you there!!
