One of the world’s most fantastic arts & vinyl men, mesdames et messieurs it’s Christian Marclay! Also: check his clever “Footsteps” project + lp on RecRec (rec. 1988, rel. 1989)! Full story here: http://www.futureshipwreck.com/2011/04/record-on-the-floor-christian-marclays-footsteps/ + have a look inside Phaidon’s book on Marclay here (2005, ISBN 9780714843742) ànd enjoy Rob Young’s 2005 interview too while you’re at it, parbleu!

From Switzerland / Svizzera / la Suisse / die Schweiz: it’s Starter! Their (untitled) debut lp (recorded in Bern in 1981) has just been reprinted by Dark Entries (who have a very impractical site), cat. no. DE-016. Should you buy their reissue, see to it you get the A4 inlay ànd the badge too. Main reasons for purchase: “Lunapark” by the original Francis Foss + Claudine Chirac + Jet Harbour line-up, and the lone bonus track by the Foss & Gray duo “Victim” (1985) … plus the interview below, perhaps. Also, I’m guessing Starter’s “Tanger” (co-written by Stephan Eicher) is where current Swiss act What’s Wrong With Us? got their name from … (Curious for thèir new album “Not Enough“, incidentally.)
