your first record

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

Everyone remembers buying their first record. It was usually something we look back on with embarrasment but at the time seemed so cool. Anyway, it wasn't so much about the music itself it was more a kind of rite of passage from child to teenager.

What was your first record? Be honest now...

    The 1st record i bought for myself just because i thought it was cool and the group looked cool on top of the pops was 'Requiem' by Slik 1975/6ish, Midge Ure was the singer and i thought they looked cool as, in US baseball gear 18 months later he was in the Rich Kids and they were brilliant a much underated band, great glamppopunk singles an early new wave supergroup with Glen Matlock[sex pistols],Midge Ure[Slik+sex pistols auditionee] Steve New R.I.P.[too many great bands to list] and Rusty Egan on drums and future key figure in the new romantic scene.I bought the slik album shortly after the singles and it wasn't great.

    I stood in the James Howell department store in Cardiff (still there of course) holding my record token and tried to make my mind up between I Can Take Or Leave Your Loving by Herman's Hermits or Mighty Quinn by Manfred Mann which having seen them on the Dee Time I was now edging towards. What is a boy to do? I would now so love to be able to boast that I made the more street credible choice but sadly I opted for the rather goofy Mr Noone and his cohorts. It cost eight shillings and sixpence and I still have it. Sunshine Girl too if I'm honest. In those days B sides were pretty darn good though so your money always felt well spent.

    I bought K-Tel 22 Dynamic Hits with such gems as Suzanne Beware of The Devil, Brandy, and Son of My Father on (first album) aged 11. First single was Devil Gate Drive by Suzi Quatro coz Alvin Stardust's My Coo Ca choo was sold out! Brilliant
