Vinyl Mondays -> Record Face

Vinyl Mondays was a feature I did weekly on the Flashing Lights website until we threw in the towel.  I migrated all the posts to for future generations to read and download but haven’t done a new one in years.  And now like a phoenix, this new column on TTL blog rises from the ashes.  The first post is a favorite DC Go-Go tune, “The Bud” by Huck-A-Bucks.

Trillest Chili

“Today, New York DJ, producer and label honcho DJ Ayres cooks us his crock-pot chili and A-Trak’s holiday party guests take it for a test drive. Ayres, best known as co-owner of T&A Records and one-half of NYC DJ crew The Rub, tells us about his acid trip of a life story growing up in the Deep South. Read on for tales of life as a late-20th-century Southern beau—stripping at bachelorette parties, eating road kill, selling shrimp out of a dumpster for crack money; old ladies giving away used porn found in hotels, and a restaurant run according to the dietary laws of Leviticus.”
