    Nice home made artwork for a copy of "Made In England" on what's probably the original plain cover.
    Spotted this at the market last weekend. Missing the outer denim bag and the insert. Not my cuppa anyway so I left it.
    But I recognised the helmet design, wheres that been nicked from?

    well I did express an interest but when I told my mum about them she said she would get in touch with her, so who knows where that will go...

    You should have challenged her to a RACE. What an awesome spectacle that would have been. Your grandchildren would be in a hurry to be born just to hear about it. .

    I found this old daily sales and purchases book for one (of three) 2nd hand shops in Wolverton, Milton Keynes circa 1978/79 that my dad ran at my
    mums house yesterday and I have not seen it for over 40 years. I worked there in my early teens and yes, I was paid in records, I guess this is where
    my vinyl passion started. It's a selected snap-shot of the sales and purchases in the shop from a time before car boots and charity shops and I just wish
    there were photos of them, they ran from 1973 to 1980.




























    a grim day...

    I was one of the 15,000 to go out and buy Killing An Arab on Small Wonder. Still got it and it's survived in NM condition. Never bought much else of theirs at the time though.
    I was impressed with their Glasto set this year (saw it on the telly).

    I must start by saying this record and poster etc are not mine but belongs to a friend, we had been chatting about the bands we used to see in
    a pub in Milton Keynes in the late 70's, my claim to fame was seeing The Specials AKA and The Undertones among others in the tiny venue in MK.
    For some reason, maybe it was because there was another show in town although I cannot remember what, but I decided not to go and
    see this band called The Cure who were on there first tour, I had just never heard of them at the time. My friend did however go to see them
    and took his copy of their album Three Imaginary Boys to the gig along with some other bits and bobs he had related to them like some
    press pics his mate at the local paper had given him as well as a poster he's got from a local record shop advertising their debut single.

    He has had these things literally in his attic along with some other stuff for 40 years, (the mind boggles what he has kept but then again I'm just as bad!)
    So today I met up with him and I had to take some pics of the record and poster as these items and in this condition are virtually unheard of these days.
    He has no plans to sell them as he's still a keen collector but I thought I would share them with you as they are quite incredible.


    My guess is each member has signed next to the household item they relate too.


    They also signed the inside sleeve - note Robert Smith writing middle top where he's written 'my house'






    1st press release & photos







    A tiny stamp sized unused sticker with a pic of Lol Tolhurst





    Promo poster which came from a record shop in Northampton fully signed in the middle which he told me hasn't been out of the record sleeve since May 1979! crackers.
