Yo La Tengo’s frontman leads April Clare Welsh through a selection of his most played LPs


Grateful Dead – Live/Dead
Even when I was going to CBGBs to see bands I never felt like I really belonged anywhere. One of the things I liked about Television is that they reminded me of the Grateful Dead. I listened to them a lot when I was young. I heard Live/Dead long before I ever heard ‘Sister Ray’. 'Dark Star' was my introduction to something that could develop over a long period of time so that record was just really magical to me.
