Apropos of the quote in Nipper's post below—"Smith surmises that 'this guy must have half-inched one from the factory the day it was pressed, gone back to work the next day and found out they'd trashed the lot'"—"to half-inch" something means what it sounds like: to pilfer something over in merry old England. But why? Maybe this is something all record nerds know, but for the rest of us, this bloke above explains. Then explains again. And again. There's something sort of soothing about this bloke.
