take care

r.i.p. alex chilton. can't believe this happened only a few weeks after mark linkous. i'm going to have to write my rambling entry on this later as i'm starting a six-day week tomorrow. in the meantime i would like to post the shalloboi cover of 'nighttime' which is one of my favourite big star songs from my favourite big star album, 'third/sister lovers' (although really i have about twenty or more big star favourites).


this isn't a great cover by any means, but i think the rough edges in and of themselves are an appropriate nod to mr. chilton. the music world is running out of overlooked/underrated/genius songwriters at an alarming rate...
