"PUT ON SIDE TWO, LET'S ROCK"

A turntable, video display w/prepared records and stylus. Playing with rocks may have been the first sounds that the ancestors of modern man made when not painting on cave walls, stealing their neighbors women, or being eaten alive by sabre toothed cats. I loved the idea of the word play that the COOP used when they first mentioned the idea of doing 'rock' music with real rocks! My idea is a simple take on that imagery, only using phonograph records covered with good ol' Texas stone. You know you want to dance to it, why do you resist?
