Dave and Phil Alvin Streaming New Track 'Mister Kicks'
The Blasters co-founders hadn't recorded together since 1986 - until Common Ground, last year's tribute to childhood blues hero Big Bill Broonzy.
Guitarist Dave Alvin says: "Mister Kicks was written by the late, vastly underrated jazz-blues poet Oscar Brown Jr. We got to hang with Mr Brown back in 1984, at a benefit show with my friend Willie Dixon, and he was stunned that we knew so many of his old songs. He was a very talented and very nice man. Phil and I have loved Mister Kicks since we were teenage hepcats - I hope you dig it too." Stream the track here.
