'The 7" Single'
'This hand-sized plastic disc has had impressed onto its surface a spiralled groove that if laid out in a straight line would be 81 metres in length (for an average 2.45 minute record).
Somehow, god knows, when you rotate it on a turntable and allow a tiny needle to run along this groove it plays music that sounds exactly how it did at the time when it was recorded.
Obviously this is all done by some kind of witchcraft.
You can have two songs on one record, one on each side. Generally one side is good and the other is rubbish, I never play the rubbish side.
A paper label is stamped onto the part where there are no grooves to tell you who is singing and what etc.
That's about it.
There is another thing. These plastic discs can cheer you up,make you feel sad or exultant, inspire you to be a better person.
They can make you want to dance, sing along to badly, make you cry like a baby, make you think and make you forget the whole world exists.
As I've said before, it's all sorcery created by human beings - top of the planet earth food chain, greatest species in the milky way.
LOVE IT OR SHOVE IT.'
