Santiparro,
The TVD First Date

“When I was a kid I used to have a Fisher Price record player. I remember buying a Michael Jackson record at Toys R Us that came with a studded white glove.”

“Soon after I got really into the House Party movies and started taking my dad’s records and trying to figure out how to scratch. Instead, I just literally scratched everything. I used to forcibly play Queen records in reverse to try to discover secret demonic messages.

Then when I was about 15, there was a record store called The Beat Hotel in Berkley, Michigan that hosted punk and ska shows. It was really pretty much a ska record store. I’m pretty sure that doesn’t exist anymore.

Around that time every local punk band had a seven inch. Naturally I fell in love with the idea and not long after my punk band The Complaints had released their first seven inch on translucent green vinyl.

In my early twenties I started collecting vinyl but not like friends of mine did. I didn’t buy a lot of records. I am not the collector type with anything. Whenever I have too much of something, I get rid of it and move. I travel a lot so I’m not able to really amass a huge vinyl collection.

But that’s what friends are for.”
Alan Scheurman, Santiparro
