When Chris Murray, Richard Harper, Matt Jernigan, and I got together to do an T.I. improv around the concept, “Cover Rolling Stones songs so obfuscatingly that they become unrecognizable,” things didn’t go as planned. While idiosyncratic, our covers are also VERY recognizable. Instead of mystifying your ears, we rocked your socks off. And because (as T.I. participant Pimpdaddysupreme once told me) The Rolling Stones are litigious bastards, we can’t put this out as an improv, entertaining as it is. The last thing we need right now is to get kicked off iTunes. So instead, we’re releasing the songs as a New Years Special FREE DOWNLOAD. Our gift to you.
Thanks to Chris Murray for mastering the songs and coming up with the band name.
