...............6 6 6
I don’t know if any of you is aware that tomorrow is a special date. It’s the sixth day of the sixth month of year six. Actually it’s 2006, so I personally don’t pay that much attention, but it still makes a funny combination of numbers *.
What kind of sounds go with these numbers? Apart from the easy pick for horror and thrillers (no it isn’t Halloween right now) I can only think of one sound that could do justice to a certain sense of discomfort. I’m listening to Trout Mask Replica for years now (no not constantly, thank you) and I still find it disturbingly beautiful. Other people think I’m nuts but it grows on ya. It’s truly a real piece of Art. So totally out of tune with the times in which it was conceived (the sixties) and still right at yer face. The man who was responsibly for all this Captain Beefheart kept producing highly original recordings untill the eighties and now he makes a living painting pictures under his real name Don van Vliet.
