Vinyloscopy with Building Chaos

Building Chaos
It's time to check in with the strange sort of metallers that are Building Chaos. Hopefully you've had a minute to check out their latest record, Bourbon Times.

It's definitely a fun romp. Shave My Ass Productions is getting pressed into the physical realm for you. 

But you can also head on over to Bandcamp to snatch it up digitally.

In the mean time, let's find out about how the men themselves spin their records.

1. Listening to Black Sabbath's eponymous debut the night I got it blew me away. What's the
album that sounds the best on vinyl compared to digital sources?

Pink Floyd’s “The Wall”. It’s like they recorded it with the vinyl scratches and on digital form
just sounds wrong!

2. I was laying in bed one night and couldn't sleep and I figured, it was time to start buying
records. How did you come to the idea that it was time to start buying vinyl instead?

We grew up with vinyl. Then the new technology came and the turntables got dusty. But as
you grow older, you have to go back to your roots. It’s an urge and it’s the right one.

3. For my old stuff, it's vinyl worthy, for new stuff, it's all vinyl if available. Do you buy
everything on wax or do you have a vinyl worthy category?

I think everybody has a vinyl worthy category. To me on that category qualifies either
something classic or a record that you fancy almost every song on it (so that you can leave it
on going ‘till the end).

4. My second living room is where I keep it all. Upstairs, my early 70's receiver, a 70's turntable,  and 70's 5 way speakers. Tell us all about your vinyl set up.

When you have little curious monsters running round the house, you can either have the
expensive rig and say your prayers every day or the cheap one and let them dig in too. 

went for the second, so it’s a Crosley for now and a Technics on the wish list.

5. Do you read the lyrics and go over the inserts when you're spinning?

Who doesn’t?!? It’s an important part of the whole process!

6. When someone says, I'm stupid for buying records, I tell them, thanks, more limited
edition colored vinyl for me, what's your answer?

I’ll agree with you. My wallet won’t.

7. My first album ever was Live Evil by Black Sabbath, so I'm stuck on live albums. What's the

best live album on vinyl?

That’s a tricky one. I would be between “Rory Gallagher Irish Tour '74” and “Deep Purple
Made in Japan”. 

On both of them the songs take a strange life of their own, quite different
than on the studio recording.
