- finally got around to downloading the available john oswald material on the web.
this is my
introduction to his stuff. really, quite interesting. i started with the
Rubiyat EP. some of his
stuff has what i consider to be simple generic shtick appeal, but there are
serious moments of pure
brilliance involved. i'm really fascinated with the tim buckley reconstruction
i also just listened to the capt. beefheart mix "replica." it's funny, but if i

i guess, for me,
don's work is just so cut-up, disjointed, and brilliantly dischordant that
there's not much you can
do to deconstruct it. i'd like to see oswald attempt something like an oval
that said, where have the 168 people on this list gone? maybe we should run
"recently bought/acquired" tread, or else start up the old gender debate again
(anna?) - ..(btw, i'm
only kidding about that)
hope all is well in your area.
