Mister F and I were back at The Garage last night, a couple of weeks after the James McMurtry show. No free beer from the support act this time, but that is only a minor quibble when you have the ever excellent Chuck Prophet headlining.
Chuck and The Mission Express played a lot of stuff from their new album "Bobby Fuller Died For Your Sins". I have not had a chance to listen to it yet, but judging by last night's performance it is well up to their recent high standards, and sounds decidedly rocking. Here, by contrast, are a couple of mellower numbers from much earlier in Chuck's career.
"Longshot Lullaby" - Chuck Prophet (from "Feast of Hearts", 1995)
"110º In The Shade" - Chuck Prophet (from "Balinese Dancer", 1992)
And, of course, they did this one, as they always do. Fortunately.
