    Thanks chaps.

    I have a load of record porn for you, but my plan to upload them this afternoon was scuppered by the cat. I'll leave the rest of that story to your imaginations, because it will be much more interesting than reality (like records!), and deliver your fix at the next opportunity.

    Like the man said, first thing you learn is that you've always got to wait...

    Room for a small one on top?

    Hello, my name is Ricky and I collect records.

    (round of sympathetic applause from the room)

    I have, I'm afraid, been lurking. I stumbled across this place (sorry guv, I didn't see nuffink, honest) sometime earlier this year.

    I was doing a search on record cleaning tips.

    Or it may have been what kind of plastic sleeve to put your records in.

    I've been hiding my shame while furtively sneaking back for a regular peek to look at pictures of records.

    Hello, my name is Ricky and I like looking at pictures of records.

    (disgusted gasps of affronted disbelief from the room – some of the women faint)

    Being a bit analogue in my ways, I have shied away from joining in so far, finding it hard get over my 19th century fear and distrust of the internet and the suspicion that once I cross the threshold I am doomed forever... Oh well. Whatever, eh?

    I grew up in the 80s (let's say I'm in my *mumble* thirties) and 90s musically speaking. This essentially means I love Vince Clarke and noisy indie music from the past. And punk and disco, and electro, and reggae, and soul (northern or otherwise). And things with wobbly noises on. And so on. I'm no afficionado when it comes to the loungey/libraryey/breaksy/psychy/jazzy desirables that I have deduced are a link for a lot of you on here, but I love enough rock-and-pop (my favourite genre) through the ages to reckon we have enough in common to avoid me being laughed out of town. Not by everyone anyway. Not at the same time.

    Due to lack of income, almost all of my record buying is done in charity chops and bargain boxes. A quid is pretty much my limit for anything, unless I really need it. Therefore most of my buys are non-rare and, frankly, from the 70s and 80s. I splash out a little bit of proper money in a proper second-hand shop every couple of months (maybe 20 quid if I've been good), or ebay if I decide I really need something, and buy new new records when I'm flush.

    The upshot of this is actually that I buy plenty of records, but they are all old ones. I get my new music the way the kids do.

    I sometimes have to stop myself from going to look for more records before I've listened to the ones I've just bought.

    I get a little bit panicky if someone else is already looking at the records.

    I spend slightly more time than I ought to (ie any time whatsoever) looking lovingly at my records on their shelves, and then straightening them.

    I don't know much about that jazz stuff.

    I do love the Beatles. The Beach Boys too.

    (general uproar, chairs are thrown, sound of gunshots)


    I don't know how much I'll post here, being a bit shy. Forgive me if I'm an occasional dipper. I may well ask a few questions that have been answered many times before – there's stuff I'd like to know and possibly get involved in that is still a little bit mystical to me. Just point me at the threads! I'm sure you'll be very kind.

    So. I think that's quite enough from me right now. Would you like to see some of my records? Ahem.

    ...i think that's enough for introduction, don't you?
    Welcome aboard sir - the more the merrier

    Usually we talk about records - sometime about digital music - but mainly records - oh and sometimes there are digressions into some real world stuff but usually its just records

    Hope you like it and want to stay
