  • Music:

el hombre invisible

an excellent album that disappeared from my life 10 years ago has been found and arrived here from canada yesterday. i have been searching for it for years- "Manapsara/Queer- a soundtrack to a novel by William S Burroughs " on the more than fabulous Sub Rosa label.( what WAS it about belgium in the late 1980's? they had it so going on and a bag o' chips.) clearly, it's been out of print almost from the instant it was released. magical stuff. music with a purpose. telling a story. music like a novel, unfolding. an emotive, almost subtle industrial dream.

seems too much to ask nowadays, although it's scarcity proves how under appreciated it was at the time.

some things you are never going to find on itunes....
