Sasha Frere-Jones has posted on his blog a piece of writing by Lee Ranaldo (and edited by SFJ) about the first time Lee and buddy David Linton saw Rhys Chatham and Glenn Branca. The “show” was at Max’s Kansas City in 1979….a really great read. Best line, and a good summation:
I had never heard anything like it before, yet that night I felt it was something I’d been hearing in my head forever. Here it was, in front of me in the flesh, finally in real life.
