Resonant Thoughts: Michael Robbins’ “Equipment For Living”


“I used to try to listen my way under my skin, but it turned out that listening was my skin. Listening to records was not just something I did, it was who I was. Not a day passed, for years, that I didn’t spend hours sitting in front of my stereo or burrowing into my Walkman, learning my way around a sound–Coltrane’s, Steely Dan’s, the Carter Family’s, Duke Ellington’s, Rakim’s.”
– Michael Robbins, Equipment For Living, p. 10.
