The Awkward Sons of Patrick Stewart
One half of The Awkward Sons is opening a record store this year.
Over the holidays, this obviously came up in conversation A LOT! The most common question, though, was, "Are you going to stock any CDs?" Reasonable enough, given the state of the CD market in the last few years.
I still think there's value in the things, especially when an album doesn't get a vinyl or tape pressing. Or when the packaging gets inventive (early Solefald, those nice Discordance Axis dvd cases). And everyone loves a big cd box set (that Ayler box - pure sex).
It's a weak format, obviously, but it's what's on it that counts.
So, in praise of the humble CD, tonight's show will be wall-to-wall polycarbonate plastic.
I'm still picking tracks as I write this, so it'll be a shock for us all come 10.00pm.
Strap the fuck in, sugar tits.22:00 - 23:00
