An epic tale of wax reunited with its owners after ten years in the abyss

Bristol DJ duo, The Kelly Twins provide today’s heartwarming story with a vinyl collection, reunited with their owners after a 10-year game of Hide and Seek.

2011 is the year that sparked this epic tale of missing wax, after an 8-hour set at a local venue. The boys had packed their bags full of rare vinyl for the show. On return from the gig, the panic set in as they realised their record bag had vanished.

Speaking to the Bristol Post, Sean Kelly said: “We had cherry-picked our record collection for the choice cuts and that was the bag we lost so we were particularly gutted as it contained a lot of rare white labels which are hard to find.

“When we realised we’d lost it, we started to phone around cab companies, retraced our steps back to The Bell and called friends. We eventually had to accept they had gone for good. It still feels pretty fresh actually – it’s always really sad if you lose records as they cost money but also because they all have memories attached to them.”

In a tweet last week, the brothers revealed that the records had unbelievably turned up, 10 years after they disappeared into the abyss. An old friend got in touch to say he had found a bag of records in his garage!

“I got a call from my friend Vicaas, who I know from the Bristol scene, and he was at his cousin’s house in St Werburgh’s sorting out the garage,” Sean told the Bristol Post. “He came across this bag of records and had a look through them. Vicaas saw a Mary J. Blige record in the bag and thought there were only a certain number of DJs who would play that sort of thing including us.”

In a further, tear-jerking twist, the bag also contained a handcrafted drawing from his nephew, aged just one at the time.

Some of the lost records have been replaced in the years since. Sean is grateful to have been reunited with them and mused: “I can only assume that this was the taxi driver who took us home and he had obviously just put them in his garage for safe-keeping.

“The weirdest thing is that I’ve probably walked past that garage loads of times over the past ten years not realising my records were in there!”
