UPDATE: After uploading the video, it occurred to to that Sony have in fact revisited their back catalogue recently with the re-launch of the Aibo robotic dog. Hopefully this will continue and we’ll get to see some more modern reinterpretations of classic Sony products.
OMISSION: I forgot to mention that I pulled out any remnants of the old felt washer that was protruding from between the cogs before installing my replacement cloth tape.
Also perhaps I should have clarified that the gears unit was welded on at both ends, there were no retaining washers or e-clips that could be removed to disassemble it.
There’s also a fan website dedicated to the Sony PS-F5 that has some additional information – https://www.ps-f5.com
One more anime cover before the month’s over! It’s one of my favorites for sure, but I have to admit the ending was a real let down for me personally. Either way, doesn’t detract from the fantastic music the series has.
Metal Jesus & Troy picked up 27 vinyl records recently for their collections, mostly rock & metal…but with some surprises too! We also talk about Record Store Day, 8tracks, video game soundtracks and our love of the band Anthrax.

Nova Collective performs “Dancing Machines” from their debut album “The Further Side.”
Nova Collective began in 2014 when bassist Dan Briggs (Between the Buried and Me, Trioscapes) and guitarist Richard Henshall (Haken) began exchanging emails about music; before long, a few demos were fleshed out into full arrangements. Drummer Matt Lynch (Trioscapes, Cynic) and keyboardist Pete Jones (ex-Haken) came on board shortly after to finish writing the album. The Further Side was written on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, with Briggs and Lynch in America and Henshall and Jones in England, sharing session files until the group could get together at the beginning of 2015 to record with engineer Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me, The Contortionist). Mixed by Rich Mouser (Neal Morse, Transatlantic), it is immediately
clear that The Further Side is a labor of love for all involved, and that enthusiasm shines throughout.

Troy Nelson from KEXP joins me to talk about one of the craziest and unique vinyl records ever made: Jack White’s Lazaretto Ultra LP. There are over 10 unique things about it:
-180 gram vinyl
-2 vinyl-only hidden tracks hidden beneath the center labels
-1 hidden track plays at 78 RPM, one plays at 45 RPM, making this a 3-speed record
-Side A plays from the inside out
-Dual-groove technology: plays an electric or acoustic intro for “Just One Drink” depending on where needle is dropped. The grooves meet for the body of the song.
-Matte finish on Side B, giving the appearance of an un-played 78 RPM record
-Both sides end with locked grooves
-Vinyl pressed in seldom-used flat-edged format
-Dead wax area on Side A contains a hand-etched hologram the first of its kind on a vinyl record
-Different running order from the CD/digital version
-LP utilizes some mixes different from those used on CD and digital version
