Whatever – hit the ‘play’ button on this little beauty, and everything will seem alright!
DIAMOND RUGS are the blue-collar super-group featuring members of Deer Tick, Black Lips, Los Lobos, Dead Confederate & Six Finger Satellite, and they are set to release their first album. The eponymous long-player will be available from next week (25th March) and although I have not yet heard it, if this single (released on the same day) is anything to go by, then we’re in for a treat.
From the opening drum rhythm (Chubby Checker-esque) to the vocal delivery of John McCauley (Jonathan Richman-esque) ‘Hightail’ will have your feet tapping from start to finish.
I’ll make sure I get round to the album in the next few days and get a word or two posted here. Think it may be one to watch out for!
