I got a double e-mail blast from Addvice the other day about a band they are working with from Vancouver. They are Lions In The Street.
The name is taken from a Doors song, but you’d swear it would have been a Stones or Skynard tune. This band is reinventing 70’s rock for the kids of now. Kind of like how Matt Mays is introducing kids to Tom Petty.
There are some really nice songs here. So go up north, sit on a dock, drink cans of beer and check out:
-Lady Blue. Sounds kind of like Tuesday’s Gone.
-Already Gone. Great rock tune, should have been on Hot Rocks.
-Feels Like A Long Time. My favorite, great solo/outro at the end.
On a side note, and speaking of Tom Petty, has anyone heard this mashup yet of Dani California (Red Hot Chilli Peppers) and Mary Jane’s Last Dance by Petty. wow. pretty similar.
