Philip Chevron has had numerous Gold and Silver discs (awarded by the music industry for passing a specified number of sales of a record) stolen from his home in Nottingham. They are instantly identifiable as they are specifically awarded to Philip by name, and are not just generic Pogues Gold/Silver awards. Among the items are a silver disc for the 7" single of "Fairytale Of New York", several UK and international awards for the first 6 Pogues albums. Later awards are Gold CDs but the majority of the stolen discs are 12" vinyl LPs. Philip is seeking the help of all Pogues fans and asks you to keep alert to anybody trying to sell, trade or dispose of these discs in any way.
Phil says: "These discs are of no possible value to anybody but myself, their intrinsic value is negligible as these discs are not made from real gold or silver. They have no conceivable sell-on value to anyone else except as Pogues memorabilia, but I feel sure that most Pogues fans would rather I had them back. I'd be grateful for any information or leads. They're silly little trophies in many ways but, what the hell, I worked hard for them ."
The police at West Bridgford in Nottingham are aware of the matter and the officers dealing with the case are PC Denniss (Badge number 2630) and PC Rob Archer (Badge number 3180). Nottinghamshire police are on 0115 9455999, extension 6162 or, if you prefer, contact Phil via this site.
