TSURURADIO Vinyl Preservation Society Presents…. Surfer Rosa on Vinyl!!!

Well, was going to rip us a little something for the weekend, like I always do, but two things happened… one, we had a huge neighborhood yard sale on Saturday resulting in me buying another old bike! This one, an old 70’s (I think) ladies Schwinn Caliente!!! Here’s what she looked like when I towed her home with my left hand (tires flat!) while riding my CCCP with my right.

Spicy, eh? She was going to be a parts bike, but after some fiddling, I realized she was in really good shape! So, I cleaned her, tuned her, put some a fresh wheel on, got rid of about 40 lbs of junk and here’s her today…

NOW she’s spicy… ready for my baby to own the road!

Also, I readied up my World Tourist for her first full commute to work tomorrow. Went single gear…. I have no idea why, but I couldn’t shake the clean look and the idea of going for it, just me and my legs for 17 miles tomorrow, no help from the nicer gears… here’s the results:

Not sure if I’m going to paint her or not. No hurry, need to see if I (or the bike) can make it to work first! lol….

So… all this distraction leads me to the other reason why I didn’t rip some vinyl for all you Tsuruphiles, good friend and key vinyl member “Hitmewithmuzak” ripped a whole slew of LPs and 7″s! All of which deserve a post here on tsururadio! But instead of spending 20 hours prepping all those posts all proper style, let’s just go with one, a classic, nonetheless! The Pixies awesomely covered (I think my English is getting worse and worse, but if you are familiar with the album cover, you know EXACTLY what I’m talking about) Surfer Rosa!

Not much to say about the album, it’s Pixies, it’s Surfer Rosa, it’s fucking awesome, check, done. So enjoy (thank you soooo much HMwM!) as…

    well… it’s a 70min commute on a good day, 80+ on a bad day. It’s 17 miles. Add in the hills, it should make for an interesting ride in about an hour!
