Tapewreck #1 - The X-Cellerations - Magic

I inaugurate this blog with the track that inspired it: the spectacular crash of a tape recorder desperately trying to capture a 1984 practice by the X-Cellerations in Lancaster, Pennsylvania leaving the beautiful remains of The Cars' "Magic." The X-Cellerations were a new wave cover band formed by Greg of the Sinister Lampshades and recorded on Harry's dad's reel-to-reel(see next post), but I can imagine the oil congealing in the bearings as Harry frantically tries to keep the tape turning with his finger.

Twisted under sideways down
I know you're getting twisted
And you can't calm down

The X-Cellerations - Magic
