I found an original bum’s rush for 20 quid just last year. I was having kittens!
Also getting the red sleeve uk version of Sanity which my mate who ran a record stall found for me. Rare as hen’s teeth.

> Best ever memory of KJ is hard to choose. Maybe seeing them do a soundcheck in 1989 (you've all heard the story, probably several times). Maybe listening to the 7" of Love Like Blood for the first time. Maybe the visceral sense of a band re-born when Extremities came out. Maybe seeing Youth on stage with them for the first time (for me) on the Pandemonium tour. Maybe that sweaty gig at the Underworld after years of drought. Or Astoria 1991: "This is for everyone who's gonna die in the Gulf. Waaaaardance!"

> First gig/awesome gigs will always be special, of course, but I think I was happiest when I was just starting to get into them and picking up all those non-albums tracks etc. at records fairs. There was no internet so it was just records shops/fairs and Record Collector magazine. Buying a single or 12", taking it home, and hearing those tracks for the first time. Hard to pick one out but possibly Ha! if I had to. That may not seem rare to us now but back then it was like finding treasure.
