To quit this horrid act

The Friday OT: ZZ Top; Just Got Paid

It’s the root of evil and you know the rest
But it’s way ahead of what’s second best
We’re knocking off early here at IKN Nerve Centre and leaving you with a classic, but first let me tell you about falling in love. There was this time, I think it was 1982 or 1983, when I went round to a friend’s house to hang and he’d just bought ZZ Top Double Down Live. His parents were out, we took the vinyl down to his dad’s kicking stereo, put it on, the needle melted the wax, my ears collapsed and I spent the next hour with an adrenalyn-stoked heart doing 200bpm.

Just Got Paid live is ZZ Top at the height of their powers. Mighty blues/rock fusion and a kicking riff from a group with a sound that renders homage to many influences but is also one of a kind. We love ZZ Top. Enjoy.
