I think it’s fair to say that October 2021 has so far been a bit of a momentous month for Music In the Attic…
Firstly the Instagram page hit 700 followers at the start of the month, a milestone which would have surpassed all my expectations when I started this little ‘lockdown project’ in 2020. The gig tickets and other music memorabilia posted on there have become hugely popular with followers from all over the globe. It’s been great watching that community grow over the past few months and, at the time of writing it looks like we may just hit the 800 milestone by the end of October. If you haven’t already done so come and join the party over HERE or tell your mates to!
Talking of Instagram, another record was broken in October when one of my posts on there got over 300 likes. The post in question contained a photograph of a Guns N Roses ticket stub from Rock City, Nottingham in 1987 – ironically for a gig I didn’t even go to (I went to the pub instead!) but clearly it made for a great story. Oh, and it may have been given a boost by the support band that night, Faster Pussycat who shared it on their own Instagram feed to their 13,000+ followers! Lovely – cheers guys 🙂 Full story HERE:
Finally (and this is the really crazy bit!)…..
Earlier this month I received a message from a film producer in the United States who had stumbled across this website while researching material for a documentary he is making and he wanted to interview me about one of the stories featured here on Music In the Attic! At first I thought it was a prank but, after doing some research I realised that ‘Randy’ was genuine and wanted to get my first-hand account of a particular event I had attended back in the day. After agreeing to be interviewed he is now sending a film crew round to our house in December to record it! I’m not yet sure when I will be making my big screen debut but naturally I will share any updates I am allowed to via this site and on the social media channels.
Thanks for your continued support for Music In the Attic and for all your participation on the social sites. It really does make it all worth while! Over the next few weeks and months I’m going to be blowing the dust off some of my old vinyl records and cassette tapes. It’s about time I got them all catalogued and valued on Discogs! I may even treat myself to a turntable at some point. Watch this space!
