I was on woot.com the other day and they had one of those USB turntables that allows you to rip your records to mp3, so I fucking bought one.
so so so awesome...as I type this I'm listening to Iceburn's first 7" - a clear record first press....so sweet.
The entire motivation for buying this comes not only from my overwhelming music snobbish record collection of shitty punk and hardcore music, but to get a single record on mp3 that I've had now for years.
the Fugazi - 3 songs 7".
and not just any 7", the 7" that I have. When I was in high school I borrowed this 7" to my friend who promptly never played it but put it on his dresser next to his window in his bedroom for a summer.
I assume that it was the sun, and not the overwhelming stench of teen-age dude room that warped this record slightly, leaving a whispy noise in the audio when it played.
the thing is, I think it added the perfect character to the song "Joe #1". the song starts with just an overwhelmingly spectacular bass riff and drumming, and then there are a few pauses in the song, where you can hear the whisp of the warped record.
I think it sounds awesome, and here it is, download it, add it, love it.
I love fugazi, I love this record, I love this goddamn turntable.
