Certainly. I’ve always been more interested in 60s-80s music than current trends, although I obviously try to keep track of what’s going on in the zeitgeist. But my heart definitely lies within the immediacy of beat music and records from those times, and, although I have a large array of influences and don’t set out to make music specifically evoking that era, it usually ends up that way. I guess it’s in my DNA.
In terms of all-time favorites, I love Brian Eno, John Cale, The Kinks, Judee Sill, Pere Ubu, Electric Light Orchestra, The Everly Brothers, Guided By Voices, Jeff Lynne, The Pretty Things, The Beau Brummels, and Bobby Fuller, to name a few.
