Ira Kaplan (Yo La Tengo)

"Yo La Tengo on themselves: 
"Ira Kaplan is credited with changing the face of British pop music in the 90s with Primal Scream and their massive album "Screamadelica" (which won the first Mercury Music prize in 1992). Here are his current top Ace selections." 

Jorge at Ace on Yo La Tengo: 

"Ira Kaplan is actually a member of the Hoboken, NJ band Yo La Tengo, who have been making consistently brilliant music since the mid-80s, from body-shaking feedback rock to bossa nova-influenced pop. They're a treasure and a joyous act live, with some amazing dance routines onstage. If you're curious and don't know where to start, their recent compilation "Prisoners Of Love" is a good place.""

(ed. note: it was Bobby Gillespie in Primal Scream wasn't it?)
