Wednesday was cocaine, Thursday was kerosene, Friday night I laid in the devil’s arms

Well, the correct package finally arrived, and I have an announcement to make.

If you like The Hold Steady, Bringing It All Back Home, Jim Carroll, the Replacements’ Hootenanny, the scruffy young Springsteen, Graham Parker’s output from 1976 to 1979, X’s Los Angeles, and stumbling home at 3:00 a.m. with liquor on your breath and the great poets on your tongue, you must check out the Ike Reilly Assassination’s We Belong to the Staggering Evening or forever forfeit your right to claim that there’s no good music anymore.

To try before you buy, go to Ike’s MySpace page , check out “When Irish Eyes Are Burning,” “Let’s Get Friendly” and “Charcoal Days and Sterling Nights,” and proceed to rock your brain.
