    OT - Music. Gigs. Sounds bought.

    A thread to post up your musical buys and info on gigs you've been to. You never know, you might encourage someone else to visit a gig or listen to a band they don't know.

    My 2 most recent buys.

    Garnet Mimms - Looking for you in VG condition vinyl (although the labels have been cannibalised). Without the cannibalisation of the label probably worth £200 and I could possibly get between 80 and 100 for it. Long time want and it plays excellently. Couple of crackles in the 1st 2 rotations and then just about perfect. Youtube video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GX1lYmU4dFo

    Boddie box set. The long defunct USA Boddie label. The current owner of the back catalogue went through the old tapes and acetates and came up with 6 never released songs. To me 5 good ones and one less so. Released in a 3 x 45rpm box set. Interestingly, they are unaware of the artists. Hence each song being by "Unknown Artist". Limited edition of 1000 sets. Digital versions available to listen at https://boddierecordingcompany.bandc...ie-acetate-box

    2 good deals IMO. My current singles collection has cost me about 8 grand to put together over the past 8 years. Probably worth around 20 grand. Not yet paid 3 figures for a single and most of the ones I still really, really want are all well into 3 figures. They will, very likely remain on the wants list.


    Different genre. I went to see 2 local bands in Amstelveen last night. Both playing "melodious" but hard music. I enjoyed both sets. Look them up on the usual outlets if interested. Floodlines (Google Floodlines band - There's also a Dutch podcast of the the same name), we know the guitarist (left in the left hand picture), good friend of my son and he occasionally crashes in our spare room. Floodlines play their own material. Outlaw Queen (Google Outlaw Queen band) have a female singer who attends the Rock Academy and the girl can sing, do 50/50 their own work and covers. IMO both are well worth a listen.

    That Garnett Mimms cut is a belter, I have it on a couple of compilations

    Great fan of Man since 2 ounces of plastic / Spunk Box era. They were truly Ace

    The above statement made more astonishing given that they were Welsh

    Yes that’s a massive prejudice to overcome, imagine my angst as I was also a fan of Budgie.

    Ace is the right word as Martin Ace is the last remaining from the glory days of the 70s and his son Josh is guitarist

    Has anybody had a listen to Floodlines or Outlaw Queen yet? Well worth a listen and it's not my usual genre.... anything but, in fact.

    A mere 30 quid Andy. Absolute bargain.

    Floodlines - decent powerpop, not sure I could go a whole gig of that but mighty fine anyway, a bit Stereophonics, prob showing my age as I bet they godown a storm in a sweaty club

    Less impressed with outlaw Queen, a bit this and that

    Well done.

    Seems there’s only us listen to music that we’re proud enough to share, so I’ll continue.

    Currently looking for a Derby or Notts gig for The Heathen Apostles (‘Americana’) in July, alerted to them by my friend Sarah Vista who is playing support. Check em out. RA, if you’re reading this they might be your cup o tea

    I tried to listen to Floodline but all the videos appear to be on Facebook thus outwith my access. As for Garnett, soul music is so far out of my comfort zone that 30 seconds was too much. Sorry MA, I'm sure you love it but it's a "no" from me

    Yep...tad too Country and Western for my tastes but I agree...they’re very good. I’m actually involved in the ‘Live and Local’ stuff and we put bands and plays on at our village church but I think some might object to The Heathen Apostles playing such a venue!
    Not sure how big a venue you’re looking for or what sort of fee but there are some decent small venues available in Derbyshire...Crich Village Hall for instance or Holloway where I saw an excellent Cornish Bluegrass band last year. Might be too small though...probably only hold a couple of hundred.
