    I have discussed this phenomenon with many record nerds over the years and the stories get mixed up and the tales taller.

    Yes, Slap A Music, "the cut out king" was the Copenhagen import store. He did business with a Swedish guy who turned out to be rather shady.

    My missus is Finnish and I live here now, escaped Brexit with my family so my son can be bilingual etc.

    Not been to the air guitar, bog soccer or wife carrying competitions yet.
