Nobody's mentioned Sun Ra so far! Nor the MC5 who are probably how SY heard about Sun Ra.

And of course on the other side of things the Beatles (particularly the White album) and the Beach Boys (mostly Pet Sounds) always come up. And the Carpenters.

Lou's Berlin album also had an impact on Thurston. I've got a Lou Reed docu laying around here with Thurston saying that.

I lived in their city, London On, for four years and I never heard of them until through SY

I guess its more of a philosophy/approach than an influence

you have fantastic taste in composers, those are a good amount of my favorites. varese is definitlet not someone who gets mentioned enough yet is every bit as important as boulez or partch.

He'll never admit it but I believe Thurston's greatest influence since Patti Smith was Klaus Nomi.

Or maybe Klaus Kinski.

No, Klaus Nomi.

Oh yeah, lots of that. Green River, Mudhoney, Unwound, Dinosaur Jr., Pussy Galore, Bikini Kill, even Nirvana. They've never hidden that or denied it for a second. Different times for different influences though.
