The classics are great don't get me wrong! I can sit down and watch re-runs of Mash and Gilligan's Island year after year until the bowl is empty.
I know... you die hard hard fans will kick a stick up my arse for this - but when It comes to music, certain classics may be brilliant in their own right - but seriously- they've been absolutely flogged to death for decades. One because their obviously great tracks and secondly, and more to the point - the public will digest anything their fed.
Mind you - this week I'm bringing you another classic...cough cough.
Not just any cover - this one's a brilliant reinvention of the Legendary Marley and the Wailers track "I Shot the Sheriff "
Delivered in true homage to the Man in Black, from Edinburgh's answer to Americana "Union Avenue".
Iv'e thrown a few well known covers onto the playlist because for one, we all know them and two - a change of pace, genre and phrasing bring such exciting life into something so drastically over played and personally a little tired.
I'm not going to wank on about it , just give it a spin - the Cash-esque, almost spoken vocals will paint a pretty clear picture of a mans guilty confession from the witness box and the double bass keep-in the time is definitely guaranteed to please.
I thought Dread Zeppelin were cool but this is gold.
