TUESDAY BLUES!!! Vetiver - Worse for Wear

Vetiver - Worse for Wear











Vetiver are an American indie folk band from San Fransisco. They've released over five albums, most recently 2011's The Errant Charm, the album of which this song features on. It is an album that, at first, didn't do much. But it became a slow burner and ended up being one of my favourite albums of last year.



It worth checking them out and also a notable cover of the late great John Martyn's "Go Easy" which was on the 2011 tribute album "Johnny Boy Would Love This (album)"

We've all been "worse for wear" - too many to count and too many to remember. However, a particular low-light must be drinking far too much and falling asleep in the bathroom. Only to wake up leaning against the radiator, which was sleeping on! I still have the scar.  It could have been worse - as only my shoulder has the mark  - it could have easily been my head!

Great band. If you're in the market for another notable (& in this case pretty unlikely) cover by the band, I'd heartily recommend their take on Hawkwind's 'Hurry On Sundown' from 2008 - it rocks... gently!

This reminds of my train journey home from West Wales after visiting you. I had a great time, the coastal railway was perfect in the sun and Vetiver's Errant Charm the perfect soundtrack. Great album, I listened to it twice! I remember that radiator incident, it's a bit rock n roll I suppose. Buffoon!

Thanks Old Pa - heed taken.
On first listen I thought it was okay, definitely worth a second or more go though. I was hoping for something to 'happen' in it but it never really did. I will look into the album.
