words from Joel


Joel: Vinyl records have always played a big role in my musical life. When I was a young child growing up in suburban Sydney, I was entranced by the records my parents had in their house - great 60s and 70s pop and rock artists. I loved the feel and texture of the record sleeves and the oversize nature of them... and of course the amazing music. I started to add to their collection by foraging through Sydney's charity stores, picking up lots of gems along the way, albeit dog-eared and well worn. Sitting by myself and spinning a classic lp was a beautiful refuge in a sun and sports-obsessed culture which I didn't feel completely connected to as a teenager.

A lifetime or two later, I'm now based in London where I write and record my music and from where I launch my UK and European tours. My folk's vinyl collection, hugely bolstered by my tatty charity finds is long gone: I needed the money years ago and they were never going to make it all the way to London. But a few years ago when I stopped roaming the great flatshares of London and felt somewhat settled here, I started to amass a vinyl collection again. But with London floorspace being at the premium it is, this time I'm very selective about the records I choose - only my favourite artists and sounds. No chaff, no scratched vinyl and no tatty, sellotaped covers. I want to write 'No ABBA' too but then I'd be lying, I still love and respect them in small doses. I love that my own personal copy of The Golden Age can sit proudly in this small but perfectly formed collection and I would be thrilled if it finds it's way into other people's equally selective collections.
