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.
