Frank Turner & Franz Nicolay Sing Noel Coward

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.
