ha, I wish! aside from a few deviations, my life's story would be a boring disappointment compared to fellow dissensions who were there at the birth of hardcore, jungle, grime, etc. but thanks for asking.leo are you up for a ‘leo’s life story’ thread?
a zeitgeist-defining tale of growing up in a poor italian-american household in brooklyn, living in the shadow of your ordained older brother as you’re condemned to the menial life of a hardware store assistant; your only respite being new york's burgeoning disco scene.
leo really is like forest gump. not in the disabled sense, but in the way that he was there at all these pivotal historical moments.
he was at the ramones first concert, he lent larry levan $50 to buy records in the early days of paradise garage. he's led an amazing life.
.I used to know khan when he worked at temple records, in the basement of liquid sky. quite a character, funny as hell.
not heard that one but the mythology includes how he worked on a GM assembly line during the day and DJed/made techno on nights and weekends. and the infamous photo of him writing on his white label singles with a handgun close by.Wasn't it him that there was a phone interview and he had to pause it to go and shoot some animal in his garden? Certainly there are a lot of crazy stories about him.
