The 7-inch record isn’t just a format, it’s an art form. Welcome to the debut episode of The Spindle podcast. Every two weeks, music writer Marc Masters and music historian (and music maker) John Howard dive into a great 7-inch, dissecting its background, impact, and the reasons why it stands out as a small plastic piece of music history. The Spindle keeps it short and to the point–just like the best 7-inches do. Up first? Marc and John dive into Hüsker Dü’s “Eight Miles High.” Lower the tone arm and let’s go.
