When you’re going to lock yourself in a basement for a few hours, breathing chemicals the whole time (some toxic, some not), tunes are a necessity. They help keep you from thinking about the fact that you have found yet another way to develop carpal-tunnel syndrome -- always a lovely thought for us gee-tar players (is there anything in this world that doesn’t give you c.t.s.?). Anyway, these are the albums that kept me alert at 2 in the morning.
