The Electric Current has No Memory

In 1968 I was 18 years old and living in a city in Amerika, as described by William Gibson:

“This city had no specific locale, and its internal geography was mainly fluid. Its in­habitants nonetheless knew, at any given instant, whether they were
in the city or in America. The city was largely invisible to America. If
America was about "home" and "work," the city was about neither,
and that made the city very difficult for America to see. There may
have been those who wished to enter that city, having glimpsed it in
the distance, but who found themselves baffled, and turned back.
Many others, myself included, rounded a corner one day and found it
spread before them, a territory of inexpressible possibilities, a place
remembered from no dream at all. We would find that there were rules
there as well, but they would be different rules.”

It’s now 2018 and I am 68, I miss that city so deeply, and wish that you all could have lived there with me,  the only time I even get a glimpse of it now,  is when I stand bathed in the sonic modulations of the electric current. It’s the only gift I have anymore to give you and I invite you to share it with me once again in the backroom at Union Pool on my birthday Friday March 23. ( The title is from Roland Kayn)

Artists & Fleas opened its second daily location in New York City in Soho this May bringing the best of independent art, design, fashion, vintage and more in a dynamic marketplace setting in the center of Soho. I spin a progressive and eclectic mix in the heart of Soho. In addition to the main space, there is a large pop up space with a constantly shifting set of fashion, art, yoga and other events.

Artists & Fleas: Williamsburg

THe original Artists & Fleas venue in Williamsburg provides a space for a local art, design, fashion, vintage and artisanal food vendors in the heart of the Northside. Recent additions to the vendor roster include Paper Plane Coffee and Strand Books. Most Saturday afternoons I provide a wide ranging soundtrack of great tracks to augment your visit. It's a fun place to shop or people watch and also has one of the better vintage record booths in NYC.
