Just citing the so called godfather of Punk: I'm bored... I'm the chairman of the bored!

This has to be my 4th account or something, the first one being barryblunt, if I'm correct. I had already been buying and selling records by that name at ebay in its very early days like from 1999 on. Later I went by the name CHAIRMANoftheBORED, an account that I have closed accidentially. If you have any questions concerning any of my submissions just drop me a line!

My Steckenpferd is US Hip Hop and Punk Rock/Hardcore music, but I'm versatile: I love a lot of other stuff like classic Honky Tonk and Bakersfield Country, Rockabilly, Surf, Garage, Psychedelic (not Progressive), 60s & 70s Soul, some Post Disco (not Disco), Funk / Breaks, Thrash and sometimes even some electronic stuff. Music with english or german lyrics is what I prefer.

I collect vinyl only. Usually the genuine 1st retail pressing is what I'm after. I like the idea to own the same version of a record that the artist might have been given by his label at the day of its release, so to say.

Get lost with your $%§&'#* bootlegs and any poor reissues!!!

I remember rumours circulated back then after 9/11 that the record had been withdrawn because of the b-side "Target Practice". It actually took a while, but after some months this record appeared: Dilated Peoples - Worst Comes To Worst / Worst Comes To Worst (Remix)

That's exactly what I have been thinking since I have heard this track first. This seems to use a sampler! Most likely '87 or even later... Check out how the other early Cheryl Records releases tell us the adress, this does not.

What exactly is the idea behind a 5x7" set?
- It does not sound better
- You have to flip the vinyl after every song
- you can't cut/scratch/mix a 7" especially a 45rpm record properly
- it's expensive
