September 10, 2018: I believe that everyone is entitled to one or two irrational fears in life, and mine are driving and dancing. But that didn’t prevent me from reading and writing about Vince Aletti’s The Disco Files 1973–78: New York’s Underground, Week by Week; it’s on the verge of being reissued, but my piece is out now in L’Officiel number four (September/October). (Sorry: It’s not online. But it’s out there.) Vince was nice enough to let me interview him about his book, which is a tremendous artifact of a scene that was radical in a way that never occurred to me back when I was a dumb-ass kid.
