  • I Love Independants!

    14 sept. 2006, 12h24m

    There's an independant music store near where I work, and they have a sale on vinyl.

    I finally got my paws on an original vinyl copy of Dark Side of the Moon. I'm looking forward to that, it's in prestine condition too.

    I also saw a double vinyl compilation of some live Jimi Hendrix too. Mmmm... Vinyl.

    A tenner well spent methinks.

    I love independant music stores.
