Steely Dan’s My Old School

Where would I be without the mighty Dan? This is a band that I listen to almost daily. Every time I do, I hear something new. Sure, they’re clever East Coast jazz-rockers, with a laid back West Coast sound. But read that again: they’re clever! What’s not to love about that? Maybe being English and growing up in the 80s had an influence on me — the US seemed to dominate my cultural reference points. One week I wanted to be in ‘Ponch’ from CHiPs, and the next week I’d be trying to urge my mum to buy me a Miami Dolphins shirt. Steely Dan music seems to represent everything I love about America — it’s funky, clever, inventive, collaborative, confident and sexy.
