vomitsunami's current selection is:
Can't Truss It
by Public Enemy

First CD I ever bought was Public Enemy's "Apocalypse '91: The Enemy Strikes Black." It was also the first CD I ever bought at an actual record store, Sour Records in Westerville, OH.

Before that, I had quite a few cassette tapes, purchased at a long-forgotten (and terrible) record store chain at the mall.

Sour Records was a revelation. It was tiny--i've seen closets that were bigger. It was curated--packed with amazing music, including lots of local stuff. Central Ohio was exploding with great music at the time: Guided By Voices, The Breeders, Afghan Whigs, New Bomb Turks, etc. The walls and ceiling were wallpapered with band t-shirts and posters. Steve, the owner, only stocked stuff he liked. He hated Ted Nugent, so there were no Ted Nugent discs.

Me and @Buddyrex and @hillbillygothic used to ride our bikes up to the store, which was way off the beaten path--like in an alley behind the main business district of the town. One day, we got there and it wasn't open. So we looked in the window, and saw Steve, the owner, asleep on the floor.

I decided then and there that i wanted to open a record store someday.

Still haven't. But there's time.
