Records and Stuff: Reinventing the record

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - In some ways, you might call the Dangeleqiczs a garage band, because John and Jill and their two teenagers have banded together in their Rancho Penasquitos garage.

"We were cleaning out the garage one day. We came across our huge album collection… they're just sitting there in the cabinets," John said.

So they decided to turn classic rock into functional art.

"These are album cover journals and notebooks that we started off with. The cool thing about these is the liner sleeves. If they have lyrics or pictures, we'll include that too," John said.

Next, they molded used vinyl into record bowls.

"You can stick anything in these record bowls, from napkins to keys," John said.

But then another thought occurred to the couple.

"Some of these have really cool pictures on the center labels. What if we display them on the wall?" John said. "It's a typical record. We just put a clock movement on there."

"We try to get the ones with the really cool centers, like a lot of The Beatles, we try to use the apple centers," Jill said.

"Often times people with the business, they'll send us one of their own vinyl records. We focus on rock and roll, but we do have other things that people really like," John said.

John and Jill started selling their wares at street fairs, but now have created their own website to accommodate the nationwide demand for their merchandise.

"It's really a feel-good type of business. When people see these things, they go, 'Oh, I remember that album, I remember that concert,'" John said.

Thanks to this local garage band, the music memories of our lives are no longer frozen in time, and we can continue to rock around the clock.
