ALL THE TIRED HORSES - BY TIM HEIDECKER and THE EARTH IS A MAN (and Bob Dylan)
During the last few weeks I have been traveling around the USA doing press and holding screenings for B$M movie. I was sitting around in my hotel in Austin, reading this article about the new Dylan covers CD called “Chimes of Freedom.” I had some spare time and thought it’d be fun to try and make my own Dylan cover on my laptop and post that I was angry Amnesty International cut mine from the record.
I chose the first song from “Self Portrait” and started working on it on my laptop and was having a good go at it, but I felt I could do a better job if I was back home in my studio…
When I got to Chicago, I thought, “I bet there’s a nice guy out there who’s a fan who’s got a studio…. I’ve got a Saturday off, I’ll post something on twitter and see if anyone’s game to do a little recording with me.” sure enough a great group of dudes answered my call, and on Saturday afternoon I headed out to Wicker Park to build the tracks for this song.
These young gents couldn’t have been nicer and more eager to record… By the way, their band is called The Earth is a Man
I hope you enjoy it! I don’t really know why I did it!!
