art chantrySend art chantry a message :   on one of my trips to japan back in the 80's they had a boombox on the market that i saw folks carrying that had a 12" turntable built into it. it was one of those axis tone arms that scrolled on a bar frame-thing. it locked down the record verically - SIDEWAYS - and played with the record on it's riding on it's rim!
kids walked around with these damned things on their shoulders and they were played VINYL RECORDS!
them japanese folks is the craziest!

PlantweedSend Plantweed a message :   "i think he's trying to say that vinyl has a better good to suck ratio than compact discs have."
--Exactamundo. I know of a guy who goes to coffee shops and cafés, and quietly spins exotica and such on a turntable. He's not booked, he just shows up and they don't bother him.

ShawnySend Shawny a message :   this is true...this is true...and i used to do that a lot. but what ended up happening is that i was already out 3 hours/day for commuting, so spending any more time making mix tapes (which take me forever) was kind of a drain i didn't want to have. i guess i could always have just taped full length albums...
i wish there was a portable turntable that existed. imagine walking onto a bus with a big ole turntable and some 12"'s, spinning them on the way downtown. hehe. i'd love to see the looks on people's faces.

seripopSend seripop a message :   for commuting and tours i make tapes of my records it's what my dad did it worked then and works now plus tapes don't get scratched   2004-01-26 08:33:24
ShawnySend Shawny a message :   it's true...i buy a ton of vinyl too.
although, i have a TON of cds, and that basically comes down to one reason. the commute from home to school is between 1 hour and 1 1/2 hours each way for i end up taking the bus for a good 3 hours out of the day. having a bunch of discs and a discman lets me listen to 5 or so albums, start to finish, every school day. without cds, i'd be nothing. heh. although, once the commuting stops, vinyl is going to own my life. it already kinda does.

DaveGinkSend DaveGink a message :   I love this poster! All your stuff is genius Art!! The typewritten info in the left box is classic.
I'm gonna half to try and do a poster or two in this style one of these days and see if I can't capture the essence even half as well as Chantry. It looks like it would really be fun.
I can see that the trick would be to not have it looked forced or too thought out even though it is.

dustin wallaceSend dustin wallace a message :   and by lame, i don't mean that crider is lame, i mean it's lame that more people don't buy vinyl.   2002-08-05 14:27:34
dustin wallaceSend dustin wallace a message :   that's lame. i notice almost all of the 12" vinyl he puts out now is limited to 1000 copies. i always buy vinyl when i buy from estrus. mainly because i like the covers - they look so good when they're BIG.   2002-08-05 14:26:41
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   everybody loves vinyl, but nobody buys it. in the old days dave could maybe sell a guaranteed 3000 singles of everything he put out. now he only presses 500 and they sit there.
the crust club was losing money for a very long time, and as much as dave loves vinyl, he couldn't afford to put out singles just for himself to listen to. sad, huh?

dustin wallaceSend dustin wallace a message :   i just sent money to dave last week for some records. bring back the crust club!!!   2002-08-05 13:51:24
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   darren -
yeah, dave and i are still good buddies and i do stuff for him whenever he asks. things have slowed down quite a bit in the indie record world, and so has estrus. nobody buys anything these days it seems. and estrus is NOT benefitting from all the 'new garage rock' thing because he passed (bored him) on all the bands that are hot right now (all those bands everybody seems to think invented garage rock) and now everybody seems to have forgotten the recent history of this crap. so dave is not benefitting at all. he showed me some questions he was sent by a reporter at the la times and the fool thought garage rock came from SWEDEN in the last couple of years! stupid dork.
the makers used to be a buncha cool guys, but they burned quite a few bridges in their quest for rockstardom. too bad, i used to love their whole schtick. now, they seem like they're sinking fast. waste.
by the way, this 'invitationals' poster was the actual poster commissioned by estrus to promote the tour. several other posters for the tour popped up and as far as i know, none were ok'd by estrus, which i always think is a little tacky.
