I had a similar relationship to the musics of the Residents and Ornette Coleman, respectively: two artists who, the first time I heard them, made me think "My God, why would anybody listen to this for PLEASURE?" Now, of course, I'm doing a track-by-track study of Coleman's discography and writing a book about Ralph Records.

A good advertisement for the benefits of putting real work into challenging music, no?
