The men don’t know growlsWillie Dixon’s most famous tune, butthe version I prefer—low fidelitycassette bootleg, howling tin sound withshredded paper drums—remainsunreleased, recorded not by some venerableMississippi blues curmudgeonwhose name, artfully dropped here,would evoke afternoons porch-sittingwith magnolia wine and box-string guitar,or might bestow upon mesome sorely lacking hipster bonafides.That’s never going to happen,since I am talking hereabout a nearly unlistenable cover,the monophonic noise and mid-range screechof The Knack, live in Hollywood,before a packed house at the Troubador,July 1979. So what if I was twelve?I’d already gotten it, learned how to pluckout the gallop of My Sharona’s bass,hoping someday I’d ace out Doug Fiegerand be Sharona’s back door manmyself, though I’d have been better offlearning how to get in the front door first.Which was the vaguest country,women, or the blues? I did not know.I still might not. I only knewwhat I was learning: that a songcould actually sound like sweat;that Ray Manzarek, gangly Ray best knownas the piano-playing witness to greatness,had dropped by to sit in,and when he’d come down Wonderland Avenueit was a benediction, as if to say, Hey,these guys are all right, forgive themtheir sins of leather tie and Beatle boot.So I want to say thank youto whatever thought to tape that show,because it taught me that I wanted a forevergirl like Sharona, who,as the 45-rpm picture sleeve promised,played the coolest recordsfor her slumber-partying girlfriends,who all looked like the camisoled girlsin the Runaways or the equally fated Go-Gos.But I am getting ahead of myself, since,as Leonard Cohen says, everybody knowshow this story ends. I have everythingThe Knack ever recorded, includingthis version of Back Door Man,which tells me everything that was wrongwith 1979, and later, everything wrong with me.How does the show end? Listento the cassette, a moment in unsteady time,the Zapruder film of the skinny tie era.For the band, you know how it endsalready: rehab, divorce, rehab, forgiveness,comeback tour, state fair nostalgia;immortal Sharona—her real name—sells real estate, million-dollar homes.That’s what those little girls do,they grow up, which reminds meMy Sharona, that set-closing number,may be the saddest story I know.

EMELI SANDÉ | Kill the Boy
Originally slated as the lead single from her debut album, “Our Version of Events”, this track was ultimately cut from the album. Although an acoustic version has been ‘officially’ released for some time now, the AMAZING final edit of the song was released as the B-Side to Emeli’s latest single, ‘Clown’.
This has been one of my personal favourite’s of Emeli’s since hearing about her way back in early 2011 and it’s great to finally hear the studio cut - definitely worth checking out!
