  • Didn't Xenakis die a la Michael Hutchence? And Luciano Berio's taste for debauchery was well known long before he had that hot dose. Best of all was Messiaen, who tried to ingest smack anally using a dead Pope as a suppository. ______________________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________________ Message: 4...

The entire look and feel of the mag was one of a cold unyielding humourless PC-ness that lives in a dead- eyed city. Dunno how much my own...

  • Hmm, am struck by fact that 2 years after my 'Wire' subscription lapses the four charts submitted so far contain barely three names I even recognise as having come across before... Who are THE drop-names/scenes in its pages these days? MInd you the mag had already lost my heart to this situation (not quite so pronounced then) long before they lost my account. Only thing released...

  • Strange to see 'On Land' cited by a few folk as crucial to their development - I've never heard it praised by any of the self-appointed critics, even Eno himself doesn't seem to have much realised what he'd done, apparently preferring for example to do crap synthesised facsimiles of church bells. Nearly a year since I've read 'Wire' mag itself. Rob Young still there? Still full of...
