Nights At The Roundtable with Singer-Songwriter/co-founder of Screaming Trees/former member of Queens Of the Stoneage in a track from his second solo album Whiskey For The Holy Ghost - "Wheels".
September 6, 2011

Mark Lanegan - Objects in mirror are . . . .never mind.

A nod tonight to the co-founder of 90's Seattle phenomenon Screaming Trees Mark Lanegan and his amazing (and somewhat under appreciated) work as singer-songwriter. Tonight's track comes via his second solo album Whiskey For The Holy Ghost, an album that took three years to put together and whose master tapes almost wound up at the bottom of a pond (lucky for us, not). It was released in 1994.

Wheels comes from the sampler/magazine Volume that came out in the UK in the 90's. Even then, he was on to something.
