Musical palate cleanser, tasty treat edition

In last week’s comments section for the post about the newly named Mayo Bowl, someone mentioned a uniquely Southern duo.  There’s actually a song about it, and it’s pretty damned catchy.

Everything’s gonna be alright.

Its origins lie in the Goat’s Head Soup sessions, and that’s an uncredited Mick Taylor on gee-tar.

Musical palate cleanser, return of the Glimmer Twins edition

New music from the Rolling Stones!

A song the Rolling Stones had worked on last year, “Living in a Ghost Town” turned out to be unexpectedly timely. It’s a muscular, minor-key reggae-rocker that harks back to “Miss You” (along with the Specials’ 1981 “Ghost Town” and a brief nod to Jimi Hendrix’s “Crosstown Traffic”). The video has studio shots of the Stones together pre-pandemic, but the lyrics were revised in isolation, and Mick Jagger yowls them with commitment. “Life was so beautiful — then we all got locked down,” he sings, and concludes, annoyed and rueful, “If I wanna party, it’s a party of one.”

“To summarize, we recorded the song a year ago in Los Angeles for our new album, a project we are still working on. Then the shit splashed on all of us and Mick and I decided that the song should be released now and here it is: Living in Ghost Town. Stay safe! “

I have to say that if there’s one person on the planet engineered to survive the coronavirus, it’s Keef.
