Jeffrey Lee Pierce!!!!! an addendum

Wow! I almost missed this. Alejandro Escovedo is not on that Jeffrey Lee Pierce tribute album tracklist either. Maybe he’s hard to get (thought probably not harder than Nick Cave). Alejandro does the best cover that anyone’s ever done of a Gun Club song on his Room of Songs album from 2006. He does “Sex Beat” with a string quartet and it’s out of this world. I couldn’t find that, but I did find this. Missed opportunity Glitterhouse Records. If there’s anyone I want rethinking or bringing to life unheard Jeffrey Lee Pierce songs, it’s Alejandro Escovedo with some demonic strings. Damn.
