With a brand new late night show on TBS launching this week, Conan O’Brien has brought in some seriously big guns from the music world to rock his little Burbank sound stage. After blistering performances by Jack White and the recently reunited Soungarden, O’Brien welcomed the All-Star trio known as Fistful of Mercy to his late night cable talk show – with a little added six-string spice.
As if a lineup featuring Joseph Arthur, Ben Harper & Dhani Harrison was not enough star power for one tiny sound stage, the trio welcomed Tom “The Nightwatchman” Morello to join in on the Harrison-led Father’s Son. Perhaps the most compelling part of the immensely captivating performance was watching the live wire that is Mr. Morello calmly perform amongst Fistful of Mercy’s backing band.
Fistful of Mercy’s debut album As I Call You Down is in stores now. Learn/listen/buy here. They are currently on the road supporting it with a sold out tour that hits Southern California this weekend.
