A few months back I went to First Avenue’s annual John Lennon tribute in Minneapolis. It was a good night despite the shit acoustics at First Ave, but one thing I forgot to do was pick up their album, the Minnesota Beatle Project: Vol. 2. Well, I had completely forgotten about it until I saw the official video of Cory Chisel’s cover of “Fixing A Hole”, one of the sixteen tracks on the album.
Cory Chisel and The Wandering Sons covered this classic with class. Cory’s eerie, coolheaded echoes backed by some tripped out instrumentals set the stage for this dark & disturbing video. The original “Fixing a Hole” was one of my favorite from The Beatles and these guys really give it a refreshing touch.
Make sure to check out the rest of the album and get it over at Amazon – 100% of the procedes will go to music and art programs in Minnesota public schools.
Who does Cory Chisel’s voice remind you of? I’m trying to figure it out, can’t wrap my heard around it.
