Since moving to Copenhagen, my records have really been given a new lease of life, which gives me no end of joy.
That’s partly because we finally have space in our new flat to display them properly, and have done so on some great Muuto modular shelves (that’s them below midway through construction, and me admiring the handy work). And it’s also partly because we have a lot of people round to the flat, in a way that never happened in London, so there’s always a reason to put a record on.
And where I find records has also changed slightly. Before I started writing this blog, I was lucky enough to get a ton of records from my sister-in-law Mette’s basement, and in a repeat of that, our friends Rikke and Jens gave me their old records last night. It’s an awesome haul, with a great mix of mint condition rock, jazz and pop from the 80s – Talking Heads and John Coltrane in the photo below are just the tip of the iceberg.
And my luck continued when my Mum visited last week and bought me some records for my birthday, from a store called Mint on Gammel Kongevej, the same road as Sound Station. The Sir Victor Uwaifo LP is playing in the shot below. Thanks Mum!
Now I just need to find time to listen to them all…
