Your top 10 all time New York music acts
« on: June 11, 2013, 08:28:02 am »
I'm heading to NYC this weekend. Thinking it would be fun to stick to only listening to New York music enroute and coming home. Help me out by posting your top 10 NYC music acts of all time.

Is Lou Reed a New Yorker? Regardless, I would listen to New York

I'd highly recommend this album.

Played the hell out of this years ago, so good.

He and his New Liver live in New Jersey, I think.

Great album (and I'm not even a Lou Reed fan), but no way would my wife tolerate that on the ride (and I think I only have it on LP). Would any woman?. Should have specified "chick-friendly". (Actually I once had a female friend who disowned me because I told her the VU was overrated, but that's a lifetime ago.)

Soul Jazz does indeed put out some great compilation records, but that one sounds too loud!

I'd highly recommend this album.

Well he was born in Brooklyn, if that counts for anything.

Yes they are.  Though I couldnt imagine Sawyer's Wife liking them.  They get a bit too noisy at times, and their Pretty, soft parts wouldnt make up for it.
