The Hold Steady

The Hold SteadyAch, Guys. Honky Tonk Piano, E Street Band-Saxofon. Und bauschige Gitarren, die dennoch jeder Starproduzent gleich als amtlich bezeichnen würde. Die Worte erst: »Subpoenaed in Texas, sequestered in Memphis«. Guys. I think I’m in love with this band. The Hold Steady.

    Am 20. Juli erscheint »Stay Positive«, und wenn die restlichen Songs auch nur annähernd die Catchy-, Quatschy- und Madness der Vorab-Single »Sequestered in Memphis« erreichen, wie sie auf dem Hold Steady Space nachzuhören ist, dann wird man selbst aus meinem Mund einmal ein anerkennendes «Rock’n’Roll!» hören. Bis dahin zur Selbstmotivation ein schlichtes »Karaoke!«.

The Hold Steady  – Sequestered In Memphis
It started when we were dancin’
It got heavy when we got to the bathroom
We didn’t go back to her place
We went to some place where she cat sits.
She said, ‹I know I look tired
But everything’s fried here in Memphis.›

Man, they want to know exactly which bathroom
Dude it doesn’t make any difference
It can’t be important.
Yeah, sure I’ll tell my story again …

In barlight, she looked alright
In daylight, she looked desperate
That’s alright I was desperate too
I’m getting pretty sick of this interview

Subpoenaed in Texas, sequestered in Memphis
Subpoenaed in Texas, sequestered in Memphis

I think she drove a new Mustang
I guess it might be a rental
I remember she had satellite radio
I guess she seemed a bit nervous
Do you think I’m that stupid?
Well look, what the hell, I’ll tell my story again …

Subpoenaed in Texas, sequestered in Memphis

I went there on business …
