While English folk-punk Frank Turner has never hid his love for the theatricality of Queen front-man Freddie Mercury, on this Asbestos Records' split single with Franz Nicolay of The Hold Steady and The World/Inferno Friendship Society, he's going even more music hall by paying tribute to British playwright and song-smith, Noel Coward. While Nicolay does a sad piano take on "Sail Away", Turner strips down and speeds up "There Are Bad Times Just Around The Corner", a clever 'the-country's-going-to-Hell' broadside, to dizzying effect.
MRML is a blog about the devestating effects of culture: music, politics, comics plus etc. blah blah blah. At times MRML will post fine, unpurchasable three-chord obscurica (punk, pop-punk, new wave, mod, power-pop, gospel, reggae, hardcore, rockabilly, folk, country...whatever.) - - - - - - "The otherwise unavailable files in this blog are posted for a limited time and are intended for educational, non-commercial use.
