Something for the weekend: Bill Callahan and Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy “Deacon Blues”

That’s it for us this week dear reader. We leave you with another track from the made in heaven combination of Bill Callahan and Bonnie “Prince” Billy who have teamed up for another collaborative cover. Along with guitarist Bill MacKay, this time they’ve turned their talents to Steely Dan’s 1977 classic ‘Deacon Blues’ (they’re not covering the band Deacon Blue in case you speed-read the headline), a song Walter Becker called “a broken dream of a broken man living a broken life”. The video is directed by Michael Tully, and features a woman finding some money on the ground and necking Gatorade, before watching projections of Callahan and Billy on a house. All par for the course. Have a good one.
