February 8 2017 @ 7:11 am

"All at once, she tried to gather all of her audience inside herself, settling for nothing less: squeezing her voice dry, her arms pumping, her hands in fists. She stumbled back from the microphone, as if at the rate of her and her band's own decibel volume.

That is what couldn't be heard on record." - The Guardian, 1970
