From a 2003 tribute to The Who, please enjoy the incomparable Jim Basnight and an absolutely wonderful cover of "I Can See For Miles."
I bring all this up because Jim...
...is a genuine power pop legend who, if there was some sort of viable Supreme Being, would be a household word.
Seriously -- this guy's been making ridiculously terrific music since...well, forever.
If you've never heard of him, here's the short version: Among other things, he's been the front man of two absolutely fabulous and influential New Wave/power pop bands called, respectively, The Moberlys and then The Rockinghams.
In any event, Jim has a new album out called, appropriately enough, Not Changing.
And here's "You Never Cease to Amaze." At the moment, my favorite track.
And which, I think we can agree, puts a modified version of the "Sweet Jane" chord changes through an interesting blender involving grown up romantic concerns. And also rocks like a mofo.
In any case, you can download the whole thing over at Amazon HERE.
Do it now, you dumb slackers. What are you waiting for?
And have a great weekend, everybody!!!
