"The state of music in the consumer world continues to disturb me. I grew up in the 70's when purchasing a 12-inch record with artwork, texture, information and smell was an EVENT. I'll never forget staring at X's Los Angeles in the store for 3 days before deciding to buy it--or finding Master Of Reality at a garage sale for $0.50 in the early '80s. I still own and listen to those same records. I probably spent as much time studying the lyrics of Elton John's Madman Across The Water as I did writing papers for sociology class. Those days are really gone, aren't they? " -- Trevor Dunn
