If you’d asked me yesterday, I would have sworn up and down that I got into Amon Tobin way back in high school, on the strength of his album Supermodified. I just noticed that Supermodified was released in 2000, when I was already a couple years in at NYU. Go figure. Now I’m trying to figure out whether I was, in fact, listening to Tobin in high school, but got into him through Bricolage (the only one released early enough for that to be the case), or whether I’ve just retconned when I started listening to him somehow. Vaguely worried this is the start of some Dark City–style unraveling of the elaborate false history concocted by the alien experimenters who run my world.
