The modern mans burden = Email.

I want to thank you all for the masses of email coming in. Since this blog ain’t a full time occupation I don’t have the time to answer them all so don’t feel rejected. I do my best to keep up the pace.

To all of you who keeps asking for the article about the scumbag Guy Robert Archambue aka Rob Noxious it will come up pretty soon. In the meantime you can take a look at his funny bidding wars to keep the prices up:
thingsdogsdo(his new eBay ID after lewdsnot). His other eBay ID that he used to sell stuff through masking him self as Fahad Nabhan(a real person who’s identity he stole) is now amateur_gynecologist(old ID zoloft_anaconda). He use that once in awhile but haven’t sold anything in awhile. But thingsdogsdo have the oh so rare first Wipers(posted some weeks ago) up for sale: Daddys little toy. It could be yours for the small amount of $290. Keep in mind that it usually sells for slightly above $100 though.

    I bought a bunch of 45’s from Guy Robert directly in the early ’00s and I spoke with him on the phone a few times. He seemed like a pretty great dude and the records were fine and dandy. It’s interesting to hear about all of this shit, but if I were to form an opinion about him now, I’d say that I like the man. This article that has been mentioned sounds fun.

  3. The Flakes // Drummer says:

    He wasn’t in your house and you live in the US. The number of people who’ve been ripped off is ridiculous. Rob can be nice and funny but all he wants is to get into your pants and screw you hard. That’s a fact.

    I didn’t know he was a homosexual!

    I live in Germany. He was here and fooled me into a very bad trade. I say fuck that guy!!!!!

    Well, you wonder why I always dress in black,
    Why you never see bright colors on my back,
    And why does my appearance seem to have a somber tone.
    Well, there’s a reason for the things that I have on.

    I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down,
    Livin’ in the hopeless, hungry side of town,
    I wear it for the prisoner who has long paid for his crime,
    But is there because he’s a victim of the times.

    I wear the black for those who never read,
    Or listened to the words that Jesus said,
    About the road to happiness through love and charity,
    Why, you’d think He’s talking straight to you and me.

    Well, we’re doin’ mighty fine, I do suppose,
    In our streak of lightnin’ cars and fancy clothes,
    But just so we’re reminded of the ones who are held back,
    Up front there ought ‘a be a Man In Black.

    I wear it for the sick and lonely old,
    For the reckless ones whose bad trip left them cold,
    I wear the black in mournin’ for the lives that could have been,
    Each week we lose a hundred fine young men.

    And, I wear it for the thousands who have died,
    Believen’ that the Lord was on their side,
    I wear it for another hundred thousand who have died,
    Believen’ that we all were on their side.

    Well, there’s things that never will be right I know,
    And things need changin’ everywhere you go,
    But ’til we start to make a move to make a few things right,
    You’ll never see me wear a suit of white.

    Ah, I’d love to wear a rainbow every day,
    And tell the world that everything’s OK,
    But I’ll try to carry off a little darkness on my back,
    ‘Till things are brighter, I’m the Man In Black

    Tasty Treats

    Rob Noxious aka Rob Chambeau aka Roberto aka Guy Archembeault aka Guy aka Tony From Hawaii aka Surf Dude aka Mike and Ray E aka Mike and Ray Ern aka Mike and Ray Ernst aka Mike and Mary Lewdsnot aka Lewdsnot. The very name(s) send shivers down the spines of record collectors. He can smell vinyl from miles away. He will find you. He will hunt you down from his perch in Huntington Beach. He will trade want lists and pester you for every little scrap of vinyl you have.

    His pathology runs far deeper than your average scum, however. His preoccupation with identity or escaping it defies logic. When I first met him in 1986, he went by the name Rob Chambeau. He has morphed through the years into numerous personas, which the internet has further enabled him to do. It almost seems farcical. One collector met him at a record show and Rob introduced himself as “Joe” or something, then proceeded to introduce himself to the guy’s friend as a different name. He once reasoned that he used a fake name because he’s French and no one could pronounce his name.

    Another collector sold a few things to Lewdsnot on eBay. Lewdsnot’s “real” name was the Ernst brothers from a Huntington Beach P.O. box. Correspondence from the Ernst brothers professed familiarity with Rob, and went so far as to pass on a “hello” from Rob.
    The letter went on to talk about this little record trading cartel of a few people in Huntington (all his other alter egos?) who shared info and records, and even had meetings of some kind, even mentioning a girl was involved as one of the traders.

    “So I’m packing up the records and thinking how it looks like Rob’s writing, so I dig out a couple wants lists, and it’s really similar, but what really got me was all the little things he does that no one else does. He puts the return address in a triangle in the left corner and puts the “TO:” with stars and underlines. One of his writing personas tries to be cool, with various trademarks like “dig” (I dig xyz 7″), “tasty treat”, etc. “

    Rob also has an alter writing ego which is decidedly uncool. One collector characterized it as a Latka-from-Taxi-style English? One email from the Ern brothers went like this: “Yes, we would very much like to buy this wonderful punk/powerpop gem from you indeed. It would be very good and we send you money and thank you very much for any other fantastic vinyls you sell us please.” This letter emphatically underlined the “Ray and Mike”, like he’s really trying to convince somebody.

    Even his age is denied. For years after he turned 28, which was 12 years ago, he has told people that he is 28. Current estimate is that he was born in 1962. Rob’s want lists are legendary in both their depth and his ability to get them into anyone’s hands. More than one of us have been contacted by him out of the blue. My first contact with him was the night before the Gilman record swap in Berkeley back in 1986. He called me out of the blue and read off his want list over the phone. It was filled with advanced obscurities that I had never heard of such as Tazers, Underwearheads, Braineaters, etc. Apparently he was calling from the Maximum house because the next day he was banned from the swap for stealing records from the Maximum house.

