New website 1AD (After Defection)

Things have now settled down regarding the website and the way it works, mainly thanks to my website guru Tony (, who is basically the brains behind anything on what a website does!
Cheers fella! (More beers are owed!)

We’ve now passed a year on the new website and we hope you find it more easier and less clunky. We’ve just got to sort out images and new gradings for the vinyl albums listings and then we’re up to date. If you are interested in any vinyl albums, please contact us before purchasing and we will update gradings, photos and prices asap for you.

Johnny Goggles Music is hitting 10 years old this December.
Bloody hell! It’s been a struggle-and at times downright disheartening (mainly because of the website versions of old and all the problems we were presented by certain persons, who have to remain nameless-unfortunately). But as a learning curve, you need major cock-ups to bounce up and improve, so…

We’ve got to know many old JGM customers from over the years, and it’s always great to chat, whether by phone, email, twitter or text. Football is, of course a favourite subject, as well as travel (two of my personal “get away from it all” past times). Some will know I’m a FC Barcelona supporter (as in ACTUALLY goes to games!) Been going for over 20 years. Not just to Barcelona, but all over Spain and Europe. I’m also a “soci” (a paid up member of the club). And yes! I was there when Van Gaal (groan…) was manager, so it wasn’t always smelling of success and beautiful football!

I also have a passion for Berlin. Easily my favourite city and chill out place to be. Go as much as I can. You can blame the Champions League final 2015 for that when it was Barca v Juventus. And for going to gigs there, it’s a great place to visit.
The beer ain’t bad either!

Anyway, enough waffle.
Enjoy the summer!

Thanks for finding the all new shiny Johnny Goggles Music store..with a heavy overdose of sugar, whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles!

Everything in the background is all a bit new here, so please bear with us while we slowly get used to how things work.
Lots of buttons..scary stuff.
But it’s nice to be finally free of a lot of restraints the old duffer of a website we once had, as well as other things/shysters.
And definitely more stable and reliable! (25 confirmation emails in 10 mins anyone?!!)
What a nightmare..(sorry again for those who were affected-We still can’t sleep well after those moments..shudder!)

Apologies also for some of the pretty awful images attached to some product pages and erratic text in the descriptions . We had a wee spot of bother with some data transferring..or something else a way bit too technical to understand!
We’re on the long road to slowly making sure all product pages have multi images (A-Z), but if there are any items you see and want to see better images soonish, drop us an email and we’ll fix them asap for you.

Any comments or suggestions, please get in touch at

Time for that promised coffee..
