The Brothers Comatose “Atlantic City” – The Boss revisited

This is surely the tail end of the Covid album – The Brothers Comatose’s latest release is ‘Ear Snacks’ and it features a bunch of covers and a whole bunch more of guest musicians – the lead vocals on this stringband take on one of the finest songs from The Boss’ finest album ‘Nebraska‘ are provided by Sean Hayes.

Ear Snacks’ is the Brothers Comatose’s sixth full-length release and also features the talents of The California Honeydrops, Rainbow Girls, Lindsay Lou amongst others. The 15 songs include spirited covers of Janis Joplin’s ‘Mercedes Benz,’ a nicely ramshackle stumble through the Rolling Stones’ ‘Honky Tonk Women’ and a stunning reimagining of Tom Petty’s ‘It’ll All Work Out.‘  If only all Covid albums could have been like this.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
