10/25/2003: "hah!"

Suggestion for Simon's prog chart: Whitehouse! Apparently William Bennett is a total Yes-head. Or so it says in Forced Exposure #17 dated 1991, in an article by Steve Albini. Quote:

Whitehouse "Thank Your Lucky Stars" 45 and LP: William Bennett can effortlessly play almost any Yes song you could be pained to mention on Spanish guitar. I shit you not. Each of the songs Whitehouse recorded was structurally mapped by a famous heavy metal song. So much so, in fact, that all Bennett used as a headphone cue was a cassette recording of whichever Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden or Deep Purple song the track was based on. Tidbit -- three guesses which later-famous synthesizer guy that is on the back of that Prag Vec record you haven't listened to since 1980. Ding! Give that man a banana. Fee: $600.

Wow. If the italp-disco thing is true, maybe whitehouse aren't the steaming pile of shit I always thought they were.

I recently heard Whitehouse perform an epic italio-disco set under the name William Benitto.
