Green on Red - (Gee Ain't It Funny How) Time Slips Away

What an odd trajectory Green on Red had throughout the 1980s. They started it playing a rather unconvincing neo-psychedelia, and after a few years switched entirely to become a rawboned band of country rockers. By the time their 1985 release No Free Lunch arrived, you could barely detect any of the Paisley underground in their sound. From that album, here's their gloriously tortured take on Willie Nelson's Time Slips Away. There's still a trembling organ hiding behind Chuck Prophet's big guitar bends and twangs, but it's all in service of something distinctly gritty. Singer Dan Stuart could have been another Neil Young - they both were restlessly experimental and had voices like lost souls - but I guess history just wasn't on his side.
