Blaine L. Reininger & Steven Brown – 1890 – 1990: One Hundred Years Of Music
I don't listen to music ever. Too many voices in my head. Unless suddenly I'm in the mood and then I'll go for one or two songs as loud as possible and then that's it. But when I find something I get pretty obsessed and then I will play it until it runs out and that's it. It's kinda like a book, except it only lasts for 30 minutes. I'm reading between the lines of the record. Yeah, I'm obsessive and this is something to get obsessive about. This is an album that was made by two of the guys from Tuxedomoon and recorded live in Lisbon, Portugal. This is beautiful, absolutely gorgeous. It's probably one extreme of things I like. The other extreme is gunshots. They both calm me down.
