Great buzz altogether down in Fifties, Lijmbeekstraat, in Eindhoven, where meself and himself played last Friday. And huge HUGE thanks to Lena, Lisa, Paul, Jason, Nick, and the other Snor folks (whose names I do not know. Sorry!). It was the best night I’ve been out at in Eindhoven (granted, I haven’t been out much here….). Special thanks to Lena and Lisa who were organising the music – Lisa, in particular, who saw me play in Eindhoven last November and asked me to play on foot of that.
But really, big ups to all!
How long does it take to plug in a record player? Ten months, if you’re me. And counting… But oh, those big shiny black records! And my computer and its fan off!
Dinternet is many things, and it’s great for music – listening, passing it around, etc etc, we’ve all heard it, and it’s all true. Soundcloud is a wonderful thing, Mixcloud too, but. But. But oh, the ever-shrinking attention span. And the computer as the focal point of the room, the jack-of-all-trades. And those beautiful records weeping, abandoned, in their beautiful big sleeves, with their lovely artwork. As for mixing….!! (Yes – records, on the internet.)
Having said that, tonight I was listening to Ilex on Soundcloud. Great stuff!
