A Thursday Moment of Shameless Self-Indulgence (An Occasional Series): Part Deux

Okay, as I mentioned earlier last month, my old garage band geezer rock chums The Weasels have been home recording again, despite countless entreaties to cease and desist by friends and loved ones who feel they've suffered enough for our art.

In any case, here's "None of Your Business," the concluding track on our most recent so-called "album."





Lead vocals, guitar solo and organ are by the song's composer Glenn Leeds; the bass is by the redoubtable Allan Weissman, and the harmony vocals are by Al and friend of PowerPop (Jai Guru) Dave Hawxwell, who also contributes the chiming guitar and harmonics on the coda. I'm not doing much except for the echoey "If Not For You" licks on the choruses, but on the other hand, my guitar is the last thing you hear at the song's conclusion.

In all seriousness, I think this is gorgeous. At the very least, it's so good I can hardly believe it's us.

I would buy this -- and since I'm a real cheapskate, that's high praise indeed.

It must be because everything you post has been recycled over and over again, and that's after you got it from the original source.

So you can take down the comment, huh, sims?

You are a thin skinned asshole, aren't you.
