        I still wince whenever I see records end up in a skip.

          I used to want this very one...

          Give me 50p and half an hour and I'l get you a couple.

          It's the 78s I feel for. What chance did they have?
          ...if in doubt consult your dealer.

            went to a gig last night in Manchester by the uni.
            there was a guy with crates and crates lined up full of records just on the road, out the back of a van.

            dunno if its related

                    Interesting how Shaky invariably favours left three-quarter profile, as if he has a seeping pustulent boil under his right ear or something.
                    His raised collars also make me wonder if he has a "cut here" tattoo.

                      His drummer has found a novel way of protecting himself from Shakey's moves, either that or he hates him. :

                        I've just looked at all 32 of Shaky's lps and all 65 of his singles on Discogs, and this one is the only portrait in which he favours the right side of his face.



                        but there's nothing wrong with his face. I wonder if Shaky has a body image problem?

                          Image is probably reversed. Cant be arsed to look through the 97 images you did to prove this theory.

                            That's why I did it for you. There about three full frontal portraits, and a couple of live action photos in which he pulls a "shaky legged" pose showing the right side of his face from a distance, but otherwise it is the same pose over and over and over again livened up a series of horrible jackets and double denim.

                              My theory is that this originally faced the same way as well, but they flipped the image during the design process. They probably felt the whole dynamic flow of the sleeve was increased with SS facing the other way, as the fucking pole he's leaning against would get in the way, fucking photographer should have thought about that, shouldn't he?

                              Assuming that was the case, and I think it was, then this means that there are NO closeups of Shakey showing the right side of his face. Frightening.
