Re: Record Fair Utrecht

i didn't find him either, i think he won't be there

Re: Record Fair Utrecht

I have this Vestax portable player but it didn't work on batteries anymore cause I used very old batteries once that started leaking and disforming the batterycompartment very badly. Today I got the idea to use the heat of a piantremover (see picture) to put back the form of batterycompartment and it worked, so now I can use my portable recordplayer on batteries (not just 220V) again! smile

Tip: so be warned using old batteries, or don't leave the batteries in the compartment after use to prevent this.

"Hey Queen, is that you on the far right and Intergalatic Gary on your side?"
-> yep!

"I remember standing next to I-G at Roberto's stand in Utrecht some years back."
-> the pic was taken in april 2007... and yeah, roberto's place was always a nice meeting point.

"Are the other two also robots?"
-> the one on the left is mick wills and next to him the guy with the innocent smile is rude66!

Re: Record Fair Utrecht

Rude 66 ofcourse (I wasn't sure it was him). And Mick Wills too, some illustrious company you got there for sure!

where are the good ones in the uk?

the only ones that i've been to have been full of really crappy 'classic rock' style records - just run of the mill so called 'classics' that are generally completely uninteresting.

most the vip fairs around the uk are always worth a look, your not gonna find a load of italo etc but there is always something to pick up. last one in my home town of northampton found a copy of the quest by drexciya for only a fiver!! did sell it on though for a nice price wink so yeah loads of bad rock but always a few nice bits especially in boxes that say something like - like rave & acid 50p each!!!

Re: Record Fair Utrecht

i wish i could join, but the paycheck arrives on monday.. bummer!

move along

Re: Record Fair Utrecht

tried to find you guys yesterday, it was too busy on the terraces.

Re: Record Fair Utrecht

Hey Sarah. What a pity you didn't find us cause we were there! Between 13.00-14.00u. I had to search a bit through the crowd too (it was very crowdy at that time). I found Queen, Rude (and later Mick Wills) sitting somewhat further from the stage (near the bar). Nice to talk to you robots in real life after such a long time of "knowing you" through the internet. That was refreshing I think.
A bit of a bummer that my portable recordplayer had melted (again!). The problems with my batteries weren't solved and started to heat up again in the compartment. Luckily I found out by coicidence while discussing our found records.  I hope it still can be fixed.

it was me accidentally posting under sarah's account, but she was there with me. i saw ruud today, always nice. will maybe post my list later, if i have the courage...

Re: Record Fair Utrecht

@ITALOMASTER
It is? I have no idea. They look very "cheap" if you know what I mean wink so maybe that's why the seller put it in the bargainbin.

@raoul
Ah, it was you (not Sarah). You form a pair of eyes (left+right) with your avatars I see now. smile The Sarah-avatar I recognize from the "angel eye" of the Fair Control.

edit: I checked the sleeve of Fair Control, it's not the same eye...

Re: Record Fair Utrecht

Was wondering how you were "fahren auf die Autobahn" yes. Nine people died in the traffic because of the bad weather in Holland during this weekend! I was going by train to Amsterdam but a train before had gone of the rails so there wasn't going a train directly to Amsterdam CS anymore. Well, made it via an indirect traintrack at last.

Don't know everything you found (r.l. crutchfields, silent types for example) but that Space Art is a nice find. Also nice sleeve (with keyboards on the man's back).

We'll meet again, somehow!

Ja, ongggeleueuvelijk that Vestax! big_smile Thinking about trying to repair it one more time before I through it in the trash! "Da's niet normaal, da's abnormaal, da's gewoon niet te geleueueueuven!" (watch the clip). big_smile

Re: Record Fair Utrecht

@queen: some nice finds there!

yes, i made it back to amsterdam but it took more than 2 hours because of that $&((^$ derailed train! there seems to always be shit happening on the railways when the record fair weekend is on..

Re: Record Fair Utrecht

@ Scarface
"Nine people died in the traffic because of the bad weather in Holland during this weekend!"
-> really? wow, that's crazy... but i guess it's also because the dutchies are not really yused to a weather like this, or?

"I was going by train to Amsterdam but a train before had gone of the rails so there wasn't going a train directly to Amsterdam CS anymore."
-> ja, i know... Herr 66 told me he had the same problem...

"Don't know everything you found (r.l. crutchfields, silent types for example)..."
-> those are both minimal synth 7"... got them for a good price from a very nice dutch dealer!
found one of them on youtube... check:


"...but that Space Art is a nice find. Also nice sleeve (with keyboards on the man's back)."
-> ja, i'm very happy Herr 66 found it for me (thanks again!) and it was super cheap too... 30 euro together with the first front 242 lp!

"Thinking about trying to repair it one more time before I through it in the trash!"
-> ha, ha, ha... noooooo!

funny clip! have to show it mick... maybe he can improve a bit his super dutch. wink


@ Herr 66
oh, mann... i feel for you! hopefully next time everything will be okay with trains...

Re: Record Fair Utrecht

Re: Record Fair Utrecht

Nice to meet you too. Ovni was 10 euro (mint) from a Belgian dealer. Kind of a frustrated guy but with lots of cool records.

That's what I heard on the radio at least... True thing about  the Dutch seeming not being used to cold/snowy weather or even hot and sunny for that matter. Two days of bad weather and the whole country is one big trafficjam. One hot and sunny day and the beer is sold out already. wink
