It was okay, I suppose, well, no. I was going to try be nice, but these guys mangle the song. There's far too much frilly stuff on those banjos, and the singers voice. Argh.I'm aware that not everybody likes Richard Thompson, but I'm thinking his worst performance would be better than this.
I've been thinking some more and have come the conclusion that, for me, it's just the song. I do realize why you like it, I think, but a legendary motorcycle deserves a better song. The music, not the words. For me.
This is the first time I've heard the band. I see that they played with The Chieftans. I think everyone's played with The Chieftans at one time or another.
You must be at least minimally sober to comment!
