Recentering in musical taste is a valuable corrective. For example, the Clash went to the Ramones’ famous July 4, 1976 show in London and decided that they would play even faster than the Ramones, which they did on White Riot. But then what? Play even faster than White Riot? Instead, by 1979 they were doing Motown and by 1982 they were doing the Chopsticks-like Straight to Hell, which became popular a quarter century later as MIA’s Paper Planes.
And who else finds The Ramones sound slower now than you remember them?
Anywhow, both the “Motown” and “Chopsticks” thing are a bit off, not quite Sailer’s usual standard of descriptive precision.
