Your favourite and/or most random pieces of music memorabilia

I have a record that Richard (Moonboots) gave to me when I left the UK years ago with Fuck Off stickers over the labels on both sides. My wife thinks it is ridiculous but it has pride of place in my home.

I also bought records from A-1 that have property of David Morales on them. Seems like it was a thing back in the day.

I also have the setlist from the Gil Scott-Heron show at Coachella that was taped to the drummers kit. Not signed or anything but still nice to have.

Yours?

Random.

I was seeing an old client years ago, who was also called Chris. I mentioned that I was going to Dexy’s that night, and he darts off and comes back and gives me this… and no, it’s not hung up in our house :rofl:

I started and ran a clubnight in Manchester with Marcus Intalex. We played golf one day (before he launched his Trevino alias) and he was playing a mix of house and techno stuff & he gave me the cd with ‘self 7’ scribbled on.

Those tour riders must be super interesting.

My partner and I wanted to make them anonymous and publish them but it would still piss off too many people. Suffice to say I have subsidized the purchase of MANY condoms and blunts for some of the greatest rappers of all time.

I have a signed copy of Fox Base Alpha by St Etienne.

Not signed by them though. They were doing an instore promotion at HMV Liverpool in the early 90’s, I took my copy of the album down to get signed.

However, I got my days mixed up and cartoon pop icon Betty Boo was there instead.

I still got her to sign it anyway, she looked well miffed.
