Down By The River
There is one sound in rock that I crave almost more than any other and that is of Crazy Horse. Ralph Molina on drums, Billy Talbot on bass and Poncho Sanpedro on guitar with Neil Young. Combined this group makes the thickest, downbeat heavy, smothering sound in rock. When they’re on, when ‘it’s all one song’, watch out. Neil Young is already one of my favorite guitarists, with the Horse he let’s go as with no one else. I first saw them as a young teenager on the 1986 tour. I remember that show vividly; Neil Young is one of the very few artists that I have listened to from a child until now. None of these videos do them full justice (though Fucking Up comes close). Pick up Weld of the Year of the Horse soundtrack for some killer live sounds. It’s Friday night, smell the Horse on these comrades.
Fucking Up from the great Jarmusch film Year of the Horse.
