…a little something I jammed out whilst taking a pre-shop-close break…

…seed planted by Scotty…who talked murals then never got back….

…Scotty, phone home.

…(shit…not much brain space for drawing or posting at the moment…whoda thought telling everyone you’re closing their favourite record shop would cause soooo much chaos…thank the little baby Jesus it’s not  Christmas any time soon….)

…(stamp collection seems to end in 1976 with the Xmas issue of that year…I would’ve been 13/14…mmm….records…..).

…(really in love with that 4 colour ballpoint pen…it’s so messy!).

Can I Have A Stamp

…we used to ask that of shop keepers, bank tellers and dental nurses when we were kids…

…not only was it free “stuff”…

…it was cool to have your ink on your skin…

…we like to accommodate kids at Too Tone Records…

…they’re an integral part of the music buying public……

…and yes kids, Tony will give you a stamp…

…(big thank you to my nephews Zac & Jo, without whose arms this post would not be possible….

…and to my good friend Dee, whose idea it really was).
