I collect stuff that I like, basically (or think I might like, sometimes)... which doesn't really narrow it down much. I specifically collect anything Pogues or Bowie-related in particular.
I'm now also starting to collect records from (or relating to) my hometown of Hull, especially DIY and private pressings. If anyone can help with that then please do PM me.
The latter interest has led to the creation of my online project Hull Music Archive - find us at http://www.hullmusicarchive.co.uk

|The Most [SRT]|
B: In And Out
|The Most were based in Hornsea, East Yorkshire.|
Stuart Walton from the band went on to join Indians In Moscow.
The single was recorded at Fairview Studios and did quite well locally - it was also played by John Peel, I'm told.

|Hull Kingston Rovers|
A: Red, Red Robin
B: Rosie Ramsdale
|Picked up a second copy of this today - the one I got today also includes a round sticker, and comes in a PVC outer sleeve which has a vintage picture of the team printed on it. I'll add images in due course.|

|The Aces [Parlophone]|
A: I Count The Tears
B: But Say It Isn't So
|In fact the Aces weren't a Merseybeat band at all - they were from Hull, and still perform today, nowadays fronted by original bassist John Patterson (aka Johnny Pat).|
"I Count The Tears" is of course a cover of The Drifters' track. And very good it is too.

|The Small Four|
A: One Up On Me
B: I'll Find Him
|They were from Hull and they were actually named The Small Four because originally there were only three of them (one of whom was Johnny Patterson from The Aces). They then added John Small (of The Fabians and Johnny Small And The Little People) to their number, purely by coincidence. The Small Four supported Jimi Hendrix when he played at the Skyline Ballroom in Hull, in 1967.|
