Blog to the Oldskool Radio – April 14th 2015 (UK Trip Special)

At long last, here’s a recording of the last jungletrain radio show, featuring all records I bought while I was on a 2 week trip to the UK. I did a lot of blabbering during the show which I wasn’t crazy about (ID’ing tracks etc) so I did a hasty rerecord last week, and cut that down a bit more, chopping out a few sections so you get 49 tracks in 97 minutes.

Big thanks to everyone tuned in live and in the chat for this set!
As for the records: this was my first UK trip in 4 years, and unlike previous trips where I’ve had a ton of luck scrouging in stores, it seems like most stores either have wised up to online prices or a lot more people are out hunting for those records. So the bulk of what I bought was just cheap good records I’ve been meaning to buy for many years but never wanted to pay postage on before (1 pound record + 10 pounds postage, hrmmm). As a nice side effect of that, most of the tunes in this mix are quite easy to pick up if you dig them – it’s not a pure bargain bin selection, but definitely strongly tending towards that. Starts with a few 93 bits, quickly moves to 94-95, and I closed it out with a few 97/98 bits. One of the bets scores of the trip was the final track “Tripping On Technology” by The Invisible Man, which I Grabbed for 50p in an MVE bargain bin. Those bins are horribly picked through and reduced in size these days, so finding that one took some luck + effort!

  1. Excellent mix! I am surprised some of these were in the discount bin, some were pretty well known tracks and played quite a bit.

  2. Thanks, yeah honestly most of these weren’t in the bargain bin per-se, just regular cheap records in the jungle section of various stores. Lots of reasonably big press label stuff (back 2 basics etc) so even if they’re known tunes they were plentifully pressed so easy to find. Still, really good tunes and nice to be able to buy a 2 GBP tune without the 10GBP first record, 2-3GBP extra record crazy shipping costs.
