Night Music: X, “The Hungry Wolf”

I could write about the way John Doe and Exene Cervenka fuse metaphor with rhythm in changing ways. And the way X’s songs always seem to approach pop rhythms or melodies, but then back off, chopping off the part that’s easily likeable and giving their energy to the part that’s different. But I don’t have to. Listen.

From Under the Big Black Sun, which they were playing in Soho tonight.
