I’ve been a member for many years, but my former profile was locked, and I created a new one in 2016.

I collect mostly post-punk, new wave and alternative original, vintage vinyl releases that are in excellent/near mint condition, with all of the issued pieces (e.g. printed inner sleeve, poster etc.) I only acquire records I love and want to play regularly.

Favourite artists (and for whom I’m a completist collector) include Bowie, Killing Joke, Bauhaus, Siouxsie And The Banshees, Peter Gabriel, Roxy Music, Gary Numan, The Psychedelic Furs, Simple Minds, Shriekback, Depeche Mode, The Stranglers, Peter Murphy, Ultravox, John Foxx, The Damned, Love And Rockets, Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark, The Human League, The Chameleons, Catherine Wheel, Slowdive, Kate Bush, Bryan Ferry, Japan, Cocteau Twins, The Cure, Public Image Ltd., and others.
