Either you believe in science or you don’t. If you want to say sentences to me like, “God made the earth 29 years ago out of Billy Graham’s stool” or “Every time you take the morning-after pill, Satan has two orgasms,” then go ahead and stay away from Dr. Syringey O’Medicine, M.D., from here…

“The Velvet Underground was the primary source of the sound of the Modern Lovers in their early incarnation, but in terms of words and themes, it was almost the exact opposite. Where Lou Reed wrote songs about heroin, methamphetamine, transvestites, and S&M, Jonathan Richman was writing about avoiding drugs, loving the 50s, and finding someone to care about. “I still love my parents, and I still love the old world,” a line from the Modern Lovers song “Old World”, is perhaps the single most defiant sentiment someone in underground rock could have written in the early 1970s; talk about risk! Who would say such a thing, a couple of years after Altamont and Woodstock and all that stuff that was supposed to usher in a new era, when the new generation knew that everything their parents had valued was a lie? This dude, Jonathan Richman, a straight-arrow among Hippie Johnnys, who had crashed on the couch of the Velvet Underground’s manager in New York and knew every blaring detail of “Sister Ray”. He still loved his parents, and he wanted you to know about it. What a beautiful contradiction Jonathan Richman managed. Punk? Sure.”—
