Burgess spoke about working with Gordon: “What I love about working with Peter is that in the late 70s with Peter Zummo and Arthur Russell and all the New York cats at The Kitchen, they were all making futuristic records.”  He continues: “Now Peter in his mid-60s is still looking to do that.  It’s the world I want to be in.”
