    Silvertone aka. Big Six / Six Vicious / Sixtoo / handful of stupid graffiti makes. Birthname : Broke Ass Rob.

    Former/Current : Sebutone, Vinyl Money, 1200 Hobo, Homewrecker, Thief, Achoholic, Fugitive.

    Location ; Montreal, Canada. Age: 31. Years making records? many.

    Part Time Hustles : Instrumental Hiphop Hustle, LP mastering, wannabe filmmaker and makeshift anything visual, neighborhood artstar, coffee and weed constructive critic.

    Like: rare records with tough ass drums, tattoos, tube microphones, vintage instruments, rusto silvers, american freight trains and literature, film (french new wave, japanese gangster flicks, 80's coke movies esp. Jim Jarmush) Design Books and original Bauhaus furniture (no home).

    Dislike : exploitive throwback culture aligned with bougie fasion bullshit (eg. new dogtown flick, electroclash, most modern rock groups that have a synth).

    Records : couple hundred, but I'm back in records mode, so its growing once again.

    Sold The Collection: couple of times.

    Current Listen: Exclusively Sun Ra - Sleeping Beauty and Lanquidity.

    --

    I know a few doods on here personally, am easy to trade with and like good music on any format, but prefer wax. Greeto.

    --

    www.bullyrecords.com -- I do artwork and mastering for these guys.

    www.monoheat.com -- you need a record mastered and have heat to trade.

    www.sixtoo.net -- in need of an overhaul.

    www.ninjatune.net -- these guys put out some of my stuff.

    It's interesting to see that a lot of you guys are a good 5 or so years older than I thought you were.

    The WWW has a way of making everyone sound like a teen It's like being stuck in adolescent quicksand. Now I think I'll put on "If I Were Only A Child Again" by Curtis Mayfield (happy b-day).

    Real World Name Tryggvi.

    I hail from Iceland and Denmark summers.

    21 years old. Will be 22 in Decembre.

    Buying vinyl for 8+ years now. Have yet to become "serious". Don't think I ever will really.

    Collection is between 1000-1500.

    I was a garbage dude but am now inbetween jobs. Had to stop due to my left ankle. Damn you. I make some beats from time to time and I drink.

    Currently listening to Helmut Zacharias Orchestra - Ferry Boat Serenade, which is a lovely little easy listening/moody jam. Perfect for hazy summer mornings. Next up is Os Mutantes - O Rel??gio.

    I dig just about any good music. It just has to be good.

    I like smart and beautiful women. I also like straight-forward funny dudes.

    I don't have a favourite book yet. I do have a favourite "band" though, and their name is Autechre. They are fucking good musicians.

    There is a dude outside watering grass. He has been watering the same spot for about 30 minutes now. Hero.

    Overall I think soulstrut is a slam. dunk. place.
