if you google the vinyl countdown, you will find many comical links to bad christian rock or other silly stuff. when my pal travis elborough wrote a book called the longplayer goodbye, I don’t think he envisioned a version in the U.S. to be called the vinyl countdown, but in this economic climate, anyone with a book deal is a lucky duck. anyway, travis is awesome and you should read our interview with him on chickfactor and buy his new book from powells! I mean, if you haven’t already. and I know many of you have.
