The album art for the new single is perhaps the perfect picture of the current state of the music industry! Quite simple, it is a picture of a turn table with a record spinning and the needle cartridge is a hearse.
When asked about the art work Cliff Meekins, a.k.a. Earl Clifton said it was a simple suggestion of many things.
“It’s a statement if you want it to be, but it’s a fact that rock music is taking a ride on that hearse and I just want to know what happen to it.” - Earl
Earl has become somewhat of a staple in the Podcast world (Earl Clifton Radio) since 2005. His radio charm has been showcased here in this new track. He does a classic Wolf Man Jack like radio voice during the middle section:
“alright, we got the needle in the groove now, won’t ya’ll put your hands together and shake a tail feather you know what I’m saying…”
then the big guitar riffs kick in followed by a thunderous bass, and rock filled drums! This is one of the best rock songs I’ve heard in a very long time and it's one of the best ever performed by Earl Clifton and the Pin-Ups!
