Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

An Imagined Conversation Between Pete Townshend And Ray Davies

“I wrote a concept album, I did.”

“Spiffy. From 1968 to 1975, I wrote, like, seven concept albums in a row, none of which made the tiniest bit of sense. One of ’em I spread over two double-records.”


“Yeah, I kind of invented not giving a fuck.”

“No argument here. Any of ’em sell?”

“The one with Lola on it.”

“What about the other six?”

“Couldn’t give ’em away.”

“Sounds right.”

      Jesus. I made it less than a minute.

    I was sure you were gonna have Pete comment on the record cover.

    “Oo-er! Tell me the story of THAT one. I had to get the Ox to write me child abuse songs.”

      (Having poked at Pete that way, I now also feel obligated to note that he and Rog’s 2019 “WHO” album is still on regular rotation at Chateau JES and is easily the best thing he’s done since at least “Quadrophenia” and more probably “Who’s Next.” I loves it, I do).
