Magnetic Fields' 69 Love Songs
This book makes me thing of three things:1. LD Beghtol is extremely pretentious, which isn’t always a bad thing2. This book could have used a strong editor3. It contained a lot of nerdy Mag Fields factsNow I know that Stephin Merritt instructed
w I know that Stephin Merritt instructed the rest of the band that “It’s A Crime” was recorded with the phrase “Swedish reggae” constantly in mind, and that there’s a staggering number of statistics web-sites available solely built because some listeners of “69 Love Songs” were…a little too interested.
End result: cool for music trivia trainspotters like myself, but extremely demanding considering Beghtol’s pretentious style of writing and collating stats.
