Video: Jason Ringenberg with Rough Shop, "Trail of Tears" (Guadalcanal Diary)


Well, here's something you don't see every day: an artist covering Marietta, Georgia, '80s jangle-twang popsters Guadalcanal Diary. Thanks to Roy for capturing Jason Ringenberg (backed by locals Rough Shop) covering GC's fabulous tune "Trail of Tears." (Click on the link for a more detailed show review featuring words on the Linemen and Rough Shop, too.) Self-indulgent GC geek-out after the jump. Bizarrely enough, I gave GC's album Flip-Flop a spin a few weeks ago, and it had some great stuff on there. Wonder if any of our fine record stores have any more used GC handy...
