AUK’s Chain Gang: Golden Smog “Glad & Sorry”

Following on from Wilco’s Passenger Side, I went down a Jeff Tweedy rabbit hole looking at some other projects he’s been involved in and ended up with Golden Smog. An occasional and shape-shifting combination of like-minded musicians, Golden Smog kicked off with an EP of four cover songs although Tweedy wasn’t involved at that point. By the time they released ‘Down By The Old Mainstream’, Tweedy (AKA Scott Summit, they all used pseudonyms) was on board and while most of the songs were originals they still did the odd cover such as this tremendous Ronnie Lane song.
