david coverversion: mike ness vs. bob dylan vs. the white stripes

hotel boredom indeed, but hotel boredom in little rock, arkansas is worse than anything. first off, they don't sell beer in this cursed state on sundays. wtf mate? southern baptists are the worst. secondly, it's a $25 dollar cab ride to anywhere should i feel the need to eat. lamesauce is correct. so i guess i'll just keep updating this blog that no one reads. tits! for his first solo venture, mike ness cranked up the rockabilly missing from his social distorion records. not that his straight ahead punk isn't good, i'm just sweet on rockabilly. on 'cheating at solitaire' he gives us a rocking good time with his cover of bobby's 'don't think twice, it's alright', which happens to be my favorite dylan tune. bruce springsteen and members of royal crown revue have guest spots on cheating, and mikey covers a few others for the record--'you win again' by hank williams and the country standard 'long black veil'. again for their first record, the white stripes deliver another cover, this time is the guise of dylan's 'one more cup of coffee' from his record 'the freewheelin' bob dylan'. personally, i think the organ in this song it what makes it go above other versions. mike ness knows it, jack white knows it and so do i, bob dylan is for the byrds, though in other hands it's not bad at all. (sorry about all the dylan david coverversion's but there's a lot of them out there. also, kiss my grits if it bothers you.)

mike ness - don't think twice, it's alright
bob dylan - don't think twice, it's alright
bob dylan - one more cup of coffee
the white stripes - one more cup of coffee

go buy whatcha likes and delete whatcha don't
