    Room 101 What would you put in it and why?

    There’s more, much more: Footballs on pedestals, raffia work, cyclists with cameras, skinny jeans, “our NHS”, naturists, comedy socks / ties, dates in a box, the disappearance of blue three wheelers, whelks, champions leagues for people who aren’t champions / World Series involving teams from one country, camping, foods that smell of fart, KTF / KOKO / shaking thumbs, people obsessed with feckin daft coffee at four quid a pop, man hugs, fly tippers, Liam Gallagher, shark’s eyes, winner stays on, shortbread, East 17, ‘national treasures’, duck eggs and goats cheese, leather waistcoats, sovereign rings, Piers Morgan, ponytails, shit art, guitar solos, huge watches, the Queen’s children, cheap shoes, Big Sam, people who can’t tie a bloody tie, people ruining French chateaus with their ‘creativity’, noisy eaters, flies, turn ups, turnips, nettles, white dog shit, ‘exotic’ tea, record middles that are too big, records with middles, Nigel Farage, vg+ when it’s fooked, Radio 1, talentless twats talking about ‘stand up’ like it’s welding, Klopp’s gnashers, baseball caps, names on coloured football boots, over use of the high hat cymbal, Aussie Aussie Aussie, anyone over 60 in a leather jacket, the word “cool”, driving shoes, the price of sweets in garages. Focker out.

    Room 101 What would you put in it and why?

    Pacifically, skelington, Draclia, continue on, cuttelry, backstop, selfies, pedantic bin men, people commenting uselessly on sales / wants threads, earworms and sound bites, kids with their own name on a shirt, The Daily Mail, Presidents with small hands, Drew Pritchard, the ‘new’ Top Gear, people eating wood lice, white people speaking like black people, that talentless chancer on Money for Nothing, celery, DJs messing constantly with gain knobs, people looking in your sales box who NEVER buy a record, Michael McIntyre (and anyone who has ever laughed at anything he’s said or done, ever), the surname Banjo, football socks over the knee, standing ovations for absolutely f*ck all, predictions about apocryphal winter weather, wagon drivers flashing for no good reason on motorways, quinoa, continental breakfasts, lamps which require you to go back to the same shop for a bulb, old people crossing roads, mobility scooters trying to look like they’re not mobility scooters, that fecker who makes ice cream outta snails, people asking if everything is ok as I lift the fork, magpies, people who are too tight to buy a mailer so cut up a box and tape it together around a record in an attempt to help you break it when you try and open it. All this anger can’t be good for me

    Room 101 What would you put in it and why?

    Lots of words and phrases: ”guys” and “can I get” in shops and restaurants “stone mint”, “birth sleeve”, “vinyls”, “toon” and “on that floor” Scene-wise, people with no idea putting non-events on in order to charge folk to listen to people with no records / idea who think that fannying about behind the decks or wearing a hat somehow disguises the fact that they’ve no records / idea. Merry Christmas x

  9. I hear you. The point I was trying to make was that it can be a ball ache selling records these days too. The whole 'grading' thing is inherently subjective of course so you're always going to find variations; they shouldn't be miles apart though should they - hence the emergence of the SS system. All that's required really is a bit of integrity and half an idea. Takes seconds to send someone a couple of pics or whatever but I'm always very clear when I'm selling stuff that anyone can send a 45 back if they're not happy, at my expense. It's tough to legislate for idiots though, buyers or sellers. Personally, I just don't deal with them again, respond to 'wants' posts or whatever. Life's too short.
  10. Works both ways of course. The world is at least as full of chancers looking for rare records in pristine condition for bugger all. Life was easier in some respects when you had to resort to going to venues.

    What’s the most you’ve paid for a record

    Walter and the Ads is one of about four records I’d pay heavily to own Pete. Hope you’re well mate

    What’s the most you’ve paid for a record

    Paid plenty for my two all-time top wants: Combinations on Kellmac and Prophets on Shrine; sold other, v good stuff to buy both and look at or play them as often as poss. What I paid and what they might sell for now or in future is an absolute irrelevance tbh. I own my two favourite records and never thought I would, not for a second. Loads of 45s come and go but some never will. Comes down to how much they mean to you I guess, that and whether you’re starving (I’d choose starvation though). I’ve done without all sorts to buy my records and would absolutely do so again to keep the ones that mean the most. Really big part of my life for forty years and certainly not an investment, fad or exercise in showing off. Anyone fitting those bills deserves everything they get.

    For clarity, no 'uniform' required on Saturday. You won't be able to buy Constable's hay wain with a fist in the corner or NS yacht varnish either; not this time anyway. (There may be liquorice on the door: we accept no responsibility if you over indulge and shit yourself) It'll just be seven hours of dead good rare soul records, many of which you will struggle to hear anywhere else and certainly all in one night - apart from when I'm on, obviously - accompanied by a load of balm pots jumping about to em and generally having a nice time.

    I'm conscious that I haven't really contributed to the thread thus far; had some difficult times recently due to a family bereavement so it's all been a bit tricky. It has been touch and go as to whether I'd be able to make it next weekend but I'm really looking forward to filling my head with some positive stuff for a change and will be there with knobs on - and record box; I can only apologise Andrew It's been waaay too long since we last got 'our lot' together, plus its Chalky's 80th and Andy D's on; why wouldn't you? Allied to all of that, my best friend's running it with me, plus I've missed Carl's all round mental stability, Dave's unbridled optimism and Lou's even temper. Given recent events, I'm gonna be a bit bolder in life from here on in I think. So, hope to see loads of you next Saturday at our rare soul do which is usually quite a bit better than ok. Phil

    Burscough Legion, Phil T, Brian Phillips, Bob H

    Really enjoyable night at Burscough last night. Great crowd in and a good mix of music I thought. Running a successful monthly night for so long takes some doing! Always a real pleasure to play some records down there.
