Friday mixtape

First and last

The series is nearing its end. Last week it was just me, playing Bruce Springsteen and James Last on cassette. This week, CD s – and radiator (who now blogs here) reflects on the rise and fall of the independent record store and explains his daughter’s name, and TNC (who too infrequently blogs here) explores heavy metal’s homoerotic underbelly and hip hop’s late period. You have a couple of days to add your first and last CDs, and next week we move into the future with mp3s. Update: and we also have The Poor Mouth with some glam rock and avante post-rock.

Jazz is…
