Illiterate Light – Vampire Blues is available at Apple Music.
by Walter Price
What happens when you take a 1974 Neil Young rail against the corporate/big oil greed killing our planet and turn it into a bombastic barroom blitz of a tour calling card? You’ll find yourself smack dab in the middle of the uninhibited chaos of Illiterate Light’s thunderous cover of “Vampire Blues”.
In the accompanying video, shot at The Golden Pony in Harrisonburg, VA, the dynamic duo Jeff Gorman and Jake Cochran take their audience on a sweltering and emotional rollercoaster ride. Building the suspense at several separate points just to twist the dagger in deeper and traverse in all-new directions. Causing an atmosphere of pure soul shaking rock n roll mayhem.
“Vampire Blues” originates from Neil Youg’s fifth studio album ‘On the Beach’, you can check out a recent version feat. Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real here, and you can soak up all of Illiterate Light’s sweaty revamped energy below…
