    Shitty fucking awful it may be, but it’s quite preferable to the alternative. I sometimes think.

    Re. Ron Asheton (RIN), the Stooges, taste, musicianship, (by implication) Beethoven and ones relationship with the aforementioned, I always come back to this passage by the sainted Lester Bangs (writing here of Funhouse, and in particular – of course – the defining Stooge statement LA Blues):
    “I would say that a true Stooge fan, like a true aficionado of Captain Beefheart or the Velvet Underground or Pharaoh Sanders, probably has a couple of the ten thousand or so most sensitive ears on the planet, since they are sufficiently developed to appreciate that Stooge magic which so escapes dullards.”

    I agree that I (and, in my view, lonesomedepot) have very sensitive ears. I do think this taste thing is interesting, though. Take Dylan. I admire Dylan; I listen to Dylan; but when I look at my most played songs on i-tunes, ‘I Love Your Smile’ by Shanice beats Dylan by a factor of about ten.

    So although I know that Dylan is ‘better’ than Shanice, I like – nay, love,- Shanice’s single more. It’s one of the many embarrasing consequences of being a 50 year old pop head.
    Oh well; I’m gonna put that new black mini on my charge anyway.

  4. Surely its fucking shittiness is less terrific for your glorious appearance (well, more like an unseen and largely unheard presence, though no less real for that) on R4’s estimable ‘Pick of the Week’, though… well done old chap…
