A little personal history:
I have been a collector of vinyl/quality music since my school days of the late Seventies - my first single was by X-Ray Spex 'The Day the World Turned Dayglo' in lovely orange vinyl. My first LP was by XTC 'Go 2'. They certainly turned my world upside down and I've been hooked on music ever since.

In the late 80s, I got into the rave/dance scene, collecting everything from Electro, Hip Hop, US/UK House, Acid and some of the earlyTechno and going to raves, mostly illegal, around the south coast before they became big corporate affairs. Waiting at a pub or motorway car park for the call for where rave was was all part of the experience - though more often than not you'd whizz off and follow other cars into the countryside and end up in an abandoned field or empty waste ground and find out later we'd been used as a diversion tactic for the police - happy days :)

My favourite DJs I've had the fortune to seeing live being: Marshall Jefferson, Eddie-evil-Richards, Colin Favour, DJ Cash Money, A Guy Called Gerald, Cut Chemist, several of the DJ Food collective, Cutmaster Swift, Kenny ken and DJ Hype for his blistering crossfading and scratching tricks.

Couldn't get into Hardcore, though I'll admit there were some fine examples of this form made and then just as dance music was wandering up its own arse, Jungle came along which felt a bit like the excitement/explosion of punk from the late 70s and Acid in 1988/89

I'm a keen amateur DJ - living room, bedroom, kitchen and even bathroom - playing anything and everything that moves people: latin funk, disco, beats, breaks, jungle, early hip hop ...........and songwriter/singer/guitarist...well, I try!

thanks for reading
