Lee Ranaldo story + top 10 albums (The Quietus)
 
Lee spoke to an SY fan at Quietus who assured him that “East Jesus” was “very rare” (GENTEEL DEATH... THIS PART IS KIND OF SNARKY, BUT IT’S ALSO TRUE, SO... NOT A JOKE) and talked about his top 10 albums of all time.

Nothing too surprising on the list, but what stood out to me was that Lee chose “Meet the Beatles” instead of “Revolver” or “Rubber Soul” or any of the other Beatles albums that are more clearly reflected in Lee’s musical aesthetic. To me, Lee has always seemed like stylistic disciple of George Harrison, as well as being kind of the SY analogue for old George. So it’s intersting that he would choose an album that is Harrison-light, in addition to being almost completely non-experimental. But I still get it, because it’s a great album.

I was also surprised to see Elvis Costello’s “This Year’s Model” on the list, because I’ve never really thought about Costello as an influence, but somehow it made sense once I gave it some thought.

ETA: Message to Genteel Death, attempting to clear up his profound confusion about whether or not I’m joking by posting this SY-related story in this SY forum.

"Favorite" and "influential" are two different concepts.

Is this a serious thread or a joke?

what.

It’s a thread. Might have a joke or two. Definitely a real thread with a real article. Definitely not a fake thread, or a gag thread. Not trolling. Are you? Are you a serious person or a joke?

“Is this a serious thread” ... the fuck man.

No problem. Thought someone might be actually interested. It looks like exactly “someone” was, and that was you. Unless you’re yankin’ my chain.

You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to greenlight again.

Thanks for posting. Happy to read anything Lee's got to say.
Haven't been posting much on here since... uhm.. 2010? Since when do people complain about SY related content on this forum?
