  • Useless ....the same old story.....save your money.

    That's a little harsh. Sure, the discography is imperfect, and there's nothing especially new in the feature. But what should we expect? It's a lot better than it could have been and is still notable to get such a substantial piece.

  • I thought the RC issue was interesting and well written. There are two pictures for the Pensylvanian Flickhouse shop burned vinyl. I know one was done by Anon but they must have created another one too.

    not sure want you mean... can you post the pictures here?

  • I'm also waiting for it ... looks like a nice issue. I do not expect tons of new revelations, though.


    I also have the Anon digipak-CD. Ordered it some years back from the German fanclub.. Nice one!

  • I will do second one again.

    Haha, that's funny! ^^

    Because this is the fake label which I once photoshopped for April fool's day in 2009 in both the official and in the German forum: Link



    Note the fingerprint. Seems I eventually fooled someone... 8o

  • Yes, your reply the other day was very cool! ;)

    The fact that Record Collector has now dug it up and considered it genuine does not cast a good light on this magazine...

  • LOL - well that’s ... cool somehow!

    On the other hand, it makes you wonder how they did their research. Jonathan Dann - did they get in touch with you about the Anon stuff before they published the article?

    I also would contact various fan sites ...

    Still a nice story anyway

  • I also have this issue of RC, but my knowledge of this era (regarding releases) didn’t make me think this could be fake.

    Great story indeed, made me laugh a bit. Not good for the reputation of the magazine, though...

  • I'm pretty sure if I hadn't posted this on April 1, every user would have been salivating profusely. But that would have been extremely dishonest, so I already knew that it would only work on those who didn't pay attention to the date.


    I had found a few photos of these acetate singles with the "Tony Pike" label a few weeks earlier while doing internet research on the studio, all quite small and only with poor resolution (and of course with completely different music on them). But I therefore had reason to believe that the Pennsylvania Flickhouse acetate, long known to exist, also had such a label. I had then emailed the operator of one of these websites and asked him, on some pretext, to send me a high-resolution version of his scan after all. So the only thing that is not genuine is the inscription.

    I can't remember the original, but it had enough letters to puzzle together "Pennsylvania Flickhouse" and "Anon". The fingerprint was also genuine.
