Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Options

This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

Avatar Thu. 7/11/19 7:27pm hyde:

@Flash should clarify that i generally mean the late 70's thru the 80's mostly. (the later stuff can be good too but i don't know it as well). kind of any of the Steve Lacys (esp. Morning Joy (Live At Sunset Paris) or Cecil Taylors. There's a great Coe/Oxley record. The many Pauline Oliveros...I like the Franz Koglman LP. And the McPhees.

Basically in the 70's thru the 80's they put out such great records that if I see one I don't have, I generally snap it up.
Avatar Thu. 7/11/19 7:28pm hyde:

(some of these are Hat Art).
Avatar Thu. 7/11/19 7:28pm Flash Strap:

Oh that's right, I forgot about Oliveros! and I definitely have some of their Lacy records but need to complete the set
