Hmm, this is the first time I’ve ever tried to post to my blog from a mobile phone, but here goes…..
I’m somewhere in the wilds of Scotland, but was pleased and honoured to read today that Walter Becker of Steely Dan is a fan of my music! Apparently he correctly identified ‘Airwaves’ in a blindfolded music test, and went on to say good things about it. I haven’t read the article but here’s the link:
I was strongly influenced by what I suppose was their ‘middle period’, especially ‘The Royal Scam’ LP. They were as unique to the seventies as were Talking Heads to the eighties–each stood out as way more intelligent, lyrically challenging and musically intriguing than 99% of their contemporaries. Nice to see they’re touring again. Maybe I’ll get to play support to them one day, I think our audiences might intersect rather nicely!
