Thanks for this one John. When I listen to BLT I am thirty, skinny, and happy again. And whatever became of Robert Longo anyway?

Douglas- Same here but I'm 29…forever. Longo, holy smokes, I admit ignorance but looked him up and love his stuff. I remember seeing a lot of this in NYC in the '80s. He's got a show at Petzel Gallery in NYC but it closes tomorrow.

John,
Thanks for that link. I look at some of the people who worked on New Order projects and I am always impressed. Longo, Peter Saville, Jon Demme, Philippe DecouflĂ©, William Wegman, quite a bunch! If success opens the doors to be able to hire these folks, good taste,confidence, and willingness to take a risk moves one to actually do so. Despite having the collective image of cold oatmeal, this was a band of sharp and talented folks. I am pretty sure I first heard BLT at Revival on 3rd street in Philadelphia. Remember doing my drunken doofus dance with a cool girl and when we heard the high “lead bass” solo on the song fade we stopped dancing and smiled, knowing we had just experience something pretty darn rare. John we are OLD.
