When I was 15 I heard the screeching of brakes belting out of the radio on the way home from a school football game in Carluke. The intro to Gangsters by The Specials fair caught my attention I can tell you. The 2-Tone explosion which followed saw me rushing out to the record shop with every new release by one of the bands involved in the scene. I didn’t see it as starting a collection but that’s what it was, diversifying later of course. Modest perhaps by some standards, I wouldn’t class myself a serious vinyl collector but if I like a song I try to find the vinyl version.
