yep... i have had 3 copies (yes 3) of G Dubs 'tink ya bad' gone walkies! and single copies of tink ya bad are hard to come by!

one was at a house party, i left the decks telling the fella after me to put it in my bag... cheeky fuck put it straight in his!

the second one i actually stole off one of my mates (he he)... and then promptly lost it..

and the third copy went missing during a field rave...

Not personally stolen but I remember one night down the end @ a hardware night i think someone took the vinyl off the platter and it disappeared. Obviously the mc was like hang on a minute who ever did that hand it back now, the dj needs his tools. Cant remember who was on the decks but he didnt look impressed. im sure the boloke got a beating after!

3 copies! That's deep.....well I guess you only got one nicked really. As the third one getting nicked was karma for you nicking the 2nd copy lol!

All my mates that DJ are always walking out of parties etc with each others' vinyls but I guess they're lucky they're all mates....If next pplz were DJ'in then I guess they'd be watching them like hawks....

heard of another dj who has his whole BOX stolen from hi car at a gig, after he played. 'kin wounded!

had a few plates go missing over the years, not to theft. more down to not putting them back in the proper places, or just leaving them on the decks or something. going b2b with people sometimes things can get easily muddled up...

I've not lost vinyl at a house party I've been to... but I've lost some sleeves which is weird...

Guess I should be grateful it wasn't the vinyl that went walkies ;D

If someone picked them up - I hope they were disappointed to find nothing in them lol..

P.I.S.S.D!

I think this one's winning so far...

crew mate of mine had his entire bag stolen out his car after a gig. He plays alot of old skool jungle and has been collecting/djing since 94. All kinds of original pressing in it that he will never be able to replace. Happened almost a year ago and he's still sick about it.
