MP3: Drive-By Truckers - "Used to Be a Cop"
"There's always been a pretty huge death toll on our records," Hood admits in his interview with us for this week's issue, leading up to their Culture Room gig tonight.
He's not kidding. Nor is he dolling out lip service when he says, "there's a couple of other songs that have some menacing undercurrents about them."
A prime example is "Used To Be a Cop," off the upcoming Go-Go Boots, a tune that Hood says is based on a composite sketch of a pair of less than shining protectors of the peace he was acquainted with. You don't have to wait for the album to release to get the track though. We'll give it to you for free (via Spinner).
Drive-By Truckers. 8 p.m. Thursday, January 20, at Culture Room, 3045 N. Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale. Tickets cost $29.99. Call 800-745-3000, or click here.
