During a recent visit to his mother’s north London home, NY-based expat DJ, art/publishing player and blogger DB Burkeman took the opportunity to recover some of the ephemera of his youth, including the items you see here.
Many struck a chord; we are approximately of the same vintage and have followed the same interests (though he more intensively in music). For sure we were at some of the same gigs – including Hawkwind’s final stands with Stacia at The Roundhouse in 1975 – and also have mutual acquaintances.
I was made up when out of the blue last week DB sent me one of the items he retrieved: a 1967 copy of the Gear Guide booklet (I have the repro issued by Old House a couple of years back).
For a full rundown of DB’s finds, read his post on dbdoesablog.com here.
