Thanks to George for forwarding me a copy of Stay Positive the 2008 4th studio album by Brooklyn band The Hold Steady.
Yet another band who I had heard of but hadn't really heard much by.
I was quite impressed. It is a lot better and indeed noisier than I thought it might be.
The first single from the album Sequestered in Memphis would almost certainly have found a place in my Memphis v Nashville series had I been aware of it at the time.
George may not thank me for this but I can hear shades of Springsteen in places. A band that I will definitely explore further.
