DANIEL RIDDLE, a Portland, Oregon based musician/songwriter has been creating music with his band KING BLACK ACID since the late ‘80s. With four studio albums, a multitude of singles and original musical score for productions such as The Mothman Prophecies, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, CSI and revered live performances, King Black Acid gained the status of legend in Portland.
Here’s King Black Acid‘s newest production. A magical cover of I’M IN LOVE WITH A GIRL. An affecting lovey-dovey gem by BIG STAR, the rock ‘n pop cult band formed in the 70s
by the late, great ALEX CHILTON. On first hearing, I was convinced that this starry-eyed version was actually an interpretation by psych junks ‘The Flaming Lips’ as it has that misty fairytale Lips tone, but it’s definitely Riddle‘s sensitive, almost spiritual rendition. Press the button and dream away…
Original by cult legends BIG STAR…
King Black Acid will release the song (with a The Carpenters
cover on the flip side) as a 7” on bubblegum pink vinyl 27 April.
