Burn me that album, would ya?

This Magazine Staff

This contributor Brian Joseph Davis decided it would be a good idea to take 10 records that had been banned, burn them (yes, with fire), and see how they sounded on his turntable. The sonically bizarre results are here (needs sound). I honestly can’t remember where I first read about this, but someone commented that the only album that maintains its melody is The Kingsmen’s “Louie, Louie.” Pretty resilient tune!
