Jeremy was my best mate as a kid in 80-90s. He was / is a killer drummer. As we hit our teens our music taste diverged. Him; more rocky, me; towards emerging electronic and techno sounds.
His drum teacher appears on this Clan Analogue compilation and gave him a copy. It was too experimental and electronic for Jem so he gave it to me to check out. I loved it, and within a year or two was attending every Clan event I could get to.
Only 200 copies of this were pressed and this was the first record in my collection. It triggered three decades of record collecting.
I’m sure Jeremy’s drum teacher has no idea that his act of generosity led to a complete stranger’s lifelong love affair with vinyl.
Thanks to Jem and his drum teacher.
