Record Bags (for life)

So you've plumped up the courage to have a go on the decks at Closet Vinyl.  Next It's time to hunt down your old classic vinyl ("I'm pretty sure it's in the loft!") and have a sift through and pick out twenty of the best.  Now, at this stage, most people will play it safe.  After all, who wants to show off their best records as people are scrambling for door.
But no, you were pretty cool back in the day and your music taste was always on point.  "They will love my collection of Barry Manilow live from Vegas".

Right, set sorted and it's time to head out, but wait... how do you transport your wonderful collection to the event?
Now this is where things get tricky.  Forget about what you're going to wear (you always wear the same thing anyway).  Worry not about your hair (after 2 minutes on the decks you'll headbanging like Angus from AC/DC and your hair will be all over the show).  You don't even need to stress about which order to play your songs.  No, the real dilemma here is, Tesco's bag for life, rucksack or that free cloth bag you got from that conference at ExCel?

Choose wisely, for there is a camera about... www.closetvinyl.com/bags
Some people get all professional and buy themselves a record box.  But that's just showing off (actually it's the best way to preserve your records... Intense Records in Chelmsford can help you out... http://www.intenserecords.co.uk/shop.php?type=Record%20Box)

Whatever you choose to carry your vinyl, remember this...  Everyone has a record bag, they just don't know it yet.

Now it's up to you... Closet Vinyl are at the Northcote Arms, first Saturday of every month and Bar One Twenty, third Friday of the month.  Time to find your vinyl and come to an event.  

See you behind the decks
