Late January Roundup: Prefab Purchases, Turntable Destruction and My Top 5s

Recently, I was fondly remembering one of the earliest reasons that I was attracted to records as a child. Much to the chagrin of my parents, I was fascinated at a very young age at the fact that if you messed with records while they were spinning, you’d produce all sorts of strange sounds. While I’m the adult in this situation now and would never dream of messing with my precious circular bits of plastic, it’s really interesting hearing the strange experimental noise music that comes from Vinyl Terror and Horror (AKA Camilla Sørensen and Greta Christensen) and their physical vinyl cut ups and deconstructed turntable monstrosities.
Check a few of these out here:
Speaking of vinyl, like many music obsessives out there, one of my favorite movies is High Fidelity. Every time that I watch it, I always wonder about my own versions of Rob, Dick and Barry’s infamousTop 5 lists. So I’ve finally given them a shot.
I so far have three list videos made, Top 5 Track 1s Side 1s, Top 5 Songs About Death, and Top 5 Songs For My Own Funeral. I have one left to go, and it’s the hardest yet. I’ll post that in a few days.
You can see the firs three here:
