Most of the time, unless you have had a specific experience, you can't make judgments about what someone else having that experience conducts themselves. But at the same time, if you've had the experience, it teaches you that you can't judge anyway. I certainly had heard Still by Joy Division--and that awful moment in the live set where the keyboard runs out of batteries, or whatever happens to it--before I was in a band. But having been onstage while things went catastrophically wrong, I can no longer remember what I thought about that passage before. I only have access to what I think when I hear it now--"yes, that's a real thing." No doubt the Preston record is a similar listening experience, and probably will be for you, and is probably metaphoric w/ regard to the sloppiness of this program.
Thankfully it's been long enough since I listened to it that I can't identify the specific things that went wrong, but I'm sure they are still evident, if I wasn't so embarrassed as to cut them out. I don't think we've reached that point yet in our run of January programs, but I can promise you it's coming. I can say that the Senior Catharses were quite complimentary about this program, though. I suppose that's because of the Rootsman and Celtarabia, which is as good a guess as any.
