Joe Lally in Bloomington, May 19, 2008 (ipicktherecords)
Gothamist: Your newest album is called Nothing is Underrated, which seems to me to be open to a lot of different interpretations.Joe Lally was in Fugazi. Geoff Farina was in Karate and is now in Glorytellers. Glorytellers came out with an album this year too. Joe Lally and Glorytellers are on tour together. They play Knitting Factory in NYC tonight (May 27, 2008). Read more about the tour in the Gothamist interview. All tour dates below...
Joe Lally: Indeed, it is.
Gothamist: Do you have an interpretation of your own?
Joe Lally: For me I guess it's coming from more than just a few places. But I suppose with the pace of the world and how much - especially here in the U.S. - people feel like they have to be accomplishing. And it's really not just here in the U.S.; it's about the mind and what we feel we have to accomplish to feel satisfied and what allegedly makes us happy. I don't know; it just sort of came down at some point to the idea that doing nothing is underrated. Being silent and going to a quiet place where creativity can come from... It's a number of things; it's hard to say that it came from this and therefore it's that.
