Amputation - The Jesus And Mary Chain

from the album Damage and Joy (2017)

A little over twenty years ago, I traded in my broken down ride for a brand new Volkswagen Passat.  It was my first car with a CD player.  This allowed me to "grab a few discs for the ride."

The regular rotation included Stoned & Dethroned by The Jesus And Mary Chain.  There was no end to places I would go with Sometimes Always turned up loud, my trusted basset hound - Elmore James - with his head out the window, a big ear flapping in the breeze.  These were good days.

So now I've got Amputation - the pre-released single from the forthcoming Jesus And Mary Chain record - streaming off my smart phone and blasting out the speakers of a new car, with a different dog's head hanging out the window, as I'm speeding down a country road.

The pulsing groove.  The overdriven guitars.  The sedated vocals.  Life is good.
