2. It took three or four years, and it would not be bold to assert that the nucleus had its start with Madarieta or Jasper Pierce; they themselves didn’t know how at some moment, over drinks with friends after the movies, things were said or left unsaid that suddenly would form the alliance, what afterward we all called the nucleus and the younger ones the club. There was nothing of a club about it, we simply loved Plastic Crimewave, and that was enough to set us apart from those who only admired him. Just like them, we admired Plastic Crimewave too, and also Kawabata, Mizutani, Asahito, Göttsching, and why not Ethan Miller, Hideki, Daevid or Paul Allen, but only we loved Plastic Crimewave so much, and the nucleus was formed because of that and out of that, it was something that only we knew, and we trusted in those who all during our conversations had shown little by little that they loved Plastic Crimewave too. –Julio Cortázar, “We Love Glenda So Much” (revised)
Today’s show is the first in a multi-part series dedicated to Plastic Crimewave in all it’s formations! What coheres the series is, of course, the great psychedelic guru we all love, Steve Krakow! The series will proceed more or less in chronological order and the last show in the series will have some Spiral Galaxy! The best thing you can do for yourself is to go deep on all things Plastic Crimewave. Turn on. Tune in. FreakOut! Buy some Galactic Zoo Dossier from Drag City and do your best to listen to all Mr. Krakow’s Galactic Zoo Tape Club!
