going all the way back to 1988 with this one.
Nick: oooooh, was I even alive then?
what, may I ask was miles davis doing there?
probably shooting heroin into his thigh or something.
could well be, but it sounds like he’s playing doesn’t it?
this is brilliant, 1988? when did ‘hair’ come out?
60’s? 70’s? I dunno. you compare a lot of things to ‘hair’.
do I? have I done it before? I wasn’t aware of that.
maybe not here but… you do mention ‘hair’ quite a bit.
well it made a big impression at the time.
why haven’t I heard of this before?
don’t ask me.
well who should I ask?
it has touches of the more contemplative miles davis and I know this sounds like an impossibility but it sounds like we’re listening to a mark rothko painting.
all I can say is sheer genius.
but what if this was all just luck? were they just messing about?
as far as I know the recording process was a very drawn out, arduous slog, recorded mostly in the dark, throwing out miles and miles of tape for no reason other than it not being ‘perfect’.
well I thought as much, it all sounds deliberate enough.
I can’t say anything more, this is just brilliant, beautiful, eat your hearts out everybody.
What he said!
