Vincent Gallo

Posted: October 4th, 2001, by Simon Minter

i’m feeling weak and fragile after possibly my worst day at work since i started there four years ago. so, i’ve got the vincent gallo album on warp records to listen to and i gotta say it’s the most exquisite, beautiful, touching, personal and artistic record i’ve heard in a long time. from the elaborate book-style packaging onwards it seems clear that vincent, or mr gallo to me, should be friends with all of us.

and if you haven’t seen buffalo ’66 yet, either, then that’s this week’s movie go see tip!

Simon Minter

Simon joined diskant after falling on his head from a great height. A diskant legend in his own lifetime Simon has risen up the ranks through a mixture of foolhardiness and wit. When not breaking musical barriers with top pop combo Sunnyvale Noise Sub-element or releasing records in preposterously exciting packaging he relaxes by looking like Steve Albini.
