Gold records

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

Years ago, a musician interviewed on TV claimed that he scratched the surface of the gold record he was awarded, only to find that it was another band's album, cheaply spray-painted gold.

I was always skeptical about this, thinking that maybe the guy was indulging in a playful leg-pull, but, no, when I asked a member of Simple Minds about his own gold discs, he said they do just spray any old vinyl disc.

So there you go, some useless trivia for y'all.
.... there is no semblance of rock 'n roll around here!

Do they use Cds or vinyl these days?
And you know that she's half crazy but that's why you want to be there.
