Friday Night Is Rockabilly Night 22

Bagging Area is featuring updated rockabilly sounds now at the Friday night rave-up, and we can't get more updated than this. This song is from this year's Fall album, Your Future Our Clutter. One online review I read recently praised MES for writing a song with verses and a chorus, that could be played on the radio. Not quite- it's a Wanda Jackson cover from 1961, one of the rockabilly greats, Funnel Of Love. The Fall's rockabilly covers are always fun (see also White Lightning amongst others). This is great Mancabilly action. Thumbs in belt loops, quiffs drenched by the rain.
