Honey Slides Album by The Bluerunners
Thrasher did a double take when he came across this upcoming release title. I wondered if it might have anything to do with Neil's infamous honey slides recipe?
Well sure enough. From The Bluerunners site:
"Cajun rockers The Bluerunners have broken a four-year silence with the impending release of Honey Slides, once again combining the native sounds of their Southwest Louisiana heritage with alt-rock and blues. The new album features a duet with Susan Cowsill (“Ghost of a Girl”), who follows an eclectic list of previous collaborators that includes Michael Doucet and Sonny Landreth. Honey Slides is set for January 25, 2005 street date – the week leading up to Mardi Gras.
The album’s curious title refers to an herbal concoction developed by fellow Louisiana native Rusty Kershaw for Neil Young during the latter’s On The Beach sessions. Having a nearly coma-inducing effect on its users, it’s basically just weed, fried up in a skillet, then covered with honey and then eaten. The effects are along the lines of hash brownies. Between the honey slides and the unorthodoxy of its recording, On The Beach became a pretty bizarre album -- and a favorite of the Bluerunners."
More on those famously bizarre On The Beach sessions. And don't have a coma, dudes.
