A score from halfway around the world

I love records. Like all beat diggers, I have a long list in my head of certain platters that are still on my want-list. These little buggers have alluded me all my life.

Last week I got an email from my eBay notifier that there was a copy of Sandwiches by the Detroit Grand Pubahs available. I've gotten this email before, but it usually led to a posting of a bootleg copy with no original track, or even worse - a CD of the song in question.

But this one was the real deal! It was from a seller in Japan of all places and after a few days of bidding I wound up being the winner. It didn't cost much, but the shipping was twice the purchase price. Totally worth it. It arrived today, Sunday (!) and is spinning on my hi-fi as I type this.

The song is amazing. Year 2000 Electro love, and weird as hell. And would you look at that album cover? A sandwich on a portable turntable. Looks, and sounds, like heaven to me.

Keep dreaming my friends, it can all become reality.
