And they said it wouldn’t last…

An idea comes — and you see it, and you hear it, and you know it…

We don’t do anything without an idea. So they’re beautiful gifts. And I always say, you desiring an idea is like a bait on a hook — you can pull them in. And if you catch an idea that you love, that’s a beautiful, beautiful day. And you write that idea down so you won’t forget it. And that idea that you caught might just be a fragment of the whole — whatever it is you’re working on — but now you have even more bait. Thinking about that small fragment — that little fish — will bring in more, and they’ll come in and they’ll hook on. And more and more come in, and pretty soon you might have a script — or a chair, or a painting, or an idea for a painting.

[They come], more often than not, in small fragments.

David Lynch on the fragmented nature of creativity.

"Feeling I Get" by Mary Butterworth Group

In the Spring of 1968, the legendary Mary Butterworth Group was formed. They played numerous concerts throughout that year around the Southern California area and in 1969, they recorded the one and only album they would ever produce, simply entitled ‘Mary Butterworth’. This original, vinyl album was pre-sold to fans and friends only; it was never available to the general public. Shortly thereafter, the group split up and never performed together again.

Years passed and rumors spread that Mary Butterworth had made it big. However, that was not the case. What did happen was that one of those original vinyl albums made it into the hands of bootleggers in Tokyo. Recognizing the incredible songwriting and distinctive instrumentation found within the album, they began a sales campaign of their own that swept the city’s music scene, and it didn’t stop there: The Butterworth album has been bootlegged at least three other times in two different countries.

The bootlegging has created a Mary Butterworth following and pushed the price of the original vinyl album to over $1,000.00 per vinyl album. This remarkable band, as tragically short-lived as they were, will continue to be a lasting part of the history of one of the greatest musical movements of all time among admirers of the psychedelic rock/blues scene of the 1960s.
