My Mylene Sheath addiction came to fruition in the last few weeks--taking the plunge into collecting some vinyl after not having any for > 20 years.
some bruddah's who have been selling me their Mylene dupes and teaching me the ropes (expensive lesson -hA!) invited me to come over here and apply for adoption into the family.
You know who you are, so I won't name any names yet.
Short intro is that being an old prog nerd (and burned out playing classic rock for fun) by the late 80s it was difficult to find much secular music worth the effort.
So I plunged into work and family, blessed with wife and 4 wonderful kids, the older 2 loving music...and a student loaned me Sigur Ros ( ) a few years ago... which led to hearing about something called "postrock" ... my daugther loved it... everyone else said, "Dad's weird music."
Which led to the ATPR forum, Beware of Safety was planning a tour... so checked them out... which led to this site, and listened to every single band, loving many of them and buying mp3s and CDs.
So here I am... have placed a preorder for Caspian repress, a couple of other orders, and one bruddah promised to help this old man get in on GFE next month!
Our oldest plays guitar,too, and is willing to drive me (long story) to Harrisonburg VA to see GFE at the Blue Nile in a month or so!! (we just made a road trip to see Russian Circles last week--my first concert in decades, ears still ringing). He loves RC but is really starting to get into GFE and ITTCT--his roommate at college plays drums and is totally addicted to AtE,BtS right now!!
Well, that's enough, prob. too much, so I put my application in...
