Re: OVO - Original Vinyl Only.


I can see that... if yer take a £100 record and someone spins a £5 boot before you, you'd be fairly and justly p1ssed off.

But my point is, what difference does it make to the punters?

Re: OVO - Original Vinyl Only.


The only expensive records I play are ones I couldn't get cheaper or were never re-issued (which is a great deal of them!).

I'm really much more interested in a normal crowd. It keeps the music alive and out there rather than trapped as a museum piece. I find to them you can play good music (rare or not) and people vote with their feet. In any scene there's a whole lot of "fitting in" and expectations required that frankly I can't be arsed with.

Sorry about the shameless plug, but that's what "Its your thing!" is all about - great quality tunes with none of the bollox.

Re: OVO - Original Vinyl Only.


I,m no dj but when I did it was off what ever I could get my hands [sign in to see URL] I were to have a go now I could do a pretty good set these days off vinyl but I could certainly do a beter one if I was able to play off cd,s or even [sign in to see URL] great that there are such collecters unearthing great finds etc,but as a punter I,m not going to stand by the booth and try and spot what label its on If its good [sign in to see URL] be dancing or in my case tapping my toes with vigour ! I work with a lot of (so called)superstar dj,s and years ago you,d get the [sign in to see URL] last gig I worked on the dj turned up in columbia with a bag of clothes and a laptop, plugged it in, mixed of it etc he tore the roof of the place,why because he played the right tunes.

I'm not talking about you in particular Craig, just making a general statement. And hands up, I'd be feckin' hacked off if it happened to me. Superb sets you played too fella, nice mix of stuff!

You know I'm a bit of an anorak when it comes to vinyl, but if I'm bothered about original issues, label variations, UK releases etc I'll get on the internet, or go to a fair, or eBay, or have a blather with the likes of Cally. When I go to clubs I listen to the music, and as long as it's class I don't care what it's played off.

But here's where I'm a hypocrite I suppose. If I was guesting at someone else's night, I'd probably take 100% original vinyl. Unless whoever it was made a point that they were happy with whatever.

And another point... if I had a £1000 record, and a £5 re-issue of the same record, why would I take the £1000 record?

Punters complaining about boots though, that's a strange one. If your idea of fun is craning your neck to watch the DJs then more power to them... The tune's the same, the either like it or not, why worry?

If the suit is good I'll wear it. I have loads of tailored ones but also a nice collection of suits from Oswald Boateng and Adam.
