If the prospect of viewing Last Shop Standing thrills you, you may also get wet thinking about another film extolling the joys of vinyl: Records Collecting Dust. Directed by Jason Blackmore and David Robles, Records Collecting Dust is purely and complexly a movie "about the music and the records that changed our lives," according to the tagline.
This work is billed as "Volume 1: The California Edition" and it presents people like David Yow, Matt Pike, Kira Roessler, Jello Biafra, John Reis, Greg Anderson, Keith Morris, V Vale, and Pat Thomas (author of Listen, Whitey!) relating exactly what the tagline says in rooms abounding with artifacts that the music industry declared dead in the '80s. As with most things, the music industry was flagrantly wrong. For a certain type of person (hi there), this sort of low-concept, high-intensity geekery is like porn. The trailer below is wonderfully elliptical and should stoke excitement in a certain type of person (hi again). The film is slated for a late summer release.
