Stopped over at Sharkey’s place last night (welcome to the ‘hood, guy!) to pick up his new album under the Puerto Rico Flowers moniker, “7.” This is just what I needed right now. And I know lots of people play the Joy Division card here, but I think Marc Masters nailed it with the Depeche Mode nod. And I can’t be the only one who thinks this could go very PiL if the mood struck, right?
Also, can I just say how hard it is for me to get out of the house now that I’m a dad? Hats off to Sharkey and his family for knocking out actual art while raising a beautiful baby boy. Congrats!
Oh, how about a Neil Young cover for good measure. God, this is just such an amazing tune to cover.