    While at least one collector claims to have gotten a handwritten want list from him painstakingly listing every superrare punk record known to man, another claimed to have been Rob’s photocopy guy. “He’d send me his shitty, barely readable, dot matrix list and I’d run off hundreds of copies for free at my Kinko’s and ship them using their account. I got a few records in exchange but definitely less than what I should have gotten in exchange for thousands of $’s in copies….”

    But most of all, it is his relentless pursuit of vinyl and getting the best trade that has been his trademark and a source of grief for many a collector. Rumor has it Rob was once on the “Dating Game” and won an all expense paid trip to New Orleans. His plan of course was to ditch the chick and hit all the record stores.

    One of his ploys is to turn up at peoples houses without letting them know he’s coming. He did that quite a bit in the UK a few years back. He told me the reason he did this was so people wouldn’t have a chance to hide their best records. He has traveled extensively around the world through the years, including Australia, Europe and Japan, plundering and pillaging wherever he goes.

    Another collector said this about Rob’s relentlessness. “He wants to make deals that satisfy him totally (“you have cool records but mine are better”) and he is very pushy about getting a record. I wish I had hidden away the RED SQUARES “Time Change” 45! And you have to insist on getting the records from him first and insisting on registered shipping of records…”

    the little fucker has to behave at ebay. it would cut him off from many tasty items if he got banned. it’s in real life he scams people all over.

  10. bob the third says:

    rob is a creep and deep down he knows it

  11. Robbery says:

    Rob Noxious has to be nicest person on earth. LOL! Just kidding.

  12. Well, as amusing all this seems, and I do want to be just like you cool record collector dudes and agree with all you say, however I wonder since when did eccentric behavior and a fetischism for aliases warrant such a write-off? Does he steal records from people? Is he some sort of magician of the mind who can bend people’s wills to give him records? Or what? Clearly, if some douchebag showed up and wanted to make me a crap deal on my cool precious vinyls I’d just say no. No? I am serious. Have I missed something here? In any event, by all means Peter make sure to get that article out soon as I am for one eager to read it! It’s better than reading sport!

  13. The Flakes // Drummer says:

    Yepp he’s been reported stealing records from people and at record fares.

    You can’t tell he’s a douchebag at first since he got a polite and charming manner. He’s also very knowledgeable when it comes to obscure records. Even talked about swedish records I had never ever heard about.

    You can say no in case you know what he got and what’s it worth. But if you’re into trading and selling records that is not that known you bet he can trick you and he’ve done so with more people you shake a stick at.

  14. (*byter till svenska, utan nagra problem*) Mmmm, det hela later intressant. Med en gang tanker jag att han borde intervjuas for mitt fanzine! Ha ha ha.

  15. The Flakes // Drummer says:

    Han är den mest beryktade vinylskojaren av dem alla. Jag har försökt att få till en intervju via mail men han är hal som en ål. En klockren sociopat som blåser allt och alla utan några som helst samvetskval. Jag har försökt att få honom att återgälda den summa jag vart av med men han vägrar.

    Thanks Erich, that takes me back to ’74…you are the bees knees.

  18. ROBERTO says:

    Hi there

    I’m Roberto from Italy and I used to buy and trade some good records from Fahad years ago. Two years ago I received a call from a guy who told me he was in Milan and was a great Fahad’s friend. He proposed me to meet him at railroad station in Milan for a trade. He was travelling all around Europe with a baggage composed only by one pair of jeans and a t-shirt but with hundreds of records (7″).Actually I don’t remember the name of the guy. We met us and did a trade (he gave me the Vopos 7″ + Prevaricators ep for my Filth ep, the dutch punks). He told me that Fahad was really sick with heart troubles and some depressive problems. But he seems to me a nice guy. Could you please send me a picture of this guy?

    Thanks Roberto

  19. The Flakes // Drummer says:

    Roberto, with all respect but that trade sounds like a total fairy tale. First of all he NEVER trades 2 7″ for 1 7″.

    What he tells you can never be believed. He got a compulsive lying disorder. Fahad is a real person that is somewhat slow minded with a sweet tooth for Estrus rock.

  20. ROBERTO says:

    hello, thank for aswer.
    the trade was real, I think that Filth ep is more valuable than the two 7″. I did the trade because I had an extra copy of it. But maybe the person I’ve met was not the robber you are talking about. In addition, before this fact I bought some records from Fahad (Zoloft_Anaconda) at reasonable prices and I always received them in great condition.

    Take care

  21. My theory is that ERICH is in fact Rob_Noxious? And it gets worse: Erich and KBD-Peter is the same person! Hence all the great posts of stolen records?

    Well this started as a joke but now when I read what I just wrote I think I am onto something…

  22. The Flakes // Drummer says:

    Guy Robert Archambue, due to your inability to hold on to the truth your comment has been removed. As soon as you admit your responsibility in ripping me and others off and pay me back I will let your comment stay.

  23. Erich says:

    Damn Slobo – you stole my thoughts!

  24. WHo is Guy Robert Archambue?

  25. Erich says:

    I heard he plugged Frida.

  26. There is another interesting record collector discussed here:

    It appears he even claimed that his house had been burglared and all his records stolen, and his girl got raped at the same time…all for the sake of some puny vinyls….

  27. richhh says:
