Club - Mobile DJ, Broadcaster and professional Discographer (book on UK labels is 90% finished now)

Only two types of music: Good OR Bad

The download-ipod culture has destroyed the record industry, any significence of The Charts.

It is now completely destroying professional DJ-ing, where a DJ was rated on his selectivity, exclusiveness and exclusive unavailable up-front DJ only product and mixes, the absolute tools of our trade.

Half the fun was going shopping, sourcing , selecting, contacting Record Companies for new and up-coming 12" singles.
Almost impossible now, the vinyl pressed is so limited.

ALL recordings made past present and future can be obtained for free on the internet somewhere, smug moaning Record Companies putting their wares on
You-Tube etc etc for all to see hear and sadly copy and poach.

Booth bugging is now rife and standard practice by females of the species, who not only expect you to have everything ever recorded, even obscure and remote random crass tracks, all naturally on a plugged-in lap top in vile compressed sonics and for these demanded downloads to be played immediately, a dictated to playlist, and all this whilst they are tapping you on the shoulder as you are trying to live mix two 12s on the decks. Every DJ should be kitted out with a taizar as standard kit.

Or your playing location in an inacessable by Joe (siphene) public! Have a great DJ T shirts says: F*** Off I'm Mixing For My Living!

IMPORTANT NOTE (for those few it may concern)
1. I usually order and buy specifics (not run of the mill which I will most times usually already own) ie stereo mixes, album versions (full length mixes) picture sleeves pressing types, etc etc etc.

2. If I order a specific I expect to get that specific as listed under/as and has been confirmed as being. End of.

3. I do not suffer fools gladly.

4. My selling philosophy is simple.....If you don't know what you are selling.......then don't! (ie list and try to sell it).
