I tried to play my 12" of "In yer face" the other day, and it bounced so badly it practically became drum 'n' bass. Or latterday Autechre. The vinyl isn't visibly scratched or dusty, but the grooves, as any of you who own that one will know, are pretty shallow. I've tried the old see-how-many-2p-pieces-you-can-get-onto-the-back-of-the-needle-casing-before-it-goes-through-the-floor routine, but that had no effect either.
So I'm wondering: do any of you good people have any tips on bringing such things back to life? Or is it beyond help?
