TFC Podcast Show #93: Remembering the Record Hole

The Record Hole was a cool record store in the Six Points area of Corpus Christi, Texas that was run by a pal of mine named Luther and his girlfriend at the time, Mine (sp?), circa the mid-to-late '90s. Luther's selection ran mostly on the pop punk and garage side of underground rock, but he did stock some hc notables and even some mainstream vinyl like Soundgarden's "Superunknown". I also bought a copy of Slayer's "Divine Intervention" on blood red vinyl that I still own to this day (Brick's inside voice: "Blood Red Vinyl"). Luther also promotes shows -- a nearly 20-year enterprise that includes everybody from Screeching Weasel to the Glow Skulls to the Sons of Hercules (see below). 

Luther's shop closed its doors in the late '90s but he did manage to unload a lot of tasty gems to his best customers -- his friends! And we're all the better for it.

 

In the early morning hours of April 17, 2011, Luther was seriously injured in a car accident and was in the hospital for more than two weeks following the incident. Friends and supporters are planning a benefit at the House of Rock on May 28, 2011. The benefit will feature some classic CC bands and current ones as well. More info is forthcoming.

In the meantime, here's the playlist*:

VERBAL ASSAULT - More Than Music
NOMADS, THE - Wasn't Born to Work
ECONOCHRIST - Take
DISSENT - Meathouse (originally by Negative Trend)
RIPOFFS, THE - Go Away
ADOLESCENTS, THE - Wrecking Crew
DAVE HARRIS - Dinner Music For a  Pack of Hungry Cannibals
SCHLONG - Tonight
COFFIN BREAK - Old 'n' Jaded
AVAIL - Song
MEATMEN, THE - Middle-Aged Youth
KATIE LEE - Will to Fail
SNFU - Reality is a Ride on the Bus
STIKKY - Spiderman
TEENGENERATE - Gonna Feel Alright
SONS OF HERCULES - Lost in Space
JAWBREAKER - Gutless ("Make the Collector Nerd Sweat" 10 inch version)
VELOCITY GIRL - Wake Up, I'm Leaving
NEW BOMB TURKS - American Soul Spiders 

* Thanks to Jerry, Arnold, Cris and Todd for the suggestions.
