Mini-blog #1: New Music
Anyway, my point here is that I got two exclusive 45s, from Wisconsin-via-Brooklyn rock quartet Locksley and from Danish garage band The Breakers, both with--wait for it!--non-album B-sides, the singular joy of my early record-collecting days. Thanks to the satellite station Underground Garage, I've heard these and many more, and now they're mine...all mine! *rubs hands together gleefully*
The other objective of this blog is to let you know that the service was crazy fast. I emailed them to let them know that their delivery was faster than Jimmy John's, and I'm not kidding. I ordered my goodies online on June 30, and they were waiting in my office mail yesterday, July 5. Wow!
And as if all that weren't enough, they sent me a Wicked Cool sampler of bands I've already been infected by...uh, I mean, amazed by, through listening to the station and the recorded radio show! Thirteen artists, fourteen songs, all at no extra charge. It was almost worth the $7.90 shipping (only $2.90 of which was the actual postage), but hey, people did their job and did it fast.
The only quicker way to get these would have been to steal them. Just kidding.
