“Mercy Buckets” Reprised by Drive-By Truckers–Record Store Day Tomorrow
Drive-By Truckers’ song Mercy Buckets was one of our top songs of 2011. Here’s more substantiation for that claim. Check out the band’s Patterson Hood and Jay Gonzalez killin’ on the song for WNRN in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Who can’t grip the gist when Hood sings: “When all your good days keep getting shorter, count on me; when you’re ’bout 20 cents shy of a quarter, count on me; when you just need a place to hide out for a while; I’ll help you hide the bodies in a little while.”
After the unplug, check out another performance of the same song by the band at last year’s Record Store Day. Tomorrow (Saturday) is Record Store Day in America (perhaps beyond). So get out and support your local Record Stores!! Warbler in SB. Buffalo Records in Ventura. Boo Boo Records in San Luis Obispo. The rest are on your own.
