The coolest band in my world. I’ve heard some of the new records’ songs on a demo. Great hang backstage at the Avett Brothers show in Indy. Always good dudes. And they rock like I want a band to rock, with some country, some gospel and some Memphis soul.
Check out this video. Best part? As they are listening to Joe South’s original take on “Games People Play” – great tune.
I saw Mellencamp do a Joe South medley for his encore at Cobo Arena in Detroit during the Scarecrow tour. It killed. Georgia Satellites did decent cover on 1989’s Land of Salvation and Sin album.
Oh, and at the 1:55 mark, the camera goes 90 degrees sideways, and we hear people singing “for he’s a jolly good fellow” and see a dog barking. Surreal and kinda beautiful.
