Well I seem to have put the cat among the pigeons here.

Silas, yes I have spoken to Bill. Our interviews are lengthy and ongoing and will be the backbone of the book. They turn up really unexpected snippets. I didn't know, for example, that the address on all the old Topic Records - 27 Nassington Road, London, NW3 - was also home to Ivor Cutler.

So are the LPs Bulmer sells on eBay as 'yourpricemusic' originals or repressings? Originals presumably although stocks must be running low of the more popular items (Nic Jones, Bright Phoebus), and he does own a pressing plant, I believe. So why does he categorise them as 'new'?

Oh dear! I chanced to hear a minute (all that I could bear) of Surface by Cathy Lesurf. Can we lay that crime at his door too?
