As described in last week’s angsty post that culminated in some XX, I bought a turntable today. It was a craigslist purchase and, in the interest of assessing a used product, I asked the seller if I might hear the equipment hooked up to ensure it worked. He had a record already queued up. Though I was listening to Jimi Hendrix’s “Band of Gypsies” as recently as a few weeks ago, it’d been too long since hearing some classic Axis. Morning maniac music, indeed, and turn it up loud.
This column and song of the day is late because my internet ramblings this morning continued unfinished business from last night: the pursuit of some serious audio equipment.
