Private seller, collector, music-fan... haven't been selling for quite a while, need to find time and energy to set it up again. A lot of stuff is waiting in boxes. Meanwhile, though - if you see something you like in my collection, feel free to make an offer. What could go wrong.

So about me: first album I remember listening to (age 4) was The Beatles' Let It Be. First album bought (age 8) Elvis Presely - Comeback Special. Then Police - Ghosts In The Machine. Then Pink Floyd - The Wall... and so on it went, to form a lifetime obsession with music and a collection that now numbers in the who-knows-how-many albums. I'll try to list all of it in 'my collection', I really will, but...

Managed a CD shop (dismally - was too young) when CD's were starting out as a format. Managed a second-hand record store (much better - learned something) for a few years after that, and DJ'd (extremely well) for about a decade. Then moved to Holland, BA and MA in Visual Arts, and now am a functioning artist and professional cook.

Obviously, by now, I'm sort of a post-genre music fan - I'll keep it (or a copy of it) as long as there's anything in there that I enjoy; might be the lyrics, delivery, production, bassline, harmonies, whatever (although, to be honest, my top-artist list would be much more limited in diversity). Not interested in multiple editions of things - meaning that I tend to not buy or keep variant editions of albums, obsessively collecting serial numbers instead of music.

I don't know why I'm writing this. Who cares about this crap? Who reads it?

Lifetime favorites (In no particular order): Zappa; Jim Thirlwell; Daveid Allen / Gong; Chuck D; Bowie; Prince; Lydon; Biafra; Hammill; Fall; Ka-Spel / LPD; Einsturzende Neubauten; AC/DC; Sonic Youth; Wyatt; Dr. Dre; Sisters Of Mercy; Lou Reed; Roger Waters; The The;

Enough.

Not much of a poster / blogger / community-er (no time), but I hope to, in my way, make a presence here and do a bit to contribute to this wonderful site.

Other obsessions... er, interests: Comics, Comedy (preferably the stand-up variety, mostly British), books, good TV, Movies, Making Food, Writing, and - of course - Making Art.

Feel free to contact!

Also, get some stuff on my b... b... blog.

A truly superb remastering. Like moving from a black and white TV to full HD color. Must-have.

Just to point out, Oxymoron and Hostile do not appear on any of the 3 releases listed here, so if you're a Fall completist...
Also, in my opinion, this compilation sounds much better than Oswald Defence Lawyer.

You never know what you're going to get with these guys, their output has been remarkably inconsistent. Rolling Stones wannabes? Madchester Ecstasy clowns? In this case, you get the aggressive electro space-hippies tripping on acid and gasoline, and ... See full review

Now playing. I gave this a quick once-over and couldn't figure out what or why it was (which doesn't happen often). Now I'm giving it a proper listen, and it's a beautiful and powerful breakup / divorce / reunion song cycle. Beautifully played solid ... See full review

Their strongest album in years. Love it. Atmospheric and poetic, sentimental and tough.

Definitely one of the best albums of 2016.
Pure kintic energy; conceptual, artistic and technical brilliance, relentless elation. Masterpiece.
And it's their 4th album in two years.
