Looks Like We're In For Nasty Weather

Creedence Clearwater Revival's rootsy 60s rock 'n' roll is almost the exact opposite of yesterday's Tortoise post-rock. Killer guitar riff, Southern boogie and portentous lyrics- Vietnam, student protests, civil rights, assassinations, rioting. This song has possibly suffered from being overused in films and on TV.

Can't hear this without thinking of An American Werewolf in London... then I think about Jenny Agutter as a nurse... so, er... thanks for this!

Yeah. More rootsy dirty bluesy rock n roll. That's what we need.

And there were no drugs in those days .. No sir. Unlike you spaced out acid popping 12" mix ravers of 1990.
