About Me:

39 years old - became a mod at the age of 15 and used to hang out in cloud 9 ( manchester ) on saturday afternoons. Remember being frequently chased by 'casuals' from spin in, buying badges from underground and arndale market and my parka being spattered with blood on a regular basis from frequent batterings by 'mod haters'..happy days..wouldnt change a thing ! Was lucky enough to have inheritted my mums SKA singles which she bought from PECKINGS STUDIO in shepherds bush - originally just a market stall with Jamaican imports but now a shop run by the original owners son ( Chris Peckings ). I have since bought various studio1 platters from Chris and we both vibed off the 'full circle' vibe going on. Used to DJ at a few soul/ska nights in Manchester ( mainly in the late 80s - early 90s ) but now tend to only pull out the vinyl for weddings and birthday parties. My uncle used to DJ at the twisted wheel - and handed me down some of his old platters also. From this solid foundation continued to collect vinyl and im sure like many others on here will always have a special place in my heart for an original 45 !

Top 5 tunes at the moment:

impossible to name a 'top 5' but 5 tunes that i still listen and rate would be : Sixty Minutes : Homer Banks Startin the Hurt all over again : Brenda Holloway As long as I have You : Garnet Mimms Some Havin a Bawl : Pioneers Set me Free : Ken Booth
