Love from James

James Lavelle (UNKLE) made his 2nd DJ appearance in Bristol this year at the Tube last night. As anyone who knows me, knows I love UNKLE vinyl and found this opportunity to ask him to sign one of his pointman toys.

I met him briefly at a vinyl toy exhibition in Paris a couple of years back, only to be thwarted by a shonky pen. Upon meeting him on this occasion, I asked him (in a packed out club night) if he would be doing anymore toys, his answer was, I only did it as a favour for 'D' (Rob 3D from Massive Attack). I think a case of cross wires.

I was quite touched he wrote 'love from', maybe he'd been writing a lot of Christmas cards that evening.
