This blog is a Don Quixote inspired documentation of one man’s journey thru consumerism on a fixed income.
I buy cheap records and after reading music blogs for ten years, decided to do my own.
The premise is pretty simple. I enjoy buying discount used records in the range of $1.00 to $5.00. I buy a handful of these records a week on average. At least once a week, I blog about one of these albums, provide a rational to why I bought them, review the album, attempt to provide some background, and play a sample track.
Straight up, I hate the technical side of this. I make no bones about that.
If you are the copyright owner of any of these and you want the content removed, please email me directly and I will do so. I must say, however, that 98% of the new music I purchased in the last ten years was fueled by music blogs.
I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org .
On a personal note, I live in Houston, Texas. I don’t see as much live music as I did 15 years ago (getting old), but still actively seek music out whether audio blogs or used records. I like most all types. My favorite band is the Pogues although I will try not to reflect that here. I can bastardize and manipulate most instruments.
I feel it is also important to acknowledge that my favorite Clash album is Sandinista!. This should explain a lot about the content of this blog.
