John Bazz from the legendary rockabilly band The Blasters gave me the opportunity to give you folks an exclusive first look into their new album, Fun On Saturday Night, releasing on July 3rd! Awesome, right?! Take a look at the new album cover.
And what’s a first look at a new album, if there’s no music to be heard!
He sent me their cover of Johnny Cash & June Carter’s, Jackson. Have ya heard of it? You know, that one couple… Now, we all know The Blasters is an all male group. So, who could they possibly have sing the female verses? Well, none other than Exene Cervenka from the legendary punk band X! Yeah, any more badassery and the world would implode.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to load the song through this site. But, I was however, able to load it onto my Tumblr! So, click here to head to my Tumblr, to get an exclusive sneak peak at this badass cover!
Big thanks again, John!
Until the next time folks.

Ahh… Viva. Las. Vegas. What’s there to say about it? Even if you’re an elitist who now hates the event for all the newcomers who have “ruined” it, you’ve got to admit… it’s a ball. I mean, really, who doesn’t enjoy drinking with people from all over the world, hearing music we dig 24/7, and for us fellas, the babes??? I sure as hell dig it!
From waiting in that inevitable line for your morning coffee, talking to a burlesque babe about beavers, to passing out drunk in the afternoon, just to wake up and do it all over again an hour later, it’s safe to say that no matter how many years you have gone to Viva Las Vegas, you still won’t have enough time to do everything. While this was only my second VLV, it was far better than my first one, and I know it can only get better with the years and friends to come!

I do like the original version by Little Willie John, but The Blasters sound just really make this song.
