Glitterhouse records is releasing Axels & Sockets, the third installment in the Jeffrey Lee Pierce Sessions Project, a series of tribute albums dedicated to the late frontman of The Gun Club. Pierce, who passed away in 1996, originally released "Nobody's City" on 1987's Mother Juno, and now the track has been updated by Iggy Pop, Nick Cave, and Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore.
The track is a close approximation to the original, with Thurston's clean guitar playing sitting behind Iggy's piercing vocals. Nick Cave's booming baritone joins in for the choruses before Moore rips up a searing guitar solo. While it lacks Pierce's gruff vocals, song has a bit more of a rock and roll edge overall. It's certainly a fitting tribute to Jeffrey Lee's stellar legacy. Check it out above.
