The spindle, the hole, the groove

‘I found romance in the spindle, the hole, the groove, the Capitol Records tower, the word “Decca” and its suggestion of “Mecca,” the deep red of Red Seal labels, the flimsiness of Dynagroove, the drama of records stacked at a slanted angle, like a fedora’s brim or an airplane’s wing, waiting for automatic play on my parents’ turntable: these were the molecules of love and loss, of sexual wonderlands beyond my grasp.’

–Wayne Koestenbaum, The Queen’s Throat, p46.
