Song of the Day - Sept 20, 2005

The Knitters are back after a 20 year absence. For those of you who don't remember, The Knitters are the former members of the legendary LA punk band X and ex-Blasters guitarist Dave Alvin. Specifically, the members from X are: John Doe, Exene Cervenka, and drummer D.J. Bonebrake. If you are at all familiar with X, you will immediately recognize their unique sound, in The Knitters' version of Steppenwolf's "Born to Be Wild." I just love the combination of John Doe's and Exene's vocals. Their rockabilly version of "Born to Be Wild" will definitely get your attention. It is a shame we had to wait 20 years to hear from them. Click here to listen.

Great remake. As an old X fan it is great to hear their unique harmony again. The rockabilly take on "In this House I call home" is a lot of fun!
