About me

Location United States
Introduction I am a 30-something guy obsessed with club/dance music of the 80s and early 90s. I've been active in the online music scene in one way or another since I ran a BBS dedicated to music back in 1992. I am an avid collector of both vinyl and compact disc formats (though my taste tends to skew towards the digital fidelity of CD) and still drag myself to music shows as well as camp out on eBay to acquire new items. I know there are some gems that get released by current artists, but I have to be honest and say that I get much more excited when a beloved 80s artist re-releases and album with previously unavailable material than I could ever get over the new Interpol album. I also consider myself an audiophile, and while I think the MP3 format is great for previewing music, I wouldn't dare consider settling for a lossy digital facsimile when I could own the original recording.
