Bookmarks: Some stuff to read on the internet

Mickey Bradley joins BBC News in celebrating the 30th anniversary of Teenage Kicks:

The Good Vibrations record label didn't have a sleeve-making department.

In fact, it didn't have any departments, it was just Terri in his shop.

So when he rang us a few weeks later to say the records had arrived, he really meant we had to go up to his shop and help with the sleeves.

That process involved folding a printed A4 sheet around the record.

I still have memories of us on our knees in the back of Terri's shop, with a pile of singles and a pile of unfolded sleeves.
