he plays walk on the wild side and the entirety of tvu w/nico at every show. the latter being the reason for all of these full album performance shows of late. the chance to kick julian schnabel in the nuts alone is worth the $50

10:47 - you are a moron!

10:56 - you understand so little about the aforementioned artists that it pains me to know that you think you can be sarcastic.


Threadgill = genius

John Zorn sounds like cats being beaten.
In a bad way.
