I traded all my parents old singles at Project. Got enough for them to go swimming at Armley baths. Used to bike over there from Oakwood. Can you imagine kids doing anything like that now? (the biking and swimming, not selling the records).

I think that would have been in 1975.I also remember the big settees with headphones.You used to be able to get bootleg albums from Gerrolls in the Merrion Centre indoor market.Scene and heard, mentioned earlier in this thread, rings a bell but I cannot recall going in.I don't think I have ever been in Crash records but it was run by a lad in my class at school (Ian De ???). Don't know if that is still the case.

There is enough sadness in life without having fellows like Gussie Fink-Nottle going about in sea boots.
