I live at the bottom of a hill in northeast Los Angeles with my wife and some cats, am a some-time photographer and musician who used to play drums in a UK-based band called Drugstore, and struggle to find enough space for my records.
This blog is inspired by those records, or more specifically their covers. The good, the bad, the odd, and even the unremarkable. In general it is more about the musings the covers may prompt – often the characters, labels, events, etc. associated with them, and sometimes how some of that may intersect with my own experiences – though some entries will merely be a sleeve that simply has to be shared, without too much in the way of commentary.
I hope you find something in here to enjoy. Feel free to leave a comment to let me know what you thought.
And check out my other blogs if you feel so inclined: vintage snapshots for vintage photos, kodakery for more vintage photo-related subjects and arrow highway for my own laidback, slightly experimental music, which has been used for soundtracks and on NPR.
