LOST IN THE NOISE

March 5 — ANARCHY IN THE U.K., Sex Pistols (1977)

imageAs one would expect, “Trouble Boys” is littered with music references. While Westerberg drew inspiration and influence from everyone from Johnny Winters to the Jackson 5, the Sex Pistols changed everything. They helped him see that good music isn’t always about precision and technique, but primal emotion. To this day, I’m more interested in art that is soulful, ragged and authentic. Hearing the Replacements for the first time helped me figure that out.
