Creepy, Sepulchral Music for Kids
I was checking out the news section of One Whiskey, a Mark Lanegan fan site, hoping to find the release date for the Lanegan-Isobel Campbell album, when I found instead that my favorite musician will be on a CD meant for kids. The guy who makes a living singing about heroin, booze, junkies, burial shrouds, and death is going to perform something called “Sneakers” for Sandra Boynton’s book/CD set, Dog Train.
Presumably, it will be a sing-along.
Sheer curiosity means that I’ll own the thing. You have to sit back and wonder precisely how this happened, though.
