And almost in time for Passover, here's friend of PowerPop (and moi) Marc Jonson and his (dare I say infectious?) musical response to our current crisis, "Crank Up the Marshall."
Seems like good advice, I think.
Long-time readers know who Marc is, but just to reiterate, he's kind of a genuine power pop legend/cult figure. He's written songs that have been covered by The Roches, Dave Edmunds, and Robert Gordon; a little closer to home, he also wrote this song for The Floor Models back in the day...
...and graciously contributed the astounding background vocals when we finally got around to recording it last year.
I should also add that his album 12 in a Room...
...is an absolute genre masterpiece that should be in everybody's collection.
And that he will always be aces in my book for having sung the background vocals on Willie Nile's classic first album.
Oh, and have I mentioned that in 2018 he did this transplendent song in honor of the late great Pat DiNizio of The Smithereens?
I've said it before and I'll say it again -- I have been blessed over the years to have ridiculously talented friends.
And if I haven't said it before -- thanks Marc. For everything.
