Jason Pierce has always had exquisite taste in the songs that he covers. Here he takes an absolute classic bit of the blues by legend Junior Kimbrough, adds the drone and turns it into a piece of mind bending garage rock. This can be found with some other great covers from the likes of Iggy and The Stooges, The Black Keys and Mark Lanegan amongst other of the late Kimbrough's work on the Fat Possum compilation Sunday Nights that was first released in 2005 and then again a couple of years ago.
Spiritualized - Sad Days Lonely Nights
Never claimed to be a huge fan of Mr Pierce, but this grabbed my attention from the off...then it got a wee bit repetitive....then he started singing and I'd never have guessed it was Spiritualized. Cheers!!!
