It took me ten steps to get from Ted Leo and the Pharmacists to Yes:
1.Ted Leo & The Pharmacists
"Treble In Trouble" Amy Farina
2.The Evens "12 Songs" Ian MacKaye
3.Pailhead "Trait" Alain Jourgensen
4.Revolting Cocks"Beers, Steers, And Queers" Chris Connelly
5.Murder Inc."s/t" Martin Atkins
6.Public Image Limited "Flowers Of Romance" John Lydon
7.The Sex Pistols "Never Mind The Bollocks, Here's The Sex Pistols" Steve Jones
8.Chequered Past "s/t" Michael Des Barres
10.Yes "The Yes Album"
The list of bands you can connect is by no means comprehensive, but it is an awfully fascinating waste of time.
