look beneath the floorboards for the secrets i have hid

Bryan John Appleby couldn’t be at the All Delighted People: Sufjan Covers benefit show at the Triple Door in Seattle a few weekends ago, so he sent in this video cover of “John Wayne Gacy, Jr.” and …uh, WOW.

John Wayne Gacy, Jr. (Sufjan Stevens) – Bryan John Appleby

The Chapel Session Bryan did with me is still up for download over here. There is something so piercing about his voice. Also: Sufjan himself played the Triple Door back in 2005. You can download the KEXP broadcast of that show here, still.

  • [...] Missed this cover completely – I mean it sounded familiar that he did it, I think, but then found it yesterday on the Fuel/Friends blog when looking at her Autumn Mix.  So that is where this one is from.  You can find a great video of it over on the original post here. [...]

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
