Credit where due

Thanks for the review of the out-of-this-world music created by Ahleuchatistas [“Out of This World,” March 19]. I’ve been pleasantly disrupted and have enjoyed having my expectations thwarted by their music since before Vincent’s Ear was evicted—when the Asheville Global Report was still based in Asheville, and the ACRC [Asheville Community Resource Center] was alive and well. (Fortunately for all of us, we have been saved from ourselves: The spaces formerly occupied by those institutions and organizations are still empty on Lexington Avenue.) But I digress.

I’m writing for three reasons: (1) to thank you for recognizing and acknowledging the talent and skill of this band; (2) to commend them on all their hard work over the years that led their second album, The Same and the Other, to be re-released on John Zorn’s Tzadik Records; and (3) to give proper credit for the stunning political cover-art images mentioned in the article. They are the creations of Asheville’s own Courtney Chappell, a politically disruptive and aesthetically inspiring artist who is admired by many for both her seen and unseen works.
