URGENT Donations & Tickets - Lopwell 2024

                 **This may hurt a little but it's for your own good.** 

We need your bastard donations for the Lopwell raffle. You may imagine by remaining anonymous and or keeping schtum this does not apply to you - It does, it very much applies to you.

Here you are reading this fine forum that asks so little from you (Other than tolerance and bad taste) The reality is every penny raised in the raffle goes to running this shit show.

Imagine a life where this care in the middle aged hifi community disappeared. Where would you go? What would you do? Stop crying - THERE IS A SOLUTION ! Donate, be a winner not a wiener damn it all!.

So far the prizes are sadly looking above adequate:

I offered a sealed copy of The Smile A light for Attracting attention. Let me know where to send it or I can just post direct to the winner if preferred. Saves a bit of carbon if it only needs to be posted once.


Are you reading this and thinking err I can’t be assed, fuck them, fuck that, I don’t need to, it’s a load of wank? All fine meatman thoughts when observing the world and it’s inhabitants but counter productive in this case. This directly effects you if you value this khazi. Unity of spirit pulled this thing together and it needs feeding - Listen to your guilt is is your guide.

You do have stuff in ‘that drawer’, you do have records you bought and thought ‘not quite my bag’ you do have man toys lying idle and unmolested. you do have stuff you’ve been meaning to sell but can’t quite be assed - Send them in to bask in the warm glow of philanthropy.


Hold my beer,

Daryl Hall and John Oates. All cleaned on the @Spider ultrasonic cleaner, in anti static sleeve and in good to vg nick.

Daryl Hall - John Oaks 1975
Beauty on a Back Street 1977
Private Eyes 1981
H2O 1982

Postage included to one address
