Check out this awesome news clip from 1979 about the state of the record business. Pretty crazy that record sales generated more money back then than the movie and professional sports industry. Oh, how times have changed.
The manager from Tower Records looks suspiciously like the guy stuffing record in his back pack in Record City. I wonder if it’s the same dude?
I’ve been on a serious Raspberries kick lately and this song has been a major “ear worm” for weeks. Musically the band was amazing but there are a few songs that lyrically feel a bit creepy these days. Let’s just say I feel the immediate need to contact the authorities any time someone starts talking about a girl being “too young to know about romance” but they still need to “take a chance” like Eric Carmen sings in “Tonight”. Let’s just hope Carmen was singing from the perspective of a 15 year-old boy and not a 25 year-old man.
KEXP has been so supportive since we released out first EP. We can’t thank them enough. One of the coolest things to do as a band is playing live on the radio. We had the chance to do it in December. Check out this clip of us playing “These Times” from our EP These Times Are For All Of Us.
Check out our video for “Love Her Records” that uses some footage form the classically bad movie Record City. We bet you didn’t know that Ted “Issac The Bartender” Lange got his start behind the counter at Record City. Check it out!

It’s a good read – and it’s a good site! Click the photo or here to be taken to their site.
