Mats Gustafsson Interview about Record Collecting

English: Mats Gustafsson, moers festival

Via The Wire.

“I want to get buried in a vinyl coffin, made from my collection. Viking burial style!” Mats Gustafsson has been a key player in improvised music for over three decades, and when he hasn’t been picking up a saxophone, he’s been picking up records. In the spirit of giving something back, his website has for several years now been running a regular Discaholic’s Corner, where Gustafsson interviews fellow obsessives to understand and invesitgate the life of the collector. A new book, Mats Gustafsson’s Discaholics! Record Collector Confessions Volume 1 now collects ten of these interviews, with renowned music heads and archivists including Henry Rollins, Oren Ambarchi, Robert Crumb, Thurston Moore, The Wire’s Byron Coley and Brian Morton, and more.

La Monte Young in New York Reviewed

Via Medium.

On October 14th, La Monte Young played at the Dream House, 275 Church Street, in the building where he and his wife and collaborator Marian Zazeela live. It was his 82nd birthday. By 9pm a small crowd had gathered in the street outside, under scaffolding outside bars and pizza restaurants. Aside from one older guy with orange robes and long white hair, they were young-ish and student-bohemian-ish.
