Two for today

Renegades of Funk
A re-issue of a old classic by the big man of funk (ah, the memories) - e-a-tar-a-yoyo...

Chamber Music
Love that fake 'been in the charity shop for 20 years' look of this newbie from Thighpaulsandra.

I always loved that renegades cover!
Wonder why now for re-issue?

Hiya psychbloke

yeah me too - felt that the DC comic feel was a revolution at the time when most 12 inches were just twee photo-shoots. No idea why it's taken them this long to re-issue but glad tommy boy did - nice heavy vinyl... and deluxe plain card inner (funny how these things matter hey)

oh had a go at my version of batgirl but it ended up, well too girlie... although the bodyless head with grated batwings almost got posted...

Yeah, much to me bemusement, they've even selling reissue vinyls of that in HMV, Yeovil...

don't think anyone's been buyin' 'em though :-)

hehehehe - i got mine from one of those soul(less) places too - probably the only person in the shop who knew who they were

(even had to undergo torture by Mr Blunt while waiting to hand my cash over)

Yeah, and now they're pushing that Jose Gonzales bloke as the latest Radio 2-friendly 'sensitive' singer/songwriter sensation... gimme Delia Gonzales (and Gavin) any day...

It's weird what's getting reissued on vinyl and turning up in these places...they've been churning out re-pressings of old Sugarhill Rap classics too, and the De La Soul back-catalogue (weren't they on Tommy Boy too? Maybe someone's sold on a bunch of licensing rights), which is kinda cool. Nice to see this stuff back on the shelves complete w/ original covers and stuff...

I have a rule - if I've drawn it, even if crap, it gets posted - but then you probably guessed that.....
