Vista Standards

While drilling holes into records, Colin Tappe talks about Standards, a record store he is preparing to open in Vista on February 4th.

"I just wanna' do something for North County. That's where I am, and I like it here. I'm just a suburban kind of guy, you know," he tells me as we chat in the half-prepared shop.

Tappe, who commuted to his job at Radiation Records in Anaheim for a year, plans to enrich the cultural landscape of Vista, instead of abandoning it the way he's seen so many do over the years.

"There's a tendency for interesting people to get the fuck out of North County as soon as they possibly can." In contrast, Tappe is investing in a spot he sees as an interesting hub of sorts — near a restaurant called the Yellow Deli, where he has seen Renaissance Fair attendees, Tea Partiers, and band nerds.

While a record by a metal band named Darkxom plays over the freshly installed stereo system, Tappe explains the record store's name.

"The idea is to stock the standards. If we're talking punk music, then were talking Sex Pistols, Discharge... If we're talking jazz music were talking Ornette Coleman, Miles Davis... If we're talking reggae we're talking, you know, Peter Tosh, Bob Marley — stuff you would expect to find."

Among other acquisitions, Tappe purchased the record collection owned by Joe Denunzio, vocalist of hardcore band Infest, which disbanded in the mid '90s. Tappe says he isn't taking pre-orders or listing the collection online, so if you want a good crack at those records, you have to physically come in opening day.

In addition to new and used records, the store will be selling new shirts of old bands, and as the recently painted sandwich-board reads, they are "always buying: records, CDs, video games, DVDs, turntables..."

"I've been getting an incredible amount of positive energy from this... I've never experienced this sort of outpour of positivity... I need all the help I can get. People just put out positive energy — I'll take it and manifest it, and hopefully give it back in the form of good music."

Standards is located at 216 E. Broadway, Vista, CA. 92084.

Opening day is February 4th at noon.

Live performances by Waco Fuck and Adult Crash (members of Amenity) begin at 8PM. No cover charge.

Tappe says if the show runs smoothly, there may be other in-store shows in the future. That is, so long as people are respectful of the local businesses, don't fight or drink and bring the cops.
