Excavated Shellac

Ten years. I think now that we’ve reached ten years of Excavated Shellac, why not experiment with a new look, instead of something that reeks of 2007. I’d like to say something, but I won’t wax rhapsodic, or take some fond look back. I feel guilty enough for the slow posts. Plus, I think I’ve already done enough of that periodically, and really, the most important thing is that it keeps going.

Excavated Shellac speaks for itself. As a 78-related site, it was more or less the first of its kind: focusing solely on global vernacular and traditional music.

“The New Word” by Allen Upward – Scientology (c) 1908


“In 1938 I codified certain axioms and phenomena into what I called ‘Scientology.’  said L Ron Hubbard in  the pre-1978 Red “Tech” Volumes on page 3.


“This is not science, but only scientology. It is language. It is the magic lullabye in which the shapes of things melt and reshape themselves forever”

“And unhappily, Scientology is often mistaken for science as theology is for worship”

“We distinguished between science and scientology”
