Modern Mechanix Does Music

lrg_jazz_instruments.jpgMy thanks to BoingBoing for turning me on to the great site, Modern Mechanix. With everything from the 1930s through the 1980s, from robots to telephones, this site has high-quality scans of old articles and advertisements galore.  They've had some great posts of late related to music that caught my eye:

They have a whole slew of catagories, so you can browse all the music-related articles all at once, for example.  Or maybe you prefer robots or war-related stuff.  Either way, it's good for a great time, and maybe even some inspiration.
