SAD BASTARDS - By opting for sincerity over irony and pathos over snarkiness, the team of Charlene McPherson and Mo Goldner have given us a slice of the Brooklyn they used to live in. A place that can kick your ass and demoralize you, but which can steel your resolve.
By day, these two get their songwriting ya-ya’s out with Spanking Charlene, the garage-rock band they’ve fronted. But for this special project, they’ve harvested the sad ol’ songs of their favorite scribes, ranging from Bob Dylan and Alex Chilton to Elton John and Johnny Thunders.
