Wants List 01 - A Tribute to Paul Williams

In the days before the Internet people used to write to each other and if you were into noise you usually had a ‘wants list’ tagged on to the end of your letter. This list would contain a number of highly sought after noise items that, if you were lucky, would be sat on someone’s shelf awaiting a buyer. You.

In the days before the Internet I used to correspond with a chap in Wolverhampton called Paul Williams. Paul had a wicked sense of humour which belied his ill health. He used to listen to lots of noise releases as way of catharsis, most of which he taped for me, far more than I could ever physically listen to. And then one day the letters stopped arriving. To my eternal shame I’m sad to say I didn’t have the nerve to write to his address to find out what had happened to him.

On Saturday at the Crater Lake festival I passed his tapes on to the Filthy Turd. I passed a lot of tapes on to the Filthy Turd. In fact I passed on about 90% of all my tapes to the Filthy Turd. I no longer listened to them. He’ll recycle them and someone will listen to them and get enjoyment out of them which is a far better life for them than sitting in a box going moldy.

Paul Williams used to tag on spoof wants lists to the end of his letters. I used to print them off when I did the paper zine but during the recent clear out I cam across his correspondence and decided that these wants lists needed reprinting. Here for your delectation then is a Paul Williams wants lists. More to follow.

‘Any fake lists should be given an air of authenticity with the application of tea/coffee spills, cup rings and manic pencil marginalia about ‘condition ‘m-vg+’, ‘ltd ed’, ‘col vin’ etc, etc…..’
