Steely Dan’s lightweight music flaunted a dark heart and beat Patrick Bateman to the synthesis by decades. They also knew how to boogie and wail, as the finest collective of un-ragged instrumentation ever corralled into one ongoing rock project. In tribute to the late Becker, who died yesterday at the age of 67, here are Steely Dan’s best moments. Steely Dan embodied and flaunted their contradictions: spotlessly produced and impeccably performed studio creations about unsympathetic losers and aging, horny sociopaths. They borrowed from the most soulful and emotional black music - twisting but not impenetrable jazz, organ-swole R&B, locked-in funk at least as deep and labyrinthine as the Meters - for an antiseptic, whitewashed, downright creepy waiting-room version that sold sophistication to rockers in the guise of toxic masculinity at its most polished.
