i know i do a lot of stuff on artists that may not be the “flavor o’ the month” but that sure as hell doesnt mean that they aint relevant in today’s music landscape. as we consume music at an alarming rate, i often wonder how many of these artists have actual staying power to last more than two records, which in the ever wandering mind of the every day music junkie its a fuckin lifetime. i am guilty as anyone of not giving would be fantastic records, cause i off to the next best thing. always looking for that instant gratification, instead of letting the music sink into my psyche and marinate for awhile. it absolutely lessens any artists chance to make an impression on any of us.
off my horse now, and i give you a lady thats been around for some time. mary lou lord has the voice of an angel and it appears now to have the body of a chick from fear factor. back in the day, cobain’s old lady had some kind of beef with mary lou because me thinks she used to get it on with kurdt. she used to, and maybe still, busk in the boston city subways and even offered up a recording, live city sounds, of her doing so. in the words of ferris bueller, the recording is quite “choice.” she had a brief stint on a major, but is currently unsigned it saddens me to report. while she does not write much of her own material, one of her main supporters is the always fabulous and fabulously groomed, nick soloman of bevis frond fame. an artist to could do a lot worse than having him write your songs.
i figured you out
in keeping with a running theme around the internets, i am throwing my hat into the ring and offering up a cover song of cher’s song believe performed by bedhead. while this may have been blasted on the web a few years ago, its still pretty damn funny and quite unusual.
