    Hi Irwin69 and welcome.

    It can be a bit slow around here sometimes, so the best thing to try to do is to wake up the old men & women here with a few questions, or start a few threads. From your self-intro, I think you'll be at home here.

    Hi,
    Another newbie but oldie...compulsive crate digger and miner of charity shop bins. Started buying records around 1980. Lent too many records to friends and girlfriends which I never got back. Started selling my remaining records about 10 years ago to clear out the cupboards...but a decade later have considerably more than I started with. Not quite sure what happened there. Main focus of collecting is Island LPs, rebuilding 1980s synth/new wave collection and audiophile classical.

    Dang! Today’s a bank holiday and I fly back tomorrow. Have seen some though. Some nice ones in flexi disk greetings cards with fold out stylus. Swanky.

    In English or Polish? Both?

    Cheers lads, Poland has been excellent, a real eye opener. I’ll post holiday snaps (raers!) in a more coherent manner when I’m back in Blighty.

    Well done for making it out of the shadows. God knows we need more active members around here. Krakow and Warsaw sounds great!

    Willkommen Rusty. You'll be knocking back the Krupnik then. One of our kids is in Poland just now. Could I get him to hunt for records for me? Of course not. Just wait until he next asks where his socks are.

    I'm Rusty, near enough 40, from Portsmouth, UK. I'm a keen collector, that started before getting into hunting for samples, and formally a vinyl DJ which stopped when I ran out of stamina for the late nights and drunken youths... (Although I would be keen to get back into it for the right audience).

    Anyway, thought I'd say hello before wading into conversation, thanks for the years of information.

    Rusty

    Hi all,

    My name is Branko, I'm 35 year-old civil engineer and 3D modeler from Bosnia. Into music from an early age and always broadening the scope, so now I'm into all kinds of stuff - soul/ disco/ funk/ hip-hop / psych/ rock/ prog/ jazz/ fusion/ metal/ avantgarde/ experimental/ synth/ new wave/ psychobilly/ surf/ electronica. Pretty sure I've left something out, but you'll have to excuse me, because I'm yet to buy my first record, as my daily job and my kid let me enjoy the music only during the commute. For various reasons, my collecting still is really not a collecting, but I love music too damn much not to start anytime

    I found about the forum while looking into a Martin Lovegrove interview, and got immediately interested. Maybe it's the forum nostalgia thingy, but I like it here

    Personally, I'm into visual arts, 3D modelling and all kinds of different media, so feel free to contact me, because I'd really like to contribute in any way. I will be updating my IG page, so you can check it out and see if there's anything you might like.

    Welcome Ollie

    Get stuck in as soon as you can as you'll find people here generous with information and occasionally with vinyl too. (You'll have to post a certain amount, maybe 30 or 50 posts to take part in the freebies).

    Start a few threads and enjoy yourself!
