EDIT: This video was originally released on Patreon a year ago, but I decided to share it here as a tribute to the mighty Eddie Van Halen who recently passed away. I was a massive fan of his music and he will be greatly missed.

The Strange History of Soviet X-Ray Records

Hips don’t lie. But a hip x-ray in the Soviet Union of the 1950s might not have been what it appeared to be. In fact, if it was round, it was likely a record. Let us explain. At a time when the Soviet government strictly forbade western music from the likes of hip shaker Elvis and jazz great Charlie Parker, people found a creative way around the restriction. They turned x-rays of rib cages, fingers and other body parts into records—yes, actual audio recordings—that they exchanged on the sly. Stephen Coates of London’s Bureau of Lost Culture tells us about the ingenious scheme to create and distribute the bootleg audio recordings.

Black Friday Record Store Day 2019 – RSD Vinly Finds

Monie Muse – This year I participated in Record Store Day and hunted for some new and used records. We decided to visit Rhino Records in Claremont. I managed to find records I have been looking for. The record store was fully stocked with their Black Friday releases, I ended up finding a great recommendation Love Story from 1970, and a friend recommended singer songwriter, Nick Drake record called Bryter Layter. It’ll be my Christmas gift.
