By pure coincidence and some rather uncanny timing, I saw this post earlier in the week. I can't really remember how long it has been, but it feels like it must be somewhere in the region of 12 years or so, maybe more, since I was last here and actively taking part. I have changed and forgotten various details since then, so I decided to just sign up again to see what happens as some kind of crazy "OldskoolPie - The Reunion" situation. I hope you manage to find enough oldskool former-regulars from back in the day to make it happen.
I only joined this forum 4 years ago, so am doing catch up. I knew nothing of Discogs, I did not know you could buy old house records or buy old house tapes I was on here about a year before that pennine dropped.
Were most of the people on here have collected all their records and sold their record collection on and sold of their tape collection, i guess that's why am only one of the few who regularly post on here.
I know some people never sell their stuff and still collect records.
It's probably a bit tricky at the moment to be doing much. There's also still a lot of people who have gone AWOL from "back in't day".
Ps, James, I have to get this off my chest as it's been queitly nagging at me for years.....you probably won't have a clue what I'm on about, but still, sorry about the way things ended up with the remix of Blurred all those years ago. I had people bending my ear too much, I should have handled things better and I apologise for making various assumptions and presumptions about it and yourself at the time. You live and learn, I guess.
(Still, that mockney accent on the remix acapella I'd have had to use on the track was shocking and didn't suit it at all! )
Anyway, it was all so ancient it seems like it all happened in a previous life or to somebody else!
I hope the re-vamp here brings a few more of the old crew back now and again.
