I don’t think I could like a record that I wouldn’t be prepared to put on in front of my hippest and most intolerant friends. As a kiddie, I used to find a really hip LP and take it into town two or three times (in the old yellow Nottingham Selectadisc bags, natch) so that anyone I ran into would be able to see the LP that I ‘just bought’.Despite this tendency, Paulie still completed the DID meme and probably gave as fair a reflection of his taste as any of us have done. But what he goes on to suggest is this:
White Light White Heat and The Human League’s Reproduction are two LPs that I recall doing this with.
Perhaps [this] would be a better task for Rullsenberg to be demanding of us?So come on guyrs, fess up those albums that you actually don't like that much, but which you have flaunted to acquire kudos from your mates.
Eight LPs that the reflected glory of owning them eclipsed the pleasure of actually listening to them.
You know you have...
