The blurb at the Manchester site doesn't mention Italo Calvino, but it's obviously based on the book of the same name: mif.co.uk/whats-on/invisible-cities/

adam bryanbaum wiltzies contribution to an old Talk Talk book by James Marsh. 

“This memory is forever tattooed on my cerebellum. It was a week after my birthday, September 1988. I was on my way to go record-shopping at The Candyman record store in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I was flipping through the ‘new’ bin and came across a copy of ‘Spirit of Eden’ on vinyl. When I returned home I put it on, it was one of those few moments in life where you stare at the record player in complete bemusement. What is this music?

Hearing that three-song suite on the first side for the first time was, as I believe a wise man once uttered, “ like I was shot with a diamond bullet right through my forehead.” Although I can imagine the innumerable hordes would never see the connection, it was essentially an incoherent catalyst for the early Stars of the Lid rumblings, multiple suites connecting through one song that would go on forever. There is just a sullen atmosphere in those recordings that I have concluded, in one way or another, changed my life, or at least the way my ears perceive it.”

I've been listening to this one for ages. Never get enough of it. What a loss!

I've had Laughing Stock on repeat and don't see that changing any time soon.

I remember when you turned me on to this album. It never gets old.

A really sad day.

Only listened to his solo album on Sunday wishing more music would one day be released. A real true musical genius

The most anticipated album of the year for me. Maybe, in between one of those beer breaks, Dustin O'Halloran or someone working for him at Topspin Media might be able to reply to my requests about the failed downloads from his website?

How long have you been recording this for now? 😮 I'm probably not the only one dying to hear some of it already!?

YESSSSSSSSSS

Have fun and good luck! Really looking forward to what's in store!
