Chalkdust - Eric Loves Me

(Even when I call him an asshole.)

My primary motivation for posting this -- though Eric's love for me is no doubt eternal -- is to champion a fantastic cover to one of Chalkdust's other albums:

It's calypso Harder They Come, guys!

Garish red vest, shades, no shirt, mini-fro, big-ass revolver: This one has it all. And look at that belt buckle. I found it at Easy Street a month or so back, and I was probably a fool not to buy it. But the title track skipped something awful, and $15 seemed like a premium for wall art. I don't know, maybe I'll go back and see if it's still there.

Plus it's a nice little motif for the other thing. Rally the legion!


Aw hell, just one more thing:

Tom Waits is fricking AWESOME. Period.

Is Chalkdust's name spelled with penises?

It is like the "Bo Diddley Is A Gunslinger" cover updated for the passage of hilarious decades.

(anyway, yes, hilarity)
