virginso i was watching boyz II men’s tep 20 R&B ballads of all time on TFM, and one of them was janet jackson’s odd, low-key sexmumble of a song, “any time any place”, and in the video there was a vinyl record playing on the turntable, and — unless i am mistaken — on the disc was the roger dean virgin logo, from the very early 70s

and it was spinning and not in focus so i couldn’t see what the record was — nevertheless, the portal takes you somewhere fairly curious: “likely” LPs for JJ to be seducin wiv apparently include Mike Oldfield‘s Tubular Bells, Tangerine Dream‘s Phaedra, The Faust Tapes, Faust IV, and — and this is my secret hope — Gong’s Flying Teapot (Radio Gnome Invisible, Pt. 1)

    There’s a definite kinship between parts of The Faust Tapes and side one of Control (esp. “Nasty”: Jam & Lewis influenced by Art of Noise influenced by Faust) and I am NOT making this up!

    i interviewed jam and lewis once! it was for wire, and if i’d got them talkin abt FAUST it wd have been the crown of my career i think!

    haha of that list it remains the LP i wd least like to be seduced to, viz:

    1. teapot obv
    2. phaedra
    3. F-IV
    4. TubBell
    5. F-tapes
