TVD Premiere:
My Darling Fury,
“Blots in the Margins”

“Some of my earliest memories of listening to vinyl are due in part to my father’s collecting of Ventures albums.”

“As a kid, I loved flipping through all of them to see the cover art on each album. I developed favorite songs like “Out Of Limits,” “Walk Don’t Run 64′,” and “Pipeline.” I don’t remember which album was my favorite. Golden Greats is a good candidate. They tended to put the same songs on multiple albums, it seems.

When I was in ninth grade I was introduced to The Cure. Not the actual band members though, that would have been quite amazing. I started playing guitar the following year. I would try to learn the songs, working from my rudimentary catalog of chords. I was influenced by the timbres they used and certainly their melodic approach.

This affinity for The Cure later manifested in record collecting. I guess I was following in my father’s footsteps. I had a modest collection at a point. One of the rarer ones was the first 7″ release of “Killing An Arab” on Small Wonder Records before they went to Fiction. I really like almost all of their records. Disintegration might be their finest from start to finish.

I guess if I had to have a guitar hero of sorts, it might be Johnny Marr of The Smiths. He is a master of creating melodic layers with the guitar without the harmonic space getting cluttered. Hatful of Hollow has alway been one of my favorites.

I first had a cassette copy of it that a friend made for me. Years later I saw copy on vinyl and had to grab it. It wasn’t that it was a particularly rare record but I was taken by how cool the art looked on 12″ by 12″ material.”
Clark Fraley, Guitar and Synth
