“Pretty soon now you're gonna get older. Time may change me, but I can't trace time. I said that time may change me, but I can't trace time.” -David Bowie 💿🕳💔 My daughter @laurenbeesley sent me a message via Social Media that Manifest was about to close the doors forever. I’m glad a loved one broke the news to me. It’s no secret that I was vaccinated with a phonograph needle and that I’ve had Rock and Roll Pneumonia since the Seventies. I’ve spent a small fortune on LP Records, Cassette Tapes and Compact Discs ever since I dropped the better part of a ten spot on KISS Alive! I love the artwork and smell of vinyl records. I tolerated cassettes in Dolby hissing between songs blaring from my Alpine 6X9’s mounted in the rear deck of my 1979 Trans Am. The clean sound of the Compact Disc was my favorite by far. I used to spend hours at Sounds Familiar talking to @33andonethirdrecords about what was good. @officialericjohnson was one of @33andonethirdrecords best recommendations. @dariusrucker worked at Sounds Familiar in Columbia, SC as well. Sounds Familiar, Peaches Records and Tapes and the Record Bar all lost the battle to Best Buy and the Big Box Stores. Now the Big Box Stores are phasing out Compact Discs because iTunes and File Sharing have driven the Music Business in non tangible direction. Now Manifest is near the end of the road. There’s more to music than a digital file. I don’t know if I want to curse out loud or cry, but I know I want there to be a place where I can spend hours with the music only to purchase a handful of Classic Compact Discs to add to my collection. #recordstore#towerrecords#peachesrecordsandtapes#recordbar#samgoody#soundsfamiliar#manifestdiscsandtapes#primalscream#33lp#cassettetapes#eighttracktape#compactdisc#mp3#longliverocknroll#linernotes
I wish I had a photo of the bar owner, who plays records all night and generally sets the tone for the room, and of the regular who sat next to me and told me he has been coming here for 30 plus years now and it is still his favorite bar in Tokyo, and another of the sweet bartender who kept giving me knowing eyes when the same regular kept repeating his awe at how I found this place on my first visit to Japan (!) over and over again.
But instead I have this Manhattan. It’s not the fanciest that I’ve had on this trip, nor likely the best made, but it is definitely my favorite.
Man, we need more bars like this.
Miss @larsen.kc this past weekend? No worries! We’re playing again this Friday at @recordbar w/ @secondhandking, @variousblondeadventures, and @thefeyband.
Aaaaaand I’ll be posting about another fun show here in a couple of days! 👀
