Christian Marclay Quote: It was part of a financial situation. I could only afford records in thrift stores. Then you could find wonderful things, but now everything is a collectible.

There was an element of looking back and listening to your parents' records and doing something with that stuff. Sort of acknowledging the past while rejecting it at the same time.
