A MAN who thinks vinyl records are now too mainstream has decided to become obsessive about compact discs instead.
Tom Logan was gutted by vinyl sales reaching a record high last year as he is no longer part of an elite group who think listening to fuzzy music on giant unwieldy discs is cool.
Logan said: “If I’m honest I like being a massive snob more than I like music. So it won’t be hard for me to ditch records in favour of obsessing about a first edition of ‘Brothers In Arms’ instead.
“It’s essentially still a brittle circle in a holder with a picture on the front that sounds worse than an MP3 and takes up a lot more space, so I’m confident I can be a twat about them as well.
“I’ll bore people rigid by going on about laser tracking and sound quality. It’ll be worse than when I used to show them my anti-static brushes.
“I’ll also talk a load of sh*te about participating in the ‘wonderful ritual’ of placing the disc in the player and carefully pressing play.
“People will think I’m a real w*nker. It’s going to be great.”
