Tape Delay: Confessions from the Eighties Underground (1987)



THIS BOOK WAS MY BIBLE!
If your interested in any the the artists listed on the back of this book (above) then I highly recommend buying it. If you already know about the bands then this will be a supplement or just to complete your obsessive collection, if you're just discovering them then this will give you much needed info on the history of these pioneering sub-artists.

My favorite chapter has to be the one about "The Hafler Trio". Great subject on sound and it's effects on the body and mind.

Udate: If you want a hard copy then buy it with link above, or...

I know this book! Read it a couple of years ago. Good stuff. I like that the artists speak for themselves in it.

So glad you read it.
Well before the Interweb, us old timers use to read words that were print on paper, paper - thats so primitive.

Bimble, I have some Simple Minds stuff i gonna post soon.
