We didn't have a 2021 thread so here is a nice fresh one. To kick things off I'm going to start with, um, a record from 2009? Deathbomb Arc gave this Lauren Bousfield alias a reissue this year, and I've been caning it a lot lately:

Lauren is so awesome!! as in, another rad person IRL who makes cool music. (as table is the table also knows) ...

I still remember her telling this friend, this guy Kevin, they shared a practice space, and Kevin would come to all the shows Lauren's bands and their friends' bands would play, but Kevin was terminally broke so depending on the gig, Kevin would often end up outside the venue because he couldn't afford the cover charge. A lot of the time they'd get Kevin in as a +1 or a roadie or something.

Anyway, at one show in San Francisco, Kevin was outside. He was sitting on the sidewalk, smoking cigarettes, and a person walked past with wild hair that resembled that of one of those Troll Dolls. So Kevin pointed at the person and shouted with a smile, "Troll Doll!" The person was upset. I forget if there was any other drama, but anyway ...

So, back to Lauren. We were all at another show, and Kevin was trying to understand why his friends were somewhat embarrassed by him, and Lauren says, "Kevin, there are out-y thoughts and in-y thoughts. There are thoughts that are okay to think but you just don't say out loud. ... Like shouting Troll Doll at that guy!"

Anyway, I still think about out-y thoughts and in-y thoughts ... and Troll Doll!

Kevin was always extraordinarily kind to me, but lord, he really knows how to get on peoples' shit-lists! T00th and our dear departed J0ey, for two, can't stand the guy. And he is a bit of a prick! But a very funny and kind person, in many ways.

I always had a soft spot for Kevin, tbh ... I heard rumors that he (partly due to a substance abuse issue) was abusive to a romantic partner at one point? And that a number of friends became former friends because of that? ... idk, this was after the Troll Doll incident. I think he's cleaned up a bit and is studying to become a therapist or something.

Kevin was in a great band for a while, Primary Colors, and speaking of weird music:

Experimental industrial noise using homemade trash drumset and broken reel-to-reel and analogue synths.

sarahell, let's just say that when T and I lived next the Church, there was often yelling happening between Kevin and others...because Kevin loved startin shit.

I can imagine! And yeah -- I remember seeing Primary Colors and being like, "Damn! Y'all are really great!"

sarahell, Thursday, 25 March 2021 16:41 (three weeks ago) link

Ahhh, thank you table! Just d/ling now. Having a listen to the Primary Colors youtube and it is pretty cool, I hope Kevin sorted himself out and stopped being a bastard.

Kevin has actually -- I think he sobered up and he's working on becoming a licensed therapist!

Maybe more on the noise/aleatory tip, but some acquaintances put this out, and it's pretty weird.

I'm loving the new compilation tape on A Colourful Storm's sublabel Fleetway Tapes, featuring a bunch of folk from the Aussie underground working under aliases I think. RIYL Carla dal Forno, CS + Kreme, HTRK
