The Pulse

By Trevor Hale, Red Pulse Editor

As a musician, the Internet is the best thing that could ever happen to a band. It makes everything so easy that it’s ridiculous.

As a fan of records8212;actual vinyl records8212;the Internet is my worst enemy. No one buys records anymore because it’s so easy to find what you’re looking for online.

I miss the days when I would walk down to Smokey’s Records or spend an hour searching through the 7″ bins at Raunch looking for something that sparked my interest. I was too young to know who any of these bands actually were, so I would mostly judge them based on the cover. They say you should never judge a book by its cover, but judging records by their cover is a completely different topic. That is something that is entirely acceptable. Even if I’d never heard them, I’d still choose “Beggars Banquet” over “No Jacket Required.”

Saturday is Record Store Day, so do yourself a favor and head down to one of the local shops8212;even if you don’t own a record player8212;and check out what they’ve got. You might be surprised to find something you didn’t even realize you were missing.
