I used to be a bit of a vinyl junkie. Still got a few hundred hiphop records, mainly late 80s early 90s.

To be honest I never use them anymore and I'm thinking about selling up (got to simplify my life occasionally). I do have turntables set up in my flat but they've barely been used this year. If the urge to make music takes me I tend to pick up the guitar.

I'll have to compile a list of what's there in preperation for the sad day when they have to leave me :?

picture discs just sound like crap, typically.

yep. can't say i'm much of a dj, just like to stretch out on the sofa with a few good slabs of vinyl, and watch the shadow of the cartridge bob up and down on the wall behind...
