I was bleedin' on someone, and dreamin' of you

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.

When Irish Eyes Are Burning - Ike Reilly Assassination
(highly recommended for this Friday night)

From the upcoming fourth album from Ike Reilly, We Belong To The Staggering Evening, due out May 8th. They'll be hitting the road in April, check their MySpace for dates when posted.

And turn it up.

That album "Salesmen and Racists" is unbelievably good. At the time it appeared on a lot of Top 10 lists, but a year or so later it was in a lot 99 cent bins.

I can't recommend it too much -- Dylan, a hip-hop influence, and swaggering rock. Most of all fantastic lyrics.
