Response to Art Tavana and LA Weekly

Response to Art Tavana and LA Weekly

On November 12, 2014, journalist Art Tavana from LA Weekly published the article “What the Hell Happened to Backside Records?” He came into the store one day, introduced himself, and told the co – owner of the store, Eric Flores, that he wanted to write an article on shops in Burbank that sell records such as, Atomic Records, Urban Outfitters, and ourselves. He also wanted to praise Backside for being open for so long. Those of you who read the article saw that not only did he try to slander the store’s reputation; he also falsely claimed that Backside Records is “barely” a record store. Art, you’re surely mistaken. If you had done even a slight amount of research before writing your article on Backside, and if you had actually dug through the records at our shop, you would have noticed just how much pride we take in our records section. Backside Records is known for having a large fan base for punk rock, hardcore, hip-hop, and rock record collectors/buyers. There are thousands of new releases, collectables, singles, 7 inches, cassette tapes, CDs and used records in the record division of Backside Burbank.

May I also remind you that we connect with our customers through this vital medium (the internet). We blog about new releases in the music industry and the respected musicians who visit our store and partake in interviews on Soul Assassins Radio, and we also blog about events that we host at our store i.e. Record Store Day. Art, either you deliberately lied to your readers, or you just didn’t do such a good job documenting the purpose of our store. The way I see it is, you took it upon yourself to purposely take half-assed photos of the apparel sections of the store, and didn’t even bother to capture the other aspects of our shop. When I read an article, I’d like to know the whole story behind it. I’d like to know the ins and outs of whatever is being discussed in the article, and you failed to provide that through your lack of information and explanations. One last thing before I sign off, you called our customers and the youth of Burbank “empty-headed” when you first published your article. You may be able fool the audience who are about to read your article for the first time, but you surely won’t fool us with your frantic editing skills.

Screenshot of Art Tavana’s controversial and unacceptible comment about our customers and youth of the city. “Backside Records is regressing into an encapsulation of Burbank’s empty -headed youth culture.” If you were to read his article now, there would be no trace of that comment.
