The world was my appetiser
I turned gangs into fertiliser

My sister had to deal with his income tax file when he lived in Gwent.

 

As he was declared bankrupt, I don't suppose the Inland Revenue got much joy!

IIRC Jake developed stage fright/performance anxiety and he didn't really like the show business world and he started to perform little in the 80s which wouldn't have helped with generating income! He also liked the demon drink a bit too much.

Rega Exact, so still on MM rather than MC. However, the smaller fine-line stylus is a good improvement and it all sounds much better. 

 

The turntable's had a few upgrades over the last couple of years too, with new bearing, subplatter, platter, mat and isolation feet. I haven't done anything to the tonearm yet, as rewiring looks a fiddly job.

Just installed the Origin Live counterweight stub structural modification. Not a lot left of the original turntable now, but by golly it sounds superb!

 

First up on the platter, Frank Zappa - The Grand Wazoo.

Nope, I have the Isokinetic upgrade with ceramic bearing.

I thought it sounded more like a hip replacement.
