Some bands like to do cover albums. Some bands want to sound like Paul Simon. Deer Tick just wants you to hear their cover of "Still Crazy After All These Years". It's really just that simple.
Deer Tick was a bit late in getting its holiday note out this year, but given its hectic schedule you can’t really fault them. Bandleader John J. McCauley III sent out a holiday note to fans yesterday morning, which included a lovely cover of Paul Simon’s “Still Crazy After All These Years”. Here’s the holiday cheer from the man himself:
Happy holidays brothers and sisters. Greetings from Westtown, NY. As you may or may not know, Deer Tick has been really busy the past 6 or 7 months between recording an album, touring relentlessly, and just a few days ago beginning pre-production on an even newer album. We wanted to share with all of you a gem from one of our recent sessions...
So here is a cover version of Paul Simon's "Still Crazy After All These Years" with me, John, on piano and vocals, Chris Ryan on bass, and Dennis Ryan on drums. Andy Tobiassen, our newest member, is regrettably not included on this recording.
We all hope you enjoy this recording; and by all means share it with whomever (except Paul Simon's legal representative).
-John & the boys of Deer Tick.
