Rising like a phoenix from what we politely call Unprecedented Times, the SAPremes stretch their wings to make beautiful things happen in their very own virtual age of Aquarius.
Physically distant, yet connected by a love of music, this collection of troubadours, tinklers, strummers and crooners bring something of a sonic sensitivity to everything they do. They are:
- Reggie (roadie/enforcer)
(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace Love and Understanding: Written by Nick Lowe in 1974 and covered by both Elvis Costello and Curtis Stigers.
The Weight: A 1968 single by Canadian/American group The Band, the lyrics are about a traveller’s experiences in Nazareth, Pennysylvania, hope of Martin Guitars. You might recognise it from the Easy Rider soundtrack, or from The Band’s set at Woodstock. It’s been covered by some heavy heavy artists in the past.
Wish You Were Here: Ironic that it surely needs no introduction, yet the intro – recorded off Dave Gilmour’s car radio – is perhaps what makes the original so famous.
