I need to drop some internet history here:

I think you might appreciate this Steely Dan conversation that came up the other day with my friend.

Pinko Punko said:

Clearly the most elitist liberal band in the whole universe is Steely Dan. They are so elite even their session players don’t get it. Some people have an aversion to them like fingernails on a blackboard, and that is just family. Yet even Tony Soprano sings along to “Dirty Work.” “I’m a fool to do your dirty work, oh yeah”. Even The Random Randroid likes that song. In fact he’s pissed because now he can’t get that *ucker out of his head.

I don’t want non-elitists to understand Steely Dan. It would suggest some breakdown in the educational system that they would get how awesome Steely Dan is. And f*ck, do you think Donald Fagen gives a rat’s ass whether his whored-out session player knows why he’s playing an acid jazz rhumba?

But what’s so hard to understand about Steely Dan? Upper-middle-class New York Jews with a blues fetish and a Brill Building background graduate from Vassar and move to LA, hiring ace studio whizzes against a background of giant doobies and cocaine.

Like, what else would result?

I play the EPs more I would say, but also go back to the title track for BWTAS. Their finest hour. Pitchfork gave that album a 3 or was it a 0.8?

I like the Spiritualized “…Ladies and Gentlemen” OK but in my mind it is extremely dominated by “I think I’m in Love”. This story is another Tom head-scratcher. Youth has produced for Beth Orton and Heather Nova and Erasure, so there really is no reason for this to be intriguing based on the fact that he is in Killing Joke, because the two things aren’t related. SHAKES FIST AT TOM

On the Nth pressing I bought of WYWH in the 80s, the album was shrink-wrapped in plastic, with that shaking hands logo was a sticker on the shrink-wrap, but it seems the original packaging could have been more fancy.

Seriously, fantastic write up.

Animals was my personal favorite, but I think that the write up on this list is excellent- really enjoyable and thoughtful read. Top stuff.

I love the “Dogs” scene from WKRP too-

Cuz all these other Youth productions are super Killing Jokey? Like the PM Dawn or the Erasure.
