    My photography is
    kinda on hold atm.
    Too many things occupying my time.
    Having said that, I am free for the next three weeks and the Technics are warmed up if you want to come down :-)

    Evening All! I'm Terry, I'm the wrong side of 40 but the right side of 50. I'm an artist, author and ex-boyband member (don't worry, you've never heard of my band...), and I still have a lot of vinyl but nothing to play em on.
    I class myself as English but I've lived in Wales since 1980, which is fine by me as it's the home of Doctor Who. I have two kids, a spacehopper and a fear of being found as a cobweb-coated skeleton slumped over my keyboard with Facebook still on.

    The stuff I'm always really excited about discovering is electroacoustic/"experimental" music (the droney stuff more than the clangy stuff) and mellow string soli (guitar, lute, harp, veena, etc). As I get older I realize I lean more toward genres that sell for pennies at the thrift and don't inflame my tinnitus.

    Of course I also love tons of less esoteric soul/rock/ssw/blues stuff. I've only been seriously accumulating records for about 7yrs so it seems like I'm constantly veering down new avenues. Hoping this board will send me down a few more.

    Get stuck in James. What sort of stuff do you like by the way?

    Hi guys! My name is James. I live in Colorado, but am a former resident of North Yorkshire who telecommutes for a UK company, so I've got one foot in the VG+ realm.

    I post a little bit on Waxidermy which has been great because there are a lot of people there whose tastes are similar to mine, but I've been told VG+ is a little more about music rather than just collecting, which is probably more my speed.

    Looking forward to wasting a lot of time here!

    Cheers fella. Had a look at their output - nothing at all other than Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan that I'd recognise, but then I suppose that's the point of the label isn't it? Thanks for the info.

    Roistoooo! Nice to see you back here. Would be nice to bump into you in the flesh sometime too, it's been too long. Stopping by Digelius when unemployed can be painful though
