Hi, I'm a DJ and science teacher from Brighton England, now living in Limassol (Lemesos) Cyprus. I started collecting records before I even went to school after being given one of those old "record players in a box", along with a handful of 7"s and a couple of LPs aged just 2 (in 1970). The first single I bought with my own money was "I Taut I Taw A Puddy Tat" by Tweety Pie and the first LP was "Songs From The Jungle book". I still have both.

Up until 2009, I DJ'd mainly private parties but DJ'd clubs from 1990 through to 2005 (with a bit of a gap in the early Noughties). I've DJ'd a huge array of styles in clubs from student 70s party nights right through to punk, metal, goth, indie, happy house, hip-hop, reggae, hell, I even DJ'd a lesbian club for a year. Partly as a result my collection is nothing if not varied.

Started adding my collection 25th April 2008. Feel free to browse it, I think it's finally complete..

UPDATE: My collection arrived in Cyprus today (1st June 2016). Much of it will be for sale, and I will be setting up my Marketplace with P&P conditions etc later in the year. However, as I intend to play everything to grade it properly before selling, it will take a long time to get everything on and I have no idea what will go on first. Feel free to have a look through my collection and inbox me if anything is of particular interest and I will prioritize it.
Note, the Tweety Pie single does feature my own colouring in (as seen here: Tweety Pie* / Bugs Bunny - I Taut I Taw A Puddy Tat / I'm Glad That I'm Bugs Bunny) and is, therefore, a highly sought after item!
UPDATE2: Selling was the original plan, but now I have it back I don't want to get rid of it. This may change soon, watch this space...

I no longer have a wantlist! Thanks to _kerry for pointing me at a copy of the only record in there!

Vinyl still rules (even though I'm too bone idle to actually carry it these days!)

Note: I do not sell or trade mp3s or any other digital formats.

Music, amazing, I love this band. Good honest punk rock.
But the vinyl iteslf, this black/orange splatter version is a thing of beauty!

This seemed like a good idea when it was new. Not so much today, when I took it off the shelf and noticed the sleeve had burst, making this disc unplayable and ruining the sleeves of the records either side of it on the shelf...

You'll notice I put the word official in quote marks. As far as I know there hasn't been a version authorised by band and/or label, just a large scale release, widely available in shops that claimed to be official.

This would appear to be a UK only release. It isn't listed on any BTO discographies I can find. Down To The Line was released as a non-album single in N. America and Australasia.

There are only a handful of genuine copies out there, however, it is a very famous rare record and there are a LOT of fakes. There was even an "official" reproduction copy released. Genuine ones have a serrated ridge around the label and a lot of the ... See full review

Which is all a shame, because back in the late 80s their Indie Top 20 releases were effectively the "Now That's What I Call Music" of the Indie scene. Top albums giving you the best tracks of the day that were hard to find elsewhere. You are all right ... See full review

Whist I agree this doesn't sound like Sabbath (indeed it sounds more like Purple than Sabbath) I still think it's a good album. Zero The Hero does stand out, but so do Digital Bitch and Trashed. The last three tracks are weak though.

Magic Records were really Stiff Records in disguise. This was released partly as a joke and partly as a publicity stunt. The record is blank on both sides but is very cleverly pressed to look like there is a recording on it. There are numerous different ... See full review
