    God save me from over-self-absorbed young prat musicians. I'm sure all the Italians of the late thirties would completely peg Fripp and Mussolini as peas in a pod.
    Well, it's a bit the same thing Christian von Grumbkow (Hoelderlin) said about Eloy.

I know Luis Andriessen was once apparently a fan, I just somehow can't imagine the guy tutoring at PowerPoint before a gathering of Kobaďan half-goblins in the audience.
    Louis Andriessen was a Magma fan?
    I can imagine that from his music, but where did you read that?

    Did he peddle the same antisemitic crap that Haskell did in that quote?
    No matter what anyone says, you are the decider of how you will listen to music.

    No that not, he just compared Eloy with having a kind of fascist esthetic.

    LOL Eloy as fascists. Sounds like a bitter musician who was jealous of another band's greater success.

    Not as fascists, but as a kind of fascist esthetic, which is a bit different.
