If It's Tuesday, I Probably Should Care More About The Gaslight Anthem
Hello people. Got to admit, its been kinda quiet around here lately. Dog days of summer? Vacation? Busy at work? Or was it Georgie Fame? Something has kept you fine people away. (I bet if I posted more Rush or Todd Rundgren, you'd be all over my ass.)
As for me, I've been doing some summer spring cleaning and I came across a box of cassettes. Memorex Chromium Dioxides with that tricky box and fantastic smell. Found a tape of Pep In The Cat, Live From S.N.A.F.U.. Early and late sets, dated 2/11/84. Hell, I might not have even been legal when I sat behind that drum kit. I'll say this though, this band had balls.

I'm pretty sure we started doing this Prince cover long before anyone cared about Prince. It was at least a year before Mitch Ryder's recorded version in 1983, which would have been about two years before the "Purple Rain" explosion.
So since Burning Wood activity has waned, I thought it'd be an okay time to sneak this in. I enjoyed it. Maybe you will too.
