Vini Reilly personal items for sale 
Vini Reilly is reluctantly selling a few items, some of which are quite unique with provenance, to finance his new audio-visual autobiographical album which will come out in spring/summer 2011, reports Phil Cleaver on kookydisc.co.uk.

The items for sale are as follows:-

1. ROLEX - OYSTER PERPETUAL 3/4-SIZE STAINLESS STEEL WATCH

This has been owned from new by Vini and is in fine working order. Also it has recently been serviced by a Rolex dealer.

He bought it over fifteen years ago having being inspired to do so after meeting Tim Page who is an English photojournalist who made his name during the Vietnam War. Having being blown up several times the first thing he bought with his royalties was a Rolex Perpetual. Vini followed suit.

It originally cost over £2000.00 and serious offers only will be considered.

PLEASE NOTE IT IS A 3/4 SIZE.


2. BOSS BR8 DIGITAL RECORDING STUDIO

Vini has used this on several albums since he purchased it in 1999. At the time it was one of the best home recording portastudios on the market. It has been used to produce not only several demos but also finished album tracks.

More technical specifications are readily available on the internet but I shall try and answer specific questions too.

Vini has a couple of unreleased tracks on the recorder and he is happy to record a couple more unique pieces for those who are interested.


3. GRADO STATEMENT SERIES GS1000 – AUDIOPHILE HEADPHONES

"The 'Rolls Royce' of headphones."

John Grado makes the most sublime headphones and these are rated 5/5 everywhere.

'beautiful, comfortable, crystal clear, wider soundstage with tight bass'

'These cans offer uncompromising fidelity. It's surprising how much more there is on most recordings'

Such quality commands them to be just under £1000.00 new. They are less than three months old, in 'like new' condition. All packaging etc is present.

There are also a couple of microphones which will be sold with the BR8 – an SM57 and a Sony ECM99 Digital Mic.

FAC 51 The Hacienda
The Names

Post punk cult band The Names emerged in the winter of 1977-1978 as The Passengers, gathering immediate attention on the local Brussels scene. In 1979, after a series of successful gigs and a crucial step forward opening for Magazine, they recorded their first E.P. ("Spectators Of Life") and attracted the interest of prominent label Factory Records in Manchester.

Their first British studio session (at Stockport's Strawberry Studio) produced the single "Nightshift" / "I Wish I Could Speak Your Language (Fac 29). Receiving enthusiastic reviews in the UK and abroad, it marked the start of a long and fruitful collaboration with producer Martin Hannett. The album "Swimming" followed as well as more singles, including "Calcutta" and "The Astronaut".
