It's little things. Like someone you don't know sending you a tape just because they think you might like it. That's the very concise scenario that leads up to today's post...I posted a demo from an old band, and one of the people from the band sent me this tape along with several unreleased recordings from their band. One side titled Terry Riley 1974, and Hideous In Strength 1984 on the other. Riley is well known, and one needs only to search affiliated and associated acts (SLEEP CHAMBER, Inner-X) to know that HIDEOUS IN STRENGTH deserves attention. All hail packages in the mail...it may not be the same as the old days...but we're still here.
