Rip It Up

From the forthcoming release "Reform School Girl," here are Nick Curran & The Lowlifes with "Tough Lover." I cannot get enough of this song or this album. I've already called it my favorite album of the year on The Huffington Post and I'm thinking unless Todd Rundgren releases "Something/Anything 2" with all 4 members of The Beatles and James Booker guesting, it will remain that way come December.

Great cut. Very Little Richard. Looking forward to checking it out.

That's the late Earl Palmer on drums, right, from the beyond the grave?

Seriously, that's some pretty amazingly authentic stuff...

That opening riff "Ronnie" from the Four Seasons?

Great late 50's Rock and Roll revival song! Hope the rest of the CD is as good. Definitely checking it out. Good goin' Sal

Great stuff. Just checked Curran's website to see where he's from and where he might be playing.
Turns out he was recently diagnosed with cancer (on his tongue). Let's keep talking up his record. I'll bet he could use the sales.

Nice timing, THE.
I am writing up tomorrow's post about my fave songs of the year, one of which is "Tough Love."

I'll be doing a year-end best next week, and Nick's CD is in the Top 10.

I will certainly post the link.
