The Real Congregation :: Seven Inches Or Less! :: 02/14/12
With this episode, Marc With a C begins a trilogy of episodes featuring nothing but music from vinyl records. And, in order to work us all into it slowly, Marc is being a total size queen by starting small… meaning that this entire episode is all about those wacky fetishized donuts: seven inch records.
(And in one case, a five-inch record, too)
But since this format is usually chock full of the biggest oddities in an artists discography, it seemed like a good time to have a guest on the show, someone who was more of an innocent bystander and not as used to the stranger aspects of what lies hidden on these dusty obscurities… Marc asks his wife Nicole for her opinion on each track! Are these tracks really as interesting as Marc thinks that they are, or is this just stuff built for collector scum? Find out!
Oh, and they drink some super cheap wine throughout the episode, which is a Real Congregation first. I mean, c’mon. It’s Valentine’s Day! Plus, this edition’s “Strange Records Of The Week” must be heard to be believed…
