I, LUDICROUS > Discography

Many of these superb gramophone records are, alas, no longer generally available and most often to be found under the 'rarities' sections of specialist collectors' catalogues. Some of the more recent releases can still be purchased - but rush, numbers are limited! Check out the merchandise page to see what John's got left in his loft.
