Back in the early 1990s Anthony Head came into the shop with a list of his CD collection. They had been stolen in a burglary at his flat down the road. It was the usually terrible stuff - Eagles, Dire Straits, U2, etc. Back then, in pre-Buffy days, he was best known as the male half of an intensely irritating television coffee advert couple. He'd also been in a revival of the Rocky Horror Show and released a single from it. I don't know if he ever got his CDs back but we helpfully stuck a copy of his record sleeve up behind the counter with a "Stop Thief!" speech bubble drawn coming out of his mouth.
Behind the counterculture is a recurring series of celebrity encounters or near encounters in or close to a West London used book and record store.
This is the last in the online series of "Behind the counterculture". The full set including many previously unrecorded episodes will appear as a stocking filler sized book in time for Christmas. We plan ahead.
