Strix the harbinger
guards the exit gate, quizzing all
Who will pass this night?

Johnny Too Bad

Reverend Dick over at the Church of the Sweet Ride was having a Steve Earle moment this morning. I am stealing his moment. Thanks Rev. Johnny Too Bad was on the Copperhead Road CD, a little herion aided pre-prison Steve. The V-Roys are actually a group of British lads called The Pogues. The contrast between the outlaw Earle and the middle-class neat Brits is fun. The CD version also has an over-dub by a Jamaican, who name escapes me at the moment. Seems as if there is a lot of that "escapes me" going around lately.

Saw Steve Earle a few years back in Taos at a music festival. It was a good set.
