|After Vinyl comes Vinyl to digits|
Anytime I'm involved in retail my mind invariably turns back to my Cousin Tom, Tom worked in Our Price records in the late 70's and/or early 80's in Oxford Street and Charing Cross Road before going on to find success in the Indie scene (as associated with some famously long overcoats) he was part of a band (And The Native Hipsters - who scored big with Look There Goes Concord Again).
Tom went on with other bands (Fawcett's Design For Living and Fraff) and ultimately as a publisher and promoter under the Artrocker umbrella.

[Our Price was big at a time when Vinyl was used for listening to music and as well as the purely posing aid it is today]
|This was very much at 'Our Price' as I recall.|
Well the day in the 'Pop Up' did have a bit of a break through with our first sale but there was still plenty of time for me to read and I've got a bit of a run at The Rough Trade Story.
Interesting to find that climate change sceptic and Jeremy Corbyn's brother Piers (what a posh name!) was a part of the property squatting gang in London - it's interesting to see how far so many of the counter culture figures have moved on.

Anyway I'm hoping to see Tom again soon after more than a dozen years and to get in the Zone while I'm reading the Rough Trade Story (a project which was for a while his/Artrocker's) I have also been listening to Radio 6 (which is okay but it is basically an upmarket oldies station less the commercials to my ears).
