technical difficulties inevitable in studio b. please stand by.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:14pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I like how the artwork today entraps the gnome (pixie / elf / hobgoblin ?) with the letter "o." He is also experiencing technical difficulties.
  12:16pm Brendan:

I was looking for that chewy piece of caramel that fell out of my mouth in 1997 when I was sorting the Shellac CDs in the record library. Guess it kinda stuck to the CD. I'll be down to get it ASAP. As i recall it was tasty.

looking forward to hearing what 1997 was like..as I can't remember anything from that year. Drunk all the time, pissed off almost everyone I knew, quit 2 groups, formed another one...almost as bad as 1993

Clicky year.

...Summer of Love on the Half Century - sure...but this 2/5ths as long ago? That's weird...I guess SunRa has my answer...

@Chris & @Polyus My husband still has his copy of The Futurist! Will never sell it. ;-)

1997 was a very strange year. But then, they all were. I think.

Avatar 2:07pm northguineahills:

I was buying records like they were going extinct in 1997, yet the only ones I have from this set is Kool Keith and Ground Zero.
Avatar 2:11pm Polyus:

I think it was the brokest year of my life. Quite a few of these records are new to me.
  2:12pm JakeGould:

I like Shellac since I was able to sell off some singles I bought in 1993 for decent cash when I was poor.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:13pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I had rebounded to the last of three awlready failing in that era CD stores I worked @ in Santa Barbara, CA trying to pay rent in such a place that way...didn't work - lotsa CDs, nowhere to put them...

also: what Polyus said -- '97 was broke as hell. Tucson AZ. Worked a block from Toxic Ranch (record store), which was heartbreaking.

What the Rev said.

About Cows
Avatar 2:30pm Polyus:

Toxic Ranch was a cool store, stopped there once when I was passing through.
Avatar 2:31pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Between Toxic Ranch and the endless warehouse raves at that time, life there wasn't bad to be honest..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:34pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Blew thru on way to Cali. mid-late 80s: Tucson - college town surrounded by desert. Phoenix seemed full of cowboys who meant business - wasn't sticking around...
Avatar 2:34pm northguineahills:

It took me a while to warm to this Squarpusher album, the bass was straying a little much into Stanley Clarke territory for me at the time, now I love this album!
Avatar 2:35pm northguineahills:

I wasn't that broke in '97 as I was a senior in college, had a full-time job for what I was studying, and my rent was $160/month.

Zats...not me. Missed it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:38pm tallbuildings:

Was that the last freaknik?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:41pm Carmichael:

I was stationed in Tucson in '81, perfect time and place for me.
Avatar 2:42pm Chris from DC:

The first Terrastock was that year. Which is where I got turned on to the Frond.

oh Nick Cave! THANK YOU for so totally articulating the TRUTH
Avatar 2:47pm Polyus:

J. Spaceman's high water mark here? I feel like every SPZ record since then has been on a downward slope.
  2:55pm Brendan:

Thanks M

J Spaceman's improv stuff in still nice when w/ the right company.
