I have no shame. I totally walk and dance in the street, all the time. There are many times that I’m listening to a mix and feel like I just “have to” (dramatic much?) bust a move. The people of Togane already think I’m weird so I figure I might as well just go full throttle. 😛
I was dancing to Origin Unknown’s “31 seconds” also known as “Long Dark Tunnel” but officially known as “Valley of the Shadows” the other day and was thinking fondly of my first record purchases.
My first foray into buying records I bought 3 tracks. “Valley of the Shadows” (a used copy that I was shocked and appalled that somebody was getting rid of. I was late to the party and didn’t start buying records til ’97, so I was convinced I wouldn’t be able to own it, so thank you whoever you are that let it go.) Roni Size’s “It’s Jazzy,” and Conquering Lion’s “Code Red.” I matched beats (badly) with those 3 records for ages until I could scrounge up enough money to go back to the record store and buy more.
I decided to have a little nostalgia party with these three tunes the other day. Good memories.
