It's funny, I'm not the biggest fan of Prurient, but I love Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement, and Vatican Shadow is kind of monotonous to me but the Allessandro Cortini remix is hopped up in a good way! I either love or dislike Dominick Fernow's work

@ParUbi: Most of his work of Howie's I have is all tape collage in the Merzbow direction of sound (But different means to achieve it). However, he has more recently gone a more spacey loopey direction, but still mostly analogue.

is the street montegut in New Orleans pronounced the French way or the English way?
Avatar 11:28pm JakeGould:

The image of Tom Verlaine that sticks in my mind is Richard Hell (in his bio) writing about how he accidentally bumped into Tom in front if the Strand on 12th Street in the Village. He was looking through the bargain bin carts and Richard was baffled as why he would be rummaging through those books that were (are) truly trash and crap books.

Avatar 11:38pm mariano:

@yippie: That's the way I've heard it, but I grew up Uptown. Two other ones that trip people up are Poeyfarre and Tchoupitoulas. Then there's a town in north Louisiana, Natchitoches, that nobody can pronounce without having heard it first. @Hubig: Lol - and Bur-GUN-dy St!
