Comments: Minimally Musical

Hmmm. This is getting weird. You're into Dr. Who. You went to UT music school. You respect Glass and saw the "Emporer's New Clothes" effect of atonal music. We both like Jimmy Smith and are keyboard players. Are you old enough to have heard the Electro Magnets live, or visit the Armadillo?

You tell me... I was at UT from 1986 through 1991. I saw Doctors Mob, Zeitgeist (later known as the Reavers), Glass Eye, The Texas Instruments, and other such at clubs like the Continental Club, Liberty Lunch, and the Cave Club. I didn't play live much at all (I played one gig at the Thundercloud Subs on Riverside and another at the Black Cat on 6th Street). Most of my playing was classical. I don't remember the Electro Magnets, and I know I didn't visit the Armadillo.

Guess I was a little before your time - Ok maybe a lot, 73-77. Electromagnets was Eric Johnson's first notable band, BTW. I moved to big D in 80 and just returned to the area last year.

I have the soundtrack Glass did with the Kronos Quartet for the old Dracula, and like it a lot. I'm no classical music buff, but its simple, emotive tracks are my sort of thing.
