Quentin Crisp



I used to hang out with Quentin Crisp in NYC. He used to live on Second Avenue, and used to dine at a diner around 4th street. You could call him up and schedule a date to meet. I did this around ten years ago. He died soon after.

I just felt Blonde Redhead had done something very artistic, and it was the best album they have done. Bat For Lashes was the best debut album. A Place To Bury Strangers and Klaxons were close too. LCD Soundsystem and Burial and UNKLE made great records too. And all down the line. Many records I haven't heard yet, so I hesitate to include them here.
