I really love diamons, they drives me crazy crazy, i think if a man came to me with a diamond ring i could give him all my heart, and i decided to read this blog because it seemed very interesting and wonderful.

This compilation is one of my favourite of the 1980's.

I met John Giorno and talked about his releases et his label...
Very interesting to discover "Spoken Words" and AvantGarde music...

I liked especially Coil and Cabaret Voltaire. In september there's an exhibition with Keith Harring. I hope it will be there and they play some of the songs
