#1 Tiny bit of fame ( via R Seiliog )

Post by IslandPink »

Closest to musical fame I'll ever get ! :D

"Robin: Yep. It’s bands like CAN, Harmonia, La Düsseldorf, NEU, Popol Vuh, Cluster, Kraftwerk, Faust… There’s so much incredible music from that short window of time that just resonates with me. CAN’s 'Tago Mago’ was playing just now, and to me it’s totally timeless..

As a teenager I was obsessed with a band called Slint; and a friend of my father, Mark Jeffs (who also took the photograph that's on the In Hz LP) gave me a copy of Tago Mago, which I still associate, or pair with Slint’s ‘Spiderland’ "

I'd have to say I count myself lucky that he hadn't already come across Tago Mago. He already seemed to be well-versed in all the great 60's / 70's stuff that we like, by the time he started recording stuff in Cardiff.
