    You weren't a Grifter kid then! I was bought a Puch and had to look happy about it! :(

  • I was into graffiti and making music. I wish I still had the old rap tapes my friend "Def Jeff" (that was 1985) did. We used to be called Def Jeff & The EFX Posse. The graf crew was I.T.B. (Instinct To Bomb). Those where good times. My only regret was selling off quite a few records back in about 1995.

    It was the music that started me off collecting records , about 25 years and loads of dosh later i'm still at it :)

    Straight away I started collecting in 1983(Man Parrish-Hip Hop Be Bop was my first 12"/Crucial Electro my first Electro Lp), right up to 1991 when I sold my whole Hip Hop/Electro 12" collection to buy stuff for my first house, aaaaarggghh!

    In 1998 I borrowed a copy of Man Parrish 'Hip Hop Be Bop' of my mate(I never gave it back though) and started a mission to collect every Electro/Hip Hop 12" that was featured on Street Sounds Electro(I still haven't got them all), but after digging deeper I found loads of Electro that I'd never heard of, so I had a new mission-to collect every Electro record released in the 80's, this was until I bought a copy of Freddy Fresh's Rap Records book and realised just how much of this music was released and I would have to be a millionaire to get them all(or stay extrememly skint), so now I just buy stuff I'm interested in, I'm up to about 1000 12"s of 80's old school Hip Hop/Electro, mostly 82-86 stuff.

    I've got records that are not featured in Freddy's book, maybe we should start a thread for Freddy for his next edition lol......
