Just curious if you big shots collect any other artist/band/group besides SP, or is it SP only? :?

Plain curiosity.

I have all cd releases of 1 other band: Reboelje. Around 30 cm of cds. I can understand nobody knows them, it’s a Frisian rock/theatre conceptual band that split up a few years ago, unfortunately. They played gigs and theatre shows for more then 15 years, I have seen them many times. The most awesome show I saw was in 1995: \"De Brulloft, It Ferhaal Fan ‘N Branmerke Famke\" (The wedding, or: the story of a stigmatized girl). I will never forget 1 haunting rocksong in that show that was about the moment when the father took sexual advantage of his young daughter, brrrr… :cry: Cool anecdotes also: when 1 rare old cd single was not available anymore, the now ex-manager of the band made a special copy of his own for me. Awesome.

This was 1 of the concerts I attended, back in 2002.

if i like a band, i will often switch to \"collecting mode\" for a bit. this usually means trying to get all their albums, and sometimes a single or an ep here and there. at that moment it’s proper collecting. trying to collect it all. it doesn’t matter if they’ve made one bad album, i’m also going to get it.

i’ve done this for many bands. sometimes i also buy promos, and albums and singles on vinyl. but it’s never as bad as with the pumpkins.

a couple of examples of bands i have at least all the albums:
pixies
david bowie
joy division
yeah yeah yeahs
deus
the beatles
dinosaur jr
the breeders
elliott smith
raconteurs (also collecting their 7\" singles)
the chemical brothers
daft punk
grandaddy
my morning jacket
arcade fire

i’m still working on my bob dylan collection.
and i’m sure there are many more i haven’t thought about.

add to that all albums/EPs by Lovedrug and Jakob, mainly digital versions though, due to lack of space, due to all my other CDs!
