If you know Eagles Of Death Metal, you’re well aware of the power of Jesse “Boots Electric” Hughes’ strut-rock charms, delivered in an uptempo booty groove never more than an arrow’s shot away from The Rolling Stones’ Brown Sugar. You know how hard the good Reverend can rock it – now Antiquiet’s got an exclusive download to add a little sexfunk in your Friday.
We recently spent the day with Jesse, who showed us around his favorite Los Angeles digs while sacrificing many plants to the fire gods, arguing about politics & religion and spinning some jaw-dropping rock n’ roll yarns. That shitkicking riot of weird is a story for another day, but in the midst of it we were also witness to a dose of musical history, Boots Electric style. Among some of the more ridiculously delicious things Jesse played for us was his own cover of Guns N’ Roses’ classic reckless-living jam It’s So Easy.
Naturally, the band that GNR nucleus Axl Rose personally dubbed the “Pigeons Of Shit Metal” has taken the song, smacked it up, flipped it, rubbed it down – and the end result is sexy as a motherfucker. The best part? AQ’s hooking you up with the song, courtesy of Jesse himself. Downloads are on hold until we switch to a different host – stay tuned.
Update: Soundcloud seems to have put a stop to the free downloads.
Eagles Of Death Metal are about to embark on their next record, with Queens Of The Stone Age’s Joshua Homme back behind the kit and the knobs. Keep up with that on the official EODM site and Facebook.
