Bill Laswell / Material

Been listening to Material's classic tune 'Over and Over' (Celluloid, 1981) recently. The iconic musician / bassist Bill Laswell co-founded the experimental, punk, funk, electro NYC group Material along with keyboardist Michael Beinhorn in 1978.
Speaking of Michael Beinhorn, here's a timeless Beinhorn quote from a David Fricke penned 'Melody Maker' piece on Material from 11/28/81: "We completely confuse people and they think that's one of the most wonderful things about us. We move ahead. Fuck them if they're still in the same space where we were yesterday."
