We spoke to Instagram follower @os_a_mendoza about his audio equipment, record collection and his favourite album




When did you start collecting records?

I officially started to collect LPs about 3 to 4 years ago, but since I was about 12 I was so passionate about music, I kept listening to my albums over and over again. I remember collecting my pocket money at school to buy CD’s so I could discover new artists.

What's your favourite record?

I don’t have a favourite, but David Bowie’s “Young Americans”, Duran Duran’s “Notorious”, RHCP’s “Blood Sugar Sex Magic” and the AMAZING Coldplay’s “Parachutes” feature in my favourite list! 

Who is your favourite band?

Again, I don’t have a favourite in particular. There are several albums I listen to time after time from artists such as Phoenix, AC/DC, Eagles, The Cure, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Arctic Monkeys, the list never ends. 



What's your favourite music based magazine?

I am not fond of music magazines. I believe it’s better to form your opinion by listening to each album. Every now and then, I like to turn the radio on to change the rhythms I am used to and try to discover something new.
