Dep't of Corrections

A bit of a mixup in one of our otherwise 100% accurate reviews, from the latest list, pointed out by a customer, who wrote to say:

"By the way, the Sitar Outreach Ministry is doing Hall of the Mountain King from Greig's Peer Gynt Suite, not Stravinsky's Rite of Spring. At least that's what's in the audio clip. Tsk, tsk. And here I thought you guys were infallible!"

Thanks for spotting that. Whoops! Although, in our defense, the sticker on the cassette SAYS it's a cover of "Rites Of Spring", for some reason.

Finders Keepers/B-Music DJs at AQ this Friday!

Hey, hey, you're invited...

B-Music / Finders Keepers Records Live DJ set @ Aquarius Records
Sept. 9th, 8:30pm 'til close

featuring Doug Shipton & Mahssa Taghinia

Doug Shipton (Finders Keepers Records/B-Music UK) is a renowned record hound, LP compiler, international DJ and co-founder of Finders Keepers Records. He's in the States to promote his long awaited debut mixtape, DEDICATED SWALLOWER OF FASHION - a cacophony of syncopated psychedelic madness that draws from his enviably expansive record collection and challenging DJ sets, dusting off handpicked fuzz-ridden-break-heavy platters from as far and wide as Malaysia, France, India, Germany, USA, Russia, Spain, Columbia, Italy and Indonesia.

Mahssa (B-Music/Finders Keepers Records Los Angeles) represents the UK- based B-Music/Finders Keepers Records in the States (West Coast office) and is part of a global collective of DJs and "Vinyl Librarians" dedicated to the art of discovery (and rediscovery) of off- kilter music, film, design and literature of the better part of the '60s/'70s and beyond. Her own psychedelic "record party" in LA is called CUREATION, and she's responsible for the curation and compilation of the respective POMEGRANATES and GOOGOOSH collections.

Should be a lot of fun. They'll be playing wild, rare stuff we're sure, and some upcoming Finders Keepers / B-Music treats. Even though it's a "list night" we'll be groovin' as soon as we get the list done.

So be sure to come by!! We might even have some beverages to share.
