Alan Vega: Then one day I’ll wake up and I’m looking around and I’m walking down the same streets I’ve walked down a hundred times and I’m noticing things that I never saw before.
Dakis Joannou: I mean, all senses moved. Things started clicking, and then we met.
Vega: We’ve been buddying up; it’s nice. People totally freaked out.
Joannou: But a funny thing happened when we did a show that I didn't like at all.
Vega: This was 1969.
Joannou: Everything happens by accident in my life or by coincidence.
Vega: That’s dangerous shit, man. Cement fucking floor.
Joannou: Exactly. We were contractors.
Vega: We wouldn’t be sitting here talking.
Joannou: No, no. Nobody else.
Vega: Over and over and over again, man.
Joannou: Six months later the house was completely different.
Vega: I was in such a state of shock I can’t remember everything he was saying, but it lasted about 15 minutes.
Joannou: Of course it bothers me. Yeah. I remember he showed me the big Picasso mask.
Vega: He opens up a fucking door at least as long as this whole thing and there’s a closet with nothing but jackets.
