THE BODY - TOUR CDR, 2008
2008, self released
Providence, Rhode Island by way of Arkansas' sludge-metal duo The Body had this nice little treat to share with folks' who actually attended shows on their 2008 tour, and thanks to the wonder of thee innernuts it's right here in all it's glory. This four song release has the Body covering Crass' "Do They Owe Us a Living?", Danzig's "Tired of Being Alive", Black Flag's "Police Story" in sincerely crusty form, and a beautiful droning rendition of Sinead O'Connor's "Black Boy's On Mopeds" with a female vocalist (anyone know who's actually singing here?) that manages to coax tears from my grey and hardened heart pretty much every time I listen to it. Not too big a leap there as the original has always done the same thing, pretty much every time.
Maybe this heart of mine isn't so grey and hard.
