Circa 45: Quicksand – Voice Killer


Seven years ago, when I was young(er) and eager (also, dumber), I thought it would be a good idea to keep up with two blogs – this one and something I called Circa 45, a site dedicated solely to digital transfers of my 45/7-inch collection.

My ambition didn’t last long and, well, I eventually let the domain name lapse, and now it’s spam city over there. But the good news is I still have this site, and I still have my records. So why not revive the idea as a weekly (or so) feature?

The bulk of my 45 collection is made up of pop/rock from the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s, thanks to an old Wurlitzer jukebox I took over from my dad. I’ve modernized it a bit with records I previously owned – and ones I continue to buy – and I swear one day I’ll finish cataloging all of them into one glorious spreadsheet.

As it stands, they’re mostly cleaned up, alphabetized and stored in boxes. I’ve been picking through a few loose ends and recent purchases, like this 7-inch for “Divorce” (purchased at The Record Room) from post-hardcore faves Quicksand.

“Divorce” appears on 1995′s Manic Compression, Quicksand’s second (and, sadly, final) album. This 7-inch was a 1994 promo – pressed on a strangely thin record, as noted here, only slightly sturdier than one of those flexi-discs – with the unreleased B-side “Voice Killer,” a song so good you have to wonder what other gems a band in its prime left on the cutting-room floor.

  1. Ok, here is the problem As shown in the eqoiuatn below, nitrogen oxide, NO, is common pollutant that is produced by the reaction of nitrogen and oxygen gases. Since these gases are the major components of air, nitrogen oxideresults when air is heated in furnaces, motor engine cylinders, or other high temperature combustion areas. N2 (g) + O2 (g) 2 NO (g)A. Given that the standard enthalpy of formation for NO2 (g) is 90.25 KJ/mole and using the absolute entropies listed below, calculate the free energy change for this reaction at 25 degrees celcius. Is this reaction product favores at 25 degrees celcius? Absolute entropiesN2 (g) 191.5 J/mol times K O2 (g) 205.0 J/mole times KNO (g) 210.7 J/mol times KB. If the reaction is not product-favored at 25 degrees celcius, determine under what conditions it would be product favored.Show ALL work.Thanks for any help I can get!
