Weird Tales from Americana Royalty
We are ticking a good few boxes today by featuring Weird Tales the second album by Americana super group Golden Smog from 1998
The Jayhawks - Gary Louris , Marc Perlman, Kraig Johnson, Jessy Greene - check
Wilco - Jeff Tweedy - check
Soul Asylum - Dan Murphy - check
Big Star - Jody Stephens - check BIG STAR!
Run Westy Run - Kraig Johnson -check
Geraldine Fibbers - Jessy Greene - check
The lead vocals and indeed some of the instruments are shared around but as you would suspect if you are a regular to these pages I am opting for Messrs Louris and Tweedy.
I was convinced I had the Jayhawks singing Until You Came Along but apparently not. I've certainly heard them singing it live on more than one occasion
Your star crossed eyes. Your troubled mind, seems you were left just for me to find
Golden Smog - Until You Came Along
Golden Smog - Lost Love
