Thomas Edison, “Ahem… KICK OUT THE JAMS, MOTHERFU…”

At the other end of the Spectrum from Metal on Wax.

The ever entertaining Al Duvall claims to record on wax cylinder, but I’ve never managed to purchase one (a friend has a player) so I am dubious.

Found a way to make a Rob Scallon project sound even shittier. Well done Rob.

Nothing more metal…

It sounds so much softer and warmer than vinyl this is why i listen to all my music on wax through metal horns.

Meaningless Trivia Time: Double Indemnity was probably the first movie featuring the getaway-car-won’t-start-at-first-due-to-a-flat-battery-but-then-eventually-does-start-at-the-last-moment plot device.
Apparently it was an 11th hour inspiration Billy Wilder had while shooting the movie when one day, your guess is correct, his car wouldn’t start after wrapping up for the day.
