Oh man does this take me back. When I was an art student in 1980 there was a record shop on my way home with all the import singles from Britain on a big shelf in the front. Many places with import vinyl kept it bagged up behind the counter so you had to ask for it, but at this store you could paw through them to your heart's content, learning the names of new bands and studying the cover art. Even the ones I never heard helped form my impression of what was happening in the British music scene. Thanks for bringing back those memories.

(P.S.: that record store only just closed this past year!)

I bought most of those late '70s Pistols / Clash etc. singles years after the fact. I only really started getting into music from about 1980 onwards - I was a late developer :-)

The Oi / Street Punk and Anarcho-Punk stuff like Blitz and Conflict was something that I was into when I was about 14/15/16 but I can't say I listen to it too much nowadays. Ideal music for a wannabe teen rebel - loud and aggressive with plenty of gratuitous swearing...

But... at the same time I was also listening to the more poppy stuff like the Human League and bands like OMD and Heaven 17. A complete contrast.

I've also got tons of old Motown and Trojan Reggae singles but I didn't photograph them because most don't have picture sleeves and would have looked kind of dull...
