Ahead of tonight's (FREE) Strictly Vinyl 003 party at The Cliff Dive, we caught up with our very special guest Sampology to chat about his record collection and why 70's porn soundtracks make the sexiest vinyl covers...
How many records do you have in your collection?
Somewhere between 4,000 and 5,000
Oldest record in your collection?
No idea, it'd probably be 1950s/60s I'd imagine. I've got some old 78s somewhere with traditional Chinese music that'd be old..
Newest record in your collection?
Bala - Mr ASSISTER - 1800 Dinosaur
Most expensive record in your collection?
I have no idea what the most amount I've dropped on one record is, I'm sure there's some expensive piece through my collection though.
Which record would you NEVER sell?
Pretty much all of my records to be honest, I found a Bollywood cover of 'Wordy Rappington' - Tom Tom Club that rivals the original in both funk and production value I'd never let go.
What’s the sexiest cover in the collection?
A 70s German porn soundtrack with a voluptuous blonde on the cover that's pretty interesting..
Where do you buy your records from?
Record Stores, Discogs, wherever! I try and spend money when I'm in places of the world I wouldn't normally go to so I can pick up things that are either undervalued or unique to that area.
What’s your fave store in Sydney?
I haven't actually shopped in Sydney as much as I'd like to for some reason, so I'm not the man to ask. But I've found some things at The Record Store and Egg, plus one time I found some Greensleeves Reggae albums in a barber shop in Darlinghurst.
What’s on your slip matts at home?
Custom made mats with close ups of Margaret & David from 'At The Movies’. (Margaret's face on the left, David's on the right)
