Zoom Day 16: Album from a band that broke up. Thee Michelle Gun Elephant- Gear Blues. The end all, be all of Japanese garage rock. If you’re not familiar with them, check em out, you won’t be sorry. Broke up in the early 2000s, sadly with no chance of a reunion. The guitarist Futoshi passed away in 2009.  #aprilrecordaday  (at Sparton Stronghold)

Zoom Day 15: Most valuable record. I have know idea what my most valuable record is, but I certainly treasure this one. Return of The Living Dead- OST, picture disc. An old punker dude I used to work with years ago gifted this to me. 💀 #aprilrecordaday  (at Sparton Stronghold)
