Little Barrie - Green Eyed Fool

Fuzz bass psychedelia! “You know your clothing doesn’t hang the same. You sounded southern when you took my name.” The narrator is talking kindly to a friend with just a slight hint of bitterness. “Been hit in places that I’ve never been.” After listing a litany, he admits “some call me bitter, but I love the taste.” No matter, the music is rocking and pulling me all over the dance floor. “You sweated blood and now you’re seeing stars. I’m in the gutter with my ego scarred.” The break is exciting, complete with a short drum solo. A great jalapeño popper for a Thursday night. Shoutout for Pin That Badge. Little Barrie
