Jordy Bossier loves hardcore. My dude lives in Belgium, where he works at Van Marcke, a plumbing supply distribution company. But back to that whole hardcore thing! A fellow dad, Jordy is always on the hunt for wax and he's the lastest victim of the Record Collector series.
How long have you been collecting records?
I started with hardcore vinyl in 2009, before that I only got Manowar, because they always had the best cover art!
Where/how do you usually find your records these days?
Discogs and Instagram. Sadly, Belgium doesn't have any good shops left.
What is the most you paid for a single record, where/how did you obtain it, and what was it?
My first Chung King Can Suck It, which I got from Kurt Wilson. I'll never forget the feeling when I first got to hold that one after it being stuck at Customs for 3 weeks at Christmastime. It was a nightmare! I won't mention the price out of respect, from collector to collector. [He's since sold his copy]
If you had to pick one record label you feel had/has the best track record of quality releases, who would that be and what are some key titles you love?
No doubt of that being Revelation Records, of course . The Lower East Side Crew E.P. , Together compilation, and Start Today are some of the best hardcore classics of all time.
Of everything in your current collection, what is your most prized record and why?
That would either be the Gorilla Biscuits EP or Kickback’s Cornered LP.
Is there anything that frustrates you about the current record collecting scene?
Not at all, time’s change, and so does collecting.
Which records are still on your want list that you've had a tough time tracking down through the years?
- Kickback, Cornered (test press)
- Warzone, Lower East Crew E.P. (first press test)
- Misfits, Earth A.D. (clear and green vinyl)
