A snapshot of life in the residence of an underground house producer's mother:
"Ah mommy. I made a house record and lots of people want it. That makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside."
"So son, I guess you'll sell that record to a lot of people - and they'll all dance and have a great time."
"No mommy - you're so old, and you don't understand the new underground. Thousands can hear a shitty rip of it through their laptops on youtube, but to be really underground, you need a big discogs want list. No repress, you dig?"
"Son, you kids are crazy stupid. Won't that piss everyone off."
"Yes mommy it will. But it will also help generate interest in future releases. And if they complain, we will just point out that they are soulless capitalist scum, who think they can have everything they want, whenever they want, and that's not cool."
"But they can rip it from you tube."
"No mommy, that's not underground - they have to support the artist."
"But how?"
"You're confusing me now mommy. I need to go and be hype with my friends."
"Don't forget you're sandwiches, son. No one is too underground for sandwiches."
"What did you make me mum?"
"A baguette with really ripe brie, camembert and vacherin cheese."
"Fuck me. That's a lot of cheese mom."
"It was on offer."

very surprised to see this gracing bargain bins. further evidence, should it be needed, that the price tag on a record has little to do with quality and a great deal to do with trend. free spirits can pick up a great record for little money...

Chipping in with those below. Dug this out for a spin today, and still sounds fresh. These boys were onto something. 1 big fat tune per side, just as the vinyl gods intended.

Strange how he described volume one as a great record, but now it's overrated. Now that he's an edit genius himself he's saving a lot of money. Soon he will have enough to start his own edit label. And so it continues...

I love this record. I've got two copies of the purple one and it's quite a crackly press. I've owned both from new. So if you buy a mint one and you think you've been stitched up, you probably haven't. Pick it up anyway as it's fecking brill.

Yeah it's a complete piss take that an artist that you supported became successful and then made his work available to people that wanted it. You could have saved £10 which was a lot of money 50 years ago.
