  • Huge radio station clearout

    On Saturday morning I went to Dublin's largest Oxfam shop which was selling off 25,000 records they got from a radio station. This had been very heavily publicised and it was pretty animal getting to access the records as they were on long trestle tables with only about 18 inches between them.

    Annoyingly I discovered that since they were donated by a radio station in Belfast they had been on sale there for the previous 2 weeks so it was well picked over already. It was just the rock/pop of 1976-91 vintage, No major rarities that I could see and a lot of it was priced accordingly. €40 for Tonto’s Expanding Headband, even €15 for stuff like Dexy’s.

    I also discovered that the jazz and blues went on sale that day in Belfast. If I had known that a day trip up there would have been the plan. Now whatÂ’s the chance it would be worth going to Belfast tomorrow - if I could get the time off - I suspect the best bits will be gone and I suspect the "jazz" may be fairly straight ahead and square. But it is not coming to Dublin afterwards its going to another town that'd be just as hard to get to for a day trip.

    Anyway gripes aside this is what I hauled out, lots of jazz funk The Cheapest ones were the Denis Waterman lps for 50c and the Can album was €18. Total was about €135.

    personally I think that prize goes to China Crisis' classic 'Difficult Shapes and Passive Rhythms (Some people think it's fun to entertain)' which manages to combine pretension, length, sheer ludicrousness- AND brackets (always a sign of a bad album title)...but 'Please Hammer Don't Hurt Them' comes pretty close
    We know when a mate buys it for you too.

        The Moonflowers' Hash Smits is crap, but appropriate.

        Well I went back at lunchtime for a more civilised browse and fund a Roy Ayers from 79 and a Franki Valli from 72 with The Night for €6 a piece and some cheaper stuff by Love Unlimited and AWB. And best of all a 12" of We Call It Acieed for €1.50 - well it had no price so I asked and the guy took it in the back and came back and said that was the price so I decided not to argue. I think it may be a remix but if not it is a spare too.

        Still a few Brass Construction, BT Express, Crusaders and Muscles lps left there too.

          the first Crusaders album on Blue Thumb is worth picking up if cheap, although Oxfam pricing could well be higher than a real dealer price...

            They had a 4 track with 1 Crusaders song from each of the first 4 albums and Southern Knights and a few othrs I already had. At €6 a pop not really worthwhile.

              I saw the Moonflowers at the Cambridge BoatRace Pub many years ago; halfway through the set the singer pulled his kaks down, shat in them & pulled his trousers back up again. The barman kicked his head in.
