Last Wednesday the late Jeffrey Lee Pierce, the wayward mastermind of underrated
indie mavericks Gun Club from L.A. would have celebrated his 65th birthday. Today
glam pop-punk diva Debbie Harry turns 78. Born Angela Trimble July 1, 1945 in Miami.
Cypress Grove (British songwriter who played with JLP): “Jeffrey Lee Pierce only performed the song live a few times, faster in tempo before being transformed into an exquisite ballad with Cave on piano, me on guitar, synth by Warren Ellis and Guido Benigni on bass providing
a sensitive backdrop to Nick and Debbie’s unearthly vocal.”
Turn Up The Volume‘s best cover of the month, June 2023.
The song will feature on a Jeffrey Lee Pierce tribute album titled The Task Has Overwhelmed Us coming in September. Many other big names are on it too, such
as the late Mark Lanegan, Lydia Lunch, Dave Gahan, the Coathangers, Jim Jarmusch
