Stories from the Nerve Bible: A Twenty-Year Retrospective

Stories from the Nerve Bible: A Retrospective, 1972-1992 - Laurie Anderson
Seeing her 1995 show remains a high point of concert-going for me. It was the whole shebang -- as melodic as it was discordant, with all the performance-art pieces and parts, like a postmodern one-woman symphony and revue, and I for one love the romance of her Strange Angels stage, hard-asses be damned. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about the creative processes of this contentiously brilliant woman and browsing her photo album. Even if you've never heard of her, I recommend it if you're curious about how great musical minds work.
