One of the Fuckin’ Best Rock & Roll Records Ever Made

Listen to Don’t Worry Kyoko. It’s one of the fuckin’ best rock & roll records ever made. …Yoko makes music like you’ve never heard on earth. And when the musicians play with it, they’re inspired out of their skulls…We’ve got a cut of her from the Lyceum in London with fifteen or twenty musicians playing with her, from Bonnie and Delaney and the fuckin’ lot. We played the tracks the other night, and it’s the most fantastic music I’ve ever heard.
