„CDs are the best format in the sense that they are so worthless as physical objects“

Perlentaucher fasst ein Interview mit dem Musiker Prurient zusammen:

Steven T. Hanley (The Quietusunterhält sich mit dem Musiker Prurient, der dem nostalgischen Vinylhype schon zu Zeiten misstraute, als er noch in einem Plattenladen arbeitete. Sein Standpunkt lässt sich eigentlich auch gut gegen die Streamingkritik in Position bringen: „I actually see it as very materialistic … When I had a store in the East Village many times someone would come in and ask ‚do you have  this record?‘ I say ’sure‘ and hand them the CD and they say ‚oh no, I only buy vinyl‘ and I say ‚well that’s your loss then, you’re missing out on this whole enormous spectrum of ideas.‘ Personally I think CDs are the best format in the sense that they are so worthless as physical objects. You really just have to be confronted with the subject matter and the music itself. There’s no kind of material value.“
