My Alibis, #1

"There's a flat, filled droniness to it that I've personally thrilling since I first heard Tangerine Dream as a fourteen-year-old - I think hearing Tangerine Dream meant I didn't lose my virginity for many, many years, because their music, and the music it led me to listen to, seemed like the most sexual experience you could expect from life."
--Paul Morley, Words And Music.

(Not quite true, but I think my copy of Zeit is still in a CD rack somewhere in the house. I haven't listened to it for years (like Morley with Phaedra), and for me the requisite mind/loin-bending album was most probably The Velvet Underground And Nico, but the sentiment still stands.)
