Jace Everett and his excellent band gave us a sweet but short concert in Haugesund last night, maybe it was because they had caught “The Svalbard Flu” that it was over so fast or maybe that’s the way they do it. I prefer longer shows, but I know a lot of people who prefer them short and sweet.
Mr. Everett clearly struggled with sickness but he gave his best, and we got some great tunes, old and new.
The following song was described as “A blues in E for those of you who keep track of those things” I cannot recognise the song. It might be from his new album, which he described as an album of religious songs, ” it should fit right in here in Norway”.
Edit: Thanks to Lisafemmeacadienne (check the comments) who told me the song was One of them from the 2010 album Red Revelations. How did I miss that! I think I should also say that the comment about the song and Norway was delivered in a very “tongue in cheeck” manner.
The song has some strong religious images, and it kinda reminds me of a song Tom Waits/Nick Cave could do. Good song.
