I still love flexidiscs. Since they’re all collecting dust in my bookshelf cause I have them recorded to my computer anyway, I thought I’d play through my favourite ones, and record it as a podcast at the same time. Some of these songs have been released on cd later, like The Sea Urchins, The Visitors, The Stupid Cupids (early Velvet Crush), St. Christopher, The McTells and Razorcuts – with much better sound quality. There have been and are plans to reissue some, and some will most likely never be heard again. You’ll probably find all of these and lots of even more obscure ones over at the I Wish I Was a Flexidisc blog, which is still up. Full tracklist below.
