Jarre's Eclectic Electic Music

Jim Sullivan, Sweet Potato, March 1979

I've lone been a sucker for this kind of twaddle; I'll spend entire evenings with headphones on, nodding rhythmically and smiling peaceably to the likes of Tangerine Dream, Michael Hoenig, or Brian Eno's more experimental side.
