Rad! My wife read Just Kids a few years back and really dug it. She came to it through the Robert Mapplethorpe / photographic side of its story. My dad gifted me the Nuggets cd boxed set a couple of decades ago and it showed up as I was starting to re-explore the fuzzy sounds of my youth. I was very lucky to be around a lot of radio people when I was a kid in the 80s and grew up listening to Clyde Clifford's Beaker Street radio show. LOOK IT UP! Nuggets also kicked off some deep Todd Rundgren / Emmit Rhodes / 13th Floor Elevators / Sagittarius studying thanks to their inclusion on those cds. It definitely helped create some context for why I was so naturally drawn to the music of Broadcast, Thee Oh Sees, and Dungen in the early 2000s. Ok, now I'm gonna go pull out the boxed set Thanks!
