From The Desk Of Delicate Steve: Playing Minutemen Covers With Lee Ranaldo

Steve Marion would like you to know, first and foremost, that he’s a human being. That’s why the New Jersey-bred guitar maestro’s given name is right there in the moniker of his primary musical project—Delicate Steve is both the four-piece live band Marion fronts and the superhero alias he assumes for his one-man recording output—and in the title of his long-in-the-works third LP. Marion will be guest editing magnet all week. Read our feature.

Marion: Got to play “History Lesson Part II” with Lee Ranaldo for Michael Azerrad’s “Our Band Could Be Your Concert” at Bowery Ballroom. The whole night was unbelievable; Michael picked bands to cover every band from his book. If you were there, you know the highlight of the night—amongst a night’s worth of highlights—was Annie Clark covering Big Black, backed by Nat and Brian from Dirty Projectors. She just tore everyone apart.
