The above photo illustrates a primitive form of the LO & BEHOLD! record and book store. Lamplit alongside our humble releases, these used books were sold and that bread was saved with intention of eventual space. Generally sold anywhere that would have me for a reading. A similar thing happened whenever (wherever) I had a dj gig. The above black and white photo was taken by a lady named Molly at an abandoned house reading in Ann Arbor, Mich. The color photo below is of my dj set up at a bar in Ferndale, Mich. for a weekly party I had called Tuesdays in the Forest.
This sort of behavior continued for quite some time until one day I started working at a consignment shop one day a week in exchange for a little space to put a record bin and a small bookshelf. This too continued for some time until I bought into the shop as a quarter owner along with three others.
