Cass McCombs is on my list. My list of bands/artists I need to see live before I die. I just have to see them once. It’s not a big list. Anyway – Cass is coming to Australia this weekend, but only Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. Dammit. And I just can’t justify the money to go down. Pretty bummed. Oh well.
If you are unfamiliar with Cass, Aids in Africa is my favourite of his songs:
If you wanted to get into Cass I would recommend – just off the top of my head – “I went to a hospital”, “County Line”, “Lionkiller”, “What isn’t Nature”, “Opium Flower”, “Dreams come true girl”, “Not the way” etc.
