Ella Doran has designed some ace new placemats and coasters for vinyl freaks like me featuring a series of portable vintage record players. We had a launch night last night where I got to play some of my favourite 45's such as Cozy Powell's drumtastic 'And Then There Was Skin', The Bobby Fuller Four's 'Let Her Dance' and Bettye Swann's 'My Heart is Closed For The Season' which was just enough to prompt Rob Ryan to come sniffing around my rares. I really should start playing records out again.
The placemats are available here and they're great. I should know - I have to make them with my own bare hands.
