Recycled rock ‘n’ roll
Used outlet supplies rare wares to collectors
By Tasha E. Kelter
Some say he has the largest collec
tion of rock £n’ roll oddities in Ne
braska, but Stuart Kolnick of Lincoln
is always trying to get rid of his rare
Kolnick, owner of Recycled
Sounds at 824 P St. in Lincoln’s
Haymarket District, makes his living
by selling both new and used records,
tapes, compact discs, posters and other
Some of Kolnick’s rarer goods in
clude tour books, buttons, calendars
and autographed merchandise.
In a box behind the front desk,
there’s a pink foam pig that promoted
Pink Floyd’s 1987 “Momentary Lapse
of Reason” tour. Kolnick said the pig
was sitting in one man’s basement for
more than eight years before it got to
the store. Recycled Sounds recently
sold a voodoo doll that promoted
Jane’s Addiction’s “Ritual De Lo Ha
bitual” album, released in 1990.
There’s even a New Kids On The
Block puzzle and a paperback biogra
phy of 1960s pop star Donovan.
Kolnick opened Recycled Sounds
4'/2 years ago. He said that while at
tending the University of Nebraska
Lincoln, he saw the need for a used
record store in the downtown area.
“All college towns need to have a
primary used outlet,” Kolnick said. As
he saw it, Lincoln was “just a place that
heeded another store.”
Before opening Recycled Sounds,
Kolnick worked in various record
stores for five years.
“I had expertise that was a little dif
ferent from what everyone else had,”
Kolnick obtains much of his mer
chandise through dealers in England,
where promotional posters and trinkets
are common. He also buys collections
from domestic hobbyists and finds
goods at record shows held through
out the United States.
Roadies and other people associ
ated with bands often provide Kolnick
with odd wares, he said. Catherine
Wheel’s tour manager once gave him
a package of leftover promotional
goods from a 1994 tour.
“I have lots of connections,”
Kolnick said. “There are lots of old
things floating around.”
Kolnick himself collects merchan
dise primarily relating to REM, U2 and
“Eventually I see so much of ev
erything that it’s almost easier not to
keep it around,” he said of the col
lectibles in his store.
He said he enjoys the business be
cause of the avid collectors who “have
been looking for that particular item”
and find it in his store.
Recycled Sounds, which currently
carries more than 2,000 cassettes and
CDs and more than 20,000 records,
maintains a list of customers who come
in looking for collectibles specific to a
“We always take requests,” Kolnick
I have lots of connections. There are lots
of old things floating around.”

Recital to feature classic, nontraditional works
By Emily Wray
Classical music fans will have two
good reasons to start the weekend early.
CA faculty recital and guest artist will
bring their talent to the University of
Nebraska-Lincoln School of Music
Scott Anderson’s trombone and
euphonium performance will be at
Kimball Recital Hall. Christelle Menth,
chairwoman of the music department
at Concordia College, will accompany
Anderson on the piano at the free 8
“Lieder Eines Fahrenden Gesellen”
by Gustav Mahler interests Anderson
the most, he said.
“It’s nontraditional on the trom
bone,” Anderson said.
When he transcribed the piece
about a year ago, taking it from voice
repertoire, the only major change he
made was removing the words.
“It’s really interesting,” he said.
“It’s something I’ve done in the past
and will continue to do.”
Trombonists have to transcribe, or
borrow from other music, because they
don’t have solos from the great com
posers, he said.
“Even though our repertoire is ex
panding, we still don’t have works by
Mahler,” Anderson said. “That’s how
we get them.”
The Mahler transcription works
well, he said, since Mahler had some
strong ideas about his music.
Mahler struggled with being iden
tified as programatic, Anderson said.
People thought that his music needed
the programs he added, while he
thought his music could stand alone.
“I take this even furtherhe said.
“I’m performing them purely as an
absolute melody as an experiment al
though the words are on the program.”
“Concerto” by Nino Rota, an Ital
ian composer, is also on Thursday’s
“Rota is known as a film com
poser,” Anderson said. “I hear that sort
of approach in this concerto. The mu
sic is suggestive of scenes or images.”
Anderson said he prepares for this
type of piece by using his imagination.
This is the same approach he encour
ages his 22 trombone and euphonium
students to take, bringing out ideas of
“The use of very extreme dynam
ics and colors are very effective, even
with the piano accompaniment instead
of orchestra,” Anderson said.
Thursday night’s Concert continues
Anderson’s busy first semester at UNL.
Besides teaching lessons, he conducts
the trombone choir and teaches the
brass skills class, which is a methods
class for music education majors.
Anderson will perform next as a
soloist with the Wind Ensemble on
Guest artist Sergio de los Cobos
also plays Thursday at 5 p.m. The
pianist’s free concert is in room 119 of
the Westbrook Music Building.
The Swiss-born pianist will per
form solo and chamber music. He got
his doctorate from Rice University and
currently teaches in Geneva, Switzer
