Do you like Bowie's taste /mu/?
it talks about him having to get them on cd. this list probably came out in the 80s. partch, wyatt, reich, branca
his taste is better than i expected from the king of normies
What rational reason do you have for your ISB hate?
shame his taste for art music never (or at least rarely) showed in his own work. robert wyatt i hear charismatic black guys like gil scott heron i see. branca? bryars? adams? reich? nope
The list is from 2006, but I've never seen the top paragraphs before, don't know where they come from, this is from the original article:
"It seems to me that the hardest part of collecting sounds, in whatever format, is, after a few years, deciding which ones to keep and which ones to give away. I can't ever make those decisions so I therefore never get rid of anything. I no longer live in my house as there's no room left between the boxes of CDs, 45s, cassettes, and of course my vinyl albums, for me to get on with other life matters. Sounds won.
To be brief and to the point, I've often been asked for some of my first faves, most from many years ago (the discs not the requests) but these very special vinyls had a particular telling effect on how I would collect and listen to music in the years to come. This is an old list and has been around a bit but you may not have seen it so it gives me great pleasure to re-represent it one mo' time. Here are 25 to start with. I may do another 25 to keep a pattern going if you like. Enjoy."
not wrong. there are many better isb-like bands. wouldnt really listen to them but cant consider them THAT bad. 5/10 stuff from them. catchy accessible billboard charting versions of much better 60s/70s folk rock
Why don't you listen to them on youtube as you're going through? I got 9 albums out of the whole thing, and there were 3 that I already knew. That's a really high concentration of enjoyable albums for me.
He has virtually impeccable taste. I can't fault him for a single choice, they're all unique picks from a guy passionate and knowledgeable about music, and they all represent him in some form or another. This is a much better list than his 100 favorite books.
