Pitchfork reviews Loren Mazzacane-Connors: I only have one solo Connors album (9th Avenue), and one of his fine collaborations with Keiji Haino, but both discs get a fair bit of play from me still. Al Shipley writes an interesting review, though as with most reissues of obscure stuff by obscure artists, Connors gets painted as a bit of a wild and lost outsider figure. On the breadline and unrecognised though he certainly was, I suspect the less romantic truth is that Connors was just another one of the thousands of drifting musicians making their own records and tapes on the industry’s edge, albeit a very talented one. All this “unchosen muse” stuff is very nice, but perhaps gets a little bit in the way of understanding the music.
