We've been cleaning out our shed and Jake found a tub of old cassettes. Hiroshima's Los Angeles was one of the tapes. I was introduced to Hiroshima in the early 80's with the album Dada. Here from 1994 is "Only Love" brought to you by Canal de leandorassiz and Youtube. It's very relaxing.
SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT...
"Its strangeness seemed to trigger in me the same primordial feeling of throwness that every negro experiences when hurled into a society that simultaneously supports and, I am saying, annihilates him, because he can find reflections of himself nowhere in it - like a falcon exiled, say, to the Lifeworld of fish, always off balance, but finally embracing the alien in all its otherness, yet never sure if he's got it right.”
From The Sorcerer's Apprentice by Charles R. Johnson. The quote is from the short story "Popper's Disease" on page 134 of the Penguin softcover.
