"Guitars from the 60’s really give the sense that we were inventing something new - not yet shackled by electric guitar conventions. Take that vision and put it with something made and finished extremely well, and you have an Eastwood Guitar - a guitar for non conformists." _Andy Gill, Gang of Four
Yo La Tengo
Yo La Tengo was in many respects the quintessential critics' band: in addition to its adventurous eclecticism, defiant independence, and restless creative ambition -- three qualities that virtually guarantee music press acclaim -- the group's frontman, Ira Kaplan, even tenured as a rock scribe prior to finding success as a performer.
So frequently compared to the Velvet Underground that they even portrayed the legendary group in the 1996 film I Shot Andy Warhol, the Hoboken, NJ-based unit explored the extremes of feedback-driven noise rock and sweetly melodic pop, shading its work with equal parts scholarly composure and fannish enthusiasm.
