As Solaris 100 is a bit of a record collector and does some DJing on the side, we did spend some time going around record shops. I always enjoy doing this kind of thing but for different reasons – I like looking at all the old covers. We visited quite a few shops and as I mentioned previously, I was tired and needed a break so I didn’t really take note of each and every one of them. But I did take a few pics here and there. So come on in…
It’s impossible to own all the funny covers in the world, so we took to taking photos of them. Divine is always great in my book, as well as Rick James. Every time I see Rick James there days, I just hear Dave Chapelle’s voice in my head: “I’m Rick James, bitch!”. Very rude but extremely funny, if you watch the whole comedy sketch. “Cocaine, is a helluva drug”.
The great Melanie Safka is wearing a lovely crochet table cloth. One could make three dresses out of that one these days. And that’s me, being a total Morrissey/ The Smiths geek. Shamelessly, it must be added.
Soon I hope to be posting the photos from this latest trip – hopefully it won’t take as long!
