A new tune from a band I recently heard about and can’t get enough of, Ike Reilly Assassination is from Chicago and make fun, no-nonsense guitar rock. Recommended for fans of Lucero, Springsteen, Roger Clyne, Jon Spencer or just anyone who likes a little rock ‘n’ roll now and again.
From the opening lyric, “I belong to the staggering evening, I belong to the sweltering night,” this song could be the perfect way to wish you off into your weekends. It’s pretty much about drinking and fighting, broken noses, Violent Femmes concerts, lesbians, smashed balls, and Serbian girls — so basically my average weekend.
