This is a really short note here, but to any of you readers who have enjoyed the stuff you’ve heard from Joe Pug on this blog so far, you might want to head over to NPR to stream Joe Pug’s October 5 performance from NPR’s Mountain Stage in full… trust me, you won’t regret it.
The set features two unreleased tracks – “Bury Me Far From My Uniform” (absolutely killer!) and “Not So Sure” – as well as “Nation of Heat” and “Hymn #101”.
Joe Pug… still easily one of my favourite artists for 2008.
Thanks to Sharyn from No Door Agency for dropping me a line and keeping me updated on Joe’s whereabouts.
