I went on quite a rant last time out, so I'll try to keep this entry mostly positive. Let's try some remembrances. This Loop record featured in the program brings me back to a simpler, more active time. Back in this period I would walk or bike my way through my problems, instead of eating and drinking my way through them. Apparently I had a lot of free time and not much food or drink. I would frequently have on my Walkman, because that's what we had in those days. Undoubtedly the music I listened to was loud, repetitive, and not-complex, whether it was self-made or other-made. I highly recommend this as a cheap and valuable therapy. I am after all a doctor.
Also, this Loop record (to which I once again do not do justice, although I guess there's always the imminent "Festival of Evidence" to rectify things) kind of reminds me of one particular turning point in history at which I decided I just "didn't get" where music was going. These people and Spacemen 3 were a really nice alternative in the late 1980s to the Seattle scene, and Wax Trax, and that god-awful "Acid House" coming from England. Just play one chord, run it through a fuzz/wah or a "repeat percussion," and repeat. Forever.
I prefer this, by the way, over Main and the other things Robert Hampson has done since. There is a Legend (to be precise, someone who could easily be a legend if they would just answer their damn email) with whom I would love to discuss this particular topic: the notion that sometimes you start out great and don't need to "develop." But that's for another day.
