YOU KNOW YOU'VE GOT A BUSY WEEKEND AHEAD...
...when 575kgs of double albums turn up on your doorstep on a Friday afternoon.
Astralasia, Moon Goose and 16th Dream Live - your new owners await.
SPAM OF THE DAY
Received an email overnight from the Chairman of Barclay Bank; nice of him to write, I thought, especially as he started the email with, "Hello Dear...."
NEXT STOP, READING
Never mind RSD, I'll be heading for Reading on the 19th for what promises to be one of the biggest UK record fairs of the year.
Buying, not selling, I hasten to add.
Match report: a bit disappointing, to be honest - quite a few empty stalls, surprisingly few buyers - maybe the april Utrecht fair is keeping everyone occupied.
...and NOT MANY KETTLES LEFT EITHER
maybe 20 copies left - all on a sort of pink-ish white vinyl, which isn't quite what was intended but looks very nice all the same.
THAT WAS THE RSD, THAT WAS
My experience of this year's ebay/major label festival was to drive past Banquet Records in Kingston at around 8.30, where the queue was nearly 100 yards long; two hours later, the queue was...100 yards long.
DAMN YOU, TESCOS
When is a rich tea biscuit not a rich tea biscuit? When it's a Tescos rich tea biscuit.
How long should a rich tea biscuit stay rigid when dipped into something hot and wet? surely more than half-a-second?
I think I'll leave it there - probably for the best.
