“May be the last time,
I don’t know…”: Heavy gospel-swamp-funk from Lanois & Co.
By Fred Mills
Daniel Lanois, frontman for Black Dub and
producer/collaborator extraordinaire (Dylan, Peter Gabriel, U2, etc.), was the
recent subject of an extensive two-part profile at BLURT. Now we’ve got a
couple of musical treats to share as well.
Lanois and his bandmembers Trixie Whitley, Daryl Johnson and
Brian Blade recorded the song live recently on their U.S. tour, and it’s a pretty heavy
duty slice of gospel-swamp-funk. You can also check out their recent appearance
on KCRW-FM’s “Morning Becomes Eclectic” (both interview and performance) and a
clip from their performance on the Jimmy
Kimmel Live show.
