Ummm, yeah. 2010.
Another year. Lots of listenings. Didn’t go to as many shows as I wanted to. Didn’t write that entry about Uncle Sleazy and how his music not only helped shape my sonic aethetics, but how it all inspired my writing (particularly in the autumn of 1990). I would’ve driven long distances and paid good money to see Coil live. I could’ve passed him on the streets of Bangkok last April. I suck.
