    Good call!

    of course, I realize I got the friggin' name wrong and it would have been Gary Davies not flamin' Bruno Brookes.

    Looks like perma-tanned orange 80's DJ Bruno Brooks. I could of course be mistaken, but it's an unsettling image.

    Made me laugh a lot though your post, cheers!

    And I'm not sure if this has been posted anywhere else but this is good for a quick browse http://defacevalue.com/
    some of the covers are 'customized' and some are 'as found' which are probably the best of the bunch......

    A couple of 'end of relationship' bits here - the first scrawled across both sides of Decameron's 'Mammoth' sleeve...






    Moody Blues in Search Of The Lost Chord inner sleeve serves as backdrop for an epitaph to poor old 'Albet'..



    A couple of chaotic 'fundamental christian' inners...




    This (quite well executed) image looks kind of familiar ?...



    And finally - a confused racist confesses to killing his mothers budgie.....



    ...and signs off with the hope his art will become well known - which I guess it now has !.....



    GOODNIGHT !

    I was spinning through some 45s this morning and when I came to this mighty JOOK EP, I found someone had scribbled their bemusement at its contents directly onto the label!

    Great thread. I know I bought these records for a reason.....:




    Striptease instructional record. One track sounds like a spiritual jazz-flavored Carmina Burana to me. (Unfortunately) the instructions are lost.




    Very American super cosy Xmas comp. Gotta love a pop-up scene inside a gatefold.


    Some promotional flexis. Organ, cola and massage.


    Swedish gymnastics jazz by Jan Johannson, exploitation breakdance music with Mr. Robot talking, weird emotional song for a porn documentary.

    I have the "Bags & Trane" lp on London upon which a previous owner has carefully inscribed "& Cheezy" in the same font, so it reads "Bags & Trane & Cheezy", which upon first glance looks quite convincing...

    I have a number of comedy singles where someone (I presume a man) has lovingly inscribed 'STOLEN from Mary Sheila Butcher' in jack the ripper scrawl on both sides of the label, and, as if that were not enough, on the ruddy sleeve too. You could devote hours to pondering the psychological motivations.. or not, as the case may be.
    Part of me hopes it was somebody who stole the records from Ms Butcher but, presumably, it would be more likely to be Ms Butcher herself (ie "if you have these, someone must have stolen them from me").

    Ha, at the record stall in Hyde they had (I assume they still do) similar things on loads of singles whole Sandie Shaw collection minus one rather obvious emission and many other entire 45 discographies minus the ones people actually want.
