"There is a certain type of guitar sound that leaves all others standing, and it's a specifically non-rock sound. It's sharp, jagged sparks of rhythm. You can hear it on Robert Quine's work with the Voidoids, and in Wilko Johnson's time with Doctor Feelgood. It's there on Keith Hudson's 'Pick A Dub' and the Crown Heights Affair's 'Dancin''. Yet its heyday was down with the epochal melting pot of punk / funk / art / jazz / dub / disco, and Pat Place led that field in the late '70s / early '80s."
Kevin Pearce on Bush Tetras, from way back in 1996.
