Speaking Ill Of The Ill

Posted in Baseball, Rock Und Roll at 11:20 pm by

It’s always a sickening thing when overpaid, underworked psuedo-celebs try to parlay their notoriety into exposure for their dubious musical efforts. But enough about the Air Traffic Controllers, have you heard J.D. & The Straight Shot’s “Shoot That Dog” yet?

On an entirely different sort of musical tip, Repoz writes,

Sounding like an outake from a lost over-produced Barry Goldberg LP (one where they sold the public on thinking that a drunko Bob Dylan had showed up to pass gas vapors on the harmonica…only to have it buried in the mix) …it’s a Gammons cut!

(it should be stressed that we’ve not seen Peter and B.C. Gilbert in the same room before)

    Gammons’ song isn’t that bad. It’s super-duper-competent, or cleaned-up anyway. Maybe it’s just the Missoula, Montana shout-out influencing my opinion. This music is exactly the kind of tidy Hiatt/Raitt bloozrock that goes over _great_ in Missoula. Put the Top Hat on the tour itinerary.

    It’s about 1,000,000 times better than JD and the Straight Shot, anyway.

    Tim,

    you’re about to receive an email from Charles Dolan letting you know a) that this abuse of his son is wrong, wrong wrong and b) your cable bill is going up
