I ordered with Patrick (northern sky productions) a huge amount of stuff, over U$ 200,00, including 7"eps, cds and nearly 40 tapes. The first parcel with cds and vynils reached my house about 2 weeks later, really quicly. But them I started to wait for the second parcel, with the tapes, and, well, six months later, it hasn't beem even posted.
I tried to contac him, but most of the time my e-mails were just ignored, or he replied with stupid excuses like "oh I'm having some problems with money and the postal rates are too expensives to your country" - what is bullshit, since I had paid the postal costs in advance.
So, after a thousand delays, I finally received the tapes, more than 7 months after he got the money. That's why I guess there would be fair to say thatf he's probably not a rip-off, but negotiating with him was a real bad bad experience.
