As some of you might remember, during The Singles - Season 1
we talked about how we had re-made a number of old blues tunes. Well, Who Do You Love?
is another one.... And while previous releases like Backdoor Man
and Mojo Working
were at least a little similar to the original versions, the only thing in common between our version and Bo Diddley's is the lyric. There isn't much more of a story than that - it's just us screwing around and having fun with a classic song! What else can we say?The Music
Like most of our music, we didn't have a specific agenda when we started working on Who Do You Love?
- it's not like we consciously said, "Hey, let's do a cumbia/dub/techno/blues-pimp-daddy song!" We started out with programming the drum loop and insane-circus-clown synth part, and the rest just sort of grew out of that. Take a good listen to this one with headphones, and you might catch the subliminal Zappa
reference (which is becoming sort of a theme around here)....Citizenscover art: "The Hangman's Noose" by Tone Deaf
