You think you have what you own
I really love being surprised by the new record from an old favourite, and Alan Sparhawk's second album as Retribution Gospel Choir certainly qualifies. I'll be truly surprised if it isn't somewhere in my, say, top 5 by the time 2011 comes around, and it is utterly unlike what I would have expected from the RGC. They'r playing in Toronto, oh, tomorrrow - I don't suppose anyone wants to give me a ride there and back, huh? I'll pay for tickets!
(Sartorial note: Don't you love Alan's sideburns? He looks like he could play Sabretooth or an American Civil War general or something)
