Don't Let Them Collect Dust

Over the years I've collected a healthy amount of records. Some have never been played, and many have only seen the needle once or twice. My goal is to play every record I have, giving them life again at least once. To make it easier on me, it will be done alphabetically by format then genre... Yes I have OCD with my records and they are genretized and then in alphabetical order.

If you are in a band or have a record label, I will gladly listen to any record sent to me and write about it on here. Send me a PM if you are interested.

Bouncing Souls - Johnny X 7”
This record and the next 2 were my first experience with something that would boggle the minds of kids today, mail order. History lesson kids, back before online stores and eBay, if you liked a band they weren’t coming to your town and you wanted their records that your local record didn’t have, you had to send away for it. I had to go to the super market where I worked, get a money order, and send my money and what I wanted to some random address in New Jersey and hope to god that I get something in the mail 3-6 weeks later. I’m sure that a lot of people got screwed over the years mailing money to certain labels and bands, but the Souls didn’t do me dirty. I think they might have even thrown in a patch or stickers or a button.
