The author

Matt Anniss is a freelance writer and has built his career around his passion for electronic music and club culture. He's been involved in the music industry in some capacity - as a DJ, mix-maker, event promoter, journalist, A&R consultant, occasional producer and even record label owner - since his student days in the late ’90s. He confesses to be a vinyl obsessive and owns many more records than any sane person should.

Patrick Fuller is a former journalist and editor who spent 20 years working with market-leading media brands such as What Car?, Autocar, PistonHeads, Stuff and What Hi-Fi? His extensive vinyl collection went missing shortly after he left home in 1987, only to turn up 15 years later in his brother’s friend’s attic, complete with 1,000 rock, pop, classical and dance records the Fuller family had mislaid over the years. Patrick created the Haynes Vinyl Manual with his brilliant co-author Matt Anniss and now plays his records on the beloved Technics SL1210s given to him by his wife Louise. His six children have given up complaining.
