jesus of cool

nick lowe knew his way around a hook, and this song is exhibit A. i want this to come on every time i walk into a party. here's a taped performance of some kind (more like a music video?) of "so it goes" from his 1978 release jesus of cool. it's cool how he fleshes out the theme from the record sleeve (below the youtube)....rocker, country star, punk...riddler?

said album cover:

nick lowe - "so it goes"

Love Nick Lowe. Did you know that the US Release of thsi album was called "Pure Pop for Now People" because "Jesus of Cool" was considered potentially offensive?

Great Video clip! Thanks!
