Blind Taste Cultural Magazine 11: Lee Ranaldo

Lee Ranaldo is a child of the sixties and seventies, one of the most energetic time periods in modern history, as he likes to put it.
Even up until now hasn't anybody really grasped the impact of an era of cultural effervescence and fertility.

As a cultural maker and shaker himself, Lee Ranaldo keeps dwelling on the part he has to play in the general culture. He simply introduces himself as a visual artist and musician. And, as such, he strives to challenge moral standards, which he refers to as the morality of the law.

In general, it tends to lag behind the standards of a younger contemporary generation by about 40 to 50 years, he explains. And the upheavals of the 1960's and 1970's stood up against that.Lee Ranaldo and the iconic band he was a member of for many years, Sonic Youth, stand for this generational call for freedom.
