Calexico covers The Clash’s “Guns Of Brixton.”

The Guns of Brixton

When they kick out your front door

How you gonna come?

With your hands on your head

Or on the trigger of your gun

When the law break in

How you gonna go?

Shot down on the pavement

Or waiting in death row

You can crush us

You can bruise us

But you’ll have to answer to

Oh, Guns of Brixton

The money feels good

And your life you like it well

But surely your time will come

As in heaven, as in hell

You see, he feels like Ivan

Born under the Brixton sun

His game is called survivin’

At the end of the harder they come

You know it means no mercy

They caught him with a gun

No need for the Black Maria

Goodbye to the Brixton sun

You can crush us

You can bruise us

But you’ll have to answer to

Oh, the guns of Brixton

When they kick out your front door

How you gonna come?

With your hands on your head

Or on the trigger of your gun

You can crush us

You can bruise us

And even shoot us

But oh, the guns of Brixton

Shot down on the pavement

Waiting in death row

His game was survivin’

As in heaven as in hell

You can crush us

You can bruise us

But you’ll have to answer to

Oh, the guns of Brixton

Oh, the guns of Brixton

Oh, the guns of Brixton

Oh, the guns of Brixton

Oh, the guns of Brixton

THIS IS OUR MUSIC: Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – “The Weeping Song”.

A standout of Cave’s The Good Son album, “The Weeping Song” is actually a duet between Cave and fellow Underwood obsessive and bandmate Blixa Bargeld, who between them create an astonishing, back-and-forth dramatic tale of loss, horror, and sadness.

“The Weeping Song” takes Cave’s ear for theatrical, almost Biblical imagery and lets it loose on a deceptively peaceful arrangement. Thomas Wydler adds just enough punch to his drumming when it counts, though, while Bargeld’s quiet guitar lines suddenly cut through just when needed, adding to the miniature climaxes right before each chorus. Bargeld and Cave trade their lines with split-second timing, and Mick Harvey adds what almost sounds like flamenco percussion as well.
