From The Desk Of Mac McCaughan: Music Hall MMF 2.1 Turntable

mac_mccaughanlogo110bbOutdated reference point or not, the anti-apathy sentiment on Superchunk‘s sophomore single “Slack Motherfucker” still seems characteristic of Mac McCaughan 20 years after he wrote it. The recently dormant Superchunk is moving again, and¬†McCaughan also fills his time with Portastatic and co-ownership of Merge Records. As if that wasn’t enough to keep him busy, McCaughan is guest editing magnetmagazine.com this week.

McCaughan: I’ve got a lot of records, but for years, I kept buying pawn-shop turntables that looked cool and played records for crap. Motors died, belts broke, records skipped. Then I went out and got a brand new turntable after reading up a bit; I went with the bottom-rung Music Hall, and it rules. Even my most beat-up and warped records play great, and it’s a joy. It’s hard keeping the one-and-a-half-year-old away from the spinning black disc with the colorful paper in the middle, but I think he’s beginning to understand that it’s not a DJ turntable.
