7 Days, 7 Questions: Day 5

Let’s explore some of this passion we have for music. All this week I’ll be asking some questions, sharing my thoughts and, hopefully, hearing from you!

What piece of music did you own (album, single, vinyl, cd or any other media) that you no longer have that you wish you still had? I think that made sense! Your feelings of loss can be memory or collectibility or whatever! I can only post the single here because, for the life of me, I cannot find a picture of the packaging I had

I’m sure most of you know or knew Gary Numan (he of “Cars” fame). I still follow him and he’s still making amazing music. This particular song was a collaboration with Bill Sharpe. This 12″ single called “Change Your Mind” was something I cherished and would pull out to surprise the odd music aficionado who would cross paths. I still love the song. It was something that got radio play but for whatever reason stuck to me. When I lost the last of vinyl in a basement flood, I was devastated.

So how about you?

    Bit of a stretch, but I think my story fits the sentiment.

    I was born in ’82, and only became (hugely) ‘musically aware’ around 1995. I got hugely into a piles of bands. My favourite though was Ned’s Atomic Dustbin. Maybe didn’t get to them until 1996 … point being, I basically just missed them the first time around.

    I would regularly visit HMV at Yonge & Dundas — fucking Mecca. And they had vinyl of Ned’s final album, BrainBloodVolume marked down to like $8 … but who needs fucking vinyl??. PFFT RECORDS AM I RIGHT?I? (1996!)

    Also saw some used 7″ singles at Vortex Records from time to time. That BBV album was there for months if not years though, and it never occurred to me that I should grab it.

    Now 20+ years later I’m an adult with a great record player and sound system in the den … and almost no Ned’s on vinyl. What an idiot I was! I fucking love that album!!!
