Coachella (where clothing sometimes seems to be borderline optional) is coming up. Here are some pieces you can mix and match to blend in with the folky, hipster, hippie crowd you’re sure to be surrounded by.
Lots of vinyl albums used lock grooves. That’s when the needle reaches the end of the album and instead of, you know, ending, it keeps playing the last part in a loop. The Beatles did it with Sgt. Pepper’s, which ended with a “sound designed to annoy your dog” and an endless loop of laughter and gibberish.
But then there are double grooves, which is when the album’s grooves are pressed in a way that makes it so you get a completely different set of tracks depending on where the needle lands. That’s what Monty Python did, and the best part is that they didn’t bother to tell anyone about it, creating real confusion in the audience. Also, the record sleeve didn’t even list the album’s tracks, presumably so that there was no fucking way you could prove to your friends that you weren’t lying about what you heard. On top of that, both sides were labeled “Side 2,” making things even more maddening.
