One of the joys of searching through the used record bins is finding records that have never been opened, even better when they are bands you love and never thought you would find their stuff on vinyl, even more so when the band hasn't been together for years.
I found The Distillers first album unopened, with Brody Dale snarling at me from the back.
If you haven't heard them imagine if the Sex Pistols had Lydia Lunch as their lead singer.
Found a copy of Loc-ed After Dark in the bins that looked like it hardly ever been played.
I have great memories of this when it first came out.
With hits like Wild Thing Tone Loc became one of the first Top Forty Rap Stars.
The funny part is they had to talk him into the slow rap that became his trademark.
Tone wanted to speed rap like the other folks on the mic in his neighborhood.
Hard to believe that the Joshua Tree is 30 years old but it came out the when my oldest daughter was born.
I'm lucky that one of my best friends got my Japanese pressing of the album when I moved so it still sounds amazing.
I just bought tickets to see their show in Seattle in May.
This is going to be amazing.
