I had my own go just after the punk-rock wars with my group The Jelly Babies. My son does his thing with Fearless Vampire Killers (not for plussers unless you're fond of My Chemical Romance). These days, working for the public sector I can barely afford to buy records anymore, so stumbling across this forum via Wolf People>Rich Hero>Spoke Records>VG+ (that's how I got here) has not helped. In two weeks I'm about £50 down- but richer in vinyl. I listen to everything, which is unfortunate because it means you have to buy everything. My partner has been very generous and I have a whole room to myself for records- which given there were 6 of us here at one point is VERY generous. I am in awe of the Record scans I've seen on here, and the dedication I've seen to unearthing the information. For anyone who hasn't seen it I'd recommend a look at the Spoke records site which shows how such knowledge can be put to good use.
    Welcome!! I have a funny feeling you'll fit right in here And hats off to listening to everything - does that include 80s failed pop?

Although my taste is mainly jazz I enjoy the site because of the varied and eclectic taste of the members; I've learnt so much and discovered an amazing amount of music via the site.

    Unfortunately, I got rid of my collection about 8 years ago but, as you all will testify, once you catch that crate-digging bug, it isn't so easy to get rid of. So, finances permitting, back to digging again, albeit tentatively.

    I live in Brighton, East Sussex and look forward to contributing to the continued success of VG+.

    Good to meet you all.

    Hi there. Used to sporadically post a few years back then lost log ins - moved house and became a father - so the time disappeared. When my two and a half year old was dancing around the kitchen to disc one of the Can Lost Tapes set I figured it was time I resurrected. I've learned a heckuva lot off some of the guys here over the past few years...perhaps I'll be able to feed some knowledge back at last.

    Not bad! Did you find Carsten Meinert's 'To You'? Coltrane-inspired spiritual Eurovision jazzwaltz.

    You should feel right at home here, rbhimself. I'm always surprised at how much great jazz there is in those styles.

    mostly straight bob, modal and spiritual things and some occasional funk here and there. I love finding new music or rediscovering known gems..
